Synopsis

A film celebrating the spectacular world of Hindi cinema, featuring archival clips and interviews with Indian superstars including Anil Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai. It is a tribute to a genre that established Mumbai as an international filmmaking hub and has significantly shaped the global perception of one of the largest and youngest democracies in the world.

About the Directors

To disseminate elements of his directing, writing and producing, Mehra established Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra Pictures (ROMP), which aims to foster a new wave of Indian cinema. He wrote, produced and directed the film “Rang De Basanti” (Colour of Sacrifice) in 2006, which has won four National Awards and was India’s official entry to the Oscars® during 2006–2007.

As a multi-Emmy Award® nominated director, Zimbalist’s films have been broadcast on diverse networks and theatrically distributed worldwide. The film “The Two Escobars”, co-directed with brother Michael, premiered at Cannes, Tribeca, IDFA, and LA while being nominated for numerous awards.
