Hemen Gupta in Kabuliwala


1961 UR

This three-hanky Bollywood classic stars Balraj Sahni as Kabuliwala, an Afghani spice trader selling his wares to middle-class Bombay. During a house call, he meets a spunky little girl named Mini who steals his heart and reminds him of the young daughter he left behind in Kabul. With the help of sweet ballads by Salil Chaudhury, a friendship blossoms … but outsiders are often suspicious of the intentions of old men.
