Chatty and informal, this book opens a window to the life and work of some of the legendary figures in Indian cinema. From golden era greats like Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar to leading ladies like Waheeda Rehman, Nargis, Rekha, and Shabana Azmi to megastars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Mammootty, to present-day movie moguls like Yash Chopra, Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Gulzar, Nana Patekar, and Subhash Ghai—the range of this collection is breathtaking. These interviews and articles by Anil Saari capture a crucial twenty-year period of change in cinema in India, from the 1970s to the mid-1990s. Interestingly, the last part of this volume includes three pieces that provide a retrospective of the 1980s, summing up the highs and lows of that eventful decade in Indian cinema. Printed Pages: 240.
