Gratuitous screencaps: Shaque (1976)

I'm still a couple of reviews behind at Filmi Geek so it will be some time before I get around to writing about Shaque. But there's no reason to make you wait for the harvest of screencaps!

Shaque was, I believe, Shabana Azmi's first move with Vinod Khanna, and it shows the great potential of the pairing: Vinod is manly yet sensitive, and he matches appealingly with Shabana's slightly edgy femininity. Here, though, Shabana is very, very young, and the character is quite weak and naive. It's not her best character ever, but at this early stage in her career I think that's forgiveable.

At any rate, there are some nice visuals in the film, as well as lots of cuddling between Shabana and Vinod. As to the latter, Shaque includes a very steamy scene between the two of them, brief (and interrupted by the police!) but well worth waiting for. Enjoy the screencaps.
