Here is Top Bollywood Movies of Amitabh Bachchan’s Movies of All Time.
Amitabh Bachchan is the Indian Cinema’s first Angry Young Man. It is well known that Amitabh Bachchan’s film career started with Saat Hindustani. However, He had, in fact, made his actual debut prior to that as a narrator in Bhuvan Shome, an award-winning film my Mrinal Sen in 1969. He is Bollywood’s icon has always shown tremendous resilience – emerging stronger and more successful from each downfall – rejuvenating himself every time. He is also honored with Padmashree and Padmabhushan and got the Filmfare award 17 out of 45 times of nomination. He hosted the famous Television show “Kaun Banega Crorepati”.
Sholay is a 1975 Indian Hindi-language action-adventure film, directed by Ramesh Sippy, produced by his father G. P. Sippy, and written by Salim-Javed. The film follows two criminals, Veeru and Jai (played by Dharmendra and Amitabh Bachchan), hired by a retired police officer (Sanjeev Kumar) to capture the ruthless dacoit Gabbar Singh(Amjad Khan). Hema Malini and Jaya Bhaduri also star, as Veeru and Jai’s love interests.
I can just imagine the countless number of complaints we would be getting from Amitabh fans if Sholay (one of India’s greatest films ever) was not included in this list. Sholay is honestly one of the most entertaining and adrenaline-fueled films you will see in Bollywood! It acquired the designation of being the highest-grossing film ever at the time of its release. Yet Amitabh was also very comedic in this film, especially when he thwarts Veeru’s attempts at wooing Basanti (Hema Malini).
Sholay is considered a classic and one of the best Indian films. It was ranked first in the British Film Institute’s 2002 poll of “Top 10 Indian Films” of all time. In 2005, the judges of the 50th annual Filmfare Awards named it the Best Film of 50 Years.
Anand (English: Bliss) is a 1971 Indian drama film co-written and directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. It stars Rajesh Khanna in the lead role with and supporting cast includes Amitabh Bachchan, Sumita Sanyal, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo. Khanna played the title role. The dialogues were written by Gulzar.
The film won several awards including the Filmfare award for best film in 1972. Although Anand really belongs to Rajesh Khanna for his tragic performance as a dying cancer patient, Amitabh also gave an equally memorable performance in this film. He plays the role of Bhaskar Banerjee, who is one of Anand’s (Khanna) doctors and he eventually becomes his confidant during his final months.
The Title of the ‘angry young man.’ Without giving too much away, the film is based on a police officer named Vijay (Amitabh) who is on a mission to end the crimes of the vindictive ‘goonda’ (hooligan) Teja (Ajit Khan), who is responsible for selling poisoned goods to locals, who eventually die from it as a result. Zanjeer was a ground-breaking moment for Hindi cinema. For decades the audience had seen male protagonists in largely romantic roles.
Deewaar (The Wall) is a 1975 Indian crime drama film, directed by Yash Chopra, written by Salim-Javed, and starring Amitabh Bachchan and Shashi Kapoor. It is a crime drama which focuses on two brothers who follow two different paths in life. Ravi (Shashi Kapoor) is the law abiding and benevolent police officer, whereas his brother Vijay (Amitabh) turns to crime and smuggling in order to acquire wealth and status
Kabhie Kabhie (1976)
Kabhi Kabhie is a 1976 Indian Hindi romantic drama film, produced and directed by Yash Chopra, and starring an ensemble cast of Amitabh Bachchan. Just after he had wowed the audiences with his aggressive roles in Deewaar and Sholay, Amitabh displayed a completely alternative side to him by playing a romantic character in Yash Chopra’s classic Kabhi Kabhie. In this film, Amitabh enacts the role of a poet named Amit who falls in love with Pooja (Rakhee Gulzar). They both drift apart as Pooja is duty-bound to marry Vijay (Shashi Kapoor) due to her parents’ wishes. They both cross paths again when there is a generation change and their children are now the ones taken aback by the power of love. You will have to watch this eternal classic to see for yourselves the events which transpire and how Vijay reacts when he uncovers his wife’s previous relationship.
Don is a 1978 Indian Hindi action film produced by Nariman Irani and directed by Chandra Barot, with music by Kalyanji Anandji and lyrics by Anjaan. Bachchan starrer titled Don (1978) is considered by many to be one of his most significant films and it has become a classic hit ever since its release. Yet since quite a few action films with Amitabh as the leading man have already been included on this list, we felt this would restrict us from strongly recommending films where he has exemplified variety as an actor
Agneepath is a 1990 Indian crime drama film directed by Mukul Anand. It stars Amitabh Bachchan as the protagonist Vijay Deenanath Chauhan. Agneepath has grown a strong cult film over the years. Amitabh Bachchan received his first National Film Award for Best Actor at the 38th National Film Awards for his performance. Mithun Chakraborty received the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. The film, despite being the tenth highest-grosser of 1990, had collections way below its high budget.

Amitabh Bachchan’s Make-Up In ‘PAA’ is remarkable! Paa is a 2009 Indian comedy-drama Vidya Balan. The film is based on a rare genetic condition known as progeriaand places emphasis on a father-son relationship.

Amitabh Bachchan received his third National Film Award for Best Actor at the 57th National Film Awards for his performance and his fifth Filmfare Best Actor Award and Vidya Balan got her first Filmfare Best Actress Award.
Amar Akbar Anthony (1977)
An awesome movie in every sense – drama, emotion, comedy, romance, action, national integration, justice is all present in one movie. Three brothers are separated and united after many years – one is brought up by a Hindu, another by a Muslim and the last Amitabh Bachchan, by a Christian.The song Humko Tumse Ho Gaya Hai is unique for bringing together four of the biggest singing stars of the time – Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi and Mukesh. They never sang together before or after.
Muqaddar Ka Sikandar (1978)
Muqaddar Ka Sikandar is a must see film if you cannot get enough of Amitabh as Bollywood’s ultimate action hero! It has an intense storyline, spellbinding music and an excellent performance by Amitabh which makes him the showstopper of this film. However, it is a film which focuses on the dramatic events affecting Sikandar (Amitabh), the ups and downs of his life, as well as his love for his childhood sweetheart Kaamna (Rakhee Gulzar) and his various encounters with Zohra the courtesan (Rekha). Muqaddar Ka Sikandar transformed into a blockbuster hit at the time of its release.
Black was a revolutionary moment for Hindi Cinema. Amitabh wowed the critics and the audiences again with his ground-breaking performance as a senior character in Black. The film is based on a man named Debraj Sahai (Amitabh) who becomes the teacher of a deaf-blind girl named Michelle McNally (played by Ayesha Kapoor as the young Michelle and Rani Mukerji as the older Michelle). As Debraj gets older, he begins to develop Alzheimer’s disease. Amitabh showed his dramatic side like never before in this film and no doubt you will find his, as well as Rani’s and Ayesha’s characters very moving to watch. Amitabh won both the Filmfare Best Actor Award and Best Actor (Critics) Award for his strongly commendable performance in this film.
