Hr­ishikesh Mukher­jee’s films were made on shoe­string bud­gets, us­ing ac­tors’ per­sonal clothes and houses. This speaks vol­umes about the sheer strength of the scripts. I par­tic­u­larly like Milli be­cause it is able to nar­rate a sim­ple story through the lives of two or­di­nary in­di­vid­u­als. The tri­umph of life over death, good over evil and re­silience over troubles man­ages to strike a chord with the au­di­ence. The char­ac­ters and sit­u­a­tions were ex­tremely re­al­is­tic. It was as if hear­ing a story about some­one we might know.
