Few years back when i was searching for a copy of Om Dar B Dar, every search ended in disappointment. Everyone had heard about the film, few had seen it and nobody had a copy. As the chain spread through friends, and their friends and more friends, we finally got to know someone who had a copy of the film. But he wasn’t willing to give it to us for the screening. He said he will come with the copy, screen the film and take it back. And that made sense because who would part away with something so rare. This is what you call a cult classic.
Thanks to NFDC and PVR Directors Rare, the film has been restored and is getting a release this friday. Don’t miss this one in theatres. Can bet that you haven’t seen anything like this in Indian cinema. As i keep repeating myself, i remember it as mixed media art installation. It’s esoteric, funny, trippy and yet completely accessible. If you have any apprehensions, don’t worry, just enjoy the ride. And remember, Kamal Swaroop made frogs cool much before P T Anderson discovered them.
Recently Kamal Swaroop posted a status on FB asking for fan posters. And entries have been pouring since then. We are sharing some of the fan posters. The last one is the official poster of the film. Click on any pic to start the slide show.
