Every now and then I stumble upon magical movies like this recently premiered Bollywood love (?) story. The film's director, Anurag Basu, is a survivor.
He was diagnosed with acute leukemia in 2004 when he was halfway through his film Tumsa Nahin Dekha. He was immediately hospitalised; his doctors announced that he had two months to live. Basu even directed parts of the film from his hospital bed as shooting could not be canceled. Basu underwent chemotherapy and was on medication for three years. He received American cancer society's award for cancer survivor of the year in 2005.
Wonder if that got something to do with the film's emotional and hopefull tone. Maybe I should look into his previous works. Starring roles played by Haradhan Bannerjee, Sumona Chakravarti and Priyanka Chopra .Here's the trailer.
