Indian classics get coloured to draw younger audiences news
27 January 2011

The India film industry seems to be witnessing a new trend of re-releasing old classics in colour format for today's audiences.

After classics Mughal-e-Azam and Naya Daur were recently launched in 16 and 32 colours respectively, Dev Anand's Hum Dono is the latest to join the brigade, and will be released in a new colurised version titled as Hum Dono Rangeen.

Hum Dono, originally released in 1961 was the last black-and-white film from the Navketan Banner, which featured melodies like Main Zindagi Ka Saath Nibhata Chala Gaya and Abhi Na Jao Chod Kar.

Legend films has done the re-versioning of film.

''I am happy that people would be able to relive the experience in a better way and hope the younger generation who has not seen the film would also love it the way film was loved 50 years back,'' said Dev Anand.

The film is also being promoted through outdoor hoardings in Mumbai.
