This year has been all kinds of unexpected, and another surprising thing to have happened this year is the restoration of this film that is very close to my heart.
The fine people @potatoeaterscollective
have made ‘Hun Hunshi Hunshilal’ available to watch on YouTube for 6 days starting today.
They have managed to bring this labour of love alive for a brand new audience. I still fondly remember working with dear friends Renuka Shahane, Manoj Joshi, Sanjiv Shah and maverick music director Rajat Dholakia in a very different time. Unfortunately, the film did not get a lot of attention back in 1992, perhaps because it was ahead of it’s time. But I hope that you all can give this very relevant film a chance now.
The film is in Gujarati, but it is available with English subtitles.
