The media went berserk at the trailer release of Ranbir Kapoor's latest movie BESHARAM on Thursday. However ardent fans of Amitabh Bachchan went down memory lane remembering his late 70's movie BESHARAM.
For today's generation who may not be aware of Bachchan's BESHARAM Glamsham.Com reveals few unknown facets.
The movie was released in 1978 when Amitabh Bachchan was at his peak. The year saw six of his movies hitting the screen. The movies were DON, TRISHUL, MUQADDAR KA SIKANDAR, KASME VAADE, GANGA KI SAUGANDH and BESHARAM. Interestingly all the movies proved super hit at the box office except BESHARAM, which was a major debacle.
The movie was a commercial 'masala' movie with all ingredients like big sets, big stars, action, comedy and music by Kalyanji Anandji, who also scored for DON and MUQADDAR KA SIKANDAR. The movie had top stars like Sharmila Tagore, Bindu, Amjad Khan and Deven Verma.
The other highlight of the movie was that the movie was famous comedian Devan Verma's debut film as producer and director. Another remarkable feature of the movie was that Deven Verma played a triple role like Mehmood in HUMJOLI. The only difference being in HUMJOLI Mehmood imitated the three generations of Kapoors -Prithviraj, Raj and the Randhir Kapoor, while Deven Verma played son, father and mother's three roles!
