Seetha Aur Geetha
TV2, Astro Ch 102/HyppTV Ch 102, 10pm
In this 1972 flick, Seetha (Hema Malini) is an unhappy heiress who is mistreated by her aunt, Kaushalya (Manorama), who holds the purse strings in the household even though her wealth comes from Seetha’s late parents. Despondent and in typical Bollywood histrionics, Seetha runs off to end her life, but is rescued and mistaken for her lost twin sister, Geetha (double act by Hema Malini), who grew up poor and became a gutsy street performer. The two swap places, surprising those around them by their drastically changed temperaments. Also starring Dharmendra and Sanjeev Kumar.
