Amitabh Bachchan and his top 10 favourite films of all time
1.Gone With The Wind... Great novel, epic proportions, exquisite performances esp. Vivien Leigh, grand saga, finest interpretation from book to film I’ve ever seen.
2.Kaagaz Ke Phool... Poignant and incredible theme, most lingering visuals, music, performances and the ethereal Waheedaji. She’s my favourite.
3.Black... The film changed my life. It connected me with feelings that I didn’t know existed within me. Sanjay Leela Bhansali is an absolute magician on screen.
4.Judgment At Nuremburg... I have always had a fascination for films about the Nazis and World War II. This was a film on the courtroom trial for the war crimes. I remember it mainly for the excellent and haunting performance of Montgomery Clift in a small cameo.
5.Scarface... The brilliant performance of Al Pacino elevated this gangster epic to the level of a quasi-classic.
6.Godfather I/II/III... A complete classic …loved all three parts..the growth of the film, its characters, the premise, the naturalness of the presentation and above all, Marlon Brando’s towering performance. The trilogy is so engrossing…everything is perfect about it.
7.Ganga Jamuna.. Dilip Kumar Sahib’s greatest performance ever …the setting, story, everything was unusual and trend setting.
8.Anupama... I just love the softness and simplicity of the film, its unexaggerated performances. It had a lyrical quality about it. This was a film by one of favourite directors Hrishikesh Mukherjee.
9.On the Waterfront… “Dynamic story, Brando at his bests, so real and compelling, like The Godfather, this film created huge stars out of even those who played small and seemingly insignificant roles.”
10.Giant... Absolute dynamite, the ultimate story and casting…. and that wonder called James Dean.
