Randhir Kapoor is considered to be a veteran when it comes to playing different roles in different genres. There is so much more to him than the rumbustious ho-ho-ho blustering bumpkin’s image. Thus, we have compiled a list of all the evergreen films from the veteran highlighting his versatile performance.
1. Kal Aaj Aur Kal (1971)
This was Randhir’s debut as an actor and director, and he was promising. The film deals with the theme of the generation gap with a certain amount of wisecracking wisdom. Randhir delivered a solid performance living up to his name.
2. Raampur Ka Lakshman (1972)
A year after his debut Randhir Kapoor featured in Manmohan Desai’s potboiler a superhit with chartbuster songs composed by Rahul Dev Burman for Randhir to sing: ‘Raampur Ka Vasi Hoon Main Laxman Mera Naam’ and ‘Ghum Hai Kissike Pyar Mein’ being the two biggest hits. Randhir had his pal Rekha for a company in this film. His performance was acclaimed by the audience and critics as well.
3. Humrahi (1974)
One of the most under-estimated films of Randhir’s career Hamrahi directed by Anand Sagar was a load of fun and a source of inspiration for Priyadarshan’s Hera Pheri. Known for his comic virtuosity, Randhir got tit for tat from the spontaneous Tanuja.
4. Jawani Diwani (1972)
Randhir Kapoor shared a very warm and close bonding with filmmaker Ramesh Behl while working for the film Jawani Diwani. Although the film did not meet the expectations, Randhir's performance as Vijay Anand was sensational.
