Versatile Actor Om Puri


om-puriOm Puri, who died January 5, was among the most talented and versatile actors in the Indian film world. Starting his film career in 1972, he belonged to the parallel cinema movement in the 80s which produced some of the most outstanding films exploring various aspects of the Indian society. Om Puri along with Amrish Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Raj Babbar were part of the new wave who revolutionized the Indian film industry by setting higher standards with their superb performances and dialogue delivery. Together they smashed the cult worshiping of heroes and heroines of ‘70s and ‘80s who dominated the Indian film scene not necessarily by their acting talents but more by their looks.
