Tributes from a fan …

While regular and esteemed columnists do a detailed filmography and tell you all about his life, I got to take a moment here to pay my tributes to the greatest filmmaker of yesteryear’s – Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee certainly made the best films of 1970s. The man gave us arguably the best tragedy (Anand) and the best comedy (tough to pick, Golmaal or Chupke-Chupke?) anyone has done at Bollywood. There was this style he had that touched middle-class hearts of India.

A moment’s silence, and with the hope that someone will rejuvenate the art of making glamour-free yet commercial cinema we all can watch without any apologies.

  1. Anand and Golmaal are in my all time top-five Hindi movie list – that makes him my fave film-maker. :(

  2. Me too Shruthi. Chupke-Chupke Golmaal Anand Kubsoorat – I can watch these any number of times.
