The adman cum columnist Santosh Desai pens a nostalgic tribute to Pran, in The Times of India:
“Today, villainy has for all practical purposes moved into the dimensions of the hyperreal. To be considered a villain, one has to maim, savage and disembowel a large number of people, preferably in slow motion.
“The simple pleasures of villainy—getting someone to sign a will, marrying the girl at gunpoint, succumbing to the hero’s blows after a climactic showdown involving jeep chases, cliff edges and construction sites with dynamite going off every now and then- have all been lost.
“Even the notion of the bad-turned-good has lost the power it once had, for the line between the two is irredeemably blurred today.”

Over 400 movies!!!!!
and he has never seen a movie in his life.
he stood by everyone, and on his death see the hypocrites who had used him , now shamelessly extol him.
nothing more need be said. that and pran says it all.
read the book. highly recommended.
I find this bemusing and amusing. Nothing in Churumuri when the equally fabulous and more topical (to Churumuri) P B Shreenivas passes away……..
So we need more simplistic movies.
Only TOI can come up with something as stupid as this.
Gaby spot…another sign Churmuri is becoming anti-kannadiga slowly but surely
Could have used a better image for such an immense personality.
