Tabassum Fatima Hashmi, fondly known as Tabu, is perhaps the most versatile actress to date in the Bollywood industry. Her acting skills and out of the box roles she picks have positioned her in such a way she is always at the top, no matter who her competition is. From Machis to Andhadhun, here is looking at some truly brilliant performances by Tabu:
Based on Operation Blue Star, an incident which shook Punjab in the year 1984, Machis saw Tabu shine like never before. Playing the character of Veeran, a victim of the operation, Tabu showed how Punjabi women dealt with the aftermath of the violence . Her performance was so amazing, it won her the National Award for the Best Actress that year!
While Machis saw the fearless side of Tabu, Virasat saw her determined side. Playing the role of a housewife who stood by her husband through thick and thin, this movie saw another side of the actress. Both critics and audiences lauded her performance in the movie and awarded her with the Filmfare Choice Awards for Best Actress during the year (1997) the movie released. If that isn’t affirmation, then what is?
Another movie where the role seems to have been tailor made for Tabu, Astitva saw this actress play the role of an extremely confident woman. Searching for her identity while having an affair with a music teacher, this film saw the actress play an extremely relatable character. What one realises with this role is that it takes more than just good looks to sell a character, or a story.
- Chandini Bar
Remember Mumtaz? An iconic actress during her time, it goes without saying Tabu was perhaps the best actress to play her in a movie. Touted to be one of the most memorable roles by the actress, Chandini Bar not only saw Mumtaz in a new light, it saw Tabu shine as well. Winning four National Awards, this movie set the benchmark for all future films.
An adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Haider saw Tabu give the term tragedy a new look. Her portrayal of Hamlet’s mother was so nicely done, it made you sympathise with her rather than hate her.
With so many great movies to her name, it is hard to pick just one favourite. What is your favourite role? Comment and let us know!
