Oscar Movie: Garam Hawa



Garam Hawa is a 1973 Hindi film directed by M. S. Sathyu and is based on a short story by Ismat Chughtai. It is about the plight of a North Indian Muslim family in the years following the Partition of India. Garam Hawa remains today one of the most poignant films ever to be made on India's partition. It brings home to the viewer not only the emotional trauma of losing your roots but also the complete social and economic devastation that follows.
The entire film was shot on location in Agra. The film was held up at the censors for eight months due to its politically sensitive theme. However after it was passed it got good reviews and was a commercial success at the box office. The Film went on to win a National Award for its contribution to National Integration. The movie also launched the career of Farooq Sheikh.
