...R.I.P. Hrishikesh Mukherjee.
Coincidentally I picked up DVDs of some of his films a couple of days ago, including Anand, Satyakam, Mili and Alaap. I watched most of his films as a child but didn’t always appreciate them at the time – standard dhishum-dhishum cinema was more meaningful then. Have re-seen Anupama, Chupke Chupke and Golmaal recently, but want to get started on some of the others now – especially Satyakam (I find Mukherjee's use of Dharmendra in the 1960s very interesting), Bemisaal and some of the lesser known ones like Arjun Pandit.
What a great filmography. Nice piece on some of the movies here (link via Neha).
P.S. Wikipedia needs to get some of its URLs in order. The link to Mili on the Hrishikesh Mukherjee page takes you to the Mili Atoll.
