Time Out magazine - Jaane bhi do Yaaro on the page

From the blog of Time Out Delhi's Uday Bhatia:
The more one reads Singh’s book, the more one is struck by the fact that Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro may not only be one of India’s best-loved comedies, but also the encapsulation of the possibilities of a moment when a supremely talented bunch of individuals decided to collaborate on a project that seemed jinxed from day one...
Full post here. You'll also find a version of it in the new Time Out, part of a larger piece about the Harper Collins film books.

P.S. Yes, yes, I know, this blog has been all about the Jaane bhi do Yaaro book for some time now, but bear with me. I was in Mumbai for a few days - only just back in Delhi - with limited Net access, and have also been battling a viral infection for the last two weeks. (The Delhi chill and Diwali pollution have not been good for my system this year.) Not much work getting done in these circumstances; hopefully that will change soon.


  1. I can't be tired of discussions on JBDY and Gol Maal

  2. was JBDY Bhakti Barve's first in Hindi cinema? i knew of some of her work in Marathi, but not enough about the Hindi ..

  3. Hai Jai,

    I have been looking forward to this book and I still havent managed to get a copy at OM Book store.

    Do you know which bookstore in Delhi would have it?


    P.S - online purchase would be the last option forme as I dont use a credit card

  4. Sid: that's because it isn't out in stores yet - should be out around December 20-25. So be patient! (Think of poor me - I've been waiting since last year!)

  5. He he.

    Sorry for nagging. Do update on your blog when your book hits the stores.

  6. congrats! From writing the BBOY 2001 with you, to reading many film reviews on your blog - some familiar some having no clue of, to getting hold of a book by you, life has come a long way! What better topic could anyone choose. I am looking forward to it, will check bookshops regularly post Christmas. Jaane bhee do yaaron being what it is and you being the writer that you are, we are in for great entertainment.

    All the best!

  7. Awesome post. Really enjoyed reading your blog posts.
