Hrishikesh Mukherjee's Anand is undoubtedly one of the Top 3 Movies directed by the master film maker and widely acclaimed by all. While watching the movie you can feel the pain felt by Rajesh Khanna as he has very few days left to live on. A very calm and soothing film, which though is on a very serious topic but still keeps the light mood going through out.

The entire starcast is deep into their characters which makes the film to be cherished forever. A special mention to the meaningful, melodious and memorable songs by Salil Chaudury. Interestingly, the film was to be made with another cast alltogether and the character of Anand was inspired by Raj Kapoor, who use to call Hrishikesh Mukherjee as "Babu Moshaye". The film is also dedicated to Raj Kapoor and the people of Bombay.
The another influence to the subject was a film by another master of the art, Akira Kurosawa. And the theme of "Anand" is very close to the Japanense Movie, Akira Kurosawa's "Ikiru". But in my opinion this influence is more as an admiration of one master for another. As in this case both are the true masters of their art. In simple words, Anand is a pure delight for the heart & soul and a must have in your home library for all in the family.
