Hindi Films With Cities/Places In The Title

The trend of keeping the Title of a film in the name of cities or places is not a new trend but it is very old. Since the 40s such titles were in use. In 1941 two films with such titles were released. Bambai Ki Sair also known as Holiday in Bombay was a Bollywood social comedy film. It was released in 1941 The film starred Shobhna Samarth (mother of Nutan and Tanuja). The other was Bambaiwali (The Girl from Bombay). This film was directed by Homi Wadia and produced by Wadia Movietone. It starred Fearless Nadia,
There are many hit movies with such titles in the following years. Few of them are Bombai Ka Babu, Love in Shimla, Love in Tokyo, Ab Dilli Door Nahin, etc. In this blog, I am discussing a few such films.

In 1945 released the film  Kurukshetra. The film was cited as an offbeat film of K. L. Saigal, directed by a relatively unknown director; it's stated to be a "forerunner" to later Art Cinema
