The Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor is given by Filmfare as part of its annual Filmfare Awards for Hindi films. The award is given by the chosen jury of critics assigned to the function, and is a derivation from a previous award known as the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance, which was established in 1991 and was initially a special award given for a performance by either sex. In 1998, it was officially divided into two separate categories to acknowledge both male and female actors individually. The actors are awarded without prior nomination for a performance.

The record of the maximum number of wins in this category is shared by four actors (in chronological order): Manoj Bajpai, Shahrukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor.
