Bollywood's loss

The last couple of weeks have been bad for Bollywood, the Hindi film industry. On the 12th of January, veteran actor Amrish Puri passed away of a blood clot in his brain. Amrish Puri for me was the ONLY villian who really could send a shudder down the heart just by means of his terrific screen presence, booming eyes and the sharp and penetrating eyes. Whether it be Mogambo of Mr. India, Bhujang of Tridev or Choudhury Baldev Singh of DDLJ, Amrish Puri would always add so much of credibility and substance to his character that one would remember it forever. Indeed, it is a great loss of a wonderful talent.

Another loss was that of Parveen Babi, the yesteryear actress who was found dead in her residence on the 22nd of January. This wonderful and beautiful actress will be best remembered for her roles in Deewar and Namak Halal, where she stood her own against stalwarts such as Big B and Shashi Kapoor. Then she suddenly disappeared in the mid-80s only to resurface around 5 years ago. She had put on lots of weight, was hardly recognizable and in a surprise move, she filed a petition against some of her peers such as Big B, that they tried to kill her. Needless to say, the case did not go far. Whatever may be the actual issue, this loss is indeed quite sad because it is difficult for anyone to seduce a nation like she did in "Jawaani Jaaneman Haseene Dilrooba ..."
