Amitabh's greatest ever performance!
8 November 2006 | by amo_11See 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.
