ĎAnhonee ko honee karna hamara kaam haií (Making the impossible possible is our job). The line leading into the title song of the blockbuster Amar Akbar Anthony sums up the magic of Manmohan Desai, the master entertainer whose desire to please his public made his name synonymous with success during much of his career in popular Hindi Cinema from 1960 to 1988. In Enchantment of the Mind: Manmohan Desaiís Films, Connie Haham delves into the directorís works and analyses some of his cinematic signatures-speed, fun, adventure and delight, alongside a devotion to motherhood and a stance in favour of inter-religious harmony. His cinema is fondly remembered for its many catchy tunes and for characters brought to life by leading stars from Raj Kapoor to Amitabh Bachchan. Lending extra magic to this book is Manmohan Desaiís own account of a life dedicated to cinema- a medium he wielded artfully to depict both struggle and an affirmation of life. Printed Pages: 204.
