The Lunchbox (2013)

Paan Singh Tomar (2010)

In the film, the actor's performance left everyone stunned when he played the athlete who resorts to arms to exact revenge from the corrupt system and its structures.
Irrfan had to undergo drastic physical transformation and turned into the character entirely.
Another memorable film by Irrfan Khan is "Piku" in which his co-star was Deepika Padukone. In "Piku" Irrfan played the role of an impatient yet resourceful businessman, who brings respite and stability to the protagonist's life. His character in the film is remarkable and supporting as a catalyst in the story.
Life of Pi (2012)
"Life of Pi" is known for its marvellous storytelling and visual mastery. Irrfan Khan brought to life the adult Pi with such perfection that makes the dialogue-heavy moments of the films as captivating as the awe-inspiring visuals.
Life In A Metro (2007)
Irrfan Khan won three awards for his character, Monty in "Life In A Metro." In the film, Irrfan is seen as a socially incompetent guy who is looking for his prospective bride through matrimonial sites. His character grows on the viewers every time we watch the film. His performance in the last scene when he finally goes after his love interest creates a great impact on the minds of the viewers.
