    Description

    Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is considered one of the best film-related books to have come out in recent times. It is an encapsulation of all that went into the making of the movie, including the script, cast, pre-production, and the final release.

    Summary Of The Book

    A modestly-made film that does not cease to astound audiences, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is undoubtedly one of India’s finest dark comedies. However, the making of this smooth satire was anything but smooth. In this book that goes by the same name, Jai Arjun Singh brings to light the entertaining story behind the making of Hindi cinema’s favourite cult movie. 

    The success of the film can be attributed more to the enthusiasm and sheer dedication of those who wanted to make it than the resources and luck they had to make it. This very fact is what makes it a work of brilliance despite its many flaws. The author’s take on this and many other aspects of the movie make the book an interesting read.

    The book acquaints the readers with lesser known facts surrounding the movie like the difficulty with which some scenes were shot, the omission of a talking gorilla from the cast, and the fact that even though Naseeruddin Shah was the only popular face in the movie, he admits to not being able to play a certain part in the movie adequately.

    Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is divided into four different parts. In the beginning, it traces the events that led to the making of the film in the first place and the ideas that were shot and later rejected. The following parts deal with the actual shooting of the movie, rifts between the director and the main actors, and the final release and the largely unexpected appreciation of the film. 

    Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro is a must read for everyone who has watched the movie and pondered about its intricacies time and again. The author has done full justice in his research and analysis of the movie. The charming tone of the book ensures that the reader remains thoroughly engaged and falls in love with the movie all over again.

    Good book

    Unlike expensive coffee table books, this behind-the-scenes look at a cult classic of Hindi cinema is very affordable and accessible. Jai Arjun Singh has put in a lot of passion and research to bring us nuggets behind the humor and satire of JBDY. A film that ranks on everyone's fav lists, this book will make you wish someone did a series on Andaz Apna Apna, Sholay, Angoor, Khosla ka Ghosla, Munnabhai and other such unexpected jewels.

    Must read for every JBDY fan!!

    Un-put-downable!

    Since a lot of the edited footage of JBDY was lost due in archives, this book provides a good "behind the scenes" look at the film that still features on everyone's "top movies" list!

    There is a lot of trivia about the movie and a lot of background on what went into its making. The writing makes the reader relive and go through the creative process that led to the making of this classic! I almost felt like I was present as events prior to the film unfolded!

    Nice read

    For a nation obsessed with movies, itâ??s a little surprising that there are very few good books available on Bollywood or Hindi movies. Probably we are just happy watching the movies than reading about them. Not surprisingly Jai Arjun Singhâ??s book is a welcome and well deserved addition to this genre.
    The book starts with with Kundan Shah early days in FTI- Pune, his initial struggle to bring this movie to the production stage and moves on by providing an easy flowing and light hearted acc...

    good but coudl have been better

    the book is good but could have been better, by providing more info about the actual shooting ; like how was the team to kundan as he was new comer, how the dia were written etc. adding making images could have made the book more interesting.

    film making book needs interesting images. usual poster images does not help.

    but yet the book is very good insight as to how the director floated with his vision with all the hiccups.

    good !

    Loved the movie? Get this then

    The movie's a legend. If you still haven't seen it, you've missed out on life. But if you've seen the movie, relive that initial feeling of wonder with the dirt on what it took to bring it to the screen / VCR (or if you're a young'un, a VCD)... And then despair about the Disco Killer and his lost footage...

    Jaane nahi do yaaron!

    For all cinema lovers like me, if you have grown up on a staple diet of parallel hindi cinema, this one cannot be missed. Simple and subtle narrative on one of the best movies ever. All the weaknesses and struggles that lead to the creation of the masterpiece.
    Totally not to be missed!

    Caution: You'd lose track of time while reading this!!

    Okay, when I picked this one up, it was primarily because I am a big fan of "Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro". I think it is the sincerest film made in the history of Indian cinema. This book does thorough justice to it. From it's inception to the writing of the script to casting the actors to the madness on shoot; the book touches upon everything any hardcore JBDY fan would love to read about. You'd feel as if the whole process of the making of the film is taking place in front of your eyes! Plus, the pe...

    Not just another "making of" book

    This book surprised me by going beyond the obvious tales one may expect during the making of any film - which, by themselves, are bizarre enough to make for a good read. It tries to place / analyse the film, its making and the makers in the context of the general state of affairs around that time. The small extra insights - the comparison with Inquilab & an attempt to explain the different thought processes of Raj Kapoor and Kundan Shah and many others of the kind - that takes this above any ...
