5 evergreen Salim-Javed films


On Salim Sahib's 87th birthday, we discuss how the screenwriting duo of Salim Khan-Javed Akhtar introduced the angry young man character in Hindi cinema. Here are five films in this sub-genre.


India had low economic growth and the angry young man characters represented the youth. 'Zanjeer' marks the advent of Amitabh Bachchan as the new-age hero who fights all the odds.


The Yash Chopra film is known for its dialogues and iconic scenes. It's a tale of two brothers who try to survive in the slums of Bombay and find themselves on opposing sides of the law.


It's regarded as one of the greatest Hindi films of all time. This film is iconic for varied reasons, be it Gabbar's evil yet magnificent laugh or Dharmendra's comic timing.


Another iconic Bachchan film loved by generations. Notably, Zeenat Aman's portrayal of Roma Bhagat was loved by many for showing shades of feminism.


The year 1978 was Bachchan's year and multiple releases made him taste box office success like anything. The three-hero film co-starring Sanjeev Kumar and Shashi Kapoor was unique in nature.
