Redefined Alphabets in Indian Cinema - Big B - 70th Birthday!! (2012)

The man who reinvented the order of the alphabets..ABC.. 

he him self a corporate entity for the movie moguls of World in General and India In particular.  

He enthralled all of the movie buffs in his own way..It is unethical, inhuman or a shameful act to list of top ten movies of him.  Each and every movie is a gem in its own way.  Just to satisfy my ego, am listing out few of his best movies in my opinion which stands tall all the way.

1. Kaala Patthar

The intensity filled eyes, very less and less dialogues  the scene where he catch holds of the knife with the sharp edge, and looks deep in the villain eyes..a seriously wonderful intensity filled performance of AB.

2. Anand

The star about to explode, the serious acting, the dialogue delivery, no no star image..all this almost gave a head to head fight with Rajesh Khanna. 

3. Sharaabhi

He is the one who almost redefined drunken act on the screen. and this movie has out and out sharabhi act through out the movie.  The dance sequence with Jayapradha where he keeps on banging that paayal with effective involvement and the interrupted singing in the same sequence just spectacular. The fight with sharabhi people a new kind.

4. Muqaddar ka Sikandar

Jugal bandhi song with Rekha is just awesome. The "tere bhi na bhi kya jeena.." song acting, and last fight all are too good.

5. Main azaad hoon

No heroism, no image..a plain but powerful movie.  Worth watching many times.  Shabhana Azmi powerful performance, and Big B towering performance makes this as a gem. How the media are making fool of the public nicely portrayed in this movie.

6. Aankhen

You write a script..and AB with out any hassles he will get in to the skin.  Here playing a typical cranky role..what a performance from him.

7. Abhimaan

How ego can destory the nice family, his brooding eyes, egoistic expression, the frustration everything comes in this great movie.

8. Bombay to Goa

Ekdum raw inhibition, no star giri...

9. Agneepath

There is no actor who can repeat his act of Vijay Deenanath there any?..a master piece performance from the master.

10. Namak Haraam

Again friendship, frustration, revenge, sacrifice everything comes in a package in this movie.

There are other movies to which didn't appeared in the listed out movies ..Sholay, Deewaar, Laawaris, Don, Shaan, Zanjeer...and so many..But my personal best are listed above.

Few picks from his movies are

1. Comic timing in Chupke Chupke
2. Dialogues in Deewar
3. Towering performance in Kabhi Kabhi
4. Fire with Fire in Trishul
5. Famous mirror acting in Amar Akbar Anthony
6. Famous Pan dance in Don
7. Mere Angaane mein dance in Lawaris
8. Intensity role in Zanjeer
9. Action, Drama, Humor in Sholay
10. Super dance for Apni to jaise taise in Lawwaris and Pagha Namak Halaal

many more endless....

He is celebrating 70th Birthday..a milestone in its own way in the hindu tradition.  

The man who is stepping in to 70th year..but has a enthusiasm of a teenager.  

Common friends let us wish the Emperor of Indian Cinema's Magical Kingdom The Amitabh Bachhan..

a special birthday..

Happy Birthday to God of Indian Cinema....Amitabh Bachhan!!!


  1. I love him. long live Big B.

    Thanks for nice bunch of selective movies. He has tried to over come his image always.

    Even I love his movies of recent year. My favorite is virudh. He simply acts from his eyes.

    Love u Bachan saab.

  2. Great blog Sri. And nice compilation. Except for Main Azaad Hoon, I've seen all these movies and agree with your perception. He's a person who made "angry" cool. He's one who's redfined "drinking" as you put it. He's one who made "simplicity" (Anand) to shine. And Ankhen was perhaps his last "best" movie(I haven't seen Paa so cant comment on it).

    he has spoilt his image in the later stages of his actor career with movies like Nishabd and Aag (thanks to RGV) and Jhoom Barabar Jhoom and Lal Badhsah and many such idiotic and meaningless Bollywood trash.

    For his own sake, he should stop working in movies now. Or it will be another case of the SRT.

  3. Thank you Badari Sir. He is a legend in his own terms. A total unconventional hero, but the impact is huge huge.

  4. Thank you Prashanth. I love his old movies than the new movies of him. But his energy level to act in those kind of new movies is appreciable though. Yes as you said it is high time he stops working in bakwaas movies instead concentrate on powerful character roles which can do wonders for him. Ha SRT flies everywhere!!!
