Without a doubt, the great discovery of Amitabh Bacchan.
The biggest movie of his career and Jay has become immortal.
This was the movie when the rising star Amitabh played second fiddle to the setting star Rajesh Khanna.
Vijay Dinanath Chouhan is still remembered more than the movie.
The angry young man turned a householder. This was the first time he expressed more through his emotions rather than words.
Pitted against the versatile Sanjeev Kumar, audience died with pleasure watching the duo together.
Ohh yes. The funny streak and the combination with Dharmendra. Sheer brilliance.
The passionate and stylish lover. No one presented Amitabh in a way Yash Chopra did. Those turtle necks were awesome.
The big metamorphosis. Narayan Shankar showed us that Amitabh has grown old – Gracefully.
One cannot find such an unconventional and extraordinary teacher anywhere else. This was an epitome of the acting prowess.
Bunty aur Babli
Again tickling the funny bone, he proved why he is the father of Abhishek Bacchan while dancing to the tunes of Kajrare.
He made his audience Nishabd (Speechless) Again a brilliant act where expressions were more effective than words.
Simply innocent magic. No other words.
No one could pull off the eccentric Bengali father with such conviction. Listen to his single dialogue – “Aey Piku. Flush me paani nahi haay” and you know what I mean.
When Amitabh Bacchan tells you what is the significance of “NO” the whole world listens.
