Aandhi: Suchitra Sen’s National Award Winning Performace

January 20, 2014 | By

Watch Aandhi – full movie online. Suchitra Sen’s bold and convincing portrayal of the politician Aarti earned her the National Award for her performance.

Suchitra Sen, the enigma, the star, the ethereal beauty, the style icon, an actress par excellence.

Actors: Suchitra Sen, Sanjeev Kumar, Om Prakash, Rehman, A K Hangal Music: R D Burman
Director: Gulzar
Produced by: J. Om Prakash, Gulzar
Written by: Kamleshwar

Aandhi: The Story
Aarti, a charming, well educated daughter of an industrialist marries a simple hotelier but eventually leaves him to pursue a promising political career.

After 9 years of separation, Aarti meets her husband again when her entourage books rooms in his hotel during an election campaign. The political gameplay that happens during an election serves as the backdrop of this mature love story.

Behind The Scenes
Gulzar’s Aandhi cast her in a remarkable role of a politician, a character reportedly inspired from the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Although the film initially found itself at the receiving end of a controversy owing to its so-called similarities with the late Prime Minister, Suchitra Sen’s bold and convincing portrayal earned her the National Award for her performance.

“While working on Aandhi (1975), Gulzar resorted to calling her ‘Sir’, in retaliation to her persistently calling him so, despite being friends. Such was Suchitra’s persona,” says the book Uttam Kumar And Suchitra Sen: Bengali Cinemas First Couple.

Gulzar says that he was aware of Suchitra’s strong persona and he conceived the role especially for her. Suchitra wanted to dub for Aandhi in her own voice – a wish to prove her Hindi diction. Though her Hindi diction in the film had scope for much improvement, Aandhi finally established Suchitra as a successful actor in Hindi cinema.”
