Movie: Shree 420
Raj Kapoor stars in this Bollywood film. It was the first of our series of classic Indian films.
420 stands for swindler. Raj comes from the country to Bombay. He loses all his money., falls in love, sells his honesty (at first only a medal and then himself), and is seduced by money and fame and Maya a temptress. Spoiler: everything works out.
The songs are fabulous and I bet you'll learn a few of the lyrics. A classic from 1955!
