Can anyone tell me who the actress in this screencap is? Bonus points for film name and year! Another screencap has been added as a further hint.
Pankaj Thuain was the first to get this right: she is our favorite scary auntie of the 60s and 70s Manorama! Ash and Simi knew that the film is 1941’s Khazanchi. Although unsubtitled, the storyline matches almost exactly the later 1958 remake by the same name. Manorama plays the hero’s sister Asha; it is a significant part and so fun to watch her. There were definite flashes throughout of the “older” Manorama, although she is really very sweet-faced and pretty. Manorama’s last film was Deepa Mehta’s 2005 film Water, and she was great in it. She passed away in February 2008, and it was hardly noted despite her prolific six-plus decades-long career.
