The 1988 post-modernist avant garde film, Om-Dar-Ba-Dar , directed by auteur filmmaker Kamal Swaroop and produced by National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) is in news again. Digitally restored by NFDC, the film will be showcased at the forthcoming Rome Film Festival this November. A cult film, which never made it to theatres, Om-Dar-Ba-Dar , stars Anita Kanwar, Aditya Lakhia, and Gopi Desai in lead roles with screenplay by Kamal Swaroop, dialogues by Kuku and music by Rajat Dholakia. Swaroop, who assisted Mani Kaul, Saeed Mirza and Richard Attenborough, before branching out, was known for his fiercely independent streak. Commenting on the selection Swaroop, said, “I am very happy to have Om-Dar-Ba-Dar make a comeback, now in its restored version, reaching out to newer audiences.” The film will be a part of Cinema XXI section celebrating 100 years of Indian Cinema.
