Neo-wave to new-age cinema

Followers and makers of parallel cinema have always been few in number but realistic, bold and different, like their films, says Ranjan Das Gupta

WHEN M. S. Sathyuís Garam Hawa was released in 1973, it created history, as it was the start of the neo-wave cult in Hindi films. With a taut screenplay by Ismail Chugtai and a majestic performance by Balraj Sahni, the film set trends, unknown in the history of Bollywood. Shyam Benegalís Ankur, Nishant and Manthan followed, establishing the neo-wave cinema strongly in the tinsel town, where larger-than-life entertainment and box office-oriented movies ruled.
