Garam Hawa (1975) - DVD
Director: M.S. Sathyu
The story is about middle-aged Muslim shoe manufacturer who is faced with the choice of leaving his homeland (Agra, where Taj Mahal is), where he has lived for generations, or remain there to face the utter carnage threatening to ravage the new republic of India. Sathyu's film received critical acclaim for its masterly handling of the sensitive theme of the partition of India during independence from British rule and the Muslim Hindu dilemma. Film won a national award for serving the cause of national integration. "The film remains a landmark for its sensitive portrayal of an essentially human problem emanating from forces of history and politics beyond the individual's control"
