Praz Bumper Gold : DEEWAR (Hindi, 1975)
I second praz for “In my humble opinion this is Yash Chopra’s best film as a director, nothing much else holds a candle in front of DEEWAAR“. Thanks Praz for this priceless review.
Carrying on from my earlier Bachchan-Salim Javed classics KAALA PATTHAR, DOSTANA, and TRISHUL. My dream is to cover off every Bachchan film….
1975 is without a shred of doubt one of the best years the Hindi film industry ever saw, it’s not only the same year Ramesh Sippy’s timeless masterpiece SHOLAY graced the silver-screen, it’s also the year Yash Chopra’s ever-green DEEWAR blew audiences away, and while most critics say SHOLAY is the best Commercial Hindi film Bombay cinema ever churned out during that era, I would disagree and give the honour to DEEWAR by a slight nudge, though it’s a tough call as both films in their own right changed the face of Hindi cinema forever.
