So before that, let us look at some of the influential films of Manoj Bajpayee in this genre
Directed by Ram Gopal Varma, Satya was the big break for Manoj Bajpayee. Based on the stories of Mumbai’s underworld, the film received appreciation from critics and audiences alike.
The film was considered one of the most realistic depictions of Indian gangsters and paved the way for future ‘gangster films’ in India. Manoj Bajpayee, as gangster Bhiku Mhatre stole the show and became the poster boy of gangster movies.
You must have known this dialogue. After all, “आखिर मुंबई का किंग कौन” ? Bhiku Mhatre
Whatever I praise, Manoj Bajpayee Sir seems to be doing all the work. This gun and gang saga introduced the world to Manoj Bajpayee’s stellar performance (and he won a National Award for the same) and made him a dance icon in (Sapno Mein hai?).
2. Gangs of Wasseypur (2012)
Gangs of Wasseypur was a dark crime drama, with an ensemble cast including Manoj Bajpayee, Richa Chadha, Reema Sen, Piyush Mishra, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Pankaj Tripathi, Huma Qureshi, and Tigmanshu Dhulia, among others.
Based on the vendetta between Dhanbad’s coal-mafia and three crime families, Gangs of Wasseypur was a cult hit of 2012. The ensemble cast of such talented actors could not turn down the brilliance of Manoj Bajpayee, who came across as Sardar Khan in the film.
3. Shootout at Wadala (2013)
Donning the cap of a gangster once again, Manoj Bajpayee replaced Zubair Imtiaz Haksar for director Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala (2013). Manoj Zubair was nothing short of phenomenal in the film and once again proved that no one does him better when it comes to crime dramas and crime-thrillers.
4. The Family Man Season 1 & 2 (2019 and 2021)
Manoj Bajpayee transitioned from the role of a gangster to a catch-all, playing a senior analyst in the fictional Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell (TASC) in Amazon Prime Video’s original series The Family Man.
Directed by Raj and DK, Srikkanth is seen fighting terrorists on the field while hiding the true nature of his job from his two children. The gripping storyline and power-packed action sequences are fueled by Manoj’s acting, which fits the character perfectly.
The new season, which starts on June 4, 2021, will see Srikant Tiwari fighting an even more deadly enmity.
5. Silence Can You Hear It? (2021)
Starring Manoj Bajpayee, Prachi Desai, and Arjun Mathur, Maun Can you hear it? It is a thriller film that revolves around the mysterious disappearance of a woman. Manoj played the role of a police inspector who was tasked with finding the missing woman. The murder mystery, currently streaming on Zee5, will give you goosebumps and keep you on the edge of your seats with its twists and turns. Manoj Bajpayee shines as ACP Avinash Verma in this film.
We cannot limit Manoj Bajpayee’s talent to just five films. So apart from the titles mentioned above, don’t miss to check out his other stellar performances in Naam Shabana, Aiyaary, and Mrs. Serial Killer and watch the new season of The Family Man from June 4, 2021, on Amazon Prime Video.
