Mr.India Turns 32! Here Are 5 REASONS To Prove Why This Sridevi-Anil Kapoor Starrer Is A Timeless Classic
Mr. India till date remains the best superhero film that India has made (No Offence to SRK’s Ra One, Hrithik Roshan’s Krrish). This Shekhar Kapur directed film released in the year 1987 and starred Anil Kapoor, Sridevi and Amrish Puri in lead roles. 32 years later, Mr India still remains timeless and we bring you some of the best moments from the film:

1.  When We Discover About The Watch That Makes You InvisibleThe Watch

The reason that this moment is so iconic is because this was one of the first times that such a sci-fi gadget was introduced in a Bollywood film. The fact that it makes you invisible blew our minds at that time and it would always make us think that what would we do if we found a watch like that. The introduction to the gadget was smart and subtle and it was also established that it doesn’t have any effect on the colour red. 

2.  Every Time Amrish Puri AKA Mogambo Was On-Screen

Amrish Puri who was known to portray antagonist roles in the 90’s and 2000’s gave one of his career best performances as Mogambo. His catch-phrase ‘Mogambo Khush Hua’ is till date one of the most iconic catchphrases amongst Indian baddies. All his scenes were very well-shot and made him look like the ultimate bad guy at the time. His plan to destroy lives of innocent civilians was also very well explored and it made you believe that he was a legitimate threat.

3.  Amazing Camaraderie Between Anil Kapoor, Sridevi and The Orphan Kids

Mr.India explored a beautiful angle in the film where Anil Kapoor is established as the guy who lives with orphans and take cares of them. Later, Sridevi also joins him and they all share a beautiful character arc where Sridevi goes from hating the kids to actually loving them towards the end. This was a very fresh idea back then and it also established the great motive Arun Verma (Anil Kapoor) had throughout the film establishing him as the ultimate good guy.

4.  Sridevi’s Charlie Chaplin act

While we are talking about timeless things how can we not mention Sridevi. She portrayed the character of Seema Soni and has iconic moments throughout the film. Moments like when she comes to stay at Arun Verma’s house for the very first time and discovers about the orphans, or when she turns into Charlie Chaplin to spy on Mr.India and explore his cruel plan.

Not only her comic timing but her chemistry with Anil Kapoor was also remarkable in this film. Her performance in the songs ‘Kate Nahi Katt Te’ and ‘Hawa Hawai’ are still talked about. Infact Hawa Hawai has also been remade countless times since then.

5.  The Grand Finale

A Secret Launch Pad, Missiles, Bombs – The grand finale of Mr.India was truly epic and fun. We find out about Mogambo’s plan to kill innocent civilians of India and then we have one of the most thrilling climaxes where there is a final face-off between Arun Verma and Mogambo and how he manages to defuse those missiles. Not only that, but Arun also manages to destroy those launch pads and save lives of countless innocent civilians

With all these remarkable feats, Mr.India won hearts of millions of Indian moviegoers and will continue staying an eternal classic for years to come
