Farishtey - Super star as
During the release of Roja, every one was
enthusiastic to watch the scene, when Arvindaswamy was hastening to
save the National Flag from the infiltrator who tries to put on
fire. It is still amazing why super star doesn’t deliver patriotic
dialogues or starts to save the country with having a A.K.47 or
fantasy…in Tamil films.
However, he did a patriotic role once in Hindi film – Farishtey,
with Vinoth Kanna & Dharmendra, released in
the beginning of 1991 when “Dharmadurai” was going on successfully
in the theatres of Tamil Nadu.
I think, this film is not yet dubbed in Tamil, that’s why most of
the fans are not aware of patriotic avatar
of Super Star. In this film he tries to host the national flag in a
village controlled by the villain group and was killed by the
villain. In the mean time, he sings one patriotic song also with
having National Flag in his hand. Though there is no logic, his
characterization, of course not established in Tamil...
One more interesting thing in this film, during the introduction
scene, he introduces himself as a “Block
Hero” which is quite unusual in Bollywood. If you get chance to see
“Farishte” – watch just to enjoy the patriotic Rajni!
