Re: Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars

Bekaraar (1983)

This nice looking VW Dune Buggy is seen with the number MRY 393, I think a dummy number for the buggy TMC 393, seen in multiple films.

Re: Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars

From the film Dahek (1999) featuring Akshay Khanna and Sonali Bendre. Voices are of Hariharan and Sadhana Sargam while Aadesh Shrivastava is the music director.

A comparatively new film as compared to those we usually feature, there is a genuine reason for doing so. The USP here are the hordes of Premier taxis on rainy and wet streets of Mumbai. Reminiscing the Fiat /Premier black and yellow taxi domination their sighting is an eye candy. These times are forever gone.

The registration is likely genuine, and the same Jeep MMB 82 is seen in 'Kaala Paani', 'Do Hawaldar', 'Sone Ka Dil Lohe Ka Haath' and 'Parvarish'. Incidentally the registration number MMB 82 makes a guest appearance on a Sunbeam Alpine in Shiksha.

Re: Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars

Mazdoor (1983)

A blue Mercedes 114/115 is seen in the opening sequence of the film. The same car is also seen in 'Nikaah'

Note the Dodge/Fargo Rocket stationwagon in the back - the same van was seen in 'Garam Khoon'

A 1970s Fiat sedan, can anyone identify the correct model? Don't miss the factory stickers on the windscreen.

Karz (1980)

Besides the DeSoto posted earlier, we see a stylish Fiat Spyder that I haven't seen before.

A Fintail Mercedes and a Ford Galaxie convertible. The latter was also seen in the film 'Magroor', and survives in a Mumbai collection.

Re: Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars

A romantic song "ye lo main haari" from Aar Paar (1954) featuring Geeta Dutt. It's lipsyncd by Shyama. The hero Guru Dutt is also seen. Lyrics is by Majrooh while music is by O. P. Nayyar. The 1954 traffic from Bombay with imports all around can be seen occasionally, while the Chevrolet Fleetmaster taxi is driven by the hero. The number of cars though, appear to be quite less.



Please click the YouTube link to view the video.

Re: Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars

Ajantrik, 1958 (Bengali)

A battered 1920 Chevrolet Jalopy named Jagaddal is prominently featured throughout the film.

In this scene we see a 1955 Studebaker pickup

The opening scene to the film shows this Austin taxi.

Kashmakash (1973)

In the opening sequence a 1960s Toyota is seen.

Followed by a Fiat 125.
Old Bollywood & Indian Films : The Best Archives for Old Cars-kashkamash-14.png

For the typical chase sequence, a 1947 DeSoto Fluid Drive is used

This rather nicely made Volkswagen dune buggy was also seen in 'Pichi Maraju', 'Rama Krishnulu' and 'Bekaraar'. It survives.

Bad Aur Badnaam (1984)

Possibly a Rambler? I'm not sure. Shot in Goa, it is soon destroyed.

A Fiat 125 / Lada?

A 1970s Chevy Impala maybe?

It is heartening to see that the Peugeot that we saw in Dil Aur Deewar and Anpadh survives. It seems it belonged to Ashok Kumar himself.
