Amitabh Bachchan as Dr Banerjee or rather ‘Babumoshai’, as Rajesh Khanna’s character called him, did a wonderful job. It can be said that this role was the first step of him becoming a superstar.
The brilliance of Sholay is a well-known fact and Amitabh’s portrayal of Jai was a marvelous effort. You can try but you won’t be able to find a single flaw in this classic movie.
3. Chupke Chupke
Hrishikesh Mukherjee showed his genius with Chupke Chupke. Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bhaduri looked great together and his performance stands out amongst some of the greatest names of the 70’s.
Black is India’s version of the Helen Keller story and Amitabh Bachchan is the teacher in it. From the moment he comes on screen, he mesmerizes you. And he holds you till the last frame of the movie. One of his best performances, not to forget a great one from Rani Mukherji too.
To say that Amitabh has acted really well in Deewaar is not enough, he did more than that. He lived the character of Vijay and made it come alive in the best possible way for us.
Another great performance by Amitabh Bachchan. He played a small but a prominent role in Lakshya as Colonel Sunil Damle. His eyes and silence in the movie say a lot more than words.
Don is one of those blockbusters of 70’s that launched Amitabh Bachchan into the superstar orbit. If haven’t watched this old classic yet, watch it just to see the superstar Amitabh as Don and those impeccable suits of him!
Amitabh Bachchan was elegant, stylish and serious as the popular singer Subir Kumar in Abhimaan. He seems tailor-made for such roles, I personally like him better in these kind of roles. Also, the envious chemistry between him and Jaya Bhaduri did wonders for the movie.
Sarkar is India’s answer to The Godfather in some ways. Amitabh Bachchan excels as Subhas Nagre with that piercing and intense gaze of his. No one could have played it better than him.
The biggest strength of Shakti is neither the screenplay nor the characters but the power-packed performances of the lead actors Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan playing the father-son duo. Both of them have delivered towering performances in the movie.
11. Pink (New addition) (IMDb: 8.7)
Amitabh Bachchan literally nailed it with as a retired lawyer who makes a comeback to fight a case for three girls facing serious charges.
