Amitabh Bachchan's Greatest Movies

I know it's very difficult to rate his awesome work in a particular order and i am trying my best here...Some of his movies just cannot be compared with each other...so being 3-4 places down from a particular movie does not mean that it's rated low. All your FEEDBACK and CRITICISM is HIGHLY APPRECIATED. i need it to get my list right. Thank you.
