Check In: Days and Nights in the Forest (1970)

Indian “Deliverance” about 4 friends going off the grid to rediscover & recover but local distractions bring about their comeuppance & probably redemption.

I had forgotten how funny the movie was, mostly due to Robi Ghosh. Even Soumitro’s drunk scene doesn’t look so awkward but Simi in blackface & faux-tribal accent is cringeworthy.

It was a full house at Berkeley’s Pacific Film Archive but the imported print was of such low quality that it should have been called ‘Nights & Nights In The Forest’.
