Hrishikesh Mukherjee

This post is a bit nostalgic. One of the best directors in Bollywood history has to be Hrishikesh Mukherjee (1922-2006). He started out as a math and science professor, but then moved on to directing some of the best movies in history. His movies Anand and Khubsoorat won best movie of the year at the Filmfares and his film Anuradha won best film at the National Film Awards. Khubsoorat is one of the classic comedies for Hindi cinema, but I have not had the pleasure of watching it yet. When I get the chance to do so, I will post a review of it for sure. My personal favorites of his are Chupke Chupke and Gol Maal. These are two of the best comedies in Bollywood. Some of the supporting cast is the same in the two hilarious films. Chupke Chupke, starring Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Badhuri (Bachchan), Om Prakash, David, and Asrani. If the cast does not speak for itself, let me just say that this movie is too good. It is about a man trying to outsmart his wife's brother-in-law (jijaji). The other movie, Gol Maal, has a cast of Amol Palekar, Utpal Dutt, Bindiya Goswami, David, Manju Singh, and Dina Pathak. This movie is about a man who pretends to be his own twin to keep his well paying job where he works under a very strict and proud boss. Both these movies start out a bit slow but pick up super speed as the movie progresses. I have seen them multiple times and they are definitely on my favorites list. Next time you are bored and need a really good hearty laugh, check out Hrishikesh Mujherjee's movies.
