For all those who live and breathe Bollywood, this month is indeed a special month. The reason being, it was the month of May when Bollywood saw an evolution and revolution of sorts in the form of Mr. India, which was Bollywood’s first sci-fi film. While the film had released in 1987, this month and year sees the film completing a wholesome 30 years!
Even though Mr. India proved to be a goldmine at the Box-Office, the film, later on, went on to become a cult film and has been entertaining audiences’ years after its release. Even today, the film still holds its novelty and entertainment values intact!
Mr. India, a film, which was far ahead of its time, was made with a strong patriotic message. The film managed to strike a balance between novelty, technology and all the ingredients of a typically entertaining potboiler.
Recalling the Mr. India experience, Boney Kapoor said, “I’m so happy and proud that people remember Mr. India fondly even today. I remember being one of the youngest members behind the camera. And, today, with Mom, I’m the eldest member. With Mr. India, we were never dependent on the stardom of the actors, just on the magic of the film. All our fight sequences, stunts and the destruction, was real-time direction and special effects and not done during post-production.”
Mom, which happens to be Sridevi’s 300th film and this year 2017, also marks her 50th year in films. Directed by Ravi Udyawar, Mom that features music composed by the maestro A. R. Rahman will be released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi, on July 7 this year.
