Irrfan Khan
Indian Wire

While Irrfan has given the audiences some phenomenal performances over the years, he also stepped out of his comfort zone when. Today, on his birth anniversary, we decided take a look at Irrfan’s films which were equally terrific and enjoyable.

Life Of Pi

This movie is based on the novel authored by Yann Martel which was published in 2001. Its story revolves around a guy called Pi who is stranded in the middle of an ocean and fight to survive. He is accompanied by a hyena and a Bengal tiger on the same boat as him. The movie has an IMDB rating of 7.9.

The Lunchbox

This film revolves around the tiffin boxes being exchanged by mistake by the dabbawalla in Mumbai. This causes confusion as Irrfan Khan’s character receives a note in his lunchbox but he does not know who has written them. The movie has an IMDB rating of 7.8. This is one of Irrfan Khan’s most acclaimed films.


Vishal Bhardwaj’s Maqbool was one of Irrfan’s earliest films. The actor played a supporting and while the film was an adaptation of Willian Shakespeare’s tragic novel Macbeth, Irrfan viewed it as a love story.

Qarib Qarib Single

This romantic comedy saw Irrfan opposite actress Parvathy Thiruvothu who made her Hindi debut with this film. Irrfan as Yogendra Kumar Devendra Nath Prajapati aka Yogi was all things goofy as he and Jaya set out on an adventurous quest. The film intrigued many, found an audience and impressed critics to a certain extent but did not do well at the box office. However, Irrfan and Parvathy’s performances were a winner.

Hindi Medium

This movie tells the story of a rich couple. They want their daughter to get admission in the best English medium school. The lengths they go to for the same is hilarious to watch. The movie has an IMDB rating of 7.8.


Not exactly a film that screams love story, but Piku saw Irrfan opposite Deepika Padukone. This film is a subtle love angle that formed one of the many layers of Shoojit Sircar’s film. Their banter, walks through the streets of Kolkata and hilarious ride from Delhi to the city of Joy is a treat that never gets old. The magic here is in the small moments.
