If you were wondering what is R Balki's latest flick all about, then look no further, as the new trailer reveals the story of the much anticipated film.
Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush’s upcoming film, Shamitabh has already created tremendous buzz. Directed by R Balki, the film also marks the debut of Kamal Haasan’s younger daughter Akshara Haasan. While the story of the film has been kept in tight wraps, it is being rumoured that Dhanush enjoyed shooting for the film since he was playing a deaf and mute, and so had no Hindi lines to deliver. After an impressive first trailer, which revealed little about the plot, finally, R Balki reveals what is Shamitabh all about.
So I kept aside all my pre-conceived notions about the film and took a quick sneak peak into second trailer of Shamitabh, only to find myself completely in awe. Here is what I thought about the trailer:
The first half of the trailer features predominantly Dhanush, speaking in Big B's dumdaar voice, as we track his rise to super stardom. Akshara Haasan plays the young upcoming filmmaker who has the brilliant idea of overlapping Bachchan's voice to Dhanush's star like persona to give the industry a new hero, Shamitabh. While it is still unclear if Dhanush is playing a mute guy, Amitabh's baritone certainly suits him. On the other hand, Big B as the drunkard with the voice behind the superstar, seems to have got a meaty role after a long time and the actor seems to be enjoying it thoroughly. And by looking at the trailer, I could bet that the film is about the clashing egos of Amitabh and Dhanush, as they fight over for a shot at super stardom. R Balki's films seems to ask an interesting question - what makes one a brilliant actor - his expressions or his voice?
