Chhoti Si Baat Hindi Movie, Amol Palekar Movies, Classic Bollywood Comedy Movies
Movie: Chhoti Si Baat Director: Basu Chatterjee Producer: Nandita Thakur Writer: Basu Chatterjee Star Cast: Ashok Kumar, Vidya Sinha, Amol Palekar, Asrani, Nandita Thakur & Others. Arun (Amol Palekar) is a shy accountant in Bombay who dreams of romancing Prabha (Vidya Sinha) but never gets past following her around without managing to actually speak up. While Arun twiddles his thumbs, suave Nagesh (Asrani) steps into the picture and turns on the heat, prompting Arun to take “love coaching” from “romance specialist” Julius Nagendranath (Ashok Kumar) to win Prabha back. One of the funniest Hindi films of the 70s – is a nostalgic favorite for its quirky take on pre-hyper congestion Bombay. The film established Amol Palekar as having an uncommon comic talent for playing mousy characters, a role he would repeat several times in his career.
