Short Description

Amitabh Bachchan As The Other' by Shoma A Chatterji is not a biographical study of the actor. Beyond the persistent ‘angry young man’ label, Chatterji contends that Bachchan's cinematic prowess defies stereotypes, aligning him more closely with the intriguing concept of ‘The Other.’ This ‘Other’ challenges norms, demands our attention, holds us responsible for our actions, and prompts a reconsideration of our understanding of the world. To substantiate this thesis, Chatterji meticulously examines fifteen of Bachchan’s classic performances spanning two decades, from Anand to Agneepath. The other films in this study include Parwana, Zanjeer, Saudagar, Namak Haram, Abhimaan, Deewaar, Sholay, Amar Akbar Anthony, Don, Muqaddar Ka Sikandar, Shakti, Coolie, and Main Azaad Hoon. In the chapter titled ‘Othering the Other,’ we witness a mellow Bachchan embracing roles he never thought possible in his youth.
