Asia's answer to Charlie Chaplin. Classic Films

Because my Satay Club game is based on life in 1948, so it will not be "right" if I missed out on Charlie Chaplin. Films were an important entertainment/propaganda tool back in the day. And it still is today actually. So when you have an iconic character like charlie chaplin coming out from the film studios in America and reached the shores of asian countries, you're bound to have local film characters inspired by that.

The most popular being Raj Kapoor. He fashioned his character based off Charlie Chaplin and his movies and songs were awesome for the people in India back then. Indian Bollywood films were also very popular in Singapore back then, and still is today perhaps.

When I watched this clip from the film Hujan Panas where you have P. Ramlee singing and dancing on stage, he totally reminded me of Charlie Chaplin. All 3 of these men are very inspiring. Their works live on till today.




Movie: Hujan Panas (1953)

Movie: Awaara (1952)
