Indian Cinema today lost a star actor whose loss has deeply shaken the Bollywood industry as a whole. I saw actor Irfan in his last appearance on the big screen in the film ‘English Medium’ which was released in March this year only.
In his 32-year career, Irrfan has done a quite a films that proved to be milestones in film history. The most special thing is that Irfan has also been awarded the National Award for the film ‘Paan Singh Tomar’. Irrfan Khan, who is called the master of the art of acting, today we will tell you about 10 best movies of Irrfan Khan for which he will always be remembered.
The film was directed by Mr Vishal Bhardwaj, where Irrfan Khan plays the lead character of Maqbool. In the story, Maqbool is a trusted man of an underworld don Abba Ji (Pankaj Kapoor). He is quietly in love with Nimmi (Tabu), a maid who works with Abba. She provokes Maqbool against Abba ji and Maqbool kills Abba ji. The sudden change in Irrfan’s character seems unique in terms of the pace of the film.
Paan Singh Tomar (2012)
How does Pan Singh Tomar become the famous dacoit of Chambal who won a gold medal in the Indian National Games? This film tells the truth of that dacoit from the beginning to the end. Acclaimed Bollywood Film Director Mr Tigmanshu Dhulia portrayed Irrfan on screen in the role of Paan Singh Tomar. When Irfan speaks the language and dialect of Madhya Pradesh in the film, it seems as if Irfan grew up in the same environment. Irrfan has also received the National Film Award for this film.
Life of Pi (2012)
Irfan has earned more respect in Hollywood than he has gained in Hindi cinema. Directed by Taiwanese director Ang Lee, Irrfan is seen narrating his biography to a writer. Irrfan begins his story from childhood, and describes in detail the teenage incident in which he spent a long time on a boat with a lion. Staying on a boat with a hungry lion on its own gives a situation like a suicide.
Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster Returns (2013)
The film Sahen Biwi Aur Gangster Returns was one of finest films by Film director Tigmanshu. The film received international acclaim. Irrfan plays the character of the ruined Sultan Inderjit Singh in this film. He is struggling to recover his lost legacy, which has been ruined by the ancestors of Aditya Pratap (Jimmy Shergill). This film gives a lot of dose of hate, love, cheating, lust etc.
Lunch Box (2013)
Lunch box means lunch box. It would be strange to hear a story of love exchanging with a box swap, but if you look in detail, you too will get carried away. Irrfan’s films earn less, receive more accolades. This film was his highest-grossing film until the Hindi medium was released. The films becomes very popular in overseas market.
The murder case of Aarushi Talwar and her servant Hemraj in Noida, adjacent to the country’s capital Delhi, is still discussed. The Director Ms Meghna Gulzar, who made films on challenging issues like ‘Raazi’ and ‘Chhapak’, was screened on the screen. Irfan played the role of Ashwani Kumar, a CBI officer investigating the case in this film.
Directed by Mr Nishikant Kamat, the film’s Madari is none other than Irfan Khan himself. He makes the Indian Army and the CBI dance to the tune of his damru that his little message spreads all over India by himself. Nirmal Kumar (Irrfan Khan )’s son Apu dies after a bridge collapses. Nirmal loses himself on the death of his son. He kidnaps the home minister’s son to teach the system a lesson.
Hindi Medium (2017)
This is Irrfan’s most successful film so far. Directed by Mr Saket Chaudhary, the film is full of comedy, but gives a much larger social message. A person with no money takes away the rights of so many poor people unknowingly on their own money. It is told very simplistically in this film. All the scenes of the film will look like you.
Almost Single (2017)
The Hindi medium seems to have a story and parallel with the poor arrangement of schools, with a love story of husband and wife. To see this story in detail, you must watch this film. Directed by Ms Tanuja Chandra, the film’s love story has the power to prove a dwarf to any good love story.
When the story of this film starts with the exchange of two zombies, no one knows anything about the new relationship. Irrfan laughs and imparts knowledge as a driver in the character of Shaukat. By the way, a new form of him appears in every film. His form was completely different. The entire film runs like a fast car on the road.
