The film-book series contd: Mughal-e-Azam, Pakeezah, Amar Akbar Anthony

A shout-out for enthusiasts of film literature: the Harper Collins series of books about iconic Hindi films (which began in 2010 with these three titles, including my book on Jaane bhi do Yaaro) is in its second innings. Now in stores: Sidharth Bhatia’s Amar Akbar Anthony: Masala, Madness and Manmohan Desai, Anil Zankar’s Mughal-e-Azam: Legend as Epic, and Meghnad Desai’s Pakeezah: An Ode to a Bygone Era. The authors are all knowledgeable movie buffs, so there should be many good things within these pages. I’ll try to do a review once I have read the books.
