Sony Max 2 to telecast the story behind Parinda with Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra

Sony Pictures Network India‘s (SPN) Sony Max 2 through a special showcase with Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra on November 03, 2019 will take Bollywood fans on a trip down memory lane to mark 30 years of the super hit film – Parinda.

Three decades post its release, Parinda is still considered one of the most iconic movies 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.

The movie is also fondly remembered as one of Nana Patekar’s finest performances –one that won him a National Award for the Best Actor in a Supporting Role. The music for the film composed by the legendary R.D. Burman is still fresh in people’s minds with the Asha Bhosale and Suresh Wadkar duet – Tumse Milke Aisa Laga still considered as one of the most romantic Bollywood songs ever. 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.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Director – Parinda said “Parinda completes 30 years in 2019 but when you look back, one can’t imagine how this film was shot back then. Now-a-days making a movie has become easier thanks to technology but to think about making the movie of this scale 30 years back with such action sequences and some very well shot scenes within a miniscule budget was a challenge. The entire movie was made with a miniscule budget which was not great even 30 years back.”
