Tilak Rishi, born in India, has been working as a career corporate executive, after doing his MBA. Passionately pursuing his hobby for writing, he also remained a regular contributor to newspapers in India and the U.S. Many true happenings and characters he came across in life, including interaction with former president Bill Clinton, inspired Paradise Lost and Found, his first novel. A family saga, it starts from Kashmir, when this paradise on earth is lost for the tourists who thronged in thousands every year to enjoy its scenic splendor. Terrorists have turned it into one of the most dangerous places in the world. The family is not only a witness to the loss of this paradise, but also to another tragedy of much bigger magnitude. In the aftermath of the partition of India, along with millions uprooted from their homes in Pakistan, the family leaves behind all that it has in Lahore. Starting from a scratch on the difficult path to progress, it still has many joyful moments when along the way it makes a difference in many a life. The survival-to-success story climaxes in California where the family finds the paradise that was lost in Kashmir.

Cannot Wait To Watch PINK

Dear Amitji,
“ .. till then .. PINK .. “ (DAY - 3088)

Sir, PINK PINK PINK… not only “till then PINK”, but much before this, since the day we came to know from your post that title of the movie is PINK, we have been thinking PINK and Pink only and could keep thinking PINK  till your next release - Aankhen-2 or Sirkar- 3 or may be any other before these -  we assure you. Now that the D-day is here - September 16 - we send you and the entire Team our heartiest congratulations and best wishes and a quote from America’s celebrated poet that seem to relate to the three sweet and pretty girls in PINK:

A wise woman wishes to be no one's enemy;
a wise woman refuses to be anyone's victim.
- Maya Angelou

Sir, we are so overwhelmed to read about reactions of some of our female  celebrities who were invited to a special screening of PINK the other day:

An overwhelmed Kangana Ranaut actually left the screening before meeting the cast and sent a Whatsapp message to Pink actress Andrea Tariang. She wrote, “I wish I wasn’t so emotionally fragile and could say this in person but I loved your work – so honest and so natural. Congratulations and I feel this will be a big success, so be ready for it.”

Preity Zinta has already given Pink a five-star rating and wrote this on Twitter, “Preity Zinta Wow Just saw PINK ! The most RELEVANT film of this year. 5 Stars to all in this film & 500 Stars to @SrBachchan.” These kind of superlative reactions are being shared by everyone who watched the film.

Neha Dhupia also shared the sentiment. “Very rarely do u come across a film that touches every nerve,hurts ur gut n leaves u speechless. #pink u are magical.Congrats @ShoojitSircar,” she wrote.

Kriti Sanon also said it can’t be missed, “So glad that films like #Pink r being made! Amazing performances, relevant content & so well paced. @ShoojitSircar @SrBachchan @taapsee … Absolutely loved #Pink Real & super relevant!Questions the shameless mindset of our patriarchal society & hits the perfect note!a MUST WATCH.”

"Very rarely do you come across a film that touches every nerve, hurts your gut and leaves you speechless. #pink you are magical. Congrats @ShoojitSircar."

Sultan actor Amit Sadh was left in tears after watching the film. “Each & every character is a necessity in the film. I have not cried so much in so long. #pink is everything a cinema lover like me wants.”

Besides, here is what the renowned film critic Taran Adarsh felt about the film:

“Watched #Pink… Shocked. Stunned. Speechless… An OUTSTANDING movie in every respect… Taut writing and exemplary direction…”

Sir, we cannot wait to watch Pink on its opening day, “till then… PINK”

“Many of my movies have strong female leads- brave, self-sufficient girls that don't think twice about fighting for what they believe with all their heart. They'll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.”
Hayao Miyazaki
