Danny Denzongpa : Bigger than a Hero

Danny Denzongpa : Agnipath , Kanch Cheena

I am hard core fan of Danny , I am following him since his initial movies like Milap , Mere Apne etc. .He is a fantastic actor & at par with the biggies like Amitabh , Dharmendra , Vinod Khanna , Firoz Khan , Sanjeev Kumar , Shatrughan Sinha & also performed well with his juniors like Sanjay Dutt , Sunney Deol , Ajay Devgan etc. I remember when we ( me & my eldest sis) watched Milap ( Echhadhari snakes) long back , we both started liking this young (then) Sikkimes un conventional looking actor. He improvises with every movie he acted specially in negative roles , he always excelled in his performance opposite an established actor and takes on acting stalwart like Raaj Kumar in Bulandi , Sanjeev Kumar in Devta , Amitabh in Agneepath & so on with grace & confidence , whereas many established actor failed .In Love Story Rajendra Kumar had tough time sharing screen space with this brilliant actor. His persona , acting talent & power pack screen presence gave many popular heros shivers & they look like poor sheeps or bachhas in many movies. Firoz Khan , Mukul Anand have always kept role reserved for Danny. I always found him well dressed in most of the movies apart from those atrangeee villaineous dressing & hair style.

He is known as deadliest villain of all time & I personally rate him at par with Amrish Puri & Pran . Personally a thorough gentleman and he always stayed away from the controversies , Bollywood politics & camps . A top heroine affair with a character artist is still not common , but he had affair with Parveen Babi & they live together for sometime .Few people know that Danny is one of the closest friend of Amitabh & is very close to the Bachchan family, which he never tried to encash.

Danny has acted in more than 150 movies ,& got many awards ,my fav Danny movies are ;

Mere Apne (1971) : Sanju : A new comer then ,as one of the local guy , who is always holding baby doll in his hand , A beautiful directional debut film of Legendary Gulzar & Shatru & Vinod Khanna best films ever along with Meena Kumari.

Agneepath (1990): Kancha Cheena : What a class , Postures , dialogues , Status , dressing & tower like personality who rule Bombay underworld & based somewhere in Mauritius, most of the scenes with Amitabh were memorable and only a powerful performer who’s image is bigger than many Hero’s can display such confident & command ,his hair style in entry scene (pic) at Mandwa & overall handsome attire throughout the movie is watchable .He used different dialogue delivery style ,my favorite dialogues are : Vijay Chauhan koo fool bhej do” & “Dushman jab bada ho jaye to ussse dost bana lo , apnee umar bad jatee hey” , apart from Amitabh's : Mera pura naam..Vijay..." sometime I wonder did I watched this movie over & over again for Vijay Dinanath Chauhan or for Kanch Cheena ?? I don’t think Sanju Baba will be able to match Kancha Cheena stature in Agneepath remake.

Bulundi : Power pack performances by Raaj Kumar & Danny & their betting.

Dhund by B.R.Chopra:Danny as crippled jealous husband of Zeenat Aman , a critically acclaimed performance.


Kala Sona

Devta : Extremely beautiful movie with star performances by Sanjeev Kumar , Danny & Shabana.

Hum : As Bakhtawar.

Ghatak : As Deadly Katya , nobody can match such commanding role.

36 Ghante : Scary character

Lahu Ke Do Rang :He gave tough competition to Vinod Khanna as his bad brother.

Aitbaar :Inspector Barua with slightly comic shade.
