My favourite houses from Hindi films

1. This magnificent and mystifying mansion-in-mourning in Trikal (1985).

The film was shot in cartoonist Mario Miranda’s family home in Loutolim, Goa.

2. Rakhee’s eclectic apartment in Doosra Aadmi (1977). Total love for her embossed name plate.

3. Nestled in the lap of nature, Mala Sinha’s cosy hillside house in Gumrah (1963).

4. Uttam Kumar’s bright and modern-looking apartment in Chhoti Si Mulaqat (1967).

5. This dedicated stargazing section in Amitabh Bachchan’s spacious terrace flat in Mili (1975).

6. Whimsical Maya’s warmly-lit, white-inspired house in Ijaazat (1987).

7. The beautiful bungalow in Chupke Chupke (1975) with its splendid terrace and garden. Apparently, it belonged to the film’s producer NC Sippy and was later sold to Amitabh Bachchan who turned into his iconic residence Jalsa.

8. Mr India‘s “kamre ke aage balcony, balcony ke aage garden, garden ke aage samundar” house. And boisterous kids and dead cockroaches to make it homey.

9. The all sorts of awesome castle with a rainbow coloured driveway in Raju Chacha (2000).

10. This elegantly designed and styled living room in Masoom (1983).

I have always admired the tasteful positioning of houseplants in the film and was quite impressed to see the team behind it recognised prominently in the opening credits.

11. The lively aesthetics of Smita Patil’s house in Waaris (1988).

12. Gracy Singh’s utterly gorgeous, earthy and elemental house in Armaan (2003). Also, love love love that green door!
