I am having some eye infection, so I am not sure if I will be able to write soon enough, but if it is not a big problem, I will be back soon enough, I think it is getting better.


THE RETURN OF BIG B


Amitabh Bachchan made his return after such a long interval in this movie, but he seems to be still thinking that he is still an young man in this movie. He actually looked extremely annoying while acting with the actresses almost half his age.


Acting in this movie may have been the worst mistake he ever made in his life which made some of his fans turn away from him with anger. Didn't he get another oportunities that he went for role? I have heard that he plays a similiar role in Shehenshah which I have never seen, but what was his age then?


Nope, he has been a prominent figure in the Bollywood that he can simply sit at home that lots of opportunities are to come his way for sure - no doubt about that. But still this man acted just like he was more youthful than ever!


As this is a crap movie, however he is to work, the movie is not going to reach anywhere - no good plot, no interesting songs and no solid dialogues nor any comedy made with some brain. I saw this movie on Zee Cinema last week, oh my God I am flattered! Can anything be as ridiculous as this?


I am still to find something.....I will let you know if there is going to be anything more annoying that this one. Ab Ke Baras was so great compared to this one - it atleast had Amrita Rao.....TV channels are really showing any movie they get.....poor viewers.....what will they do if there is nothing else to watch in TV - watch this and be bored.....


WHAT IS WAITING FOR YOU?


Lal Badshah (Amitabh Bachan) is the hero of the people of his area. He makes enemity with Raghuvaran an underworld king who is played by Raghuvaran, the south Indian actor. Mukesh Rishi plays superintendent of police and the brother of Raghuvaran and Amrish Puri is the father of them and the major villain as usual.


At the same time Amitabh Bachan also plays the role of gis own father in which he looks much better. You can imagine in which role this man will look better at this age. Manisha Koirala plays the role of an insurance agaent who first tries to make him take insurance, later falls in love with her - yuck.


Shipa Shetty plays the role of a lawyer played Shatrughan Sinha who turns from the bad side to the good one as Lal Badshah saves the life of his own daughter even as he is his enemy - some sentiments there too? At the same time the evil planning goes against Big B.....Where will this torture end?


I had been supporting the villains after watching this movie as they suit their roles and does some justice to their selection to hte appropriate roles. So we have to suffer that much less amount of torture from this movie.....


HOW CAN WE ADJUST THIS ONE??


Amitabh Bachan as I said earlier seems to be at the wrong place at the wrong time, same is the case with Manisha Koirala. She keeps on talking nonsense through out the movie. When coming back to the Big B, he seems to be having ridiculous powers - a highly powerful person who is almost unbeatable?


1) Some trouble makers runs after a man with all kinds of sharp weapons. Then Big B jumps in front of them and delivers some dialogues - ''.....yeh Lal Badshah ka illaakaa hai.....'' and they run away. Does he have the special power to hypnotize them so that they runs away or is he a bigger weapon than anything? He is invincible? Even lower budget movies doesn't show nonsense like this.


2) The kidnappers are running after Shilpa Shetty and our hero gets in and stands in front of the opponents coming in gypsies. None of the gypsies manages to hit him. But he has not moved a bit (Let me drive - I can do better than that). He just swings the stick in his hands and the vehicles just gets thrown away as if it has hit some rock or pillar. Watch the vehicles spinning in the air like feather! Quite interesting, isn't it?


Shilpa Shetty looks quite good in the movie even if she some times turns vague, may ne because of seeing the ''youthfullness'' of the hero! Raghuvaran looks great in the movie with some great expressions, just like what he did in Maharaja. I can remember him in some Malayalam movies too. Mukesh Rishi and Amrish Puri makes no mistake in the movie as they got those cruel expressions when needed - great actors they are.


ANYTHING GOOD FOR VIEWING?


You are not going to find anything good in the movie except for some rubbish. If you want to know how low standard a Bollywood movie can reach, watch this one. You will be thinking if a movie with a golden superstar like Amitabh Bachan can lower like this. Murder is not this much a horror.


If you ever happen to come across this movie, close both your eyes as well as the ears so that you will not have to be upset. The songs will make you even more sick. They seems to be following an old style, but they seems to be caught between the earlier era and the latest era that they are a bit confusing and also irritating to hear. All I can say is that Big B managed to waste his abilities in this ridiculous movie.....
