Critics Rating
Audience Review

Shamitabh movie revolves around two individuals, who come together for a purpose, but drift apart due to their ego.

The 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 of.

    Shamitabh 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..

    R. Balki, who had earlier directed the legendary Amitabh Bachchan in two of the path breaking films viz., CHEENI KUM and PAA, has really tried his best to continue this 'tradition' with SHAMITABH as well. Even though Balki has tried his level best ..

    The performances is what makes Shamitabh engaging, there are moments in the film that seem to drag and drive home the ego-clashes again and again. It gets tiring and the climax gets unnecessary convoluted.

    Expectations: R.Balki debuted in our Hindi cinema with such an unusual subject featuring a love story of a middle aged girl with an old man. Many films based on such subjects were rejected by the audiences, but 'Cheeni Kum' was widely appreciated and loved by cinema lovers as the movie was very high on the conviction factor. His next film 'Paa', also had an unusual theme and tried to achieve something which seemed impossible in our Hindi cinema. Thanks to the unusual themes these films have found a great posterity in the library of good Hindi cinema. R.Balki's next film 'Shamitabh' is a story of a superstar actor whose voice is of an old man and displays the ego clashes between them.

During his struggling days, he meets an assistant director Akshara (Akshara Hassan), who recognizes the true talent of Daanish and decides to help him with a unique technology, where he would be able to talk and persevere his
