Amitabh Bachchan-Tribute to the Bollywood Legend
Amitabh Bachchan is the voice of millions of film lovers. His personality, his voice, his professionalism made him the undisputable king of Bollywood; legend of Indian Cinema. Amitabh has recently completed his successful 40 years in Indian cinema. Please join CalcuttaTube in an EXCLUSIVE tribute to Amitabh Bacchan. We call it -“Biography of Amitabh Bachchan in a page”.[ReviewAZON asin=”B00009W8OZ” display=”inlinepost”]Indian history associates the year 1942 with the Quit India movement and the resultant call for Inquilab. But few people know that history was also being made when a little boy was born to poet Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan and his actress-wife Teji whose baby boy Inquilab represented their belief that “Inquilab” or revolution alone could lead to national freedom. This name was soon changed due to the persuasion of close friends and soon Inquilab gave way to Amitabh or “the light that will never go off.”

Amitabh’s father is a Kayasth and mother a Sikh. The family name was originally Shrivastava, but Dr. Bachchan took on the pen name of Bachchan, and hat became their surname. The elder son of Dr. Bachchan, Amitabh has a younger brother, Ajitabh. Their mother was interested in theatre but gave it up after marriage. Amitabh and his brother Ajitabh grew up understanding and appreciating literature and the performing arts. With the background of Dr. Harivansh Rai as a Hindi poet from Cambridge University and his mother a theatre person, the stage was set for Amitabh to kindle more than just a passing interest in literature and the arts.

Early in life, however, he didn’t see films as his calling and after schooling at Sherwood School, Nainital, went on to Kirori Mal College and then on to Delhi University for two M.A. degrees. His first job was with Shaw Wallace and then he moved on to work with a freight broking company, Bird and Co. Though he worked well here, his heart for something else, something more and come 1968, Amitabh decided to call it quits here and move on to what he really wanted to do–to act in films.

Amitabh Bachchan - A Tribute
Amitabh Bachchan - A Tribute

Unconventional looks, total rejection
When he reached Mumbai and knocked on the doors of producers and directors for a role in films, his tall, lanky and unconventional looks weren’t anything anyone in the business wanted to take a risk on. Oh, no. At 6 ft 3″ he was far too tall and a tad dark too. Rejection wasn’t anything Amitabh Bachchan knew until then and he then tried to use his other big asset–his deep baritone. He tried auditioning for All India Radio but didn’t make the grade there either.

1969: The Year of Success
The following year he decided to give it all up, and just as he did, he was offered a role by Khwaja Ahmed Abbas in a movie titled Saat Hindustani. The film did poorly but it fetched the fledgling actor his first National Award for the Best Newcomer. This film got him noticed but did not smoothen the path for him entirely. His days of struggle were still not over, but he persevered by doing bit roles and voice-overs until he was offered Hrishikesh Mukherji’s Anand, where he played the second lead to the then reigning star, Rajesh Khanna. He was recognized for his talent here in this emotional, heart-wrenching film which won him the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. In quick succession came a few films which weren’t very successful like Parwaana and Reshma aur Shera and a bit role in Guddi, with Jaya Bhaduri. After Baawarchi and Bombay to Goa came his first commercially successful film which got him the eyeballs he needed–Prakash Mehra’s Zanjeer.

Zanjeer and more hits
[ReviewAZON asin=”B000IZJRXS” display=”inlinepost”]Zanjeer was made in the early 1970s where he was cast as Inspector Vijay Khanna. He was cast as an honest police officer who fights corruption from within. But when he fails, he decides to continue his fight from outsider using dubious means. This marked the advent of the middle-class unconventional hero, which was something entirely new and in the years to come it fitted his personality very well. The success of this movie cast him in hte same role and sometimes with the same name, Vijay. With Zanjeer, there was a new wave in Hindi films and riding the crest of this wave was Amitabh Bachchan. In 1973, he married Hindi films’ top film star Jaya Bhaduri (Bengali in Origin) and one of their highly successful films, Abhiman, was released barely a month after they got married.  Around this time, he also acted in Hrishikesh Mukherji’s Namak Haram, a film about friendships, which won him a nomination for the Best Supporting Actor Award from Filmfare.

He moved on to act in Kunwara Baap and Dost and then in Manoj Kumar’s Roti, Kapda aur Makaan, the highest grosser of that year where he played a supporting role pitted against the hero. The film examined the state of Indian life at the time and the place of honesty in a common man’s life. His co-stars were Shashi Kapoor and Zeenat Aman.

By the mid-70s, his persona, his voice, his mannerisms and his dialog delivery had everyone flocking to the theatres to see his films, not just once but over and over again. By this time, he had consolidated his position as the leader of the pack. In 1975, he acted in two of the best films of his entire career–Sholay and Deewar. The friendship between Jai and Veeru onscreen and the magic of that film as a whole once again brought Amitabh Bachchan to the top of the charts in Hindi films. He was cast opposite the best names in the industry–Dharmendra, Sanjeev Kumar, Hema Malini, Jaya Bhaduri and Amjad Khan. In 1999, Sholay was named the “Film of the Millennium” by BBC. In the same year, Filmfare awards turned 50 and used that platform to award this film with a special distinction award titled Filmfare Best Film of 50 Years. Quick on its heels that year was Yash Chopra’s Deewaar, another film where Amitabh was given the lucky screen name of Vijay. This film won him accolades for being a poor coolie who wants to strike it rich and fight his father’s killers. His angry young man persona and his passion to succeed in life. Superb dialog written by Salim-Javed added to the magic of this movie and it ultimately won him a nomination for the Filmfare Best Actor Award. With this movie, he was ready to take on the biggies of the industry.

By now, his histrionics were something everyone loved. All it needed were powerful dialogs and a strong storyline and Amitabh Bachchan would do the rest to any director’s satisfaction. He had created an aura of being a superstar and directors of all grades would queue up to sign him on for their films. He had transformed the personality of a Hindi film hero to be one who fights unemployment, corruption, deprivation and various social ills. Overnight almost, Amitabh became the voice of millions all over India. He was their champion, their hero, their big brother who would fight their cause not just with words but with action too. He could do on film what they could never imagine in real life. Just as he fought all social evils on celluloid, they fought the rain, heat, personal problems and long queues at theatres to get that one ticket to see the Big B in action.

Masala films which had action, dance, song, fight against corruption, etc ruled the screen and Amitabh ruled that genre of films. When Manmohan Desai began making films about three brothers who were separated in childhood and reunited by a common song, the trend of three big stars and their female counterparts began. One such big blockbuster hit was Desai’s Amar Akbar Anthony for which Amitabh won the Filmfare Best Actor Award 1977.

Action films
Perhaps his best action film was Don, again in 1977, a fantastic film made by Chandra Barot. It was so hugely successful that a remake was made recently by Farhan Akhtar, though not a patch on the original. For this film, Amitabh won his second Filmfare Best Actor Award.

Romantic films
[ReviewAZON asin=”B000IZJRJM” display=”inlinepost”]It was perhaps Yash Chopra who saw a romantic side to Amitabh which he could evoke in his own films. Borne of this thought came the ever popular Kabhi Kabhi followed by Silsila, where he co-starred with his wife Jaya Bachchan and Rekha. Yash Chopra’s Kala Pathar and Trishul again called for Amitabh, the Angry Young Man,  to come forth and play his part to the hilt. By now, he was at the  peak of his popularity, he received a major setback in the form of a serious injury while shooting a fight sequence for the film Coolie. Though doctors said the injury was serious and perhaps even life-threatening, he bounced back, thanks to the millions of fans who prayed for his recovery. When he returned to films, it was like as if he was never away. The top slot was still his and he reigned at that position for long. The film did exceedingly well as fans wanted to see the scene that caused their idol to be at death’s door, or almost.

Myasthena Gravis and politics (1984-87)
Soon after, doctors diagnosed that he suffered from Myasthenia gravis, which made him both physically and mentally weak. He took a long while to recover, and when he did, he quit films and went into politics in 1984 to support his old friend, Rajiv Gandhi. He won the Allahabad Lok Sabha seat defeating HN Bahuguna, ex-chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and won by a very good margin. However, after three years of  active politics, he resigned,  not wanting to be “in the cesspool of politics.” This was also linked to Amitabh and his brother Ajitabh’s supposed involvement in the Bofor’s scandal. The brothers won the lawsuit against them and were happy to be absolved of all guilt.One person who helped him out of his beleaguered ABCL was Amar Singh, general secretary of the Samajwadi party. Amitabh began supporting Amar Singh’s party while Jaya Bachchan joined it and also became a member of the Rajya Sabha.

The Shahenshah returns (1988-1992)
In 1988, Amitabh returned to Hindi films and created box office magic with his role in and as Shahenshah. Though he had a hit in the 1991 film, Hum, box office failures continued to dog him until he won his second National Film Award for his role in Agneepath, where he played an underworld don. After his role in Khuda Gawah in 1992, he went into a retirement phase for about five years.

ABCL launched (1996)
In 1996, Amitabh set up Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited (ABCL) in a bid to turn producer. He had a vision of setting up this entertainment company which would bring in services and products that would cover the entire gamut of the Indian entertainment industry. It would span distributing and selling films, audio cassettes, videos, produce and market TV software and event management. The first film it produced was Tere Mere Sapne, which flopped. It also sponsored the 1996 Miss World beauty pageant at Bangalore in 2000 which flopped, leading the company to lose millions. It was embroiled in various legal issues following this event, which ultimately led to the company’s closure.

Kaun Banega Crorepati?
The year 2000 was extremely lucky for Amitabh as it proved to be the turning point in his career. By now, TV was not to be scoffed at and realizing this, Amitabh Bachchan hosted the Indian adaptation of the internationally popular show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Amitabh hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati which did exceedingly well till November 2005, in which period he did two seasons of this show. In fact, this show proved to the launch pad for his return to films. On October 4, 2009, Amitabh returned to the small screen to host another popular show, Bigg Boss 3.

New roles, new energy (2000-till date)
The year 2000 saw Amitabh in Yash Chopra’s hit film, Mohabbatein, directed by Aditya Chopra. Here, he did the role of a stern principal of a school, one that was evenly poised with that of a younger character, played by Shahrukh Khan. In this phase of his career, he played older roles, many of which were specially written for him. After Mohabbatein came  Ek Rishtaa: The Bond of Love (2001), Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001), Baghban (2003), Aks (2001), Aankhen (2002), Khakee (2004), Dev (2004) and Black (2005). His popularity now saw him endorsing several products on Tv and hoarding sites.  In 2005 and 2006, he starred with his son Abhishek in the hit films Bunty Aur Babli (2005), the Godfather tribute Sarkar (2005), and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna (2006). All these movies did well at the box office. He also gave brilliant performances in Baabul (2006), Eklavya and Nishabd (2007), and a guest appearance in a Kannada movie Amruthadaare.

2007 marked two entirely different films, Cheeni Kum and  Shootout at Lokhandwala, of which the latter did extremely well. However, Ram Gopal Verma’s version of Sholay (titled Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag, was a disaster. The Last Lear, directed by Rituparno Ghosh, was Amitabh’s first film in English. His performance in this film was lauded by critics. Amitabh is also due to play the second lead in the international film,  Shantaram, directed by Mira Nair. It stars Hollywood star Johnny Depp. The very delightful Bhoothnath, in which he plays a friendly ghost was released in 2008 and was well received.  Sarkar Raj, in which he acted with son Abhishek, was also a commercial  success.

Health problems
Towards the end of 2005, Amitabh underwent surgery for diverticulitis of the small intestine. This was in response to his complaint of  abdominal pain.  Once he recovered from this, he returned to work in March 2006.

Deep, impressive voice
Amitabh’s voice is ideal for film narration, playback singing and commentaries. This was first discovered and used by renowned film director Satyajit Ray for his film Shatranj Ke Khiladi. In 1979, Amitabh sang a song for the first time in Mr. Natwarlal.

Personal life
Amitabh, married to actress Jaya Bhaduri in the 70s. They have two children Shweta Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan. Abhishek, also an actor, is married to  actress Aishwarya Rai.

Today, at 67 and after completing 40 years in Hindi cinema, he continues to have the same energy and enthusiasm for his work. On this great occasion, the world gives him a standing ovation and believes that legends like him walk this world just once. We are proud to have him in our midst.
