Danny recreates Rabindranath Tagore's iconic Kabuliwala

Kabuliwala is an iconic short story by Rabindranath Tagore; Bioscopewala starring Danny Denzongpa, Geetanjali Thapa, Tisca Chopra and Adil Hussain picks up from where Tagore's story ends.

In the war-torn Kabul (Afghanistan), lives the daughter of Kabuliwala, who shows films to children on his bioscope. He spends his days longing for her trying to look for a glimpse of his daughter in Geetanjali's younger version. The trailer shows a grown-up Geetanjali, whose father passes away in a plane crash. In a dramatic turn of events, her memories of the Bioscopewala are revived and she takes it upon herself to look for him. She tries to unravel the mystery behind his daughter and her whereabouts while the war in Afghanistan rages.

Even in the two-minute-long trailer, Danny is a delight to watch as he brings to life the much-loved character of Kabuliwala.
