Description

Not everyone attains celebrity status in the quicksand of film-making business. Sadly, many remain unsung.

A cinematic masterpiece, Bimal Roy s Madhumati is an enduring classic, and one of the most enduring legacies bequeathed to the Indian film industry by the black-and-white era. Starring the legendary thespians Dilip Kimar, Vyjayanthimala and Pran, Madhumati combined a heartbreaking saga of love with a convincing, spine-chilling ghost story to create an award-winning hit movie which continues to inspire Bollywood even today.

In Bimal Roy s Madhumati: Untold Stories from Behind the Scenes, his daughter, Rinki Roy Bhattacharya, explores how Roy,s biggest commercial success was made; revisiting shoot locations, meeting people who were involved in its making, building on reminiscences, media reports, interviews and, most importantly, the memories of the three stars Dilip Kumar, Vyjayantimala and Pran.

With a tribute by Amitabh Bachchan, a foreword by Vyjayanthimala and exclusive on-location photographs, this book is a must-have, both for fans of this iconic film and for those interested in the history of the Indian film industry.



COMMENT:

‘I would like to believe what came to be addressed as “the middle path” cinema, years later, had its roots in the thinking and films of Bimal Roy.’
== Amitabh Bachchan
