Mr. India compie 25 anni

Anil Kapoor e Sridevi - Mr. India
Ieri Mr. India, secondo film diretto dal noto regista Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth), ha celebrato i 25 anni dalla sua distribuzione. La pellicola, di genere fantascientifico, conquistò la seconda posizione nella lista dei maggiori incassi del 1987, ed è considerata a tutti gli effetti un classico del cinema hindi. Interpretato da Anil Kapoor e Sridevi e prodotto da Boney Kapoor, Mr. India è l'ultimo film sceneggiato dal mitico duo Salim-Javed. Il ruolo negativo fu ricoperto da Amrish Puri, ed il suo Mogambo è uno dei più famosi villain di Bollywood. Vi segnaliamo l'intervista concessa da Shekhar Kapur a Rediff pubblicata ieri. Uno stralcio: 'I think there was something very special that we discovered when we made the film. It was fearlessness. I shot the film completely instinctively. Boney Kapoor was a fearless producer. He was one of the great independent producers of his time. During its time Mr. India was a very expensive film. Anil Kapoor was fearless and so was I. The film was a product of fearlessness from all the people that were associated with it. It was not that we were never afraid, but we were on a roll. We all supported each other. When you see the film today, you can sense that adventure and the joy of filmmaking'.
