Shamitabh seems like a rendering for all who dream out there "Hai! What if the Pakistani and Indian cricket team combined forces? What a super team it could have been, na", also an answer to "Chalo, you drive and I will navigate. Joint forces! What can go wrong?"

 

SHAMITABH the film is a two and half journey into telling you what exactly can go wrong.

Ek mayan dou talwar 

 

Dhanush plays a film crazy, brooding jaisastrong, silent types. Emphasis on the silent.

Amitabh B plays his Anthony walafilmogprahy and turns up the baritone.

There is Akshara Haasan which is like watching Kamal Haasan with blue eyes and we have her sister singing for her; which keeping in mind the film is quite, quite meta.

And the rest of "Bolly"wood cameos just to make a lot of in-jokes.

Arey so much fun hai yaar; film deewano par pikchar hai. Let the games begin.

But where yara? There are so many informational presentations to go through. About voice engineering, making cup'a' soup for all who are even egg fail in kitchen, choosing the best washing machine, ordering online, and then Assistant Director never a Director sahibahas to give a spot presentation on the ABC of "there is no I in team". Whew! time hi nahi mila to enjoy the beautiful scenery? 

Sorry ji, SHAMITABH is an experiment on taking hammer tongs and one plier to Dhanush, Amitabh, Rajnikant ki story and all who arrive one morning on a bus starry eyed about making it in filmi nagarya. But see, you will take them all injar pinjar apart, curious so curious about the inner workings of genius, lets play with his charm, that one's grit, NOW STARRING AMITABH SIR's LARYNX...and then how are you going to put it all together., hainji?

Dreams of a super super star SHAMITABH--talented new comer ki hot looks , and The Voice. That is if they join forces and put into operation the co-operation and no ego.


But yara, how can cooperation work in India; Gandhi Ji bhi tou kehte rahe Non Cooperation Non Cooperation. 

Uh ho!

Sorry hogaya. (Also the name of AD sahiba's dream project)

Sorry hai ji; this film left me wishing I WAS watching Lifebuoy, Thappad, and the half a dozen other films they take a mickey of in this film.

But then...two and a half hours of Amitabh.That is anytime better than a film that doesnt have Amitabh, right?

Theek hai. But so so exhausting. Also so much education, yara.

And for all the dreamers out there who still dream of a Haiii, what if..

One cannot imporve on perfection, OK. Joint forces ka plan cancel.
