We have always been curious regarding the film industry, be it the actors, behind the scenes facts or about their personal lives. No matter how much the media and journalists reveal it all in the format of gossips and stories, there are a certain aspects we are not aware of.
Shamitabh movie is about that dark side
of film industry that exposes the jealousy of the actors or their
greed for stardom. Now we are not saying it contains real life
stories, but a side of the film industry that we are not aware
The concept of the movie in itself is different and the stars of
the movie have played their parts really well to put across that
concept on the big screen. Amitabh Sinha (Amitabh Bachchan) is an
alcoholic who once had dreams of becoming an actor and making it
big while Danish (Dhanush) is a deaf and mute person who comes from
a small town to Mumbai city with the dreams of becoming a
The two characters are in complete contrast with each other,
what Danish lacks in voice, he makes up for it with his talent and
energy while Amitabh has nothing but his heavy and rich baritone
Debutante Akshara Haasan plays the role of a director who makes
use of a technology from Finland and combines the talents of
Amitabh and Danish to make a perfect recipe for stardom.
The duo give themselves the name of Shamitabh and it's
their chemistry that keeps the audience hooked to the film. Their
bittersweet bond that is topped with jealousy and the greed to
outdo each other.
Their to and fro spats is fun, especially Amitabh's sarcastic
taunts towards Danish like when he says, "This voice will sound
nice even if it came out of a dog!" Danish is no less, he ducks all
these comments well and gives it back in his own way. There are a
lot of satirical scenes on Bollywood as well.
There are no words to describe Amitabh Bachchan's performance
because once you see the movie, you'll realize how there could not
have been better person to pull off the role. Dhanush on the other
hand shows the transformation from the role of a bus conductor to
that of an overnight star with élan. He is simply a delight to
Akshara Haasan too has pulled of the role of a feisty assistant
director well, her father's acting genes are definitely inherited
by her, and we just have to see how well she makes use of
The film may not be perfect from start to finish, come on which
film is! So by that standard there are a lot of times when you feel
the story is dragged or that there are way too much of tug-of-war
moments between lead characters but what makes up for all the minus
points is the riveting performances by the actors in the movie.
R Balki has
directed it well, barring the complicated climax scenes.
Shamitabh is a treat to watch owing to the lead actors
of the film, Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush. They have made the movie
fun and entertaining covering up the film's weak plot. This movie
is a must watch, so book your tickets soon!
