Buddha Hoga Tera Baab Movie Review – Buddah Hoga Tera Baap Review – Buddha Hoga Tera Baab Rating, Hindi Movie Review: Big B Amitabh Bachchan goes back to seventies and eighties and does that ‘don’t give a damn’ kind of character in Bbuddah. As director Puri Jagannath said this is a tribute to all his ‘angry young man’ roles. The film totally lives up to the title and how, read on Buddha review…
ACP Karan (Sonu Sood) catches a goon who explodes two bombs in a crowded area. Kabir (Prakash Raj) who is the man behind those blasts want to eliminate Karan. He wants to hire a hit man to do the needful. Then enters Vijju (Amitabh) who tries to kill Karan but couldn’t as the latter is alert always. The time arrives and Viju has to kill Karan on that day. Then comes a twist in the tale which completely turns over everything upside down. See the film to know what it is.
Puri Jagannadh has successfully made many films in Telugu applying the same formula. This is just another subject in the lines of Pokiri with an old man leading the show. When a 65 year old man does Pokiri what it looks like is Buddha for you.
Although the storyline is wafer thin Puri did manage to pull off few twists successfully and kept the audience engaged all the time. But the real man for this film is none other than Mr. Big B. He is the life and soul of this film. He carried off his role with élan. Amitabh fans will completely fall in love with this film and watch it again and again as they get their matinee idol doing all the nakhras from the good olden days.
First half of the film is passable without any story. Some scenes look ridiculous but the purpose behind those scenes is revealed in the second half. The real gist of the story lies in the second half and it is where the director excelled. There are some funny scenes, good one liners and also some sentiment. Amitabh, Prakash Raj conversation in the climax is fun to watch.
Puri Jagannadh has used popular dialogs and few scenes from his Telugu films. Telugu audience may not find them fresh but Bollywood audience will thoroughly enjoy those scenes and dialogs. On a whole Buddha is a paisa vasool entertainer which is mainly targeted at Big B fans and masses.
Amitabh Bachchan is a treat to watch. Right from the scene in which he enters clad in a white dress and a yellow muffler to the scene where he exits as Hema Malini utters ‘Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap’, Big B stole the show. He has excelled in every scene. It is a one man show all the way. One liners written for his character are hilarious.
Hema Malini is still the dream girl. She did a neat job. Raveena is over the top. Sonu Sood is confident. He did a splendid job in the scenes which he confronts Amitabh. No one except Prakash Raj can make such an ordinary character look strong on screen. Sonal Chauhan is cute. Charmi scores few brownie points. She has some light moments which will have you in splits. Subba Raju did a very good job. Rajeev Mehta and Shahwar Ali are fine.
Dialogs have Puri’s mark written all over. Most of the dialogs were funny and had that punch. Music by Vishal Shekar is fine. Anoop Rubens did a good job with the background score. Editing and cinematography are standard like in every Puri Jagannadh’s film. Production values are top notch.
Bollywood audience are craving for masala and the huge revenues that the films like Dabangg, Golmaal 3 and Ready films have collected proves that fact. Puri Jagannadh is known for his commercial mass masala films and he entered Bollywood at the right time. He announces his entry with none other than Big B and he will surely leave a mark in B town. From hereon Bollywood can cherish Puri’s entertainers.
– Big B
– Masala elements
– Wafer thin story
– Very little content in first hour
Final Word: Bbuddah – Watch it for Big B.
Box office predictions: Buddha is made with a very less budget and it will surely be a golden duck for its producers. It will do well in single screens and has to sustain the heat of Delhi Belly at plexes.
