One of the more easily recognizable figures on the Hindi film screen. There are two hallmark identifications, with which we can easily pick out Asit Sen (the actor). The first one is his size.

When “Fakeera” (1976) was released, I pooh poohed it as a B grade movie. Even the reviews of this movie in magazines seemed to bear me out that the movie was no great shakes.

“Ham Sab Chor Hain” (1955) is a movie of historical significance because here one can see many would be legends in action during their earlier days. For instance, it was one of the first movies as a music director for O P Nayyar. It is in movies like this that he began to groom Asha Bhonsle and gave her voice an identity.
