"Ahista Ahista" (Hindi: आहिस्ता आहिस्ता, Urdu: آہستہ آہستہ, translation: Slowly Slowly) is a Bollywood film released in October, 1981. The film stars Kunal Kapoor, Padmini Kolhapure, Shashikala and Nanda.


Courtesan Madame Subbalaxmi heads a household where men are not born, but are welcome. Women are not welcome, but their birth is. Subbalaxmi is thrilled when her pet protege, Sangeeta, gives birth to a baby-girl, who they name Chandra. Shortly thereafter they relocate to a small community. Sangeeta wants Chandra to study, and she is allowed to do so. Chandra meets her neighbor, Kunal, and their family, and is welcomed by them. Problems arise, when Kunal and Chandra fall in love, as neither Kunal's family, nor Chandra's courtesan family will permit this marriage.

Only time will tell if Chandra's fate is to be the same as other courtesans.
