the only black and white movie i have thoroughly enjoyed (including the songs) was pyaasa. i watched it when i was vacationing in india after finishing my first year of college. i was so moved by the film (the good old days of existential angst) that i watched it twice. the only other b&w film i have enjoyed was mother india (but i watched it in colour which was incorporated later).

Haha..same here. I have a couple of unkils at work who are huge movie buffs. So when they start waxing eloquent on some movie I've never heard of, I first ask: is this from the B&W era? If the answer is yes, I just zone out. That's now become a standing joke at work. Any time I make the mistake of asking them about some movie, the response is, "Why are you asking? It's a black and white movie anyway".

my god, listening to this song after donkey years and mohd. rafi gave me goosebumps:

Jala Do Isey, Phoonk Dalo Yeh Duniya.
Mere Saamne Se Hata Lo Yeh Duniya,
Tumhari Hai Tum Hi Sambhalo Yeh Duniya,
Yeh Duniya Agar Mil Bhi Jaye To Kya Hai?

Before tv came in 1982, our village used to do screenings of movies on big screens out in the open every Sunday. We went to it religiously. And even though I would be playing on the swing sets half of the time and would be more interested in the gold spot or limca that my parents indulged in only on Sundays (thumbs up was too strong for me), I did end up watching most of the movies, many of which were B&W movies and pretty much all the movies from 50s through 70s that could come in a reel. This tradition sorta died down after doordarshan took over, but then good old dd also played good old B&W or old-colored movies most Sundays and was it Thursdays? Other than that, mom would drag us to the theatres every time they re-released mughal-e-azam. Even though my memory is faded on actual stories, I do remember enjoying those. So yessir, do not diss them movies. Dont tell me you haven't watched Chalti ka naam gaadi, and other kishore kumar, dev anand, meena kumari, raj kapoor or dilip kumar movies.

What about Charlie Chaplin and others from the time? And the comedy shows?

i have not watched charlie chaplin shows either although i have seen some clips. i recall watching Three Stooges (b&w) when it was aired by Sony in india a few years ago.

i have seen several b&w marathi movies though.
