Sadma (1983)


Sridevi and Kamal Haasan in Sadma  (1983). We post this new image as Srideviji tweets an image from the film, reminding us viewers that the Hindi film Sadma [Trauma] was released... 30 years ago!

Upon re-viewing it, as in watching it again for the n'th time, not reviewing the film, the profoundness of the film, its performances, the music, direction, characterisation, and the bitter-sweet tragedy of it all, is overwhelming.

As Sholay, the most beloved Hindi film of all time, went mostly unrewarded, Sadma garnered very few awards too (none for Sridevi, we might add), though its often seen as one of the best films made. Just don't understand why whoever the governing body at these awards functions are, are so myopic. Repeatedly.
