In the era before satellite television, it was common to re-release old movies in theaters. But with more movie channels, their appeal waned. However, some movie buffs who enjoyed the big screen impact were missing them.
Here are all the Big B movies that will hit the silver screen again –
Amitabh Bachchan was a part of this critically acclaimed film along with Shatrughan Sinha and Shashi Kapoor. The movie was based on the tragic incident in Chasnala mine where more than 300 miners died due to flood in the mine. Bachchan plays a merchant navy captain who becomes a miner to forget his tragic past.
Written and directed by Tinu Anand, the film is another memorable film from Bachchan’s Angry-Young-Man era. It is the story of a happy-go-lucky young man who is drawn into the world of crime after a life-changing event.

The film, which was the third highest grosser at the box office in 1978, revolved around the life of a gangster named Don, played by Bachchan. Even though Farhan Akhtar has remade it in two parts starring Shah Rukh Khan, the original movie with Pran and other actors is worth watching.

The film embodies the concept of an ensemble cast as it has six actors playing the roles of Bachchan’s brothers, who are of course the eldest. It stars Hema Malini, Amjad Khan, Ranjita Kaur and Sachin Pilgaonkar, Shakti Kapoor and others in lead roles.
Released in 1975, the film revolves around a girl suffering from pernicious anemia and an alcoholic suffering from depression, who eventually fall in love with each other. The film was later released in 1976 in Telugu starring Jayasudha in the lead role as Jyoti.
The family comedy starring Dharmendra, Sharmila Tagore, Jaya Bachchan and Big B is hailed as a masterpiece. The story is an elaborate prank played on Dharmendra’s brother-in-law Omprakash, a self-assured lawyer and businessman. Despite the high-profile cast, Om Prakash’s performance as an unlikely victim won many hearts.
