Bomi Dotiwala Hindi Actor

Bomi Dotiwala

Bomi Dotiwala is a veteran in the Hindi film industry where he played the character of Pappa in Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. He also acted in Lage Raho Munnabhai and Black. His fun-filled roles in all these films are like a breath of fresh air to people from all generations. His energy and sense of humor never diminished even at the age of eighty, when most adults are bedridden or dead. He is a strong and independent man for his age, always making people smile. He entertained people with his jokes even in a wheelchair, and he appeared on the show Laughter in the House 2. Along with many artistes, he gave a great performance and sang like a star, as described by Vikram Phukan. He acted in Bumper Draw in 2015 along with new actors like Aabhishek Ingale, Hrishikesh Joshi, and Nagnath Askulka. He was able to show his humorous side to the world, and he got rave reviews for his acting. But the most notable work of his career would be Teaspoon, where he played the role of a paralytic father-in-law. The short film, shot in 2015, turned out to be an award winning, critically reclaimed film. It garnered more than two million views on YouTube. Bomi uses a teaspoon to summon the daughter-in-law whenever he needs help. But this angers her to an extent that she manhandles the old man. She doesn’t realise that this would kill him, and when it did, she went into a state of mental agony. Kavita never gets the courage to tell her husband that she was the cause for the old man’s death. Instead, every time she hears the tapping of a spoon, her father-in-law comes to her mind and haunts her. Even though Bomi didn’t do much acting in this film, he was a natural and won the audience’s hearts. This flick was directed by Aban Bharucha Deohans, licensed by Youtube. Bomi will do more films after this, if his strength and health permit. A veteran’s performances remain the most memorable.

Ram Sethi

Ram P. Sethi aka Pyare Lal is an Indian actor who is mostly known for his supporting roles in Hindi films like Namak Halaal, Chameli Ki Shaadi, PK, etc. Born on 31st August 1938, Ram grew up in Delhi in a big Punjabi family with seven brothers and a sister. Having been influenced by his brother who worked in the theater, he left home in 1962 to try acting in films in Mumbai. He was supported in this decision by his father, who reportedly gave him 150 rupees as an allowance to be used for six months. Unfortunately, he did not find much success and returned to Delhi a year later. However, not the one to give up, he came back to Mumbai in 1964 and met filmmaker Ravi Tandon (father of actress Raveena Tandon). Tandon was not making any movies at that point but assured Ram that as soon as he could find a role for him, he would call him. With this assurance, Ram went back to Delhi. True to his word, Tandon called Ram in 1968, and thus, Ram Sethi began his acting career. He featured in the super hit Zanjeer in the role of a constable. He soon joined the director of the movie Prakash Mehra as his right-hand man. The collaboration lasted for over 20 years, and this gave Ram a chance to work with Amitabh Bachchan, Rekha, Shashi Kapoor, Jeetendra, Smita Patil, Parveen Babi, Amjad Khan, etc. He also served as an associate director Children Film's Society on Black Mountain, an Indo-Russian movie. He also assisted Prakash Mehra in several directorial ventures. He went to appear in many classic films including Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Laawaris, Kaalia, Yaarana, Namak Halal, Chameli Ki Shaadi, Do Aur Do Paanch, Judwaa, etc. During his struggling days when he did not own a house in Mumbai, he used to live with Ishan Arya, a renowned cameraman, and actress Shabana Azmi's cousin. He became a director in his own right when he directed Ghungroo in the 80's. However, he did not pursue it further but remained involved in films nevertheless. He was slated to direct a movie in 1993, but the film was dropped as a result of Bombay riots. He went on to work with documentary directors Satyendra Goel, G R Sethi, and S Sukhdev. At the age of 73, he appeared in an advertisement for Hero Maestro Scooter. The ad became popular and brought Ram back into the spotlight after a short hiatus. As a result, famous director Rajkumar Hirani called him up for a supporting role in his 2014 blockbuster. PK. Ram lives in Mumbai with his wife. He has two sons, the younger of whom lives in Australia. Ram's career spans over 46 years and 100 films.
