Where to stream Bachchan movies

This weekend Amitabh Bachchan turns 78, and there’s no better way for us to celebrate him than by going on a Bachchan binge. It’s impossible to cram in his vast and varied body of work in 48 hours, so we’ve taken the liberty to curate a watchlist according to your mood. Yes, there’s a Bachchan film for every mood. So if you want a laugh, or need a burst of energy, these are the films to turn to. Needless to say, there are many, many great films that don’t find a mention here because there’s only so much you can achieve over a weekend. But if you want to cover more Bachchan ground, here’s a list of his 50 greatest moments on screen.

Bachchan the Funnyman
