… Monarch of Musical Marvels

at Bhaidas Hall, Vile Parle West from 8.00 pm

The Audio Visual presentation will take us through the evergreen romantic musicals made by the legendary filmmaker Padmashri Sashadhar Mukerji in a meritorious career spanning over 30 years.

S Mukerji was the Monarch of Musical Marvels with an impressive track record of successful films ranging from:
Bandhan, Jhoola, Naya Sansar, Kismat (as the Producer for Bombay Talkies)

to his own Filmistan‘s feisty entertainers:
Chal Chal Re Naujawan, Eight Days, Safar, Shikari, Do Bhai, Saajan, Shehnai, Sindoor, Shaheed, Nadiya ke Paar, Samadhi, Sargam, Anandmath, Shabistan, Shreematiji, Shart, Anarkali, Jagriti, Nagin, Nastik, Aab-e-Hayaat, Munimji, Durgesh Nandini, Heer, Hum Sab Chor Hain, Champakali, Paying Guest, Tumsa Nahin Dekha

Dil Deke Dekho, Hum Hindustani, Love in Simla, Ek Musafir Ek Hasina, Aao Pyar Karen, Tu Hi Meri Zindagi

to the S Mukerji Film Syndicates‘ musical socials:
Leader and Sambandh

The Midas Mukerji started his f~ilmi sojourn with the Bombay Talkies blockbuster Bandhan (1940).

And, three decades later, after a spate of successful musicals, his last movie enterprise turned out to be Sambandh (1969).

Truly, there is ‘Some Bandhan’ in the Sashadhar Style of Movie Making!

A realistic way to hang the boots! For this Maverick Mukerji had a knack of maintaining an endearing ‘bandhan‘ with his audience and everlasting ‘sambandh‘ with his film fraternity!

So much so for the Midas Mukerji … Monarch of Musical Marvels

The event will be graced by the Mukerji family and their filial bonding.
