If you like RamJet, you’ll LOVE this short video

Lawyer-cum-filmmaker Siddharth Acharya has made a mini-documentary about “perhaps the most famous name” in Indian law, the “maverick” “czar of the bar”, “child prodigy” and the “brain behind” the Anna Hazare movement, “smugglers’ lawyer”, ex-GLC Mumbai faculty, BCI chairman who actually did something, and, apparently, badminton player.

For a few archival photo gems of Jethmalani, including handsome, young Jethmalani, and a short and sweet run-through of some of the highlights of his life, check out this 6 minute clip below.

Explaining why he shot the documentary, Acharya wrote in an email: “His birthday was on September 14th and he turned 91 this time. I was reading Nalini Gera's biography on him and came across some untouched aspects of his life especially his childhood in pre-partition Sindh.

“His struggle after that followed by journey of becoming an eminent criminal lawyer fascinated me and I decided to make it.The film is a character and personality driven documentary which is based on facts and there is nothing critical about him shown. I launched film with him on Saturday and if required I can send you pictures of the event. He liked the film and has no objection on anything.”
