The film, known for its witty dialogues and brilliant performances, showcases the couple’s ability to effortlessly blend romance with humor.
  2. Devar (1966)In the year that Anupama was released, another impactful drama, directed by Mohan Segal and based on Bangla literature, emerged. Similar to Anupama, Devar also delved into the theme of unexpressed and suppressed love. Dharmendra portrayed Shramila’s brother-in-law, quietly harboring affection for her as he witnessed her endure a troubled marriage. This film, ahead of its time, is etched in memory, thanks to composer Roshan’s enchanting melodies such as Baharon Ne Mera Chaman Lutkar and Guzra Zamana Bachpan Ka, sung by Mukesh.
  3. Yakeen (1969)Yakeen is a poignant love story directed by Brij Sadanah, where the two legendary stars play a couple whose love is put to the test by unforeseen circumstances. The film beautifully captures the essence of trust and resilience in relationships, and the lead pair’s chemistry shines through in every frame.

  4. Mere Hamdam Mere Dost (1968)Directed by Amar Kumar, this romantic drama features Sharmila Tagore and Dharmendra in roles that explore the complexities of love and friendship. The film’s soulful music and heartfelt performances by the lead actors make it a memorable watch. The palpable on-screen chemistry between Sharmila and Dharmendra elevates the emotional quotient of the movie.
  5. Satyakam (1969)Hailed by many as Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s finest work and unquestionably Dharmendra’s most outstanding portrayal, the film showcases Dharmendra’s authentic performance as Satyapriya, whose idealism becomes the catalyst for the destruction of both himself and his family. Over time, Dharmendra’s naturalistic acting has proven resilient to the passage of years. Sharmila, portraying his supportive wife, serves as the ideal complement to his performance.
