I found this to be a cute comparison. Here is Padmini and her niece Shobana doing virtually the same scene in different films 51 years apart. Padmini’s peformance is from the 1952 film Mr. Sampat (with very nice vocals by Geeta Dutt). Shobana’s performance is in the 2003 movie Dance Like a Man.
Not that this isn’t a familiar scenario… The dancer dances to tempt the sage away from his yogic meditations. This is probably the story in a few classic mythical tales. And in both these scenes, the dancer succeeds. Strangely enough, though, as I showed several months back, Helen attempted the same task and failed.
