Anand(1970)- (Hindi)
Director: Hrishkesh Mukherjee
Producer: N.C. Sippy
Starring: Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan
Music by Salil Choudhary

Reasons to watch this movie before you die,
·         You can live life two ways either keep cribbing and complaining about what you don’t have and how unlucky you are or utilize whatever you have and enjoy the life to the fullest. Anand is a story of such a man whose days are numbered due to deadly cancer. But rather than crying over it he chose to fully utilized and enjoy every moment of his remaining life. He spread joy, pure Anand till his last breath.
·         This is Late Rajesh Khanna’s best acting performance. Rajesh Khanna was first Superstar of Bollywood. When he did this movie he was at pinnacle of his career.
·         It was also one of the best performances of Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh was next superstar after Rajesh Khanna, who ruled Hindi film industry for decades. But when he did this movie he was just a starting off his career. He played supporting kind of second lead role in the movie but made his presence felt with his performance.
·         Hrishikesh Mukherjee is one of my favorite directors. I would say each and every movie of Hrishikesh Mukharjee is a must watch. He was legend in Bollywood whose contribution to the industry was immense.
·         And lastly but not least at all, watch this movie for the soulful and timeless music by Salil Chaudhary. Be it,
‘Zindagi kaisi hai paheli’, ‘Maine tere liye hi’ or ‘Kahin door jab din dhal jayen’
Melody of the songs, the lyrics and rendition of the song will touch your heart.
