Union Information ministry will properly
restore and preserve remaining films of Bengal`s biggest matinee idol, Uttam
Kumar, promised Indian State Minister
for Communications Gurudas Kamath .
It may be mentioned that in the meantime more
than half of Uttam’s movies have already been destroyed over this long time.
Nearly after three decades of his death the Central Communication ministry in
India has published a commemorative stamp .
Commitments to preserve Uttam’s movie have been
often made on such occasions but it has never been materialized. Film world
thinks that less than 100 of his films are now available for preservation.
