Jaane bhi do yaaron

Kundan Shah's Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron went on to be considered one of the best comedy films of all time


Paar, released in 1984, featured Om Puri, Naseeruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi, three stars who'd go on to define alternative cinema of the 80s


Om Puri had a minor role in Richard Attenborough's Gandhi, but the Oscar-winning movie gave him much international acclaim


Considered one of the best cop films made in India, Ardh Satya was the first time audiences sat up and took notice of Om Puri's acting talents


Om Puri received a National Award for his role as a farmer in Shyam Benegal's Arohan


Om Puri played a tribesman accused of murdering his wife in Aakrosh


Om Puri truly reserved his best works for Govind Nihalani. Tamas, based on a book by Bhisham Sahni, was no different.
