Zee Classic presents ’27 Down’ in India’s Finest Films on 24th September at 10 PM

Zee Classic presents a distinguished property ‘India’s Finest Films’ that showcases cinematic masterpieces like ‘Mirch Masala’, ‘Ek Doctor ki Maut’ and ‘Salaam Bombay’ amongst many other such gems. This Saturday, 24th September at 10 PM, the channel is all set to premiere the family drama 27 Down, a film directed by Awtar Krishna Kaul, featuring Raakhee and M.K. Raina in lead parts

The film is a description of 27 Down, the Bombay-Varanasi Express. Sanjay (M K Raina), the son of a railroad employee, gives up on his dreams of becoming an artist when his father demands he come back to the family occupation. He gauges life in train sounds and journeys. The requests of congruity influence his connection with a young lady Shalini (Rakhee).

27 Down is one of those rare gems of the Indian silver screen that merited more credit than what it really received. Despite being made 40 years ago, it manages to remarkably portray the relationship between two young adults as they get together and try to discover themselves in each other through their conversations, meaningful connections and silent solitude!

At the 21st National Film Awards, the film won the Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi as well as Best Cinematography. 27 Down was hard hitting yet subtle. But, the director didn’t live up to see the creative genius that his film emerged into as he died in an accident weeks post the release.

Catch the engaging drama ’27 Down’ from India’s Finest Films on Saturday, 24th September at 10 PM only on Zee Classic
