Dev Anand: An actor in tune with life, songs and dialogue

Dev Anand: An actor in tune with life, songs and dialogue

  It is arguable that Hindi cinema has lost, with Dev Anand's death, its last remaining icon of a certain charming foppery. The other one, Shammi Kapoor, of jumping-jack yodelling, came much later. The original one was Dev. The jokes might abound now (one is about Bengalis expressing amazement that he was not Debanando), but the sheer outpouring of wistfulness about the bygone era Dev represented, as well genuine best wishes for the hereafter, makes it clear that Dev Anand held a special place in the hearts of several generations of Hindi cinema lovers.Dev Anand Is Something Of A Bollywood Institution. His Romantic Persona, Dialogue Delivery, Song Picturizations And Mannerisms Are Legend, And For Generations Of Filmgoers He Has Remained Hindi Cinema... Read more

  It is considered one of the most brilliant portrayals in Hindi cinema by any actress but not many know that Meena Kumari nearly missed playing the lead role of 'Chhoti Bahu' in Guru Dutt's " Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam". Dutt wanted to make a commercial film and decided to adapt Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam and when it came to casting, he thought only Kumari could do justice to Chhoti Bahu.  "And do you know she nearly missed it? Guru Dutt sent word that he would be interested in hiring my heroine. Was she available?  The answer from Rembrandt (the house she shared with husband Kamal Amrohi) was no, she had her hands full with pending commitments," writes veteran journalist Vinod Mehta in "Meena...

From the Archive of IFI : We bring you an exclusive interview of Legendary writers Salim-Javed (1977)

    SALIM-JAVED Recently, there have been certain allegations against you in some fan mags. How do you react to them? For example, Mr. Manmohan Desai. We pity and feel sorry for them. It seems that these people had no good grooming or had no chance to learn a bit of culture. Otherwise, they would not have used such uncultured and uncouth language for one of their colleagues of the industry. So, we smile it off. Where our profession is concerned, we never wanted to work with Manmohan Desai. It was he who called us to write dialogue for ROTI as he wanted to remove Akhtar-ul-Iman from the scene. To change a reputed writer like Akhtar-ul-Iman for Salim-Javed, wasn’t this an un­professional act? And in the... Read more

From the Archive of IFI : We Bring You An Exclusive Interview Of Writer  RAJINDER SINGH BEDI (1977)

  RAJINDER SINGH BEDI Dialogue has always been an important aspect of films. What principles do you apply while penning dialogue for films? – Dialogues do constitute an important point of filmmaking. And in order to shape them better, they should be simpler because simple dialogues are more effective, inter­est­­ing and more appealing. Simple language in dialogue appeals to your heart. For how many films have you written dialogues? – Starting from D.D. Kashyap’s BARI BAHEN in 1948, I have been a dialogue-writer in about 80 films. Among them, I count DAAG, MIRZA GHALIB, MADHUMATI, DEVDAS as my remarkable films. For Hrishi­kesh Mukherji’s films, I have done this job in about 10 films, till his ABHIMAAN. So, you started your career as a dialogue-writer? – Yes, but... Read more

  Mohan segal Mohanji, We have heard that this is your silver jubilee year? – Actually, 1977 marks the silver jubilee of my career as a director. I have not completed 25 years in film direction, but I have just stepped into my 25th year this year (1977) like a film entering its silver jubilee week. I started with AULAD, produced by Kul­dip Sehgal. This film mounted the sets in March 1953 and was relea­sed in 1954.
