Well, we’re sure the pictures will make you go all nostalgic.

Mr. India, it was far ahead of its time, with a strong patriotic message. Mr. India managed to strike a balance between novelty, technology and all the ingredients of a typically entertaining pot-boiler.

Talking about the film as it completes 30 years, producer Boney Kapoor said, "I'm so happy and proud that people remember Mr. India fondly even today. I remember being one of the youngest members behind the camera and today on sets of Mom, I'm the eldest member. With Mr. India we were never dependent on the stardom of the actors, just on the magic of the film. All our fight sequences, stunts and the destruction, it was real-time direction and special effects; not done during post-production.”

Boney Kapoor is now teaming up again with his wife Sridevi on the silver screen for Mom. It happens to be Sridevi’s 300th film and 2017 marks her 50th year in films.

Coming to Mr. India, here’s congratulating the makers for reaching the milestone.
