    1 Seeta aur Geeta
    2 Bimal Roy
    3 The Ambitious Bhappi Sonie
    4 of course, Arjun Hingorani
    5 The Legendary Pramod Chakravorty
    6 Dulal Guha
    7 No idea????
    8 The all-time Great Manmohan Desai
    9 Vijay Anand and Maybe, Hrishikesh Murkherji
    10. of course, At-Maram with the “Super-duper” Hit.. Shikar

    At least a 9/10 is good enough, isn’t it??

    Yes, both of you get a 9/10.

    For #7, Hrishikesh Mukherjee himself was the original choice 🙂 Caught you with a bouncer, right? Yes, that’s the right answer. Dharmendra was very much impressed by his directorial capabilities in Anupama and hence chose to cast himself with pretty much the same team in Satyakam (1969).

      I was surprised that Dharmendra didn’t win the Filmfare Best Actor Award for Satyakam in 1969.. I feel his performance was better than Ashok Kumar’s (The winner) for Bramachiri….. To even make it more insulting, he was not even Nominated….And Rajesh Khanna received 2 for Itefaq and Aradhana..

      As “Acting per se”, Dharmendra was the most “Underrated” of his generation.. What say, Dharamgaram???

      • dharamgaram says:

        @GKK – Do you mean Shammi Kapoor for Brahmachari?

        Yes, Dharmendra WAS one of the most underrated actors of his generation. If you watch any of his movies, irrespective of the director, the performances were fabulous. I am not saying this because I am his fan, but because of the kind of roles he portrayed. He was and IS a ‘lambi race ka ghoda’ 🙂
