Remembering Amrish Puri, one of Hindi cinema’s greatest villainous actors of all time, on his 15th death anniversary today.
Steven Spielberg called him the greatest villain in the world. And few would dispute this statement. With big Gothic eyes, a baritone voice, and good physique, Amrish Puri had evil written all over his face. Leave aside the reel crimes, Puri could intimidate people simply with his eyes. Hindi cinema has produced many a lecherous villain but none with the persona of Puri, none who evoked the same fear as this hefty Punjabi did.
