Hera pheri by Privadarsan ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in Hindi and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The film has an interesting plot that revolves around Raju, Shyam, Babu Rao, and Anu, four people in dire need of some money. Shyam and Raju both stay with Babu Rao, an alcoholic garage owner. The plot thickens when gangster Kabira kidnaps the grandson of a wealthy businessman and contacts the wrong number for the ransom money -- Raju and Shyam's residence. The trio is then trapped in a rough situation, and they struggle to decide whether they should attempt to save the kid, or try to profit from the situation, which they eventually decide. Trouble ensues, as the gang's greed takes control of them, leading them into the mouth of danger. The film focuses on how morality is often thrown out the window when money is involved, and how when money's involved, it's every man for himself. Friendships don't matter in Priyadarshan's portrayal of a greedy, grisly world

Rudaali Rudālī = Rudaali (the mourner) ( Visual )
5 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in Hindi and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Underwritten by the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC) and Doordarshan (Indian national television) as part of the Indian government's controversial but ongoing effort to provide audiences with edifying alternatives to "Bollywood" entertainment, and based on a short story by famed Bengali author Mahasweta Dev -- whose tales often focus on the travails of low-caste women -- RUDAALI is an uncommon and arresting film. Shot mostly on location in the Jaisalmer region of western Rajasthan, it features authentic regional costumes and props, somewhat less authentic (but quite haunting) music, and two famous female stars, Dimple Kapadia and Rakhee Gulzar, cast in unusual and challenging role -- the central roles in this film that lacks male heroes. The title refers to a custom in some parts of Rajastha -- where aristocratic women were long kept secluded and veile -- of hiring professional women mourners on the death of a male relative, a rudaali (pronounced "roo-dah-lee -- literally, a female "weeper") to publicly express the grief that family members, constrained by their high social status, were not permitted to displa -- or at times, perhaps did not feel. Dressed in black and with unbound hair, a rudaali beat her breast, danced spasmodically, rolled on the ground, and shed copious tears while loudly praising the deceased and lamenting his demise; the ability to hire such a performer was a mark of social status
