Hrishida’s memories live on at Shemaroo

Shemaroo keeps alive the man, his movies, and his memories on high quality VCDs and DVDs.

“Marte marte chhela guru ko jeena sikha diya. Dukh apne liye rakha, anand sabke liye.” The rather apt and touching dialogue from one of the characters from the film Anand. This more than anything, captures the philosophy of one of India’s most sensitive film makers the incomparable Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

Many would call him the messiah of middle class cinema. His characters, the ambience of his films, the situations, the sensitivities and the subtleties all evolved and revolved around the middle class milieu. Violence, evil, retribution never had any say in his stories and films. If ever there was anything tragic, it was tangential to the main story. Shemaroo is proud and privileged to be a part of keeping Hrishikesh Mukhkerjee’s memory alive, for each and every lover of good cinema, through the availability of high quality VCDs and DVDs of his films like Anand, Golmaal, Chupke Chupke, Anari and many more. All Shemaroo DVDs are mastered from the original film in our state of the art studio equipped with the best of technology available for the authoring of VCDs and DVDs.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s films have won several National and Filmfare Awards over the years. His films Anuradha (1960), Anupama (1966), Ashirwad (1968) and the unforgettable Anand (1970) have won National Awards. His film Anari (1959) has won Filmfare awards in four categories. Infact, both Raj Kapoor and L. B. Lachman, the producer, were impressed by Hrishida’s Musafir (1957) and encouraged him to take up the direction of this film. Other films of Hrishida that have won awards are Ashirwad, Namak Haram, Abhimaan, Golmaal and Khubsoorat.

Besides this he also written notable films stories and screenplays for Do Bigha Zamin, Guddi and Bawarchi. He also edited films like Madhumati, Ganga Jamuna and Chemmeen (Malayalam).
