I spoke too soon.  There are only clips.  The films are not available on
video or DVD.  (Shakespeare Wallah is out of print .)

Richard Burt is to be congratulated for having turned up a possible
source for buying the elusive Kishore Sahu Hamlet, an Indian film
denounced harshly by a critic for Film India when it premiered at
Bombay's Metro theatre in 1955. The picture, we are told, is "stinking
selfishness." For years I've wanted to see it to find out why it was
thought to be that awful. The clips on the WEB do suggest heavy debts to
the Olivier film. Thanks, Richard. Ken Rothwell
