Anand Saigal (Rajesh Khanna), an unusual, interesting man, who lived what remained of his life fully, completely. Treating every living moment as magic, every minute a miracle, every hour a gift. A man whose life inspired his friend Dr. Bhaskar Banerjee (Amitabh Bachchan) to write a book that wins the coveted Saraswati Award. Anand Saigal is a terminally ill, cancer patient, who with his non stop chatter, boisterous humour, and never say die attitude touches the lives of everyone he comes in contact with. His metaphorical search for his long lost friend Murarilal is the high point of the film. One of India’s finest directors, Hrishikesh Mukherjee teams up with Gulzar as lyricist and dialogue writer to give us some of the best lines in Hindi Cinema and some hauntingly lovely songs. It plays on your heartstrings, but in the end you will agree, “Anand lives on”.
