Naya Daur, a B.R. Chopra classic is being released in colour.  Thats almost akin to tampering with the original.  Like the lead heroine said in this article above, black and white had its own charm... so why not let it retain its old charm, why try to make it new? 

How would it be if someone tried to put some eye shadow on Mona Lisa?

What is your opinion?   Should some originals be retained in their present beauty or can they be put under a scanner and be made more modern?

I agree, somethings should be just let their way.
I shudder to think pyaasa in color ..would be an equally a bad thing. But then again if it can get the youngsters to watch these movies then so be it, i can always go & play the original on my dvd. Then again i wonder if any of the younger lot will be intrested in it. Saw the promos of naya daur & man dilip kumar looks so handsome , i am a huge fan & i would kill to see him on the big screen , unfortunately no one is going to screen old movies in cinema , so if its going to happen by color then be it , i shall be more than happy to see the greats on the big screen any day than watching some third grade bullshit that bollywood dishes out week after week.

Originals are originals and they are best that way. Agreed Thumbs Up

Speaking for myself though, I have not watched Naya Daur and was not planning to do either as I had heard about it but there was no reason for me to go and get a DVD to watch a 50 year old film. Now since the colored movie is hitting the theater, I might as well go and pay $10 for the masterpiece. For people who think it is losing beauty this way can always rent an original DVD and watch it. By producing it in color, I think there is a large scope for the younger generation to watch this movie. I agree with moron (That is a very innovative ID, I must sayLOL) about youngsters being able to watch it.

An Original is call original for a reason! Nothing can ever be as good as the original thing!
I saw an promo of colored dilip kumar movie few days ago...I wanted to puke...they just butchered it...the colors aren't even good for them to re-touch it...all of their faces and clothes have diff. neon colors...it all looks so tacky.
As for black and white, I think it's just classy. Directors and camerman in those days knew they were filming black and white...so they played with shadows and angles which adds to the greatness of the movie. Now with color they have taken that away.
I say ban Re-touching crap! Let the originals be!

i read an article in another forum about releasing the movie in colour. it was kind of silly i think. why the heck you want to release it in colour. black and white has its own charm. i am not a big fan of those movies but i have watched some of the classics and LET THEM BE THE WAY THEY ARE, why playing around with latest technology. madhubala looks classy in black and white Big smile . i watched mughal e azam two years ago becoz of the hype of this movie, i had to get this movie and watch it. everything was in black and white and suddenly the song was in colour. i panicked Confused . i thought i had gotten a mauled video Ouch . on inquiring my friend, he told me that it was during the time that colour movies were introduced so this song was made in colour. anyhow, some things should remain original, it looks better that way.

It is true, black and white have their own charm... however, they are not burning all the black and white copies of the movie and replacing them with the color version... if you wish to enjoy the black and white version instead of the color, you still can! Big smile
