2005 bollywood blockbuster
26 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Finally Ramu gets his masterpiece, I believe that a filmmaker can only hit a peak like this only once. After seeing Ramu experiment with different styles I believe ramu gets it right by using the correct cinematography accompanied by the colourful and sometimes intense background music's I think it's a marriage made in haven Big B taking on Marlon Brando role here I believe the public the actor and the fraternity wanted to see this happen.I believe, right from the opening scene Big B gives a cold stare implying I am in control of this role by doing this he puts his stamp on role and states I will do this my way. I think Big B has been waiting for Junior B to learn his craft before taking on this role. Junior B to his credit has puts a lot of thought into little mannerisms for which he has receive a lot of accolades. As a die hard Big B fan its even hard to comprehend that junior B has the capacity to outdo his legend of a father. This film suggests that Junior B with performances like this and his work in Guru his starting to fill those big boots
