The story, the performances and the dialogues work wonders for R Balki’s latest film
After giving us heart stirring films like Cheeni Kum and Paa, director R Balki is back with yet another endearing film with an unlikely combination of Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush. Though Balki and his team did their best to keep the story under wraps, there were multiple rumours in the market about Shamitabh’s plot. Being a Dhanush fan, I was eager to see how does he pull off a role that was first offered to Shah Rukh Khan. And more importantly, leaving the guessing games and rumours aside, I was really intrigued to find out what Shamitabh was all about. And as I stepped out of the theatre at the end, I had no doubt in my mind that Shamitabh will be one of the top best films of the year. Let’s cut the chase and dive into the review.

Shamitabh music review: Ilaiyaraaja’s magical compositions work wonders for Amitabh Bachchan-Dhanush starrer
Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire, Kausar Munir
Singers: Suraj Jagan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shruti Haasan, Carlisa Monterio, Rap Earl D’souza
R Balki’s Shamitabh is special in many ways. It is Akshara Haasan’s debut film, Dhanush second attempt at Hindi cinema after Raanjhanaa, Amitabh Bachchan playing drunk after so long, and of course the most looked forward onscreen reunion of Big B and Rekha. Shamitabh also marks the comeback of musical maestro Ilaiyaraaja, who last composed some beautiful melody for R Balki’s Paa. With Shamitabh being his 1000th film, fans of the legendary composer are expecting a terrific album from him, fitting to his remarkable feat. Being an Ilaiyaraaja fan myself, I have no doubt the album would be good. But, how good? Lets plug in our earphones and see what the musical maestro has in store for us

The ace filmmaker has managed to get these two legends in the same film
R Balki has been a lucky man. His filmmaking career has seen the best of Indian cinema come together and collaborate to produce a gem of a movie. Whether it was Cheeni Kum or Paa, there have been superstars like Amitabh Bachchan and Ilayaraja backing Balki.
