    Nishabd - Weird storyline that I haven't seen yet but from the reviews his performance was praised all round..

    Aag - Really shouldn't have been remade but he was the saving grace... was a brilliant Gabbar... sadistic, brutal, unforgiving.

    GTGH - Ain't seen it yet...same as bhootnath

    And most of his newer films are always critically acclaimed by critics if you read them..

    Just face it.. he is still going strong at 66 and is at a level Mithun will never reach..

    you let me p[ose you the same question, if amitabh alone would done the tour do you think it would have been more sucessful?

    just let you know that.. its mithun whe os the first one to started concert..

    and recently last year honestly speaking Mithun came to London Excel for Bengali concert there 2000 people went to his hotel in dockland and made huge crowds.. the people only went to see Mithun.. i can share you the article.. also just to let you know that it was mithun who introduced aamir khan, srk, sunny deol to wembley arena..

    well dude i am not saying amitji is not popular he is.. but mithun also can pull the crowd alone.

    Yes... I think it would have been. When I went to see it the crowd went crazy for Amitabh. He was the main attraction.

    2000 people went to see Mithun. O2 has 20 000 capacity... let's see Mithun fill that.

    i wouldn think so!!! yes mithun has the capability of crowd puller.. any the bengali shows...the cant promote them properly... still they managed to grab audience of mithun, but i am talking about off stage... the ladies, mens children made huge crowd to see glipmse of mithun front of the hotel gate.. the had to call police to control the public...

    brother... in there was show happend in 1993 i still remember, it was big show of bollywood, dilip kumar to amitabh-SRK, aamir khan everyone came-but my friend honestly speaking when Mihtun came to stage everyone was screaming...the show named live 93..

    i still have the vhs copy in my archive.. it was mithun people was dyiing to shake a hand....

    Default Mithun wows the Londoners

    The report:


    The show was on Sunday evening. It is an award ceremony organised by the Bangladeshi’s to promote talents of Bangladesh and UK based film and music industry.

    About 40 actors and singer arrived from Bangladesh and another 25 local artists participated in the ceremony at EXCEL, which is one of the largest auditoriums in London. About 3000 enthusiast attended from various corner of London city.

    The show commenced with a dance item by local group, colourful laser lighting created an illusion of the fantasy world.

    Then the award presentation, and in between the singers and dancers tried to entertain people. Purno Das Baul from Kolkata also created a brief nostalgia with his charming folk tune.

    It took long to present awards. I could, sense audiences agitated, whispering, where is Mithun? Is he here?.....Mithun……Minthun…..

    Fortunately the organisers sensed the danger and made a surprised announcement.
    The very person for whom you all have been waiting impatiently, our beloved Mithun Chakraborty is here……
    The announcer couldn’t complete her sentence, the uproar of the audience perhaps echoed miles away….mithun….mithun…..

    The sound of the orchestra and flashes of light created joys exhilaration.

    A tall figure with giant steps entered on to the stage. Light illuminated the celebrity and the surrounding figures of musician shrunk beyond recognition.
    He approached slowly towards the centre of the stage. His presence reminded the image of Bengal tiger.

    Marginalised, oppressed, in a forging land, desperately holding on to their only precious culture which is severely threatened?
    In a moment like that, the gigantic and powerful symbol of the very struggle still carrying the light of hope.

    His emergence on the stage evoked that complex and suppressed feelings of the British Bengalis. They couldn’t control their emotion. They jumped of the seats and a long standing ovation was the vivid example. It was a unique experience for me to witness such a memorable moment. His lovely smile and warmth of his greeting touched people’s heat within a fraction.

    Dada spoke by heart, “I AM BENGALY AND ONLY BEANGALI’S KNOW HOW TO LOVE. I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME AND WHENEVER YOU CALL I JOIN YOU”

    Next time he came on to the stage and sang 2 songs and people were extremely delighted.

    The reaction of the audience clearly justify the main attraction of the show was only dada, a symbol no one else can replace.

    After the show I had an appointment to meet dada at the hotel to discuss our project further. When I arrived, there were about 200 people waiting for a glimpse of dada.
    It became unmanageable for the hotel authority, they closed the gate.
    I didn’t feel like to take advantage of my position and enter leaving behind those genuine crowed who turned up just to show their respect.

    In an age of stardom, greed and power; here is some one who has managed to create a place in people’s heart. I stood behind and felt proud of being a Bengali and a simple person.

    I was quite overwhelmed by the reaction of people who demonstrated their heart wrenching love and respect for a star that represents the true aspiration of millions around the world.
