After 2 weeks running in the theatre, the hall I went to watch it in was still houseful. That says it all, I guess!
People, it is a beautiful movie. The story revolves around a 102 YO father, Dattatray Vakharia (Amitabh Bachchan), and his 75 YO son, Babulal (Rishi Kapoor). The father wants to bring his son, who is stuck in a morose lifestyle, back to life. He makes him complete some challenges in an attempt to make him live the life fully before he finally dies.
The performances of veterans like Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor are so powerful that you don’t need a sexy, young lady in the script, an item number or any other typical attractions to keep you on your seats! The only other important or neutral character is Dhiru (Jimit Trivedi). He has done an amazing job while sharing the screen space with such brilliant actors. Being true to his character, he simply balances the story and helps it unfold at its own pace.
In fact, other than the refreshing concept, the movie’s best things are the impeccable comic timings of the actors and its conventional unfolding of the characters. The characters may seem like caricatures from the real life but that adds to the charm of the narrative.
I am not giving any more spoilers.
Just go watch!
