Movie buffs rejoice. Charlie Chaplin is now in India. For the first time ever, 70- to 80-minute long classic feature films featuring the legend will be available on DVD.
Surendra Suneja, the man behind this endeavour, says, “Till now, only short films of this master craftsman were available. We have now scanned all the available negatives of his old films, cleaned them and converted the restored films into DVDs.” The collection includes classics such as The Kid, Modern Times, The Circus, The Gold Rush, The Great Dictator, City lights, Limelights, The Chaplin Revenue (short films), Monsieur Verdoux, A Woman of Paris and A King in New York.
Chaplin became one of the best–known film stars in the world before the end of World War I.
