Yesterday I read one article on rediff Gaon ki Goris from Bollywood, featuring Indian actresses in the role of a village girl. The article was more or less like a photo gallery with sexy pose of recently popular movies like Guru, Lagaan, Malamaal Weekly etc. But they completely missed out the magic of gaon ki goris in old bollywood movies. Today I have compiled some of old Bollywood movies having gaon ki gori. In this I have included Hema Malini, Mandakini, Vyjayanthimala, Madhuri Dixit, Gracy Singh and Sharmila Tagore.
Hema Malini (Basanti in Sholay) –Basanti is a feisty, talkative young woman who makes her living driving a horse-cart. Her aunt is reluctant to let Veeru marry her niece but after a solid acting performance of Dharmendra (Veeru) on the top of water tank she finally agreed for their marriage.
Mandakini (Ganga in Ram Teri Ganga Maili) — Her sex appeal and breast feeding to a child made this movie one of the greatest blockbusters of Bollywood.
Vyjayanthimala (Naya Daur) — She supports Dilip Kumar in the war between man and machine.
Gracy Singh (Gauri in Lagaan) — A possessive, sympathetic and traditional girl who falls in love with Bhuvan, the main character of the movie.
Madhuri Dixit (Ram Lakhan) — A memorable movie for Madhuri as a gaon ki gori. Beautiful sets, dance numbers, emotional scenes helped her to establish her position as a successful actress in Bollywood.
Sharmila Tagore (Champa in Kashmir ki Kali) — For the first time, a Kashmiri girl won the heart of millions of Bollywood fans.
