Finally, after years of abstinence from what he was born to do, Ramesh Sippy is all set to return to direction. For the fans of Sippy’s timeless cinema-and we refer not just to the pioneering Sholay but also to the equally powerful Shakti, Saagar, Seeta Aur Geeta and Andaz – the return of the maestro to movie-making is a significant sign of the changing time in Bollywood where the giants had lost the will and the way to create landmarks. Says Sippy, “I am aware I haven’t directed a film for many years. But, I saw no reason to jump into it just because of a time lapse. I’ve
made films out of very powerful scripts in the past. Then I directed Zamana Deewana in 1995, which was not that strong in content. Then I decided if I found no script worth shooting, I won’t direct another film if I didn’t get the right script.” Fortunately, for Ramesh Sippy and for us his fans, the right script has showed up. And Sippy Saab is all set to explore a genre that he has never attempted before.
