Paa Movie Review
Movie Review: Paa; Cast: Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Paresh Rawal, Arundhati Naag; Director: R Balakrishnan; Rating: 4 out of 5.
Well today is the day which all of us were waiting for so long. Paa the most awaited flick released worldwide. Amitabh Bachchan, the star, the grandeur of success playing a 13year old progeric child is a treat to watch. ZANJEER broke the chain of 13 consecutive flops. AGNEEPATH was an experiment which proved worth doing. BLACK broke all barriers and well appreciated by all his critics now comes PAA.
He relives the character. He is one man who has done it all. The prosthetic makeup by Christien Tinsley (The Passion of The Christ) and Dominie Till is absolutely authentic removing every trace of Amitabh Bachchan from Auro and imparting him an absolutely new identity. Without a doubt Amitabh Bachchan deserves all the awards and accolades for his portrayal of Auro. With a new voice, face and body language here is one character of Big B which will undoubtedly stand out in his filmography for being delightfully different and charmingly childish.
.Vidya Balan’s maternal chemistry and her jelling up with Auro being the single mother is truly applaud able. You will be touched with the sting of emotion. Abhishek Bachchan puts in a poised performance as a politician and pal-turned-Paa to Auro. Pratik Katare as Auro’s schoolmate Vishnu gets the funniest one-liners. Arundhati Nag as the grandmother puts in a confident act. Even Paresh Rawal is pleasant in his extended special appearance, much charming that his recent full-length, blown-out, loud comic acts.
The movie is fun filled at the same time it will touch your heart. It has got a story whose messahe is very loud “progeria”. But Balki, the Director of the film has tried to bring out other angle as well like over-enthusiastic media, use of condoms, abortion and the political angle in, he does not sound preachy with it.
So what are you waiting for folks? Go book your ticket now. If you are trying for Sunday I am sure you have to stand in queue for hours! We just hope that it gets the Oscars nomination and becomes the next Slumdog Millionaire. All the very best to the whole unit of PAA.
