Hrithik Roshan’s Best Performances: Top 5

Several readers have been requesting for our list of Hrithik Roshan’s Best Performances. Here it is!

1. Agneepath – It’s been 5 months now since the film released and it’s been hard to get over Hrithik’s performance in Agneepath.  The revenge-filled blood-soaked eyes when Vijay Dinanath Chauhan returns to Mandwa (see the attached image) is easily my favorite scene in the film. What makes this performance more special, is the sheer enormity of reprising one of Amitabh Bachchan’s most iconic characters. One step wrong and Hrithik would have been at the receiving end of severe criticism. Performance rating – 5 / 5.

2. Koi Mil Gaya – At the absolute lowest point in his career, in one of the most difficult roles, Hrithik Roshan delivered his career best performance as Rohit. The transformation from a mentally challenged man, to a grown up mature adult.. took place in one song (It’s magic) and Hrithik did it with effortless ease – atleast that’s how it looked on screen. His KMG act also won him the Filmfare Best Actor Popular and Critics awards. Rating: 5 /5.

3. Guzaarish – Another flawless performance in a film that didn’t do too well at the box-office. It was only after the release of this Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film that the media finally started recognizing Hrithik as one of the best actors in the country. He plays the role of a physically handicapped magician, who doesn’t let his disability kill his uplifting mood. Flawless. Rating: 5 / 5.

4. Lakshya – Feeling depressed or low? This coming-of-age flick, is one of the most inspiring films to come out of Bollywood and ranks high in the list of Hrithik’s best performances. As Karan Shergill, Hrithik is brilliantly under-stated. Then comes the transformation and he aces that too! Rating: 4.5 / 5.

5. Jodhaa Akbar – Playing the role of Jalaluddin Mohammad Akbar, Hrithik’s restrained act won him the Filmfare Best Actor award. He looked every bit the royal emperor and shared excellent chemistry with Aishwarya Rai. Jodha Akbar is the only commercially successful historical in the last decade or so. Rating: 4.5 / 5

Other noteworthy performances – Starting with his debut film that made him a superstar overnight – Rohit / Raj in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai, as Amaan in Fiza, Altaaf Khan in Mission Kashmir, Krishna in Krrish, Aryan in Dhoom 2 and finally Arjun in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

    What do you think @indicine?

  • I will rate hrithik as one of the top star in the country and whenever he has done any film. He has just outclassed himself as an actor for me top 5 perfomance of hrithik is Agneepat, Dhoom 2, Guzarish, Koi mil gaya and jodha akbar. He is simply the best.

  • OMG!! My list of Hrithik’s best performances is exactly the same!! He is the best actor after SRK,Aamir..along with Ranbir

  • Thank you Deepak… Dont you think Guzaarish is Hrithik’s very best? I just love him a LOTTT :D

  • @Sunidhi Yes..guzaarish is one of his very best performances..he is a very good actor..SRK is my favourite but i also like Hrithik..

  • @Deepak, I like SRK too. He’s cute in romantic roles and very charming. But Hrithik is my all time favorite from Kaho Na Pyaar Hai days :D I was so crazy after the films released, now that film doesnt even come in my Top 5.. hehehe

  • Very good list.. He was very good in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara also…. but Farhan Akhtar had a better written role (obvious when he was the writer and his sister was director). But it’s a super-hit to Hrithik’s credit so doesnt matter.

    And I so agree with Indicine that Lakshya is inspiring. I myself have the dvd and watch it so many times. Beautiful movie… dont know how it flopped :(

  • @Sunidhi Haha..i think Hrithik is probably the 2nd best actor in heart touching or emotional scenes after Shahrukh..happy to know u like SRK :)

  • Some beautiful pics. Nice memories watching KMG in theatre in 2003. What a performance. My favourite.

  • @Indicine: First time you have given a great list with which I agree 100%
    An actor – Only one word is sufficient to define him. He is not a superstar, not a king, not tiger, not perfectionist. Guy is in the news only for his acting and that’s what I like about him.

  • @Indicine-the biggest question in bollywood right now is what are the upcoming movies of Hrithik after Krrish-3? I have heard some of his projects including YRF,SLB films,immortals of meluha,and Paani.What are possibilities of those projects?

  • tej, Bol Bachchan prediction is coming up in a few minutes, stay tuned.

    Sanal, that’ll be published on Saturday. We like to have a gap of few days between such articles.

    Joy, Karan Johar has denied approaching Hrithik for Immortals of Meluha. He hasn’t signed any films, but lots of rumours as he will be free after the shooting of Krrish is complete.

    @everyone else.. Thanks for the positive feedback :)
