Though JAIL has become a subject of the Hindi films after a long time when Madhur Bhandarkar has tried to focus attention on it, JAIL has indeed been an integral part of the Hindi films right from the time when Hindi cinema started making waves. For that matter even in the advertisements as well, JAIL has been used as a subject, underlining the subconscious association of JAIL with our psyche. After all, JAIL has been an integral part of our freedom struggle and there would be a family that does not have an association with the jail.

JAIL indeed provides an opportunity to have a trip down the memory lane.




The first film that comes to mind where JAIL has played an integral role is in AWAARA where it has been used as a reformist symbol. Reform of Raj Kapoor in the film indeed starts after he goes to JAIL.
