With the release of Guzaarish, Hrithik Roshan is suddenly being hailed as one of the generation's finest actors, and not just a posterboy. Fans of Hrithik, however, will justifiably say they always knew it, and that Roshan's acted very strongly lots of times.

So here then, dear reader, is your latest task: We've picked Hrithik's finest performances. You decide which is the absolute best!

Guzaarish

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest film sees Hrithik as a quadriplegic with heart, a spirited former magician who doesn't let his disability get in the way of his uplifting mood. It's a tough performance, and Hrithik emerges very triumphant indeed.

Anurag Basu's Kites might not have set the box office afire, but Roshan recieved plaudits for his performance. Playing a husband-for-hire, Hrithik acted well and looked even better, and his fans couldn't have been happier.

He might not have played the lead, but Zoya Akhtar's insider view of Bollywood gave Roshan a chance to sparkle. Hrithik played an effete, narcissistic version of himself and showed off both comic timing and self-deprecation.

Opinions remain divided on how good a film Ashutosh Gowariker's Jodhaa Akbar really was. But everyone agrees that Hrithik looked convincingly regal enough for the title role. Add to that some restrained acting, and he left us all impressed.

Touted inaccurately as India's first superhero movie, Rakesh Roshan's Krrish borrowed plots from most existing superhero blockbusters. But that wasn't the point here: the film was all Hrithik, and he carried it off with surprising agility.

The first part of Roshan's sci-fi story began with this ET-ripoff which starred him, unbelievably enough, as a mentally challenged schoolkid. It's as melodramatic as can be, but even's Hrithik's hamming here was considered mostly likeable.

Sharing screen space with legends is always hard, and Karan Johar's magnum opus pitted a young Hrithik alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Roshan, thanks perhaps to limited screen-time, did better than the other men in the film.

Vidhu Vinod Chopra's flawed terrorism thriller cast Roshan as a young, easily misled Kashmir youth. Roshan, effortless at dancing and romancing young Preity Zinta, looks out of his depth when battling alongside a battle-hardened Sanjay Dutt, yet there is some raw charm to his missteps.

Most Hrithik-worshippers point to this Khaled Mohammed film as if to show that their hero could always act. Well, it isn't as much 'act' as it is 'look good in checked shirts,' but even that is a skill, clearly.

Roshan skyrocketed to superstardom right with his debut film, an unprecedented, Khan-threatening success. The role was standard Bollywood, but Roshan worked it and that iconic dance step well enough to make it his own, and convince us about it.
