Veteran filmmaker Kundan Shah passes away

He was 69 years old.

Kundan Shah, a veteran writer, and filmmaker noted for his iconic movie Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro and Telly series Nukkad passed away and filmmaker Kabir Khan remembered the filmmaker was his warmth. #KabhiHaanKabhiNaa is one of my fav films ever. In fact, the last Ram Leela scene has so many layers to it.

Sadly, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron was released when such movies were branded "arty" and had only morning shows at their disposal in theatres. That way it was much ahead of its time.

Kundan Shah directed films like "Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro", "Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa", "Kya Kehna", and "Dil Hai Tumhara". In his message Mr Modi said, "Anguished by the passing away of Shri Kundan Shah".

Referring to the plight of farmers, Gandhi stated that the maximum suicides amongst them are taking place in the BJP-ruled states. He said that the fall in GDP by 2 percent speaks in volumes about mismanagement of the economic reforms.

Riteish tweeted, "Rip Kundan Shah...." Film Stars have used words like "legendary, ' 'solid story teller, ' 'inspiring" and 'master film maker, ' to describe Kundan Shah, who would have been 70 later this month. He is gone. He lives on.

The 1980s have been derided for being the worst phase for Hindi cinema but it was also a period where a new breed of filmmakers from across the spectrum came into their own. It was only the positive word-of-mouth that ensured enough footfalls to make Shah's black comedy a sleeper hit and earned him the coveted national award for the best director.

Kundan Shah studied at the Film and Television Insitute of India, Pune. Interestingly, the film starring Satish Shah, Naseeruddin Shah, late Om Puri and Satish Kaushik was his directorial debut.
