Mr India

1987 179’ col/scope Hindi d Shekhar Kapur pc Narsimha Ents st/dial/lyr Javed Akhtar c Baba Azmi m Laxmikant-Pyarelal lp Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Amrish Puri, Sharat Saxena, Bob Christo, Ashok Kumar, Satish Kaushik

Shekhar Kapur’s biggest movie tells an ‘invisible man’ story. One of Indian film’s most exotic villains yet, the blond dictator Mogambo (Puri, resembling Marty Feldman in Nazi uniform) is defeated by a common-man hero (Kapoor) who can render himself invisible. The film moves through a series of sketches: breakdancing kids, heroine Sridevi playing a journalist while performing her famous Hawa Hawaii routine (quoted in Salaam Bombay, 1988) and her popular Chaplin imitation.
