Are you a fan? We’ve got the list of 5 films Hema Malini did with Dharmendra.
1. Sholay – 1975
JP Dutta’s magnum opus the countryside western of its own kind is probably the most popular, if not the greatest film to have come out of Bollywood. The film is a study in itself, with its reprints and re-screenings done even in today’s day and age across theaters.
2. Seeta Aur Geeta – 1972
Back in the days when estranged twins and the happy-endings were roll-of-the-mill, Seeta and Geeta actually started the trend, with Hema Malini in a double role.
3. Dream Girl – 1977
A character she also played in her first film (Dream Girl), Hema Malini ended up as playing in a film with the same name.
Here she plays not one, not two, but 5 characters who steal money to run an orphanage.
4. The Burning Train – 1980
Directed by Ravi Chopra in 1980, the film had an all-star cast, and a steep injection of money into the budget. The film became popular after critics rated as the best ever action film with sequences that not only shocked onlookers but were difficult to shoot in those early days. The film after its opening failed at the box-office but is still hailed as the first real all-action film from Bollywood.
5. Razia Sultan – 1983
Based on the life of the only woman sultan of Delhi, Razia Sultan was not exactly a soaring success at the box-office. But the chemistry with Dharmendra was for everyone to see and critics also hailed the screenplay and direction.
