Thanks for this great video: RK "embracing the dark side"!!


I'd never thought of RK's films like that, but I loved that assessment, I thought Deepa Mehta got it bang on....


Great interview. Very insightful and nice to see that she can be positive about Indian commercial cinema, even if her assertion that the term Bollywood is only 15 years old was out by a decade or two.


:-) I know, I'm always hesitant with Deepa Mehta. She gave some pretty negative interviews during IIFA, yet she's always the Go-To person whenever anyone wants to talk about Indian cinema. I watched this waiting for the other shoe to drop, but to her credit, she focussed on Raj Kapoor and why he was, truly, important.


I am big fan of Raj Kapoor. He was really a show man and given finest movies in Bollywood.

ppc management

Either Shree 420, Awara, Chaliya, Sangam, or any other movie, I dont know how he could show such deep emotions through his films. Raj Kapoor was a great Actor.
