Happy Birthday Pran!

What a perfect time for you to stop over to:

PRAN – The legend of Hindi Cinema: A Glowing Tribute to the “Villain of the Millenium.”

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)

The site is a shrine to the  extrodinary  villain and has a lot of great information and a comprehensive photo gallery of Pran.  I am particularly fond of the paintings of Pran.

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?

Pran’s website states:

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!

Read a bit more about Pran HERE and watch a video of him in his home from 2008 where he’s looking fantastic, feeding his dogs some biscuits.
