| Dharmendra's comeback film at the time
Hukumat was released in the year 1987 and was the first film that brought dharmendra and director Anil Sharma together.The duo went on to perform several successful films together such as Elan-e-Jung,Tahalka, Farishtay and most recently Apne.Dharmendra proved to be the priceless jewel for anil sharma as all of their films together were resounding Successes.Before the release of Hukumat,dharmendra was brimming from an unsuccessful spell at the time based on box-office collections.Despite starring in critically-acclaimed and extremely entertaining movies like Ghulami, Sitamgar, Sultanat, surprisingly hits kept eluding dharmendra which was quite unusual as he was still one of the top-rated and bankable stars, even at 50 plus.But then came the year 1987,where dharmendra achieved a remarkable feat.he showed what it takes to be able to bounce back from adversity.8 of his films that released that year where outstanding successes and he was the only artist that boasted of the highest amounts of outright hit cementing his status as a Box-office Legend.He was the Stand-out star of that year.The younger stars(Anil,jackie,Sunny, Govinda)could not even boast of 2 Hits to their credits,whereas Dharmendra gave 4 Super-hits (Hukumat,Aag hi Aag,Loha and Insaaniyat ke Dushman).Mithun at the time, had only Watan Ke rakhwale which incidentally featured none other than dharmendra(in a dynamic appearance) who was critical to the film's success.Even the Big B could not deliver a single hit that year.Hukumat went on to become the biggest hit of 1987 and even made twice the amount that the much hyped Mr India was the first ever hit for director Anil Sharma.The film was celebrated at the 2003 Zee cine awards hosted by Anil Kappoor as one of the greatest hits of Indian cinema.The film is a winner all the way,it had great songs, powerful Dialogue delivery,excellent cinematography, and most importantly Dharmendra.This will surely rank as one of his best films ever.His mannerisms, anger, charisma, Machoism, Emotions,powerful delivery and ingenuity are all conveyed excellently in a full blend.His pairing with Rati is the icing on the cake.It was well received by the Indian audience.They are so convincing and fantastic together.The Brief duet picturised on them was exceptional.Sadashiv is a one-man treat and he is truly one of India's greatest villain.Watch this one for Dharmendra, Hindi cinema's Dynamic Maestro.
