"India Poised" by Amitabh Bachchan

Guest Author

Read about "India Poised" campaign here.

Amitabh Bachchan, Big B, is a Bollywood superstar. In my opinion, and many others (Greatest Star of the Millennium by BBC where he beat Charlie Chaplin and Marlon Brando, Most powerful Indian star by Forbes, Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF),  he is the best actor Bollywood has ever produced so far and it's really nice to see him reciting this anthem. My childhood is full of his movies such as Mr Natwarlal, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Amar Akbar Anthony, Don, Do Aur Do Paanch, Shaan, Naseeb, Satte Pe Satta, Coolie and many more.

If you understand Hindi, then I'd recommend to watch that one since, to me, that connects directly to the heart.

    In other aspects, he might be good. But in acting, he is a normal actor. I strongly feel he is not a better actor than Marlon Brando. May be many people who voted for Amitabh are indians and have not seen other movies.. or just could be because he is an Indian. I feel that in India itself, there are many better actors than him. Mohanlal , Mammooti and Kamal Hassan won national award 3 times as best actor while amitabh won it once.

    I've seen one movie of Mohanlal and found him good. I've not seen Mammooti but Kamal Hassan is definitely good and versatile as well. IMHO, winning a national award or any other award is by no means a judge of how good an actor is. And if award is indeed a criteria, then check out Amitabh's wikipedia entry, it's fully loaded and not just national but international as well.
