Kamal Haasan revives silent film era; Pushpak set for re-release


Alam Ara, the Hindustani film by Ardeshir Irani, was a major turning point in Indian cinema. The film was the first ever Indian film to incorporate sound as part of the film, paving the way for more talkies to be made in the future. Although silent films still existed, the number was decreasing rapidly until they stopped being produced altogether for a mainstream audience.

Pushpak’s Release in 1987

In 1987, director Singeetam Srinivasa Rao decided to make a film with no dialogues again. The film, known as Pushpak or Pesum Padam, featured an ensemble cast including Kamal Haasan, Amala Akkineni, Pratap Pothen, Tinu Anand, and Samir Khakhar.

Re-release Announcement

Kamal Haasan’s production house, Raaj Kamal Films International, has announced that “Pushpak” will be re-released in theaters soon. The film is considered a pioneer in silent black comedy and an iconic masterpiece of Indian cinema.

Re-release Success

Earlier this year, Kamal Haasan’s 2006 action-thriller film, Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, was also re-released and received a highly positive response from the public.
