Seeta Aur Geeta
In this film Hemaji played a double role. She essayed the titular roles of Seeta – a naïve and simple girl, and Geeta – a totally outspoken and full of life girl, with the ease of pro.
Here the Dream Girl played a carriage owner who lives in Ramgarh with her mausi and horse Dhannu. She was amazing in the entire movie but her dance when captured by Gabbar Singh and his men is the cherry on the cake.
Do we need to say anything about her performance – acting and dancing in this movie?
The Burning Train
In this film, Hema played a happy go lucky girl who falls in love with an engineer but later breaks off with him when she comes cross an accident that makes her unable to walk thereafter.
Satte Pe Satta
We loved her in this film cause she was able to keep herself relevant even after she was surrounded by 7 male actors – actually make that 8, Amitabh Bachchan had a double role in the film.
She may have been under the shadow of Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha and Rishi Kapoor in this film but we still got to see her on-screen enough to make this one her most amazing performances till date. Hema Malini played a singer in this film.
In this 2003 film, Hema essayed the role a wife who is separated from her husband when their kids cannot take care of both parents together. The anguish and loneliness she feels is sure to bring tears to your eyes.
