Yeh Un Dino Ki Baat Hai is a classic book penned by Yassir Abbasi. He reminds us of the beauty of Indian cinema that won hearts because of the legacy and elegance of actors. #ThinkWithNiche
Yassir Abbasi, a skilled cinematographer, had his initial schooling in Gorakhpur and Lucknow. Abbasi had always kept himself on toes with filming documentaries and indie films since receiving his Master’s degree in Mass Communication from Jamia Millia Islamia in New Delhi in 2002, and his oeuvre has received multiple honors at a string of festivals. Yassir Abbasi’s heart-wrenching book Yeh Un Dino Ki Baat Hai is about a period when fame and success were mostly linked with compassion than flamboyance. Once cleverly designed utterances had been confined for the camera, while the generosity of spirit reigned in real life. When the Urdu language was an essential component of India’s multilingualism instead of an extraterrestrial speech. If you want to rejuvenate your senses, this book is pretty much like therapy but from Hindi cinema! Intense depictions, reflective surfaces, and ruminations of yesteryear performers, filmmakers, authors, etc featured in a string of no-longer-living broadcasting and publishings in beautiful Urdu language. It was during that period once celebrities ostensibly expanded their horizons to cinema columnists, however genuinely embarked on self-promotional stints uncovering nothing of their imaginations. Portrayals of most of the era’s greatest talents have been created in the imaginations of moviegoers who’ve been major personalities already, rather than by reporters on the cinema genre. Inside YEH UN DINO KI BAAT HAI, the materials page explains everything: ‘Ashok and Kishore Kumar by Iftekhar,’ ‘Meena Kumari by Nargis,’ etc.
Meena — Maut Mubarak Ho!, the title of Nargis’ work, is a striking remark on the cinema: how well a celebrity revered by the people may be tortured by solitude and coldness. She expresses her condolences on Meena Kumari’s untimely demise. “A renowned Bengali director had once said with a malicious snigger: ‘His craving for publicity just doesn’t subside,” writes Javed Siddiqi of Satyajit Ray, giving a unique glimpse further into genius communication styles — and trips and falls within that piece of writing. Urdu cinema mags that were popular with the masses between the 1930s and 1990s — a period of 7 long-lasting generations – were filled with emotional testimonies and delightful tales. Nevertheless, as Urdu became increasingly sidelined in succeeding decades, these periodicals were rarely preserved, resulting in its eventual erasure from mainstream consciousness. Every one of these publications had vanished from the open area and public remembrance till Yasir Abbasi hunted out personal collections, which was like locating a diamond in the rough. He has skillfully sewn forth a narrative with the diamond that has extended countless decades to the epoch we believed had passed us by.
If you enjoy art, poetry, and the ancient essence of Hindi cinema, Yeh Un Dino Ki Baat Hai should go on your weekend bucket list to brighten your mood and heart! Yeh Un Dino Ki Baat Hai, a classic book, will take you on a tear-jerking emotional roller coaster that is perfect for a winter getaway. From reminiscing about iconic artists to starlets who inherent Marylin Monroe-like style, who Yeh Un Dino Ki Baat Hai swept the screens with their purity, elegance, and beauty to soothe our minds.
