I cannot recall whether we have discussed this before... or if you discussed it prior to me joining the obsessed following
but every time I watch Bhagonwali I always have the movie, "Saajan Ka Ghar" in the back of my mind.
For those of you unfamiliar with it, Saajan Ka Ghar (Beloved's Home) is a Hindi movie from 1994 (
) starring Rishi Kapoor and Juhi Chawla. In the movie, Juhi's character is a bhagonwali but her father and stepmother consider her abhagan/unlucky.
In this clip, Juhi gets married and her father refuses to give her his blessing. As soon as she leaves, everything he owns gets destroyed and he gets into a car accident. When Juhi arrives at her inlaws house, her blind father-in-law is eager to see her and rushes to come meet her. He falls from the stairs as soon as she puts her right foot in the house. Her saas who already didn't like her starts to koos
her (bad mouths her) but then his dad is able to see and the saas
changes her tune immediately and starts chirping her bahu
"My daughter in law, my daughter, oh my darling daughter." Now I don't want any such scene in our Bhagonwali but thought this scene was funny to watch.
Hope you enjoy.
scene is 8:41 to end. Ignore the Kadar Khan and Johnny Lever clip, that was a little weird.
If you need something translated, please let me know.
