BOMBAY TO GOA, ZANJEER and NAMAK HARAM
BOMBAY TO GOA: If one were to pick up one scene which stands out in the film, it is the scene where he confronts the villain Shatrughan Sinha in the climax scene, which later on became the hallmark of his performances in the films to come.
ZANJEER: The film which made him what he was, and there are scores of scenes that stand out for their own merit, but the scene which really oozed of the dignity of uniform and the pride of police, was where he fires Pran by kicking the chair when Pran tries to sit, was one of the significant highlights of the film.
ABHIMAAN: Way back in the early eighties watching the film in a mofussil town in Gorakhpur, the scene that he enacted when the lines from the song, 'tere mere Milan kee ye raina- tujhe thame kai haathon mein', was the scene of ABHIMAAN which had left everybody's eyes moist. The initiative to reach out was what made the scene memorable.
SAUDAGAR: Playing the role of a jaggery maker, the dawn of sense of aghast, when Padma Khanna is not able to make the gur same way as Nutan used to make, pronounced in succinct detail the dilemma of love vs. livelihood and the sense of futility of having pursued love (Padma Khanna) at a cost of livelihood (leaving Nutan) was hallmark scene of the film.
NAMAK HARAAM: It was again within a time span of two years that two thespians clashed, Big B in the process of replacing Kaka. The scene that was outstanding in the film was where there is a confrontation between Amitabh Bachchan and Rajesh Khanna in the end was one of the most memorable scenes of the film.
