Mario Puzo's The Godfather and Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 adaptation of the same were not only masterpieces by themselves, they also served as inspirations for a number of classic remakes and reinterpretations in Indian Cinema. While some films were direct remakes, others took particular aspects or characters from the classic narrative and spun their own stories out of them. Join Gautam Chintamani as he takes us through films like Feroz Khan's Dharmatma (1975), Kamal Hassan's Thevar Magan (1992), Maha Sangram (1990), Aatank Hi Aatank (1995) and Sarkar (2005), to understand what makes Indian filmmakers return again and again to the story of the aging Don and his family.
