The 100 Best Performances of Hindi Cinema (Bobby Talks Cinema EXCLUSIVE)

100 Best Performances of Hindi Cinema - Bobby Talks Cinema.com

The listing here is purely based on individual power packed performances by the actors, irrespective of the success or failure of the movies taken into consideration.   And the first two entries have been given a special mention for a specific reason.

If we include all the masterpieces featuring the two legends of Hindi Film Industry, Dilip Kumar & Amitabh Bachchan as individual entries, then they will indisputably capture a substantial number of counts, which will in turn forcibly keep many deserving movies out of the list. Hence all the world famous movies of these two veterans are respectably included as the first & second entries of the 100 Best.

Written in alphabetical order (except the first two), many readers may find the list incomplete, as their favourite performance or actor might be missing in the Final 100. So, I would like to request to add your favourite acts in a comment following the post (as your personal recommendation) which will surely help the write-up to be more comprehensive from all angles.
So here are
