I have just come out of watching Paa-and to say I have been blown away by the sheer brilliance of Mr Amitabh Bachchan is putting it very very mildly. It is the performance of absolute genius
Amitji as Auro in my mind is the best performance by an actor ever from anywhere and any kind of cinema in the world that i have seen. And i do happen to watch a lot of films
Having recenly worked with Amitji in Rann I know him as an artist and human being of exceptional talent and grace…but words fail me when i try to express my thoughts about his performance as Auro…it is beyond the loftiest praise…a new vocabulary would have to be invented. It is godly
I wasnt so keen on seeing the film from the promos i caught on TV. While it seemed interesting, i expected it to be an arty farty type of movie. If my daughter Kaveri hadnt shown such a keen interest in seeing the film i probably wouldnt have bothered…but she insisted so me and she, my mum and dad we all went.
Having torn a muscle in my lower back last night from a freak fall, i was in excrutiating pain and was all prepared to settle my family in the theatre and return home to my hot water bags and pain releiving gels and tablets. But five minutes into the film I forgot about my pain completely as i lapped up every second of the movie. absorbed in the highs and lows of the films main protagonist
Auro is warm, witty, naughty intelligent and endearing to the core. Every line, every breath, every smile, every movement of the eye and every action just so perfect. So poignant. My favourite being the one of him at the play station…I was so taken in by the charactor i forgot the actor…i laughed and cried with him and my heartbeats merged with Auro
While there were some glitches in the screenplay that made the movie just a notch below fantastic and a tad slow it is a minor gripe.
I have fallen in love with Auro…the mother in me wants to bring him home and hold him close and take care of him, the artist in me wants to touch Amitji’s feet.
I plan to catch another show of the film tomorrow, and then the day after and the day after if i can. Cant wait for the dvd to come out…so i can actually bring Auro home and keep him safe
