Amitabh Bachchan: My List of 45 Greatest Films Of Big B to celebrate 40 Glorious Years In Indian Cinema

The Daddy Of Indian Film Industry, a great entertainer.

Amitabh Bachchan (Big B) is not only just an actor, superstar or celebrity; he has been phenomenon and one of the most charismatic personality that history has ever noticed. This year Big B completes his great four decades in Indian Cinema, a good long successful journey – which doesn’t only showcase his success and glory but also an inspiration about how a man with such a high persona goes through low and rebound again to the top. He has achieved those heights and recognition that no one else can even match closely. He is someone who is incomparable from anyone. He is talented, creative, humble, & good human being.
I have been his great fan since from the time I started watching & understanding movies. His style, looks, dialogs and every character played left great effect on me. From Saat Hindustani to Delhi 6 and further the list goes on; he done more than 180 movies and literally ruled the Box Office not only India but across the world. He is so popular abroad that Indians are being identified as Amitabh Bachchan in most of foreign countries. Often being compared from all sort of actors, dragged into controversies, criticized and many things which tried to pull him down… but he is a man of steel and always been humble to people and did his work with great honesty. Hats off to him.
To pay tribute to the God Of Indian Cinema; I am just listing few of the great movies of Big B which are my all time favorites and I can keep watching them again and again. You all must be thinking that I am having so much of extra time but as a great fan at least I can do this much.
