    Never knew he was interested in dance

      The best part of the interviews to me was Abrar Alvi’s commentary. It showed that a lot of thought went into his writing – the way he explained that they made Guru Dutt’s character speak Bombay lingo and the one liners. The scenes were also very well chosen.

      Cinematographer VK Murthy talking about the famous shot from Kaagaz Ke Phool was also great.


      To everyone else – don’t miss these interviews.
