Shivendra Singh's Celluloid Man, another documentary more than two-hour tribute to P.K. Nair, the former curator of the Indian National Film Archives. The interviews with film personalities influenced by his efforts (Nasserudin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Girish Kasaravalli, et al) are as illuminating as the scenes of Nair returning to the places where he had found lost films and the clips from those films.
The scenes where Nairsaab refer's to the movies that have been archived are mesmerizing. This film was screened at all major festivals in India as a tribute to Nairsaab. I had the pleasure of watching the movie with Nairsaab & the director Shivender Singh Durgapur's presence at Bangalore Festival. Who later invited me to his house in Pune, where I eventually went to spend some time with the Legend man of Indian cinema.
