But through everything there has been one constant and that is his sheer brilliance. He has portrayed an array of roles that goes to the farthest stretch of our imagination. Here is the list of top Amitabh Bachchan movies, selected from his vast filmography. You can watch some of these best Amitabh Bachchan movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
20. Mohabbatein (2000)
This movie came at a juncture in Amitabh Bachchan’s life, when he was broke and reeling in debt. He asked for a role from Yash Chopra and got this. In hindsight, it was Yash Chopra who was blessed with Amitabh’s presence because he gave a performance that only he could. He is a disciplinarian, a tough guy, someone who believes in rules. A guy, who gets every sterner with his daughter’s death and dedicates his life in discipling the boys to a world of men. His mere diction and clarity of speech with Hindi is a masterclass in itself. Any actor trying to make it in the business of movies, should spend watching his fluent and strong speeches than sweating it out in the gym. For anyone who can deliver a dialogue but to make it stick in the audience’s mind you need so much more.

19. Aks (2001)
It was a difficult character, for he had to drop all his inhibitions and play a bold character. He had done grey characters this was more villainous than he had done anything before. The movie made him explore areas of acting, he never thought existed in him and in the darkness of the scenes, he emerged as the one who could do it all. This movie deserves a special mention because not only he showed faith in the newbie Rakesh Omprakash Mehra but also took on a very challenging role.
