Mumbai: Zee Bollywood is all set to evoke nostalgia with the celebration of 35 years of Mr. India on 25th May at 2 pm.
Directed by the legendary Shekhar Kapoor, Mr. India became the pioneer film in Bollywood’s fantasy genre and still remains untouchable when it comes to cinematic brilliance. With a cutting-edge cast including Anil Kapoor as Mr. India, Amrish Puri as Mogambo, Sridevi as Seema and Satish Kaushik as Calendar along with remarkable child artists, this film has had a substantial amount of influence on today’s pop culture and has managed to redefine the era of entertainment in the 80’s.
The film featured some class-apart visual effects, the classic fight between the good and evil displayed with fresh storytelling and multi-layered character portrayal. Classic hits like ‘Kaate nahin Kat Te’ and ‘Hawa Hawaii’ ruled every Bollywood themed party. The film also gave us the epic Mogambo – the most sinister villain of all times whose unforgettable catchphrase ‘Mogambo Khush hua’ is widely popular even today.
The iconic blockbuster follows the life of Arun, a poor but big-hearted man who dedicates his life raising orphan children. After discovering his scientist father’s invisibility device which makes the wearer invisible unless red light is focused on the wearer, he rises to the occasion and fights to save his children and all of India from the clutches of a megalomaniac – Mogambo.
Watch ‘Mr. India’ on Zee Bollywood on 25th May, at 2 pm.
