Good Read: O. Henry in Hindi Cinema


I have read O Henry’s short stories (lost the book to some “friend” – who collected the book and never showed up. Sadly, this has happened with so many of my books – and friends ). And I always felt that many of his stories could be made into movies. Just got to know that many have been!

Here is a good blog on Hindi movies based on stories written by O Henry. I knew about Lootera and Raincoat. But good to know there are several others.
