Yashpal Sharma - For and against the law
By Joginder Tuteja, Bollywood Trade News Network
Yashpal Sharma is one of the most talented yet underrated actors in the world of Hindi films today.
Starting his career around a decade back with films like HAZAAR CHAURASI KI MAA, ARJUN PANDIT, SHOOL and LAGAAN, he is known for his sharp acumen when choosing his subjects carefully. His latest repertoire of films like KISNA, YAHAAN and APAHARAN are good enough examples of that.
This is the reason why one looks forward to his performances in two of his back to back films that release this month. While in ANWAR that releases on January 12, he enacts the role of an honest law keeper who is a cop and wants peace in his area, in RISK which comes a week later he plays a local goon who is on the other side of the law and works for Vinod Khanna.
One can hardly associate him with a role that doesn't suit him and in the same breath there is not a single performance where he hasn't delivered. ANWAR and RISK should be no exceptions!
