Inclusion of screen legend and “Superstar of the millennium” Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan’s successive movies, his contribution for the film industry and all his achieved awards in a few words is not my claim, since it’s almost unfeasible task for me. However, my strain is to put pen to paper primarily about the movies that won him “National Film Awards for Best Actor” only to be specific to present my text at ease.
National Film Awards for Best Actor is presented every year as a great honour to the actor who best of the best performance in Indian Film Industry. And the award is presented by the Indian President at the award ceremony in Delhi. For many actors it remains only a dream to achieve this honour once but becomes tough for them. Kamal Hasan, Mommootty and Amitabh Bachchan are the lucky actors to be awarded thrice with this honourable award. Among them Megastar Amithab’s movies: Agneepath, Paa and Black won him National Film Awards for Best Actor in 1990, 2005 and 2009 respectively.

Amitabh Harivansh Bachchan’s characters from Agneepath up to Paa are quiet interestingly intertwined with one to another. Agneepath gives birth to a stubborn and angry Vijay- a gangster at his prime life time when he was young and strong and had warm blood in him. He could even easily murder anyone within a blink of time without any obstacles. But the antagonistic time ruins his prolific and vigorous life to torn out helpless old man, Debraj as in Black. He quits all his warring nature and starts preaching the physically challenged student, Michelle McNally. We can surmise that Debraj dies there in Blace only to be Auro- genetic-defect son of his own real son Abishek Bachchan. Thus, his awards primarily National Film Awards for Best Actor tether his movie characters from one stage of life to another stage.
