  2. Amazing podcast.. lovely.. Even Mohe Rang do Lal from Bajirav Mastani is totally inspired by Mohe Panghat pe.. girls playing sitar and fountains and all.. and I think in that time people used to come from different far places to just watch a movie in cinema hall.. so they might just wanted to be there for as long as possible.. that could be the reason why the films used to be so long..and not necessarily engaging throughout..
