By Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
Remember the realistic action of YUVA? Or some unbelievable gravity-defying stunts of HUMSE HAI MUQABLA and HINDUSTANI? The man behind all this was Vikram Dharma. Sadly, his last work would be seen in none other Mani Ratnam's January 12th release - GURU.
Vikram Dharma died due to a cardiac arrest earlier this year in June which marked an end to an excellent career that spanned decades.
A known name in both South and Mumbai made films; Vikram Dharma started his Hindi film career with Govinda starrer PRATEEKSHA . His claim to fame came in 1994 when his superb stunts for HUMSE HAI MUQABLA [KADHALAN in Tamil] were much appreciated.
Later he became a popular name down South with films like INDIAN and RATCHAKAN while in Hindi movies, he reached the zenith of success with YUVA 
His work was last seen in 2006 release FIGHT CLUB where he came up with some of the most exciting kicks and punches for an all-male film that had as many 10 protagonists. The film was appreciated for the innovative approach it took towards kick boxing.
While GURU is Vikram Dharma's last film for which he choreographed action, his work would also be seen in Big B's long delayed ZAMAANAT.
