Superhit Children’s Movie Dak Ghar (1976)
Synopsis: A sick child Amal is confined to his bed in an enclosed room. He is sad at not being able to move outside like other kids. His only access to the outside world is what he can see through the window. The boy weaves stories around all that he sees and uses his imagination to see himself in different guises – as a yoghurt seller, a fakir and his favourite of them all, the king’s postman. Based on a play by Rabindranath Tagore, Dak Ghar brings together a collage of talents from Indian cinema helming different role in the film including Kaifi Azmi, M S Sathyu, Madan Mohan, Sharmila Tagore and Balraj Sahni. The film won the Golden Plaque at a film festival in Tehran in 1966.
