The showman is no more but the show still goes on ...
The charm of the original 'show man' of Hindi Cinema, Raj Kapoor, has captivated our minds since decades and still continues to play his magic on us. Whether it is the characterization of the protagonists in his films (SHREE 420 or AWARA) or movies with strong social messages (BOOT POLISH and JIS DESH MEIN GANGA BEHTI HAI), or the music in his films, Raj Kapoor excelled as a film maker in all departments! He had an unparallel film making style and gifted the Bollywood industry with ideas which were much ahead of its time. Today, most of his films enjoy a cult status.
Raj Kapoor, entered the film industry at an early age of twelve and by twenty-four he started his own studio and Banner - RK Films. The actor turned producer and director, made 21 films under his banner, each with a different message and treatment and probably this is the reason why these films could travel several decades and still are recognized among the crowd of thousand other films releasing today.
Shemaroo Entertainment salutes the genius film maker on his 22nd death anniversary on 2 June, 2010. On the occasion, Shemaroo launches 21 RK Films Collector's Pack, in an exotic pack that includes all the films released by RK Banner ranging from good old Black & White days to the magical colourful days....
