Trivia

The director decided not to dub the anti-climax scene of Munshi's death as they felt very emotional after Amitabh's performance. See more »

Goofs

When Amitabh Bachchan goes to Police Inspector Anwar's house for a party, the calendar in his house shows the date January 12. Later when Munshiji is in hospital on his death bed, the calendar shows December 1983. It is impossible that it has been almost a year since the two scenes are supposed be just days apart.

Amitabh's greatest ever performance!
8 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think Sharabi is Amitabh Bachchan greatest ever performance as an actor. I have seen Deewar many times, Agneepath comes close.

But for sheer acting he displayed in this film i think this has to be his greatest ever performance. The way he acts as a semi-drunk throughout the film and the dialouges he delivers are the stuff of legend.

I know bollywood is going through a re-make trend. I urge film-makers NOT to ever remake this film. It is almost impossible! I would really feel sorry for the actor if a remake is ever made. Whoever the actor maybe he will get humiliated in a the re-make. Amitabh has given his career best performance which can never be matched by any other actor from India.
