    Sooryavansham movie on TV
    If there was an award for the most sad and 'tired' film of all times, Indian movie buffs would gladly give it away to 'Sooryavansham.' Infact, at one point, it felt that the TV channel Set Max (now Sony Max) had only one movie to show- the Big B starrer 'Sooryavansham' where he has a double role. Amitabh Bachchan plays both the father Thakur Bhanupratap Singh and son Heera in the movie, which is a remake of a Tamil film of the same name.
    Why is ‘Sooryavansham’ shown so repeatedly on TV?
    If grapevine is to be believed, then Sony Max has bought the rights of the movie for 100 years.
    So if the channel has spent so much for buying the rights, why not to telecast it repeatedly for recovering the cost? We wonder if that is the thinking!
    ‘Sooryavansham’ was released in 1999, the same year Set Max was launched.
