Today is 68th anniversary of Ompuri.Known for his great acting Ompuri was a legendary actor. He didn't have the looks as most of the heroes have thats the reason he didn't get the lead roles in commercial films but he had his own niche. He worked in many of the art movies where his acting was appreciated.
I remember " Discovery of India" and Tamas serials in which he acted well and is remembered for it. In art movies like Machis, Ardhsatya, Aakrosh, Jane bhi do yaron he was great to watch. He also acted in comedy movies like Hera Feri, Singh is king, welcome and many others. He was a good comedian too.
He died last year.
What I feel is he didn't get that much of recognition which he deserved.
