Aakash Mishra

Cast: Rajit Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Rajendra Gupta, Milind Soman.


Director: Deepti Naval.



A sex worker suddenly meets a gay lyricist and provides a roof for him to live, he in turn has to look over her disabled son. A different kind of a bond like a family begins to take place.



Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aane Ki Baarish is a tender film in which the three main leads strive to connect with each other as well as strive in their individual lives. Debu is desperate to find someone that believes in his work. Kaku is slowly trying to form a bond with Debu but soon Juhi starts feeling as if her son is getting closer to an outsider. Juhi also starts looking at Debu in a different way and imagines that can he possibly be the man of her life and can three of them form a great family together. Do Paise Ki Dhoop , Chaar Aane Ki Baarish isn’t an amazing film nor it represents the gay community in a way we have never seen before but considering the time it was released only a few directors dared to touch these elements. What really makes it ahead of its time is the way it cements an unlikely bond in unsusal relationships which most films never seem to touch.  A sweet and loving film that shows Mumbai’s “Bombay” days in a very good way. Highly recommended, it’s streaming now on Netflix.
