Classic Indian films a welcome delight at Abu Dhabi fest
Abu Dhabi, Nov 2: Away from home, yet so near - thanks to movies. NRIs, mostly middle-aged, used the Abu Dhabi Film Festival (Adff) platform to catch up on classics like "Pyaasa" and "Garm Hava" as well as new ones like "Qissa" and "Goynar Baksho". Meeting a star like Irrfan Khan was a huge draw too!

The curiosity and excitement in the air was evident from the word go.

For many, the festival, which celebrated the centenary year of Indian cinema with a special programme of five classics, was a rare chance to watch the old films on the big screen.

The bouquet offered Guru Dutt's "Pyaasa", M.S. Sathyu's "Garm Hava", Jahnu Barua's Assamese film "Halodhia Choraye Baodhan Khai", Ritwak Ghatak's Bengali film "Subarnarekha".
