Gulzar's Angoor: Insights into The Film
Angoor (1982) is among the best-loved comedies in Hindi cinema. It is also a perfect example of Gulzar's genius as a writer, complete with his impish wordplay. Through interviews with some of the main actors in Angoor (Deepti Naval and Moushumi Chatterjee) and its earlier version - both adaptations of Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors - this book traces the evolution of a comic tale that continues to amuse audiences of all ages. It deftly peels the layers to explore how song, dialogue, silences and wordplay add to the actors' arsenal in creating humour that can range from rib-tickling mirth to guffaws. Sathya Saran's book reveals what lies behind the evergreen appeal of Angoor, with memories and anecdotes shared by Gulzar himself.
