There is a quote by Swedish film-maker Ingmar Bergman: ‘No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight of the soul.’ I feel this quote goes hand in hand with Naseeruddin Shah. He is an amazing actor who always puts passion and respect into his movies. He turned 71 today. We wish him a very happy birthday!!
His versatility makes him so talented and allows him to take up any part. Be it romance, comedy, drama, thriller, psychological, and he is capable.
Most of Naseeruddin Shah movies contain great messages and mighty rant morales—a must-see during the weekend streaming. Here are some of the old classics and the exciting modern movies. You can stream these during the weekend and watch with your family. Or even alone, when you are eating, etc.
You will not be bored if you watch any of these top movies by Naseeruddin Shah.
