What is common in these 3 films?

  • Jab We Met
  • Lage Raho Munna Bhai
  • Vivah

At first, it seems difficult to see this similarity but if you notice it, it's quite funny.

Aditya Kashyap's company office in JWM, the reception area of Jhanvi's radio station - World Space Satellite Radio in LRMB and Harishchandra group of companies reception area are all the same! Check it out. ;)

Jab We Met - Aditya Kashyap has just launched new calling card "Geet" and it was on TV, he climbs down the stairs

Jab We Met - Geet's family barges in after watching Aditya on TV launching the calling card

Lage Raho Munna Bhai - Bhai comes for radio interview

Vivah - Prem has just arrived to office after a game of squash

Vivah - The receptionist or Maria aunty as Prem calls her gets all excited because big boss (Prem's dad) has found a girl for him to marry!

I still have a feeling that I've seen this office/reception area in more films, just can't recall now.

Another similar location is actually the white colored swing used in Hrishikesh Mukherjee's movies. (I'll have to look up for the photo of it) I think it's seen in Chupke Chupke, Khubsoorat, and a few others. Anyone remember that?

In sarkar raj, when that guy tries to bribe abhishek, i think it's the same stair case ...

I was there in January :-) It's the main office building at ND studios in Karjat and it is used v.v. often in films.

I love this post! I constantly watch for sets in movies that are repeated. In Hollywood if you stick to movies of the same studio, you'll see the same stuff show up over and over again.

And so it is in India - all it means is that sets have matured. So we can have much fun.

Soham, thanks. I'll have to check that out again. I don't recall it at all.

Jaydip, thank you! :) It's only recently that I too have started paying more attention to little details. It's a lot of fun. We get to realize how little things make a difference in making the whole thing work.

Pitu, hehe thank you thank you!! :D

Chinmai, thanks. :)

Prajakta, sure, I'll check that out. Thanks.

Memsaab, that's so cool! Lucky you. Too bad that website doesn't have any photos of their sets. But I guess they wouldn't have them there, would they? Since they're in the films. :P

Aspi, thank you! :) Yes, it's great fun to watch these details. Make the experience more entertaining. Btw, nice photo.

And all the three mentioned movies clicked. Have the film makers taken note of the same.

If they do, then there wud be indepth study, i suppose.

Kanan said...

Soham, will sure do.

Kumar, thanks. What was the blank for? :)

Suresh, very right. That lobby must bring good luck I guess.

The staircase actually is in the office of Grey Worldwide, one of the world's top ad agencies who have an office in Mumbai. I work there :)
