Amir Khan – the decent actor of bollywood.
Amir Khan is one of the most decent actors of the last 15 years of bollywood films. He started his career with the hit film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, in 1988, opposite Juhi Chawla and gained public acclaimation. The film also became for its songs including “papa kehte hai”, “akele hai”, etc. somposed by Anand Milind and sung by Udit Narayan.
Amir Khan believes in acting in less number of films and acting in good films. For these reasons who had provided one or two decent films every year from the time he started his career. He was sublime in the film Hum Hai Rahi Pyar Ke, opposite Juhi Chawla and Dil, opposite Madhuri Dixit.
Even in films showing patriotic feelings like Sarfarosh, Amir Khan had shown his dynamic style of acting. As a police officer, he instilled the generousness and passion of being honest to the other officers. Sonali Bendre supported him with her performance in the film.
Amir Khan probably had done his best in the film Lagaan, where he led a group of villagers of India during the colonial period and entered a challenge with the British cricket team. The condition was that if he had won the match, the revenues and other bindings that were there with the villagers would have been relaxed. It was a very difficult task as cricket required skills, and the villagers did not have it. With a lot of effort, will and passion he trained the eleven players and ultimately faced the British cricket team. There were other aspects in the film, but the novel subject matter had resulted in it being one of the landmarks in Indian film history.
Amir Khan was also sublime in the film Rang De Basanti, and Fanaa. In Fanaa, he acted opposite Kajol and balanced her powerful performance in a blind role with his own soft considerate performance. Amir Khan had very good comedy skills and that had been evident in his performance in the film Ishq, opposite Juhi Chawla, where Ajay Devgan and Kajol also had done well. If Shahrukh Khan is the mass entertainer of the present times, Salman Khan is the ideal body builder, then Amir Khan is the soft romantic actor. As he almost enters the skin of the character he plays, the audience expects even better performance from him in future both as an actor and director, because in that filed also he had shown promise with his film Tare Zameen Par.
