Sanjeev Kumar - VIII

3. Anamika (1973) directed by Raghunath Jhalani and starring Jaya Bhaduri, Iftekhar and A. K. Hangal. Music by R. D. Burman was a big hit and so was the movie.

4. Faraar (1973) directed by Shankar Mukherjee and had Amitabh Bachchan and Sharmila Tagore as his co-stars. This movie is an off-beat film and had a very interesting story line. Amitabh Bachchan has also given an good performance in the role of a murderer hiding in the house of a police officer (played by Sanjeev Kumar). However, police officer's wife has been Amitabh's girlfriend before her marriage. Sanjeev Kumar gave a great performance in the role of a helpless police officer who cannot take hold of a criminal because his son is his hostage. Sharmila Tagore also acted very well in the role of a woman caught between her husband and her ex-lover.

5. Naya Din Nayee Raat (1974) directed by A. Bhimji was quite an experimental film. Sanjeev Kumar played nine different characters in the film. Jaya Bhaduri was his co-star in the film. This film was a path-breaking film in the career of Sanjeev Kumar.
