Three different strokes - DAY 739

On this day in the year 1951 Raj Kapoor released Aawara produced by his own banner called RK Films. He had tasted failure in his earlier film Aag and Kapoor was determined to never to repeat the
fatal mistake. He craved for artistic excellence but not at the risk of commercial success.

 Raj Kapoor directed the film and also played the hero. Nargis was his leading lady and father Prithviraj Kapoor starred as his screen father Judge Raghunath.  Younger brother Shashi Kapoor played his childhood.

On the same day more than a decade later in 1968 released the
unforgettable Padosan which was a coming together of three geniuses – music composer RD Burman, singer Kishore Kumar and complete entertainer Mehmood. Sunil Dutt and Saira Banu played the romantic lead however the film is remembered for the team work (technicians/ artistes Om Prakash, Kishore Kumar or Keshto Mukherjee).

In the year 1979 on this day also released Do Ladke Dono Kadke.
