Positive Aspects:

It is most likely Amitabh Bachchan is one of the finest on-screen characters in history of Indian film. Anyway on the off chance that you felt that the 71 year old has parcel his touch, then reconsider as Big B demonstrates that he has still got it in him to make the swarm hoot and cheer for him. Amitabh is superb as plastered voice craftsman who accepts that he has a greater turn in Shamitabh’s superstardom. The veteran performer is taking care of business, slurring a portion of the most clever line I have heard lately with extraordinary comic timing. On the off chance that you thought Dhanush was better than average in Raanjhanna, in Shamitabh, Dhanush will demonstrate his extent and bore as an on-screen character. With no dialogs to mouth, Dhanush acts out with so much force such that he lights up screen with his alluring vicinity.

Akshara Haasan makes a noteworthy introduction, playing her piece of middle person between the two with extraordinary conviction. R Balki merits a gesture of congratulations for telling an exceptional story which is witty, clever, philosophical and charming in the meantime. Picturisation of Piddly melody will abandon you in parts. The light exchange and leg pulling in the middle of Dhanush and Big B made my day. At the outset, Amitabh’s voice from Dhanush’s mouth sounded odd however later turned out to be very enthralling. Dhanush and Amitabh supplement one another truly well, as I can’t generally pick who performed better. Since Big B is acquainted as Shamitabh’s valet Robert with rest of the world, it was a truly decent signal from the producers to put all the valet’s names first at last credits. Be prepared for a peak that would provide for you a gentle stun. Credit to dialog essayists for relegating such clever one liners that are peppered all through the film.

Negative Aspects:

I truly can’t pinpoint what’s awful. Anyhow in the event that I truly needed to say something terrible, then the film’s initial 5 mins where all the industry wallas acclaim Shamitabh at a celebrity lane capacity is minimal dull and silly. Peak left me shocked and made me think about whether it was truly important for the movie producer to end the film at such a note, as it riches the state of mind for a short minute.


It is an irregularity in Indian silver screen to discover a film that is both very enthralling, interesting and clean in the meantime. Sponsored by some powerhouse exhibitions of Big B and Dhanush, Shamitabh is one of the finest movies not long from now. Don’t miss it. Help yourself out. Go and watch Shamitabh right way.
