The truck in ROAD, MOVIE however was used to spread the concept of cinema viewing in the rural areas in a big way. Trucks have been a part of the world of Hindi cinema for quite a long time and at a time when the Indian commercial vehicle segment is undergoing major changes; it is an opportune time to have a relook at those truck movies.



KASHMIR KI KALI : The first movie that immediately comes to mind where the truck played an integral part was KASHMIR KI KALI, where Shammi Kapoor in the garb of a truck driver looked pucca truck driver. It was also probably the first film where songs were picturised on a running truck.
