Dharam Veer | Manmohan Desai | Anupama Chopra | Film Companion Flashback

40 years ago, before Baahubali, Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean, there was Dharam Veer. It’s too much fun. Dharam Veer has the innocence of a children’s story. As the madcap plot unfolds, you can almost sense the director’s glee at having so many different toys to play with – this includes a battle at sea in the climax.

Dharam Veer released in 1977 and was one of the four hits Manmohan Desai had that year. The others were Amar Akbar Anthony, Chacha Bhatija and Parvarish.
