THE WORLD OF HRISHIKESH MUKHERJEE

THE FILMMAKER EVERYONE LOVES

Jai Arjun Singh

Hrishikesh Mukherjee is well known for popular films such as Anand, Chupke Chupke and Gol Maal, but his best works are provocative, and reflect the complexities of human relationships. They often combine light plots with serious ideas, exploring journeys towards responsibility in a flawed world, performance (naatak-baazi) as a revelation of character, and issues of gender in a conservative society. Jai Arjun Singh looks closely at Mukherjee’s oeuvre, combining a fan’s passion with a critic’s rigour.
