Shamitabh ( 2015)

Cast – Amitabh Bachchan,Dhanush, Akshara Hassan

Director– R Balki

Writer– R Balki

Wish someone had sent this movie to a butcher ‘s table . Something most needed was chop chop chop .

Though the promos gave me an inkling of what was to come but Balki ‘s awesome track record gave me some hope and Amitabh of course .

The story has novelty value , performances are good …but the goodness ends here . It’s a good example of how a new story and good performances are a failure if the screenplay is not gripping enough . The script is too stretched for the plot and the scenes are so unnecessarily stretched that they just test your patience . For the first time in life , I was fearing Amitabh’s scenes as I think the director and editor were so obsessed with him that they failed to say cut . His so famous drunken gibberish failed to strike a chord and so did the hero . So much so that the climax didn’t seem to matter at all .

Wonder what was the editor paid for in this movie ! And such a waste of Amitabh Bachchan !  You might as well go back and watch Cheeni Kum or Paa !
