5 Times When Hrithik Nailed It



As  Hrithik Roshan gets set to prove  his might as  real-life mathematician Anand Kumar in Super  30 we  look at his  best performances so far. The  selection  will surprise  many.

1.     Bhagwan Dada(1986): all of 12, Hrithik held his own against  stalwarts  Rajinikanth and Sridevi in this  underrated  drama of a criminal who  is reformed by the love of a child. Playing a central role  Hrithik played his character Govinda with professional expertise. I don’t think he was so  unaffected  in any of his adult roles.Hrithik’s Nanaji(maternal  grandfather) J Om Prakash directed  the  film.

2.     Fizaa(2000): Soon after his sensational  debut as a leading man in Kaho Na…Pyar Hai,Hrithik  played  a terror-accused Muslim youth in this  uneven  but  powerful  thriller-drama  directed  by film critic Khalid Mohamed.. Hrithik had for company Jaya Bachchanas  his  mother and  Karisma  Kapoor as   his sister. He performed with ease  and grace.

3.     Na Tum Jaano Na Hum(2002): In my opinion  Hrithik never  gave a more effortlessly romantic  performance  in any   of his films  so far. Playing a romantic at heart who  falls in love with a woman(Esha Deol) whom he has never met , Hrithik showed a remarkable restrain  often  to be found lacking in his  later lauded performance, some of which are borderline-hammy.

4.     Guzaarish (2010): Playing the  paraplegic Ethan Mascarenhas  who would rather die than be a burden on those who care for him ,Hrithik delivered a bravura performance bringing into his character’s world of frozen  dreams  an illuminated  expanse  of sunshine and desire.Hrithik worked hard on  getting right the  body language  of  the  paraplegic character. Striving for  perfection got  boring thereafter.

5.     Super  30(2019): After a  slew of over-the-top  performance, the piece de resistance  of  excessive  zeal being Bang Bang, Hrithik  will be seen  staying  resolutely in character as  mathematician Anand  Kumar in a biopic that will leave no eyes dry in the  theatre.
