Shamitabh is an upcoming Hindi film directed by R. Balki, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and Akshara Haasan, in her debut, in the lead roles. The soundtrack and background score will be composed by Ilaiyaraaja while cinematography will be handled by P. C. Sreeram.
The first look of the lead actors Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush were released on 23 July and 25 July 2014, respectively. Amitabh Bachchan had been reportedly seen sporting a rugged look and wearing shabby clothes which he found quite difficult to preserve throughout the shooting of the film. Amitabh Bachchan described the film as "novel, out of the ordinary and most challenging" and Shamitabh is "no different". Amitabh Bachchan lent his voice to Dhanush who reprotedly played a deaf and mute junior artiste in the film.
Shmitabh became the first Bollywood film to be shot in the Finnish Laplands and in Helsinki The crew shot some scenes at the Seven Hills Hospital, the same place where Amitabh Bachchan underwent two abdominal surgeries and saw the birth of Aaradhya, his granddaughter.
Verdict : Not too classy, not too massy. Watch it for Big B’s performance and different concept. Don’t expect the extra-ordinary. _________________________________________________________________________________________
