Bachchan plays the role of a tortured merchant navy captain who becomes a miner to forget his tragic past.

2. Kaalia

Written and directed by Tinnu Anand, this film is another memorable film from the era of Bachchan’s Angry Young Man. It is the story of a carefree young man who is dragged into the world of crime after a life-changing accident.

3. Silsila

Very popular for its hit track
Yeh Kahan Aa Gaye Hum, the triangular romance was a casting coup by producer-director Yash Chopra. While the main actors Bachchan and Rekha were rumored to be real-life lovers, the film is also starring his wife, Jaya Bachchan.

Amar Akbar Anthony

Bachchan plays the second brother in this story of brothers divided at birth which also stars Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi and Nitu Singh. Cleverly bringing religious unity, the film is about brothers finding their way back to each other even as their worlds collide. Khanna plays a police officer, Bachchan a thief and Rishi Kapoor is a musician.

Namak Halaal

It was one of the biggest blockbuster comedy films of 1982. The masala film is about Arjun (Bachchan) who moves to the city in search of work and ends up befriending the man his mother raised as her son.


The popular musical is about two musicians who are husband and wife. Jealousy overcomes Bachchan who realizes that his talented wife, played by Jaya Bachchan, is becoming more popular than him.


The film, which had the third highest box office gross in 1978, revolves around the life of the gangster named Don, played by Bachchan. Although it was remade by Farhan Akhtar with Shah Rukh Khan in two parts, the original with Pran and other actors is a film worth watching.

Satte Pe Satta

The film embodies the concept of an ensemble cast as it has six actors playing Bachchan’s brothers, who is obviously the eldest. It stars Hema Malini, Amjad Khan, Ranjeeta Kaur and Sachin Pilgaonkar, Shakti Kapoor and others.

Chupke Chupke

The family comedy with Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Jaya Bachchan and Big B has become known as a masterpiece. The story is an elaborate joke played on a confident lawyer and businessman who is Dharmendra’s brother-in-law, Om Prakash. Despite his high-profile cast, Om Prakash’s action as an unsuspecting victim has won many hearts.


Do you want to know where the classic line comes from, “Mere paas maa hai”? Watch this movie on the big screen: the story of two brothers Vijay and Ravi, who go their separate ways. Vijay (Bachchan) becomes a wanted smuggler, while Ravi (Shashi Kapoor) becomes an honest police officer and fate crosses their paths.
