One of the best works of Dharmendra and Meena kumari. It is a shame that Dharmendra never received a Film fare award. Phool aur pathar is evident that he could meet the class and skill level of a legend Meena Kumari. Dharmendra starred in Number of critically acclaimed and box office successes and he was one of top actors at par with some of industry's legends. however he is never respected the same way and reduced to an action star. Dharmendra is a living legend, handsome as ever, and one of the best industry has seen.
