FACES: MUMTAZ

I am making up for lost time, I suppose... this is my second 'Faces' post (the first was about Dharam and Sharmila), and I just adore this woman's face. As Dustedoff put it, I love everything about Mumtaz. Adorable and sexy at the same time. Great smile, cute nose, beautiful eyes. A fabulous dancer. So lushly gorgeous. And there is something so... alive and expressive about her face. I also love the spirit, feistiness and fun she brought to a lot of her characters. Such a beautiful woman....

Hello DG,

Yes I remember seeing her recently in Khandan, but I was so (how shall I put it) busy looking at Nutan, I didn't really take notice of her enough. But feisty she was, and your post makes me think I'll have to see more of her!
cheers

Beautiful, beautiful. Especially the last two screen caps.

Have you seen Humraaz and Aadmi aur Insaan? Mumtaz is especially gorgeous in those.

A very beautiful woman indeed. She somehow reminds me a little of the actress Charlize Theron though (especially in the 2nd and 14th pictures).

yves: Nutan was very beautiful indeed (such a lovely serenity about her face), so I can definitely understand all your attention being on her! In the early days of her career, Mumtaz played a lot of supporting characters... she was second-banana to Nutan, Sharmila Tagore, Mala Sinha etc in quite a few films, and she seems to have always done a really good job.

dustedoff: Haven't seen either one yet, have been trying to get my hands on 'Aadmi Aur Insaan' in particular. Hopefully someday soon...

shell: I can definitely see the resemblance! Especially in the 14th...

I pyar Mumtaz too, i fell in love with her in khilona, its the film that got her a filmfare best actress award. Watch that if you can, this was the song that started the craze and perhaps Mumtaz at her dancing best

Mumu rules over everything. Another of her considerable skills was that she made a great "pair" with just about every hero she acted with (which was most of them!)...she always made the romance sparkle.
