Kundan Shah's 1983 cult film Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, a political satire, will be re-released on Nov 2.
NFDC (National Film Development Corporation) in association with PVR Director's Rare will re-release the digitally restored version exclusively across PVR Cinemas in 11 cities including Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Vadodara, Ahmedabad, Surat, and Gurgaon.
"Hats off to NFDC and PVR Director's Rare for taking this initiative to re-release my film again. I am very excited and hoping that the audiences are as excited as well to watch Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro in theatres," Shah said in a statement.
PVR Director's Rare is an alternative programming initiative of PVR Cinemas to support the theatrical release of critically acclaimed, independent films.
Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro narrated a tale of two simple and honest photographers, essayed by Naseeruddin Shah and Ravi Vaswani. They witness a murder and get dragged into the corrupt real estate circle where politicians and bureaucrats are involved.
The movie, which also featured actors like Pankaj Kapur, Om Puri, Satish Shah, Neena Gupta and Satish Kaushik, is noted for its slapstick humour.
Advance bookings for the film started Friday across PVR Cinemas.
