A few days back I was watching Coolie on television and I was trying to figure out if that film still works for me. Except a few scenes here & there the film still holds and entertains. While watching Bbudahh I felt that I can live with that angry young man in place of this wannabe tribute to it.
Viju (tribute to Agneepath and various Amitabhs film where he was named Vijay) is a gangster back in Mumbai after being in Paris for a long time. One important job has bought him back. So in the film in the course of doing that job he also makes two hearts ( Sonu Sood & Sonal Chauhan) meet, re ignites with an old flame Kammo ( Raveena Tandon) , every time I hear her name in the film mera dil le gayi o kammo kidhar starts playing in my head, He also spend precious minutes talking to a girl who is Raveenas daughter in the film at a coffee shop ( now I know why top in town in Oshiwara was shut down for a while) ,he makes amends with his wife and also does thoda action and thoda Jackson as he had promised.
The director wanted to present Amitabh Bachchan as an angry young man again and must have hurriedly written a story around the action sequences and the dance numbers because besides the tribute the film is completely haphazard with sudden shift in tracks & scenes. It looks more of a compilation . The tributes are in plenty like in place of Mukhri standing on a stool ( Amar Akbar Anthony) there is woman doing that here. There is Raveena Tandon over acting to the hilt because character ki demand thi but it feels like she has walked out of from a Govindas film set. Her screaming and acting like a 20 year old makes the girl playing her daughter look like a better actor. The best part of the film is the climax. Prakash Raj makes the climax a laugh out loud fest with his awesome dialogue delivery. If you loved him in Wanted you will like him here. He is in the same space. The only way you could survive this uncool film is because Big B makes everything look cool around him. Every time he is on screen its a paisa vasool moment. It is a film made for him and should be watched only for him.
Final few words: Bbudahh hoga tera baap is best enjoyed with people who whistle, clap, scream, shout every time Big B is on screen and who also happens to be his fan.
Rating : **
Ticket meter: worth any amount for a Bachchan fan.
