Two beautiful tales told twice. Rediscovering Aandhi and hu tu tu.
Aandhichronicles the lives of Aarti and JK who part ways a few years after their marriage, still in love but divided on principles. JK, the dreamy poet, is a complete contrast to the fiery, ambitious Aarti who goes on to become an influential political leader. They meet years later in a chance encounter full of poignant regret.
In hu tu tu, Panna Barve, the daughter of Malti Barve - a power-hungry politician and Aditya Patel, the son of a rich businessman, grow up seeing their parents forge ahead fulfilling their ambitions, ruthlessly squashing everything that comes in the way of their success. Unable to come to terms with the single-minded cruelty of their parents, the young couple is forced to take the ultimate step.
Heads and tales - Aandhi and hu tu tu brings together, in an engaging narrative form, two of Gulzars best-known films. Brilliantly translated by filmmaker Meghna Gulzar, this volume will appeal to the fans of these classic movies, as well as to all lovers of strong, well-told stories.
Adapted screenplays of two iconic films.
Translated by the acclaimed filmmaker, Meghna Gulzar.
Must-have for every film buff.
