So when Paul Schrader was writing Taxi Driver, he was just like... Love and Anarchy, but make it manly ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ
Dad heard the song Awara Hoon while I was watching this and immediately started to sing along. He then notified me that I was watching a famous movie called Avare with Raj Kapoor.
Found out that he and apparently every other kid in Tehran grew up listening to the song (in Persian and Hindi) once the film had finally reached Iran in the late 60’s, and Raj Kapoor became a household name. Wish I could see the massive Kapoor posters that he remembers being plastered all over Tehrani cinemas 60 years ago.
