Amitabh Bachchan turns 74 today! He’s one of those very few superstars for whom age is just a number. In a career that spans over 47 years, Mr. Bachchan has acted in dozens of movies and managed to leave audience speechless every time. Each movie that he acted in was a treat to watch, and it was tough for us to shortlist just five best movies. We’ve tried our best to select top 5 movies of Amitabh Bachchan which turned him into the biggest superstar of Bollywood. Take a look-
The first of top 5 movies of Amitabh Bachchan is Zanzeer. It was his first step towards becoming a superstar. His character of Inspector Vijay created an instant buzz in the industry. As a result, the movie earned a total of 60 million INR and Bachchan won the love of lakhs of Indians.
After five years of Zanzeer release, Amitabh Bachchan did another crowd puller that eventually became one of the biggest hits of that era. Even after all these years, nobody can name any actor else who would’ve played Don’t character better than Big B.
Who can forget Vijay Deenanath Chauhan, the angry young man of Agneepath? From body language to dialogue delivery, he took the acting standards to all new heights in Agneepath. No matter if you’re 40-year old or 25, as long as you love watching movies, give it a shot.
In Baghban, he portrayed the role of Raj Malhotra, a father who did everything possible to keep his children happy and thought they would treat him well after his retirement. However, his hopes shattered when his sons asked him to separate from his wife so that they didn’t have to spend much on their monthly expenses. The movie is all about how he dealt with the situation without giving up his pride.
“NO MEANS NO.” You all remember this dialogue from Pink. Although the movie was related to women issues, the way Amitabh played the character of Deepak Sehgal, a retired lawyer suffering from bipolar disorder, was just unbelievable. Pink will definitely go down in history as one of Amitabh Bachchan’s his best movies.
Apart from the names mentioned in this list of top 5 movies, Amitabh Bachchan has done many other great films like Deewaar, Sharaabi, Chini Kum, Mohabbatein, Black, Abhiman, Anand, Sholay, Amar Akbar Anthony, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Silsila, Paa… and many more. If we go deep, the list will never end. That’s the kind of standards he’s set for himself.
On the eve of Amitabh Bachchan’s 74th Birthday, we wish him good health and a long life. Hope he’ll continue to set new acting standards in the coming years.
