Stars may come and stars may go, but there is one fine gentleman who has put up a tent in Bollywood and has no plan to leave anytime soon. He is our very own angry young man, Amitabh Bachchan. At the age of 73, Big B seems to be as energetic as ever and with time his acting has only gotten better.
Big B’s recent movie, TE3N, released this Friday and we loved him so much. He played his character of John Biswas brilliantly and looked beyond perfection to portray a helpless granddad. Let us look at other spectacular characters played by Amitabh Bachchan which made his character seem too real to be fictional:
1. Pandit Onkar Nath Dhar in Wazir (2016)
Amitabh Bachchan won hearts with his portrayal of a wheel chair-bound chess master in this one. The feeble Panditji and his sharp mind left us amazed. We don’t think any actor other could have played this part better, delivered the dialogues with more gravity or looked any better.
2.Bhaskor Banerjee in Piku (2015)
Bhaskor Banerjee, a quarrelsome Bengali father suffering from severe constipation could not have been as entertaining as he was had it not been for Amitabh Bachchan. From Big B’s hair, accent, protruding belly, to his hearing aid and constipated face, everything was on point.
3.Meyer Wolfsheim in The Great Gatsby (2013)
A Jewish gangster Wolfsheim with an uncompromising attitude and a glorious charm, marked his Hollywood debut. A small yet impactful performance by Big B will always be remembered by the West.
4.Vijay Verma in Deewar (1975)
The rugged star of the underworld was brought to life by him. Deewar showed the world the true potential Bachchan had and also gave us the evergreen dialogue “Aaj mere paas bangla hai, gaadi hai, bank balance hai, kya hai tumhare paas?”
5.Vijay Deenanath Chauhan in Agneepath (1990)
When one says “Vijay Deenanath Chauhan”, Amitabh’s voice is automatically echoes in our heads. The badass fish that went on to kill the gigantic shark and became a cult classic. Amitabh’s looks and voice as Vijay was lauded by all.
6.Auro in Paa (2009)
Playing the role of a 12-year-old progeric child at the age of 67 is possible only for him. Big B won our hearts playing the innocent and bubbly Auro in Paa and made sure the audience believed the pain he lived through.
