The 1951 Raj Kapoor classic ‘Awara’ has been added to Time’s All Time 100 Greates Films list.
Time critic Richard Corliss describes Raj Kapoor as ���the great star-auteur of India`s postcolonial golden age of movies – Cary Grant and Cecil B. DeMille in one handsome package.”
Time calls ‘Awara’ as “a glistening showcase for Kapoor and the great India siren Nargis (his lover onscreen and off).”
“And of course it`s a musical, whose main song, `Awaara Hoon,` by the famed Shanker-Jaikishan duo, soared to the top of the pop charts in India, the USSR and China.”
The original All-Time 100 list published in 2005 included Satyajit Ray`s ��The Apu Trilogy�۪, Mani Ratnam`s ��Nayakan�۪ and Guru Dutt`s ��Pyaasa�۪.
Last week, Time magazine ranked Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s 2002 film ��Devdas�۪ eighth among the ten greatest movies of the millennium (thus far).
