Best of Amitabh Bachchan from the decade
We wonder if there is anyone in Bollywood, more loved than sir Bachchan, our Angry Young Man, the Big B and the official Paa. Born on 11 October 1942, he has been an amazing actor, one of the most loved anchors and a great producer. Starting his career as a narrator in 1968’s Bhuvan Shome by Mrinal Sen, his first acting role was in Saat Hindustani which didn’t come out very well. Later, he gained popularity with films like Zanjeer, Deewar and Sholay and became the official Angry Young Man for all. Well, this was just his early career. He has a legacy five decades in the film industry and it would be impossible to appreciate his work in one write up.
So, here we have collected his best works of this decade and no wonder, his spark has always been the same.
Gulab Sitaboo, the recent release of 2020 has been among the most popular one too because it has to be. The stunning trailer itself was a reflection of the fantastic acting of Bachchan, people can expect to see. While Ayushmann is any way at his best with him. Bachchan plays the role of Mirza, a Bollywood character that no one has witnessed so far. He plays a 78-year-old man and throughout the film, the character development of him, turning into a greedy man is worth watching.
Badla is one of the most underrated films of the decade and perhaps one of the most underrated performances of Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh is the face, Badal Gupta, of the imposter character of Rani’s Husband. He is playing the role of a lawyer and what a mindblowing performance he gave there. Badla being a thriller, Amitabh was the person who managed to pull that thrill off along with Tapsee’s dual character.
‘No means No’ when we say this sentence, we often go back to the court scene and Amitabh Bachchan’s speech saying No means No. Saying no is a complete sentence and once, a girl says so, it means No. It means refusal. It was a performance where many must-have clapped or might have cried and that’s what his magic is.
And here comes the Bhashkor Banarjee with one fixed problem, Constipation. Again, a Srujit Circar film and again, a beauty of it’s kind. A relation between a young working daughter and an ageing father, all-put together with the humour and emotions. And, all of it is so natural that we can see a relation with our parents building up in the conversations of Piku and Bhashkor.
Prabhakar Anand aka Dr Anand, is the principal of STM College, fights to abide by the OBC reservation verdict of the Supreme Court. Overcoming through many challenges in this path, this makes another stunning performance by Amitabh and was the earliest of this decade.
With this, we wish Sir Bachchan, a very happy birthday and we hope to see more amazing performances from him as we will never be full of his charm and flawless acting.
