The first thing that came into my mind was ‘Paa’ since I’ve known this movie. Everywhere there were some comparisons made regarding the plot and Amitabh’s acting. But somewhere it was known that from a different director, this should be different. Fortunately, it was distinct in all possible good ways. The plot was very simple, but at the same time, it was intelligent. There were no pieces left in maneuvering the movie and each part was brilliantly taken care of. Certainly very nicely and cutely executed story. There were nice dialogues, enriching movie flow but after the first half, the only thing that bothered was the motive behind the movie. In the end, it was found out that there was not much motive but the journey itself was the crux of the movie. On top of it, the ending was icing on the cake that was certainly delicious.

Amitabh Bachchan. Ohh I’m sorry, SIR AMITABH BACHCHAN. I know it doesn’t matter but when Sir will be used in maggy reviews, it will refer to only this amazing actor. Sir’s acting yet again made me fell in love with him. The way the character was caught and the way each and every dialogue and movement was performed was remarkable. Sir took the meaning of “Giving life to the character” to a different level. To a level that only by seeing the character’s clothes, you can imagine sir and the whole story of the movie. Not to forget Irrfan and Deepika who amazingly supported throughout. Irrfan had his share of amazing performance and unquestionably was bang on all through.

Shoojit yet again proved that he can deliver different, strong and entertaining movies every time. After Vicky Donor, expectations will always be high from him and he stood out proudly this time. I’ll give him full credit for making the overall movie fascinating. Certainly one of the best-directed movie in recent times.

Background score was not used much but was very charming whenever used.

Overall, a wonderfully directed amazing journey of a man where the Man kills it yet again.
