1942: A Love Story



1942: A Love Story is a Hindi movie released in 1994. The movie stars Anil Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff, Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa and Pran. The movie was the first ever to be given a PG-12 rating while featuring a scene, previously considered inappropriate for young children, showing the actors kissing. The film was a musical hit and was released some time after the death of the music director, Rahul Dev Burman. The film received five Filmfare Awards.

In 1942 the British ruled India, a time when people were either working for the British or rallying for underground meetings and protests against them. Amidst this background, Narendra alias Naren Singh, dared to be different, as he did not fall in either of those categories - he is in love with Rajeshwari Pathak. But their romance is not an easy one, for Naren comes from a wealthy family, and Rajeshwari is poor. Then there is the fact that while Naren's dad, Diwan Hari Singh, is a chamcha for the British, awaiting a higher title, Rajeshwari's dad is actively involved against the British. Now Naren has to chose between his dad's hatred for the revolutionaries; and his love for Rajeshwari - which may make him a revolutionary himself, and set him up against his very own father.
