Quotes

[first lines]
Gautam: The premier of your first film is always special, but not if Diwali is on the same day. People are generally busy with celebrations at home. It is unlikely that all the invitees will turn up - especially if it's an off-beat film.

Awesome combination of Rituparno Ghosh & Amitabh Bachchan
23 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie is simply amazing as it shows the brilliant combination of two great people.Amitabh Bachchan and Rituparno Ghosh are two legends in their own field. Last Lear is a movie about how Amitabh Bachchan, also playing the lead role in the film wants to be a great stage actor.Preity Zinta,Arjun Rampal,Shefali Chhaya were among the other casts in the movie.Believe me,all have given tremendous performance. in the film.Amitabh Bachchan needs no word to describe his acting.He is always super in any role that he plays.Arjun Rampal perhaps can be proud to be a part of this film.It is one of his best film where he has played his in a much better way than what he does.Preity Zinta is in a completely different role and is superb. Great direction,great screenplay,good story line and amazing performance- last lear has it all and must not be missed at all.
