Title: Gaban: da un romanzo a un film
Authors: Cossio, Cecilia
Issue Date: 1999
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: This article takes into consideration two Hindi narratives: the novel Gaban ( The embezzlement; Premchand, 1931) and the film Gaban (The embezzlement;Krishn Chopra and Rishikesh Mukharji, 1966). The comparison between two narratives based on the same story but rendered through different media suggests that criteria like cinematographic "fidelity" or "betrayal" of a literary text appear inadequate. The novel and the film rely on their own modes and tools to create meaning and must be considered and valued as distinct cultural artifacts. In director Krishn Chopra's words, it is important to grasp the spirit of the novel, then the film must grow independently.
