1. Chest Hair
‘This looks awful’ many of us might react like this now, but at that time the chest hair defined the masculinity of a man. Now it is all neat and clean.
2. Mouth Organs
Playing a mouth organ by the protagonist was like a ritual which every film was forced to follow. A song felt incomplete without it.
3. Letter Writing
This act was associated mainly with the which involved people in the defence services. The actress would write a long letter before breaking up with the actor, or the actor might leave a message letting the actress know that he will come soon to marry her.
4. Choreographed dance numbers at random places
The actor suddenly wishes to dance, and everyone around him starts dancing with him in perfect coordination. Wish I too was allowed to dance with such loud music when lectures were going on in the college.
5. Scene in Sarsoon Ka Khet
If the film is shot in the western part of the country, then village scenes included scenes shot in the fields and especially in Sarsoon Ka Khet. The actress might prance around the whole area or both the protagonists might just lay down and chill before the action.
6. Sad song was synonymous to piano
The actor crashes the actress’s party and starts playing the piano while singing to express his grief. In today’s time, parties mean DJ, food and drinks.
7. Quirky suit colors
The actors preferred wearing colourful clothes like bright orange, yellow and light blue. Now suits are confined to only colours like black, grey and brown.
