Satte Pe Satta (1982)
This movie is an adaptation of ‘Seven Brides for Seven Brothers’ and is perhaps Amitabh’s best comedy film ever. The film is a laugh riot and all the characters are adorable and funny. Big B’s played a double role in the film and was widely praised for his acting. The film also pairs him with Amjad Khan with whom he worked in a lot of other movies particularly the mega hit Sholay.
This is the nearest Bollywood has come to James Bond. This movie is all about girls, guns and gadgets. Amitabh Bachchan plays a con-man who has Shashi Kapoor as his partner, and both of them are reckless and money driven. They are the brothers of an honest police officer who is killed by the villain. The brothers pledge to take revenge and the fun part of the movie begins. And, yes, this is the movie that gave us “pyaar karne vale pyaar karte hai shaan se”....
A big movie with an overflowing star cast; an ensemble of great actors and an interesting plot of love, friendship, sacrifice, betrayal and, above all, destiny. With a tightly-knit story backed by powerful performances, this film is one of Bachchan’s best. Watch it for the song “John Johnny Janardan” and you’ll get to see some of the greatest actors of that era in one song, something which was replicated by Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om.
Big B plays a young, confident and dashing coolie in this movie, which has a typical pot-boiler plot with too much of family drama and action. What this movie will always be remembered for is the accident that occurred with Amitabh Bachchan on the sets which left him in a very critical condition. The entire nation was praying for Bachchan. He recovered and completed the movie, which was bound to be a box-office hit.
