Film / Chaudhvin Ka Chand

Go To

Chaudhvin Ka Chand (Fourteenth Moon) deals with a standard love triangle-boy and best friend fall for same girl-but puts a fresh spin on the idea by setting it in the Muslim city of Lucknow and showing how the social protocols of this culture affect the lives of the three main characters. A black and white film made just as Bollywood was transitioning to color, it includes a technicolor musical sequence. It is considered a classic, and can be viewed legally for free on youtube, with subtitles, here.


Relevant tropes include:

  • The Bro Code: The two men are determined not to steal the girl from each other.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Largely averted, since the two men are hell-bent on giving the lady away to each other without her say-so.
  • Love at First Sight: The hero falls for the girl the first time he sets eyes on her.
