Many times, I will watch a movie just for a star appearing in a brief cameo. Here are my top 5, in no particular order.
#1- Ijazat: Shashi Kapoor.
The first one that comes to my mind the minute I think of great Bolly cameos. He looks gorgeous, he speaks volumes in a 1 sentence and with those gorgeous eyes.
#2- Teesri Manzil: KN Singh
Such a brief visit, but he looked like he was really having fun. Salman's dad also shows up for a bit.
#3- Gumnaam (1965): Helen
Who can forget "Kitty Kelly" and her purple and white swim suit, so gracefully worn and so brightly done? Just wish (as always) that she had stuck around a bit longer...
#4- Dharavi: Madhuri Dixit
She is Om Puri's fantasy- and offers welcome respite both for him and the viewer from the harsh realities of the surrounding Dharavi, that threatens to swollow us into its grime along w/ Om.
#5- Welcome to Sajjanpur : Divya Dutta and Ila Arun
They both have really brief roles, and are amazingly effective, funny and high impact. Both lovely, both talent powerhouses.
Alright now, what are your favs?
