Chinta is a 1948 film directed by B.S. Rajhans and produced by Malay Film Productions. It was released on 31 October 1948.[1] The term chinta literally means 'love' in the Malay language.[2]'



A boat is caught in a huge tempest and sinks. Only King Kanchi (S. Roomai Noor) survives. A few fishermen find him on the shore and rescue him. The love story begins when Chinta (Siput Sarawak), a young village girl, takes care of him.
