Paa – Topaz Thoughts

Yesterday watched Paa with lots of expectations and curiosity. Expectations because none of the movie this year has got such good ratings from almost every critic and curiosity to see how AB has bettered his own acting benchmark.You guys must have read so many reviews and must be aware of the basic premise of the movie .I am putting my thoughts on key aspects.

Story-To me this is the weakest link in the movie, it is just because of some very memorable performances you ignore the cliché ridden or done to death story. Till the very end you cannot fathom what the purpose of the movie is. Whether it is to educate people about deadly disease progeria or is it about showcasing Mr.Amitabh Bachchan’s acting capabilities or conflict of sensibilities which takes two lovers apart etc etc

 Performances-.Amitabh bachchan has given what I would say his best performance after black. He is just outstanding. His mannerism and his voice match that of a 13 year old kid to perfection and it just shows why he is the paa of all the actors in India. Vidya Balan is first rate. Abhishek Bachchan and Paresh Rawal are good and carry their roles quite well. Arundhati Naag is amazing. Kid, Pratik, enacting the role of Auro’s best buddy delivers some very hilarious lines and his telephonic conversation just sends you in ruptures. Technical Aspects- R. Balki is definitely a very competent story teller but like Cheeni Kum (kid suffering from cancer) he again adds sub plot (Abhishek’s political career), which actually dilutes the overall impact. Ilaiyaraaja’s music is good but songs have little scope. Mudi Mudi song is very good but picturized hurriedly. P.C. Sreeram’s cinematography is top class.

 Makeup by Christien Tinsley and Domini Till is of Hollywood standards and is the reason we could believe in AURO.

Paa on a whole is a good watch but the prime reason to watch it is incredible performance by Amitabh Bachchan, which actually leaves lump in your throat.
