S3 Episode 7: Watching Bachchan on the big screen in the 70s and 80s

Chances are, if you love Hindi cinema, you love Amitabh Bachchan and his films. Having grown up in the 90s, well past peak Bachchan mania, I've always wondered what it would've been like to have lived through that peak mania.  What must the thrill have been like to have witnessed his stardom at its peak? To get a better idea, I spoke with a small group of cinephiles and Bachchan fans who were fortunate enough to have watched the actor's 70s and 80s filmography on the big screen. I was joined by hardcore Bachchan fans, Sandeep Loyalka, M. Tanveer and Sandeep Padhi to share their memories of watching Bachchan on the big screen in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Among the stories and memories they shared: Watching Sholay multiple times, bumping into Ramesh Sippy one fine day, camping overnight outside the theatre for tickets, eagerly awaiting the daily newspaper for updates on the actor's health following his accident on the sets of Coolie (1983), and watching Bachchan's films in a small town in Odisha.Watching Bachchan on the big screen, back in the day!Feedback/comments/questions: loveofcinemasf@gmail.comCredits:Produced and hosted by: Himanshu (@loveofcinemasf8)Editor: Devika JoglekarMusic: Nakul Abhyankar Copyrights © Love of Cinema 2021 Support the show (https://www.paypal.me/LoveOfCinema)
