Popularly known as the director Bapu, Sattiraju Lakshmi Narayana was a man of many talents. When he was already an established director in the Telugu film industry, he shifted to Hindi films with Hum Paanch (1980). This proved to be the start of a fruitful collaboration with Mithun Chakraborty, one that defined a significant moment in the careers of both. What made these films special, and why are they still remembered as some of Mithun Chakraborty’s best performances? Join Gautam Chintamani in the Cinemaazi Studio as he explores three of the standout films they worked in together—the Nasseeruddin Shah-Sanjeev Kumar starrer Hum Paanch, Pyari Behna (1985) featuring Padmini Kolhapure and the rare Mithun Chakraborty-Madhuri Dixit starrer Prem Pratigyaa (1989).
