Tumhein Dekhkar Yaad Aa Gayee Woh Baatein

Jinhen Bhul Jaane Ki Maine Kasam Khayee Thi!

Wanna recognize whose couplet is this? Well, few know that the eminent filmmaker Yash Chopra, acknowledged as the 'Master of love stories' was also a poet but he kept his poetries to himself. Today he would have turned 81 years had been alive. While Mrs. Pamela Chopra is paying her departed husband a grand tribute by celebrating it through a fashion show that will feature all the leading actress from Bollywood, we at Glamsham.Com remember the czar of romance by recollecting an episode from his life when in the 80s the doyen of Indian cinema was passing through a rough patch and it seemed his magic at the box-office had faded. How he made a comeback is interesting tale.

In the 80s and early 90s after the disastrous FAASLE, VIJAY, and LAMHE, which was most close to his heart, Yashji was a broken man. In an interview he had admitted, ''For six months I could not come out from the trauma of the failure of LAMHE. In fact, its failure dejected me so much that I decided to change my style and resume to action thrillers. But one day I met the legendary actor and filmmaker Raj Kapoor, who advised me that time keeps changing but with changing time one does not change his signature, his encouraging words came as a solace to me and from that day I decided to stick to making my style of movies making a comeback with DARR.''

And that's what he has been doing, making his kind of movies which is amalgamation of lilting music, scenic backdrops and an intense plot which explores the gamut of human interactions giving no freedom for cheap sex and pointless violence. The kind of movie one can enjoy sitting amidst the entire family without being ashamed off!
