    The original game-changer: Amitabh Bachchan

    By Rajiv Vijayakar, Oct 11, 2012 – 11:40 IST

    He came. He saw. He Changed The Rules Of The Game.
    Amitabh Bachchan, who turns 70 today (October 11), began his film innings in 1968-69, shooting for K.A.Abbas’ Saat Hindustani. It was standard ‘tradition’ that actors came, improved on the job irrespective of past acting backgrounds, and (if at all) began winning awards a few films and years down the line.

    But Bachchan, on sheer merit, clinched the National award for Best Newcomer with his debut performance itself, and then went one better: he bagged the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor trophy for Anand, his second film!! This achievement was repeated by Rishi Kapoor (his first two Mera Naam Joker, Bobby) but Bachchan led the way.

    Saat Hindustani had no romantic interest for Bachchan – a taboo for someone aspiring to be a star then. Neither did Bachchan possess the looks or body type to become the archetypal chocolate or dramatic hero. Even his first ‘heroine’ Sumita Sanyal (Anand), was a non-star, and in that film, they were already married when the film began. What’s more, he never serenaded her with a song, as he did not have any songs in this film! (more…)




  • Sanket’s Review: “Table No. 21” has its heart in the right place, but it deserved better writing.

    Cast: Paresh Rawal, Raajev Khandelwal, Teena Desae

    Director: Aditya Datt

    Length: 1.45 hours approximately.

    To start of this New Year, we have this week’s “Table No.21” which has its heart in right place, but deserved better writing. The film makes a point to deliver a very good message and has social concern too, but all it would have hit the nail had the writers justified with their job. Not that the message is not clear, but its just not louder!

    Dabangg 2 remained the top Hindi film in its third week with business around the 1.5-1.6 crore nett mark. The drop from last Friday is around 62% which is solid trending. The weekend should go to around 8 crore nett.

    The stand out performance has come in Bihar where it is likely to cross the figures of Bodyguard and become the highest grossing film ever. This is followed by Delhi/UP where it may come out with a 20 crore distributor share which has only been achieved by Ek Tha Tiger which did 23 crore plus.

    The business in Mumbai circuit may hit 30 crore in terms of share which has only been achieved by Three Idiots and Ek Tha Tiger. (more…)
