The present generation must be unaware of the handsomeness of Dharmendra. He is known majorly as garam dharam but we know him when he was Naram dharam as well. His soft-boy era can put every other actor of any generation in the industry to shame. He had this perfect face with just the right set of jawline, beautiful expressive eyes and that fab physique.

His support for her is simply the best thing you will ever watch in Hindi cinema ever!


Dharmendra is not an ideal man here but the guilt that he feels for failing to save a woman from sexual assault rips his conscience apart. He is softer, sometimes kinder and mostly conflicted.
