1970s Classics Mili, Koshish, Bawarchi to be Remade for Contemporary Times

Bollywood classics of the 1970s “Mili,” “Koshish” and “Bawarchi” will be remade. Jaadugar Films and Sameer Raj Sippy Productions have joined hands for the purpose, reported Variety. The remakes will be set in contemporary times.

These three classics were produced under N.C. Sippy’s banner.

Directed by Gulzar, “Koshish” (1972), was based on the 1961 Japanese film “Happiness of Us Alone.” It had Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bhaduri playing a deaf-mute couple who fight against the odds.

“Bawarchi” (1972), directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, was a remake of Tapan Sinha’s 1966 Bengali-language film “Galpo Holeo Satti”. Rajesh Khanna and Jaya Bachchan acted in it.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s “Mili” (1975) had Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan in the lead. It showcased a romance between a depressed alcoholic and his cheerful neighbor suffering a terminal disease.

Sameer Raj Sippy is the grandson of N. C. Sippy and the son of Raj Sippy. Jaadugar Films recently produced “Mrs Undercover” (2023).

Sameer Raj Sippy said, “I feel movies are about defining moments, interesting enough to share with people, and that’s why I think it’s time we take classic stories and bring them in today’s scenario, with a newer and modern outlook. And that’s the intention behind revisiting Bawarchi, Mili, and Koshish.”
