It seems like Amitabh Bachchan is not going to put an end to his interest in acting and his service to Bollywood films anytime soon. With the new trend and directors around, the legend is definitely trying different kind of roles to remain relevant in the scene.
The film title which also means "Old! It must be your father" is about an angry old man in between all of the gangsters in Mumbai. Karan (Sonu Sood) is a sincere and rigid police cop who targets the gangsters of Mumbai, therefore the big don of Mumbai, Kabir Bhai (Prakash Raj), does not like this new officer. With that established, Vijju (Amitabh Bachan), a professional sharp shooter and hit man is hired by Kabir to kill Karan. While all this takes place, Karan tries to woo his old college friend Tanya (Sonal Chauhan) and Tanya's friend Amrita (Charmee Kaur) who is trying to figure out the relationship between Vijju and her mother Kamini (Raveena Tandon). What follows next is a mix of kicks, punches, threats, blows and some memorable dialogues.
It is said that wherever Amitabh stands, the queue begins. It's time to queue up for a film that reads like a running commentary on the legend. His performance reveals that age is no bar for acting as the director of the movie has given a perfect screenplay with extremely timely dialogues for the role. Anyone can enjoy the movie as it has some commercial elements to keep audiences glued to their chairs.
The film completely revolves around Amitabh, hence the actor is always at work. His character, his attitude and the dialogue he delivers will remain etched in audiences' memory for a very long time. Raveena Tandon as the actor's besotted bombshell is a blast with her role. Vijay's stunts are stylish, while Amol Rathod's cinematography is well suited for the background score.
Overall, Amitabh fans will be delighted for the legend as well as the film. It's like a feast for Amitabh Bachchan buffs all the way.Cinema Online, 12 July 2011
