Hrishikesh Mukherjee's best films
August 28, 2006
Hrishikesh Mukherjee was a brilliant director. The films he directed could make you cry, they could make you laugh, and they could make you laugh even while you cried.
Mukherjee was the master of middle-of-the-road cinema from the 1950s till the 1980s. He directed 42 films in a rich directorial career that spanned as many years. Mukherjee's cinema bespoke a middle-class, genteel sensibility, lined with deep intelligence and observation.
