Dialogue of: Awaara: Raj Kapoor's Immortal Classic
About the Book
The Dialogue of Awaara, Raj Kapoor's Immortal Classic is a book for lovers of both cinema and language, featuring K.A. Abbas's original screenplay and dialogue, based on a story by K.A. Abbas and V.P. Sathe.
A seriously neglected area of Indian cinema is the subject of film dialogue. Though cinema is mainly a visual experience, it is through dialogue that we know the thoughts and emotions of the film's characters. Through K.A. Abbas's words and the poetic songs by Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri, Awaara's Judge Raghunath (Prithviraj Kapoor), Raj (Raj Kapoor) and Rita (Nargis) come alive. The film has a wonderful mix of one-liners, quips, punchlines and catchphrases while being modern, witty and full of nuance.
Awaara's dialogue and songs have been carefully transcribed from the film's original soundtrack by Suhail Akhtar and Vijay Jani and presented in Hindi, Urdu and Roman scripts. The English translation of the dialogue, an introduction and commentary are by Nasreen Munni Kabir. With a foreword by Randhir Kapoor, this unique book also features many stills from a most loved and enduring classic by Raj Kapoor, one of Indian cinema's master filmmakers.
