Zara Si Zindagi
Remake of Balachander's Tamil hit Varumayin Niram Sivappu, Kamal Haasan reprises his role as Rakesh, a graduate looking for work in capital, sharing a small home with two other unemployed youth. He falls in love with a struggling actress, whose life is likewise wretched. Fairly unrelenting grim view of urban unemployment, with the usual dose of Balachander moralizing. An interesting study of the perception of government.
Director: K. Balachander
