Zara Si Zindagi(1983)

Hindi remake of Varumaiyin Niram Sivappu, a 1980 Tamil movie starring Kamal Hassan and Sridevi. (I've been meaning to type a post about this, BTW, but I can't seem to find the right words to express why I love this movie and what it means to me.)

I've been obsessed with watching this film ever since I first found out about it. I'm sure the original is better, but I still want to see it because of Kamal Hassan and Anita Raj. Anita isn't necessarily a favorite actress of mine, but I found her alluring in some of her early and mid-eighties films, and she kind of fascinates me because, aside from the most basic facts, I know very little about her. (And I'd rather keep it that way so that she retains the mysterious aura I've created for her, haha.) I wonder how she fares in Sridevi's role, and if she and Kamal have any onscreen chemistry.

I doubt a DVD release is in the cards since, AFAIK, it was a huge flop. I don't think there's a VCD available, either. There may be a VHS copy floating around somewhere, but it's highly unlikely that I'll get my hands on it. Apparently, it can be viewed or downloaded here, but I should first find out if anyone else has used this site and what their experiences were before signing up.
