With his third film Balki has established his own style of film making which is; a different concept with outstanding first half and a mediocre second half. Shamitabh makes me say this because Cheeni Kum and Paa have been the same. Shamitabh concept is first of its kind in Bollywood. Kudos to Balki. First half of the film is brilliant and just makes you indulge in the cinematic brilliance of Balki. Second half is not so complaining but lacks the thrill of first half.

Shamitabh works because of Balki and the performances in the film. Amitabh Bachchan surpasses the expectations every time with his mind-blowing performances. His performance in Shamitabh will be remembered forever. Dhanush is a treat to watch. With no dialogues he just shocks you with his outstanding performance. Akshara Haasan makes a very impressive debut. Whether this is Balki’s direction or her talent will be proved in her next film. But Akshara is definitely something to look out for in the future. Music of the film is an added advantage for the film as it just makes the film look more good.

All other aspects of the film, be it music, editing, cinematography, background score etc is just worth praising. Shamitabh has nothing to be criticized about so just go and watch this amazing film.  This one is absolutely recommended.

Rating: 3/5
