In one of his rare forays into comedy, Sunil Dutt played Waheeda Rehman’s suitor in Ek Phool Char Kante (1960), who has to impress each of her four uncles in order to marry her. The task is Herculean. If one uncle (Dhumal) believes that piety and belief in Hindu mythology makes for a good husband, another (Rashid Khan) believes that only a fit man proficient in yoga is the perfect ‘Mr Right’ for his niece.  If the third geezer (David) wants the man in question to be an actor par excellence, the

His looks being better he got chance to act in films Maalik and Waris (opp. Suraiyya), Sone ki chidiyan (Nutan), Dil e Naadan and Lala Rukh (SHYAMA), एक Gaon ki Kahani (Mala Sinha), Dak Babu (Nadira).

In many ways, this is the underlying message of Gulzar’s career-defining movie (he wrote and directed it) – that someone’s disability should be treated as just another aspect of their life, not ignored, but not pitied, ridiculed or bothered in any way. Their way of experiencing life might be different, but their experience is in no way less...

Actor par excellence :Sanjeev Kumar

He died young but now lives forever. This could be the epitaph for Sanjeev Kumar who made versatility his nickname in a film career spanning two decades. Though it is said that they die young whom Gods love more, yet it’s sad that Sanjeev, who enacted dozens of unforgettable aged characters, did not live to see even fifty summers when there was still an immense reservoir of brilliance to be tapped. Very few could transcend limits of his histrionics.

In Hindi cinema, the 1950s is considered to be the Golden Era and even in an era dominated by such forces as Raj Kapoor, V Shantaram, Bimal Roy, Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, B R Chopra, and Mehboob Khan, the name 'Guru Dutt' was spoken with respect. Of course, like the filmmaker he's most often compared to — Orson Welles — Dutt's work started getting its due only after his tragic death.

From essaying the strict, yet soft-hearted ‘bauji’ in ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ to playing the villain ‘Mogambo’ in ‘Mr India’, Amrish Puri acted in more than 400 films in his over three-decade career.

The family drama had madan mohan as it's music director. The songs ' Mai Nigahein tere chehre se hataaoon kaise' by Rafi and ' Agar muzse mohabbat hai' by Lata Mangeshkar were highlights of the film.
Two sisters (Tanuja and Mala sinha) deeply in love with same man (Dharmendra). Baharein Phir bhi aayegi is a typical love triangle in which the two sisters compete with each other for sacrifice. The otherwise average film is saved by O. P Nayyar's impressive soundtrack. The songs ' Badal jaye Agar Mali', ' Apte hasin rook pe', ' Koi kah de kah de' ' Woh hanske mile' had OPN written all over them.

The plot of the movie is absolutely modern and was much ahead of its times when it was made in 1965. All characters in the movie are contemporary and fresh. The movie is clean and engaging.  Dev Anand is not three timing or fooling his heroines. One is homely, one is an actress and one is a high society woman. The high society woman also promises Devdutt a brilliant career, yet, Dev does not go astray. Climax, shot in color, reveals to whom Dev marries finally. A film not to miss...

In 1976, while he was on tour in a city in America, he suddenly suffered a heart attack during a concert. On August 27, Mukesh suddenly left this world. Bollywood was deeply shocked by his sudden passing. No one could believe that Mukesh would leave like this. However, his death had given the deepest shock to Raj Kapoor. When Raj Kapoor came to know about Mukesh's death, he said, 'Now my voice is gone...'.
Based on a Bengali play, " En Din Ratre", Jagte Raho sheds light on the duplicity of corruption infested and morally defunct society. Raj Kapoor has very few dialogues in the film, save for long monologue at the end about the hypocrisy of the amoral society. However the film ends on optimistic notes, that there is certainly light at the end of the dark tunnel. The bhajan 'Jaago Mohan Pyaare' ushers in a new day and a sense of hope, taking forward the symbolism of light and darkness in the film.

Zanjeer was a trendsetter film. It replaced romance with violence in Bollywood. An angry young man with grudge against the corrupt society became a popular theme later on. Amitabh's role was initially offered to eccentric Rajkumar who refused it. It then was offered to Dharmendra, Devanand. Both refused it (No song to Hero). Finally Pran suggested Amitabh's name. The rest is history
