On the sands of time: 1993
Year of choli
M. L. Dhawan
IN Yash Chopra’s Darr,
the narcissistic and psychotic Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) made Kiran’s
(Juhi Chawla) life a nightmare. As an obsessive lover compulsively
craving another man’s wife, he was driven to insanity, believing that
the woman he loved, loved him too. So possessed was he that he was ready
to wipe out anyone who came in the way of his ‘possessing’ Kiran. He
justified his peccadilloes before the imagined presence of his long-dead
mother. In the finale, of course, Sunil (Sunny Deol), Kiran’s husband,
saved his beleaguered wife from the clutches of the psychotic lover.
