Musical, Romance, Drama


Raj Kapoor’s first film as director and star, the brooding, noir-ish Aag is an ideal entrance point for audiences unfamiliar with Hindi cinema: it often feels like a 1930s Hollywood melodrama with an expressionistic twist, and it has a complex flashback structure influenced by Citizen Kane.
