It's Not what Arvind Vyas says
9 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

Mr. Arvind Vyas has got it absolutely wrong. He says Cinema Cinema is a collection of unreleased movie shoots but it's not true. Cinema Cinema is a nice review of Indian cinema starting from mute films to 1979. All these films were censored by board & officially released. Mr.Arvind Vyas is confusing himself. What he is saying is all about Shahab Ahmed's "Film hi Film". This film contains cuts from unreleased films like Naya Mandir (Manoj-Mala), Shikwa(Dilip-Nutan), Behrupiya (Raj Kapur), Sajan ki Galiyan(Dev Anand-Sadhna)and many more. Notable inclusion of a song picturised on Mr.Bachchan & female co-star. Amitabh Bachchan was removed from the film & same song was repicturised with Sanjay as hero, with same heroine, same location. The film was officially released but sans Mr.Bachchan. I am not recollecting the name of the film. Also this film has a some cuts from a film starring Guru Dutt-Sadhan. A Duet picturised on deck of a ship. A club Dance picturised on Helen. A cut from Ye Basti Ye log (Balraj Sahni-Madhubala). So it's Film Hi Film my friend not Cinema Cinema!
