Stars:Amitabh Bachchan,Abhishek Bachahan,Vidya Balan,Arundhati Naag
I feel I am blessed to have seen this movie.There some movies that make us realize that good cinema is something more than what we see regularly and this one is brilliant.Infact brilliant is an understatement.
The plot is brilliant ,Auro(Amitabh Bachchan)is a 12 year old who has progeria, which makes his body of a 70 year old who lives with is mother Vidya(Vidya Balan)and grandmother Bum(Arundhati Naag). His father Amol Arte(Abhishek Bachchan) is a politician but he does not know that he has a son.The plot is exceptionally treated and the direction is super.The movie is Auro's journey in the last years of his life.Its one of a kind movie .
The characters are brilliantly carved out from the main protagonist Auro to his friends Vishnu.whatever i may say but it all be just so less,Amitabh Bachchan a man who was born to be great but with this performance he touches immortality.This may be one of his best 5 performance but not the best.Mr.Bachchan lives Auro the way a twelve year boy does.Vidya I think gives her best performance till date as the mother of this kid .She is brilliant as a singlr mom,she shows why she is one of the best actresses of this new millennium.Her bond with her son is one of the high points of the movie.The surprise of the movie is Arundhati Naag who as the Vidya's mother is just exceptional.The family of Auro and his school friends provide Auro a great enviroment to grow,the magic about the movie is the way Auro's disease is treated and delt with.Auro is just a 12 year old and is treated the same way.Abhishek Bachchan delivers good.Junior AB is great though there are few absurd situations he is put into but that can be ignored coz movie is so good.
The moments between Vidya and Auro are so beautiful specially the scene where she tells Auro his fathers name.There moments in the second half between Abhishekh and Mr Bachchan which are so delicately and beautifully shot that I am so impressed by what Balki did to the movie.
The movie has a brilliant script and much better direction ,music and cinematography.Like his last movie Cheeni Kum Balki does a great job .He is one of the best directors in this decade .A director has the potential to make or break a movie and Balki creates magic on screen.Cinematography by PC Sreeram is great ,Illayraja's music is just exceptional.The movie would have been ruined if someone else would have scored but what Illayraja does is the best fit for the movie.
I am blessed and honoured to be witness to such a marvel.If I can give some rating I would have given it 5+ out of 5 but I know I am too small to rate such a movie.
Mr.Amitabh Bachchan I would like to thank you for honoring us with this performance.
The whole movies is brilliant and thank you to each artist and specially to Balki who had the liberty to extend the emotional sadness but he did what was best for the movie.
You will love it and if you dont please please you need to check on you CQ(Cinema Quitotent).The best movie of the year and the one of the best of Hindi Cinema
