We don’t have to forget Katrina either! One of her best early performances was, coincidentally, in an Amitabh movie. No, not Boom.
I made fun of it, but now I am intrigued. I’ve never seen the film myself but it is supposed to be legendarily bad. Only downside is that it has been sucked into the parallel universe of Zee5, so I’m not sure we can watch it.
A truly good good good movie. One of the all time career great performances for both Amitabh and Abhishek. And a very young and fresh Katrina was in there as well, giving a surprisingly great performance. Also, Tanisha Mukherjee! Being awesome too. Only downside is, no songs. Oh, and it’s on Prime/googleplay/youtube.
Bunty Aur Babli
Only downside to this movie, half my comments will be “I love it so much! So very very much!” Abhishek and Amitabh giving career best performances again, in a totally different genre and style from Sarkar. First time they co-starred too, and they are having a BLAST together. You want songs? This film has songs! You want romance? This film has romance! You want comedy about clueless white people so perfect it makes you cringe a little? This film has that too! You want one of the best First Night scenes in all of Hindi film? Yes, also that (they don’t know where the noses go when they kiss). Also on Prime/googleplay/youtube.
Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
Definitely the third best Abhishek/Amitabh movie. Not terrible, but not B ‘n B or Sarkar level. On the other hand, Shahrukh! And equally important, Netflix instead of Prime!
