Nadiya Ke Paar ★★★½

nearly plotless small town romance, notable for actually placing up slang (in an incredibly limited way) into mainstream hindi film.

clearly a labor of love (there is real care given to framing and performances), but like a lot of rajshri films of the time it's like everyone is forced to be nice until the hammer drops, and then the resolution absolves everyone quickly.

as with so many melodramas before it some very unsettling questions survive the too pat resolution.
