Product Description

Vijay Singh Rajput (Amitabh Bachchan) is a dedicated, if eccentric bank-manager, who's served the Vilasrao Jefferson Bank in Bombay's crowded Dawa Bazaar area for a quarter of a century. The problem with Rajput is that he's given to uncontrollable rages - anyone who's caught shirking his duty or fiddling the procedures is beaten to a pulp. Well, this happens once too often and Rajput is given the pink slip by a petrified management. He promptly plots a diabolical revenge - a foolproof heist that will baffle the best brains in the world. He zeroes in on three blind men, Vishwas Prajapati (Akshay Kumar), Arjun Verma (Arjun Rampal) and Ilyaas (Paresh Rawal) - they have an unbeatable alibi, their blindness. To train them, he gets Neha Srivastava (Sushmita Sen), a teacher of the visually-impaired, by the simple expedient of kidnapping her little brother. Rajput remains in the background, supervising the training and the trainees don't know that he's around at all. Except Vishwas, whose infallible sixth sense kicks in, telling him there's someone lurking in the shadows. Training over, the heist is carried out but things don't go entirely as planned..

About the Actor

Born under the Libran sun sign, Amitabh Bachchan celebrates his birthday on 11th October. He was born in 1942 in Allahabad, as Amitabh Harivansh Srivastav to Dr.Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan. His father was a well known poet. Bachchan was his pen name. When Amitabh entered the film industry he replaced Srivastav with Bachchan. He was initially christened Inquilab but this was later changed to Amitabh that means limitless lustre, which is so apt. Ajitabh is his younger brother.

Bachchan studied in Allahabad at Jnana Pramodhini and Boys High School. He also put in a few years at Sherwood College in Nainital and Kirori Mal College. He holds a double degree in M.A. He married his co-star Jaya Bhaduri of the Guddi fame on 3rd June 1973 and they have two children Shweta and Abhishek. The latter is also an actor, married to Aishwarya Rai.

In 1969, Bachchan made his debut with ""Saat Hindustani"", which won him the National Film Award for Best Newcomer. After this came movies like ""Reshma Aur Shera"", ""Parwana"" and ""Anand"" in 1971. He made a huge impact with his performance in Hrishikesh Mukherjees ""Anand"" alongside Rajesh Khanna as a despondent doctor, winning the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award. In 1972 he appeared in movies like ""Sanjog"", ""Bansi Birju"", ""Ek Nazar"" and also narrated ""Bawarchi"".

1973 saw significant development in Bachchan's career when director Prakash Mehra cast him in the leading role for the film ""Zanjeer"" as Inspector Vijay Khanna. In 1974, Bachchan made several guest appearances in films such as ""Kunwara Baap"" and ""Dost"", before playing a supporting role in the highest grossing film of that year, ""Roti Kapda Aur Makaan"". Released on 15 August 1975, was ""Sholay"", which became the highest grossing film of all time in India. Bachchan had now consolidated his position in the industry and from 1976 through to 1984 would receive an unprecedented number of Filmfare Best Actor Award Awards and nominations.

In 1984, Amitabh took a break from acting and briefly entered politics. In 1988, Bachchan returned to films, playing the title role in Shahenshah, which was a box office success due to the hype of Bachchan's comeback. In 2000, Indian Television audience stuck to the television at 9 when Amitabh Bachchan hosted 'Kaun Banega Crorepati?'!

Bachchan has won 3 National Awards, 7 Lifetime Achievement Awards and innumerable other awards and International Honors and Recognition.

Format: DVD
Amitabh Bachchan in a deliciously conniving negative role plays Vijay Singh Rajput the head of security at a quiet but prestigious bank in Mumbai. He prides himself on the work that he does there and is one of those sort of over-worked and under-paid types. One day, he catches an employee cheating an old customer out of her savings and beats the living daylight out of the culprit. He leaves the man near dead, causing his co-workers to question whether he over-reacted to the issue at hand. This causes the bank to let go of Rajput as an employee, further infuriating him as he had put in a lot of time, years, efforts, blood, sweat and tears into making sure the bank was secure.
Alone at home one day, with nothing else to do, he devises a plot to rob the bank from the inside out, using three blind men whom he soon hires to teach the bank a lesson. Vishwas Prajapati, Arjun Verma, & Ilias (played by Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal and Paresh Rawal respectively) are the three he chooses and abducts the young brother of Neha Srivastav (played by a very matronly Sushmita Sen) in order to get Neha to agree to train the men in his stead. Blink and you'll miss Bipasha Basu in a cameo as Raina Vishwas's girlfriend. And Kashmira Shah makes a special appearance in the item number 'Chalka Chalka.' Rampal, Rawal and Kumar are especially hilarious a the dynamic bank robbing trio and Rawal is especially hilarious. The chemistry amongst the men is superb, even if the pairing of Sen and Rampal wasn't particularly great. The star of the show is clearly Bachchan who handles this negative role with unmatched finesse. A must see!
