In this pictorial tribute, Ritu Nanda uses Raj Kapoor's own words, culled from interviews, journals and anecdotes, to give us a unique autobiography. As revealing as it is engaging, this is a fascinating record for posterity of the life and work of the man widely regarded as the last true movie mogul of Indian cinema.

Raj Kapoor, the creator of such classics of the silver screen as Aware, Aag and Sangam, is many things to many people-producer, director, actor, editor, musician, storyteller, a man of many moods, and an acknowledged patriarch of India's film industry. He is also known to the world as an extraordinary and controversial showman, a lover, an idealist, a reformer.

There will be endless debates about his exact contribution to the art of film-making, but few can deny that he was the greatest entertainer of Hindi cinema. He worked within the cinematic tradition he inherited, modified it, added anew elements to its, and thus produced a distinctive, seductively romantic and immensely popular oeuvre.
