Chupke Chupke ♥
I am ashamed to say I haven't seen many Dharmendra films but that one was just all kinds of adorable.

Heh, Sunny Deol's Damini portrayal was so iconic that to this day hindi serials have storylines about alcoholic lawyers with troubled pasts who come into the plot to rescue the heroine. Most recent example being in a show called Tere Mere Sapne I think.

I LOVE BARSAAT. Soooooooo much! Seriously. Have a post lined up for it as well and I can't wait to read your thoughts.

Agreed about Abhay, he always makes interesting film choices.


I just thought of another post.

Damn this Deol Dhamaka is addictive.

Thanks for the plug :) and GASP! You loved Bobby before your all consuming love for Sunny took over? I NEVER suspected.


@Ness Well, I think it just shows that if you hit just the wrong film, you can seriously be put off by someone. Damini is interesting, too, because I seriously hate Rishi's character in that film. If that had been the first Rishi film I'd seen, I might not have watched another one, or at least not for a long while.

I think that's one of the reasons I'm so fascinated by first films -- not only the first film/debut film of an actor -- but also the first film we see them in as a viewer. I think I've got something lined up about that when I look at some first films this month, at this point I can't remember if I've written it or if I've planned to.

@Never-evil Poor Abhay. Suddenly Deol Dhamaka is reducing him to "he makes interesting film choices". Which is kind of interesting. :-)
