Madhuri Dixit has been a wonderful actress of Bollywood. Her acting, her dance and her energy are appreciated often. She is a perfect dancer and that is why she is one of the favourite dancer of choreographer Saroj Khan. The dance numbers of Madhuri enjoyed a cult status which is rare to actresses of today. Madhuri’s “Choli Ke Peeche” song from the movie Khalnayak (starring Sanjay Dutt opposite Madhuri) made people swoon and go “ooh”.

Madhuri Dixit was an item girl in her own movie. Even in Khalnayak she did this song because no one else could have done that in a better way. Though there are few other actresses who appeared into several item numbers but they lack the charm and grace Madhuri had. Such actresses include Rakhi Sawant, Celina Jaitley , Mallika Sherawat etc.

Apart from Madhuri Dixit, one more name that has created legends in the world of Hindi Cinema is of Helen. We all remember her song “Mehbooba Mehbooba” from “Sholay“. Helen’s song used to inspire a lot of young dancers. Even today there are many dancers who want to dance in the way of Helen. The dance numbers of Madhuri Dixit and Helen remain iconic even today.

Madhuri with Sanjay Dutt

November 9, 2009 Leave a comment

The rebel actor of bollywood Sanjay Dutt and the powerful dancer of the 90s Madhuri Dixit have worked together in many films sharing great chemistry on-screen.

In Saajan, Sanjay Dutt played the role of a handicapped poet where he dedicated all his poems to Madhuri Dixit. Madhuri Dixit becomes a big admirer of the him without knowing him personally. The songs in the flick like ‘Jiye to jiye kaise bin aapke’, ‘dekha hai pehli baar’, ‘tu shayar hai’, etc, created storm on the silver screen.

Sanjay Dutt also acted opposite Madhuri Dixit in the film Khalnayak. It was an experiment done by Subhash Ghai by casting Sanjay Dutt in a negative role but the audience responded to the challenge. Jackie also did well in the film.

The other notable film of the successful pair includes Mahanta. In Sahibaan, Sanjay again acted opposite Madhuri as a second hero, where the romantic part was performed by Rishi Kapoor. The pair also acted in Thanedaar and Kanoon Apna Apna and the films are still appreciated by filmlovers.

Madhuri’s dazzling performances

Ram Lakhan
This 1989 Subhash Ghai entertainer saw Madhuri opposite his favorite co-star Anil Kapoor, re-inforcing one of the most enduring screen pairs to date. She was the demure grocer’s daughter; he, the corrupt cop with an agenda all his own. A full-blooded masala superhit that’s still great fun to watch.

Mrityudand
One of Madhuri’s most critically-acclaimed performances came with this powerful 1997 Prakash Jha product.In a dark and socially relevant film about women’s rights, she infuses her character Phoolva with overwhelming vitality.

Khalnayak
The controversial Choli ke peechche song remains this 1993 Subhash Ghai film’s highlight, but there was much more to it than that.Starring opposite Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri played Ganga, a policewoman masquerading as a dancing girl in her attempt at entrapment. A gripping ride.

Devdas
It’s safe to say that Dixit was the finest thing in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s excessive 2002 adaptation of Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s classic novel.Miscast in a film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai in the lead roles, she played Chandramukhi the courtesan with delicate fragility.

Check out the enlisted and go watch them.

Saajan -Must watch for All Madhuri Fans

June 5, 2009 1 comment
Saajan
Image via Wikipedia

You must watch, Saajan because it’s a surprisingly not-too-melodramatic and sweet love story-slash-romance, especially if you are a Sanjay Dutt and Madhuri Dixit fan. There is a lot of abominable early 90s styling (poor Madhuri!—her career was at its height during a truly awful time for clothing, hair and heroes) and
plenty of evidence that money does not buy taste.

But it’s good fun if you like light romantic fluff and can at least tolerate the cheesy excess.

Story
Aman is a disabled orphan befriended (and defended) by young rich boy Akash Verma when all the other orphans torment him with his own crutch.

Akash’s parents (Kader Khan and Reema Lagoo—who is gloriously allowed to look her own age, and is beautiful) adopt Aman and treat him with the same love as they do their own son. Aman (Sanjay Dutt) grows up to be a sensitive poet while Akash (Salman Khan) grows up to be a happy-go-lucky womanizer, but they are still as close as any real brothers could be. Aman is shunned by the ladies because of his deformed leg and ugly face (this is all a little unbelievable since Sanjay—despite the unfortunate hair—is upright and tall, and very handsome if you ask me).

There are of course hair continuity issues throughout too. It wouldn’t be a) the 90s or b) a Sanju Baba film if there weren’t.

Aman pours his sad feelings out in his poetry, which is published under the pseudonym Sagar and has won him legions of fans. One such fan is Pooja (Madhuri Dixit), who writes letters to Sagar. We know she is special because his publisher tells us so, and also because when he writes back a wind machine blows his hair and papers about.

Also, when Pooja plays piano and sings, another machine swirls fog around her.

It doesn’t get any more 90s-special than that! Well, maybe this headboard tops it. Takes the wedding cake, so to speak.

Anyway, they fall in love through their extremely flowery correspondence, although Aman/Sagar doesn’t send Pooja a photo of himself when she asks for one, fearing that she’ll be repulsed by his hideous aspect.

Then Aman is sent to Ooty to work on a building project for his father; guess who owns a bookstore in Ooty with her Ma?

After the usual initial sparring, Pooja and Aman become friends but Aman is still too scared to tell her about his feelings, or that he is the poet she is so enamored with. It doesn’t help when some goondas who are after Pooja beat him up until the police arrive to rescue them. But just as he is about to screw up his courage and tell her all, Akash arrives and falls (literally) head over heels for her.

Once he has convinced Aman that he’s serious for once in his life, Aman decides to sacrifice his love for the sake of his brother.

Okay, so there is some melodrama. Aman tells Akash that Pooja loves a poet named Sagar and convinces him to pose as Sagar to win her. To be fair, Akash is a bit resistant at first.

But brotherly persuasion prevails, and we’re off and running. What could possibly go wrong? Will Pooja fall for the faux Sagar? Will Akash discover Aman’s sacrifice? What will he do if he does? Will
Aman’s ugly face and hopelessly crippled body ever stop repelling all of womankind?

Performances
It sounds dreadful, and to be honest I do feel like I shouldn’t like this film as much as I do. But the characters are well drawn, and Sanjay Dutt is a good actor (especially when contrasted against
Salman’s chest-thumping emoting), which lends credibility to Aman’s insecurities and makes you want to root for him. Madhuri is good too as clueless Pooja, clinging to an ideal so tightly that she can’t see
the true love right in front of her, and as sparkly and beautiful as she usually is. Laxmikant Berde as servant Lakshmi is a huge improvement on Johnny Lever for comic relief too.
