Sony MAX2 to showcase the story behind Parinda
Sony MAX2 will take Bollywood fans on a trip down memory lane to mark 30 years of the super hit film – Parinda through a special showcase with Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra on November 03, 2019.
Three decades post its release, Parinda is still considered one of the most iconic movie of Indian Cinema and to celebrate this memorable journey, Sony MAX2 along with director Vidhu Vinod Chopra will enable fans to witness two stories simultaneously. One in the film and one behind it, straight from the man himself as he narrates some of his favorite moments, unheard stories and interesting trivia from his directorial masterpiece.
The movie that first hit the screens on November 03, 1989 features Madhuri Dixit Nene, Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff in the lead who were ably supported by Nana Patekar, Kader Khan and Suresh Oberoi, Late Tom Alter amongst others. Parinda is a story of two brothers Kishen (Jackie Shroff) and Karan (Anil Kapoor) who are caught on the different sides of a gang war.
Speaking about the film and what went behind creating it, Vidhu Vinod Chopra says, ““When a Director works on any film, it is the entire technical team that directs the film along with him. Contribution from the entire team matters the most and I was blessed to have a fantastic squad working behind the scenes to make Parinda a grand success. I would like to thank the entire crew for this.”
“The movie was produced with a minuscule budget and our cast too cooperated well keeping the budget in mind. The actors in the movie had to use their own cars, for example, the black Fiat that you see in the movie was Jackie’s personal car, similarly a lot of shirts Anil Kapoor is wearing in the movie were not designed for him due to lack of budget, instead, they are Jackie’s.”
With a gripping storyline and ahead-of-its time direction, Parinda went on to win several accolades that year including the Filmfare Award for Best Director for Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
