Dharmendra Deol (B.1935)

Actor born in Phagwara, Punjab. Former mechanic in a factory. Top Hindi star for three decades. Created an influential image as a markedly North Indian, even specifically Punjabi macho man devoted to his mother and committed to upholding the honour of the family or of the village. Since the mid-70s, after Bachchan’s impact, mainly in action films, occasionally using complicated gadgetry but always emphasising peasant simplicity and beating the villain in physical combat. Since mid-80s, notably in T. Rama Rao’s films but also in other Madras-based Hindi productions, his presence is used mainly to ensure a film’s nationwide distribution in a respectable economic category. His early 60s films, in sharp contrast to his current post-Sholay image, presented a secularised Hindustani version of Bengali literary stereotypes, launched by Bimal Roy’s Bandini and continued in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s 60s socials (Anupama, Manjhli Didi, Satyakam) and in Phani Majumdar’s Akashdeep. Early 70s work transposed this image into tales of existential suffering (Mohan Segal?’s Raja Jani) and into Mukherjee’s whimsical comedies (Guddi, Chupke Chupke) made alongside Pramod Chakravarty and Arjun Hingorani thrillers and films like Vijay Anand’s Blackmail. Currently promoting his son Sunny Deol (e.g. Sunny; Ghayal, 1990); best-known performances of the 90s in J.P. Dutta films.
