It’s wonderful how Amitabh Bachchan’s movies have moulded the lives of the millions across the world. The kind of dedication and effort that he has put into his work is worth emulating. There have been hundreds if not thousands over the years who have tried to ape him, but there can be only one Big B!
Every time Mr Bachchan appears on the big screen or the television there is a certain aura that he carries with himself which makes us go Wow! Who doesn’t know the Bachchan with his body leaning slightly to the left, the right hand on the waist and the left hand pointing towards the listener? May it be his body language or his dialogue delivery; he has captured hearts all around the world. Such is his on screen personality that every Indian man dreams of having.
The greatness of Big B in Indian Cinema isn’t easy to put into words. All of this has only been possible with the hard work and commitment along with the struggle that he has been able to achieve and tackle. Bollywood never thought it would have a 6feet 2 inches tall actor playing romantic roles. But movies like Silsila, Kabhie Kabhie and Manzil proved everyone wrong.
Who doesn’t remember the words like ‘ Don ko pakadna mushkil hi nahi, namumkin hai’ or’Rishte mein toh hum tumhare baap hote hain, naam hai Shahenshah.’ The Senior Bachchan has taken dialogues and made them appear extraordinary on the screen just with his body language, emotions and deep, baritone voice. Amitabh Bachchan’s movies have created benchmarks for other actors and nobody in Indian Cinema has been able to match up to it.
Hundreds of fans can be seen waiting outside his residence just to catch a glimpse of their favourite actor. Nobody can miss a chance of having a photo clicked next to the superstar. Such is his fan base all around the globe that nobody has been able to beat or come close to. Movies like Agneepath, Deewar, Zanjeer, Sholay, Sharabi, Namak Halal and many more have been examples of the greatness of this superlative persona and the reasons behind his success.
It is not only his movies but also his presence on the small screen through ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’ that has made people fall in love with his personality all over again. Audiences would stay glued to the screen during each episode of KBC where Mr Bachchan appears on the screen greeting the viewers with words like Namaskar and bidding them goodbye by saying Shubh Ratri and Shabakher. All of this just makes the viewer’s long and tedious day end with a smile.
Some of the his critically acclaimed movies have been able to strike an emotional chord touching people’s hearts with his performance in movies like Black, Baghban, Waqt and many more. The emotions that he has bought through his work have made the viewers shed tears. The lessons that he has taught individuals through his on-screen exploits have been learning curve for them. Amitabh Bachchan’s movies and his struggles have been an inspiration for people all around the world. There is always an eagerness of watching the great Indian actor appear on the big screen. A person can only dream of working as an actor like Mr Bachchan at his age. The energy that he puts into every character in every movie is unbelievably intense; such is the greatness of this larger-than-life personality.
