This review is from: Naam (Amazon Video)
great film..great songs...first saw this 30 years ago when i was a teenager and was thoroughly impressed by Sanjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav,Poonam Dhillon and Amrita Singh...I remember the songs stayed with me for a number of years...a special mention to Paresh Rawal in his first ,role I think and Pankaj Udhas in his performance of CHITHHI AAYEE HAI is just great...Thanks to Mahesh Bhatt for a wonderful directorial effort...

4.0 out of 5 stars informative read.well written, 31 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a narrative of one man's battle against hepatitis c. Some of his ideas are a bit too strong minded than the average ability to do,but overall, where there is a will there is a way.And he proves it by a careful control in his character,he manages to overcome hepatitis c completely . He goes into all the diets he goes into for this as well as the exercise and the medication.
the author's style of writing is also full of colour and description and flair.

Jheel Kinare aur doosre afsane

5.0 out of 5 stars Qaiser Saleem...Thank you for this AMAZING collection..., 18 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
mr qaiser saleem in his collection of short stories 'JHEEL KINARE AUR DOOSRE AFSANE' has written a masterly work where the stories are all like paintings of the onward march of time,where everything seems to remain the same but when you look at it closely,a lot has changed.mr saleem reminds me a lot of the great era of mid-twentieth century short story greats like sahadat hassan manto,krishan chandar and rajinder singh bedi.
his stories about modern educational dearth of literary trends that fail to inspire,the generally alarming state of the elderly in the story about the widower with the three sons who have disappointed him,and the story about the lonely spinster with the cat,and the novella of the two brothers and the prostitute create characters on a collision course with destiny to find their own salvation.
in his most profound moments,mr saleem is poetical.in his comic and humourous,his wry observations of age and youth,love and loneliness,wealth and poverty,create a spirit of freshness that i have not experienced in urdu literature for over a decade now.in fact,whether happy or sad,he touches a poignant cord with his readers creating an immediate empathy with his characters.you immediately begin to ask 'what would i do in a situation like that?' and in cases where u cannot do anything,u immediately sympathise.
his characters have one sided opinions,eccentric opinions,but from world-weariness and experience,rather than naivette.that is why when a character like barkat,who is naive and doesn't read the prostitute right,you feel sympathy but u don't laugh at him. because his naivette springs from feeling sorry for someone who needs help rather than someone who is naive because of greed or fear
to sum up,What a great great collection of stories u have given to the world mr saleem...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PUT UP YOUR OTHER WORK ON KINDLE AS WELL.AS OF NOW, I HAVE DOWNLOADED 'GHAAO AUR DOOSRE AFSANE' READY TO BE READ.I WILL LEAVE A REVIEW SOON.
READERS,BUY THIS BOOK AND READ IT...U WILL LOVE IT IF U LIKE SOMETHING WITH A HEART....ALLAH HAFIZ

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo MR SALEEM...What a great collection of short stories, 17 Nov. 2012
THIS REVIEW IS FOR 'JHEEL KINARE AUR DOOSRE AFSAANE' which I have accidentally written under the reviews for 'GHAAO AUR DOOSRE AFSAANE'THE REVIEW FOR THAT WILL FOLLOW SHORTLY.
First of all, I was very glad to find an Urdu writer on Kindle.Secondly,I was a little disappointed that there were not more.Because I am sure where there is mr saleem there'll be others as well.Back to the book.
I am glad i downloaded it and read it because this collection reminded me of the greats of Urdu.People like manto,krishan chander,rajinder singh bedi.there actually was real fire in the stories of mr saleem.The stories are all told with a scientist's precision of detail.
the story about literature and books being read being a past culture,slowly disappearing,touched me a lot.And the stories about the three sons of the widower really took you into the heart of the loneliness faced by those elderly who have done well for themselves but whose grown up children have disappointed them.
Similarly the story about the lonely school teacher also had a great effect.I found that the evocation of the various phases of rural and urban life were just exquisite and tender.there was great colour in mr saleem's descriptions,both of people and situations and also a certain ethos of the atmosphere of Time.There seems to be a great preoccupation with time gone,time present and time to come.Each is portrayed in a canvas of the painter's brush with masterly strokes of definition.
However,the crowning glory of this collection 'JHEEL KINARE' is the novella about the two brothers and the prostitute.It is a masterly stroke of genius.the conversations between the brothers and the girl all remind one of three people helplessly on a course of heartbreak and despair,but without the additional benefits of creative and worldly wise experience for one.
THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN MISTAKENLY WRITTEN UNDER THE HEADING OF 'GHAAO AUR DOOSRAE AFSAANEY' whereas in effect it is about 'JHEEL KINARE AUR DOOSRE AFSAANE'.' Ghaao aur doosre afsaane' has already been downloaded and ready to be read.i will keep posting as and when i have read more of the wonderful mr qaiser saleem.
To sum up.What a great collection of stories in the native urdu text and how i wish there were more of us writing in urdu on the kindle.Please please mr saleem put up all your work on instant download on kindle,nook as well maybe, but this literature needs to be read.The coming generation of urdu writers, and the present ones like myself,NEED these stories and these literary conventions that u r a master of.
BRAVO!And THANK YOU! for being the writer that you are.I want to download all your stuff.
To all urdu literature fans,I say PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read these stories.U will not be disappointed ******FIVE STARS
