The World of Hrishikesh Mukherjee (The Filmmaker Everyone Loves)
Description
About the Book

One of India’s best-loved film directors, Hirishikesh Mukherjee is perhaps most famous today for his perennially popular creations like Anand, ChupkeChupke and GolMaal. But Hrishi-da’s best work was provocative, wide-ranging and always aware of the complexities of people and their relationships, even when the setting was a simple, middle-class household. Often combining breezy narratives with serious ideas, his films created a distinct world with recurring themes such as the relationship between fantasy and life, an individual’s journey towards becoming more responsible in a flawed world, performance (naatak- baazi) as a revelation of character, and gender relations in a conservation society.

Jai Arjun Singh looks closely at Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s oeuvre, from well- known films like Bawarchi, Guddi, Abhimaan and Khubsoorat to lesser- Known (but equally notable) works such as Mem-Didi, Biwi and Makaan and Anuradha. Combining a fan’s passion with a critic’s rigour, The World of Hrishikesh Mukherjee is a book for anyone who take their filmed entertainment seriously.
