Hrishikesh Mukherjee - A Legend

Hrishikesh Mukherjee , one of India’s greatest directors passed away on Sunday. He had been battling ill health for the past couple of months and breathed his last at Mumbai’s Lilavathi hospital. It is a great loss for millions of fans like me .Hrishi da has given Indian cinema some of its best films. He never succumbed to making films with vulgarity or crime. His movies were simplistic and explored human relations.
Chupke Chupke and Golmal are the most watchable films ever made. Hrishi da though was not limited to comedies. His Abhimaan was a movie way ahead of his times and very relevant in today’s DINKS (double income no kids ) generation. The entire country wept for Anand and , Guddi became India’s darling. He also produced one of the most heart rending movies , Sadma .The list is unending but no movie has made more impact than his Raj Kapoor starrer Anari .His bittersweet romances have made millions laugh and cry . Hrishi da you will be sorely missed.
