professor toofaanii publishers, Lansing, MI USA is happy to announce their 52nd book
Hindi Talkie Filmography (1961-70)
Har Mandir Singh 'Hamraaz'
Prof Surjit Singh
This book is a sister project, part of the much larger project undertaken by the two of us, with the help of many volunteers. Full details of the project can be seen on the main website
The project is an outgrowth of the massive Hindi Film Geet Kosh (1980-) series of books compiled by the first author. The website is planned to contain all the data in the Geet Kosh, suitably expanded and revised by including the latest information.
The whole history of the Geet Kosh may be read in the My Story section of the above-mentioned website. It is felt unnecessary to repeat it here. Suffice it to say that after the pioneering work of Firoze Rangoonwalla and BV Dharap, Geet Kosh was a unique and original compilation work expanding the earlier work in many directions.
The database on the website is divided into three section for convenience. The Censor Certificate section has the information about the censored films. The Filmography section has the information about film production and other details. The Song section has detailed information about the songs.
It is a work in progress.
This book is based on the Filmography Section of Hindi Talkies Feature Films from 1961 to 1970.
In addition to the main cast, which is available here and there, we have also included the Junior Artists and Group Dancers for each film, if the video is available.
Paperback, 6 by 9 in, 232 pages. Rs 520 and $8.50 (International)
