     4Gujarati and Hindi director, aka Mohammed 
     5Baloch. Born in Jamnagar; graduated from 
     6Bombay University and worked as a journalist, 
     7including film reviews in the magazine 
     8Chitarang. Involved in Gujarati theatre (1974- 
     95), then assistant to Chandrakant Sangani 
     10(1975-6) and to Tahir Hussain. His début is a 
     11Gujarati remake of Dada Kondke’s 
     12spectacularly successful lowbrow Marathi 
     13comedy, Pandu Havaldar (1975). 80s work 
     14mainly in mid-budget Hindi masala films, 
     15introducing this formula into Gujarati and 
     16achieving a broader acceptance and larger 
     17budgets. Marte Dam Tak, featuring the senior 
     18star Raaj Kumar alongside Govinda, made him 
     19one of the best-known vendetta action 
     20directors. He then yoked this genre 
     21successfully to a highly rhetorical story about 
     22nationalism to make the biggest Hindi hit of 
     231992, Tiranga, getting Raaj Kumar to act with 
     24the younger character actor, Nana Patekar.
