Thumbs up Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap: Angry Old Man Back with a Bang!!

Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap: Angry Old Man back with a Bang!!



Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap is loud but flamboyant

Self-promotion seems to have got a new medium, films. Whereas a Salman Khan is Wanted or Ready, the superstar of Hindi cinema is the Baap (call him buddah at your own peril)!

Before the credits role, director Puri Jagannadh thanks the Big B for inspiring an entire generation that grew up watching his movies, dedicating Bbuddah… to the man himself. We couldn’t agree less. Bbuddah is a Big B show all the way, loud, flamboyant, and effervescent with an energy that comes only from a man of his stature.

But did he really need this kind of a PR exercise to assert his supremacy? You decide.

Gangster-turned-pub owner in Paris, Viju (Bachchan) returns to Mumbai, we’re told, on a mission. The purpose of this mission becomes increasingly difficult to comprehend as a juicy twist at the interval nullifies this purpose.

The second half is built around this twist, picking up pace, and bolstered by slick action sequences along the way. The enviously stylish Viju has an eyewear collection to die for. Bbuddah… is at best a 2-hour advertising campaign for Mr Bachchan.

Tollywood director and producer Jagannadh’s tribute is void of story, and with a paper-thin plot like this only works because of Bachchan’s over-powering screen presence. We’re not surprised. There’s even a medley of old Bachchan songs (Pan Banaraswala, Ke Pag Ghungroo Baandh, Rang Barse & Saara Zamaana) packaged as ‘Go Meera Go’ by musicians Vishal-Shekhar. Everybody involved in the project is paying a tribute to Bachchansaab, including the man himself.

“Hum jahaan khade hote hain, line wahi se shuru ho jaati hai,” is among the unimpressive lines Viju delivers.

Exactly! The good lines are scattered, and not memorable either. The superhero saves young women from eve-teasers, packs a punch till they’re flat on the ground, cracks a joke or two and even shows his tender side when dealing with estranged wife Sita (Hema Malini).

The writing isn’t strong, nor are the characters. In a film starring the multi-faceted Bachchan, it’s a daunting task for any actor to stand out. Sood as ACP Karan manages this with ease, confidence and panache.

He beats the bad guys up, woos a girl, and even makes promises of cleaning up the kachra of crime, much like our title hero. Wonder why we aren’t seeing him in many films. South Indian actor Raj’s goonda act is perfect, impressive and amusing, in that order.

Chauhan as Sood’s love interest isn’t interesting enough. She can’t emote, let alone act. Her friend Amrita, played by Kaur, on the contrary overacts, just like her mother Kamini (Raveena Tandon). Raveena, why, just why a cameo like this? You deserved better. We did too.

A lot in Bbuddah… is loose, vague and unnecessary, like the Bs and Ds in the title.

Duniya mein do kism ke log hote hain, ek jo Bachchan ke fans hote hain aur doosre jo aisi filmo mein koi sense nahi dekhte hai.

You decide which part of the duniya you’re part of. We love the angry young man of the 70s and 80s. Bachchan saab, aaj khush toh bahut hoge tum, but this angry, wanna-be buddah does not make us feel the same.

Mega star with Big-B!!

Amitabh watches 'Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap' with Chiranjeevi
Reshma Kelkar Dhabolkar, TNN | Jul 1, 2011, 01.15pm IST
Amitabh Bachchan on Thursday visited several parts of Hyderabad to promote his film Bbuddah ... Hoga Terra Baap. The actor grabbed the opportunity to meet his old friend and Southern Megastar Chiranjeevi during the special screening of Bbuddah.

"Oh the joy of sitting in a theatre in Hyderabad with the great Chiranjeevi and watching BHTB," said the actor after meeting Chiranjeevi after a long time. It is also believed that Amitabh had a long chat with Chiranjeevi and expressed his wish to work with him.

Big B reveals he loved watching Bbuddah with his Hyderabad fans, who clapped, screamed and whistled while watching his film. Being confident about the film Big B said, "Simply overwhelmed by the reception in Hyderabad as I come in by the evening to a special screening of BHTB. It's Puri Jaggannath's territory and the crowds, the reactions just so special. If BHTB succeeds it will be my first solo hit after 2 decades, and that too by a Telugu film director."

Bbuddah... is releasing today along with Delhi Belly, which is seen as a tough competitor.

ironic that Big Bs genes do not seem to have been inherited down the line. I dont reckon abhishek is a poet either so, its not even as if the genes have skipped a generation.

Interestingly he had the same arrogance in Toofan and Shahenshah... Both super flops

Buddha hoga tera baap

watched in a camping ground with wi-fi

friend brought the laptop along on a 5 day picnic and watch so many movies

pyaar ka panchnama,
delhi belly
double dhamaal
bhejafry 2 ( I didnt ... for me it was a repeat and I cant handle this part 2)
shagird ( copy of ab tak chhappan )
Dharti ( punjabi ...just for the sardarni among us )

but Buddha hoga tera baap .... was awesome.

Amitabh proved it again that he has more iron than any other hero in the industry.

Sonu Sood is ACP in mumbai and AB is his father who was living in Paris for a while after he had left Hema ( his wife ) and son Sonu sood for his interest in underworld. Sonu is good cop so goons are after him and try to ill him many times and every time AB comes to rescue ....

watch it on a saturday night... I m buying DVD for this ... will look good in my collection.

3.5 star of 5.

P.S. Somebody please add the tags.

Re: Buddha Hoga Tera Baap

swami,

I wish to publicly apologize for chiding you over a thread merge. I am sorry that I did not realise your thread was much earlier than mine.

I wish to really say sorry and I will keep in mind next time that I do not throw childish tantrums.

Hope you will forgive this lapse of mine.

Thanks,
Sunit

Sorry I cannot accept your request to delete this response. I genuinely felt sorry for lashing out at you. So this stays. I dont mind eating my own humble pie.
