What a perfect time for you to stop over to:
Born on 12th. February,1920 at Delhi, Pran is endowed with a super intellect and equipped with the natural gift of an artist. He is generous, noble, emotional and a sensitive soul. Refined and cultured in his outlook and habits. he commands the highest respect and is loved and admired by everyone. (source)
To honor Pran on his birthday, I offer my visual gift of screen caps of the villain, a little something I like to call…
Pran aur Flask
I first fell for Pran in Zanjeer (1973), but since he was a nice guy in that it doesn’t quite count. I also loved him abandoning /losing his children, toting that box of gold around,washing shoes with whiskey, etc. in Amar Akbar Anthony (1977). It is as the pure villain where Pran really shines, innit? I adored his arrogance in Brahmchari (1968) and his cold, cold heart in Purab Aur Paschim (1970). Now duniya, tell me, what are your favorite Pran films? When did you first fall in love with Pran and why?

It’s too late to get him a birthday card on time, but I may just send him a little greeting telling him how much I adore his work. Maybe you will want to as well. Now let’s party with Pran for his birthday:
Yes Pran, it’s me Suzy (aka Sita-ji) and I do really love you!
