Movie Review “Paa”
Director: R. Balki
Producer: A. B. Corp.
“Paa” is a story of Auro played by Amitabh Bachchan. He is a 12 year progeria infected kid. These kids body grows 7 time older than their actual age. That means they do not live beyond 13-14 years. Auro is living with his mother Vidya played by Vidya Balan who is gynecologist and his grandmother played by Arundhati Naag. Auro calls her bum. Now Auro is very popular at school and fun loving kid. Once he wins an award in his school which was presented to him from a young politician, Amol Arte played by Abhishek Bachchan. Now Amol Arte happens to be Auro’s father; but both of them unaware of it. During vidya’s studding days abroad, she was in a relationship with Amol Arte. But when she got pregnant Amol suggest abortion as he did not want to spoil his political ambition. But Vidya decides to keep the child and dump Amol. Over the years Vidya kept a secret from Auro about who his father is. But when Auro reaches final stages of his life she reveals to him that Amol Arte is his father. And then rest of the movie is all about how Auro get his parents back together.
Paa is a heart touching movie. It is a family entertainment and kids going to love it. There is some excellent cinematic work involved in this film. First and foremost what should be mentioned are make-up artists who transformed Amitabh Bachchan into Auro. Then Amitabh Bachchan again comes up with amazing acting performance. Then the kid who played Auro’s best friend Vishnu was simply brilliant. All the scenes involving him are highly entertaining. Way to go for this kid. Vidya Balan, Abhishek Bachchan and Arundhati Naag gave justice to their respective roles. But I felt Paresh Rawal was wasted.
If I have to rate this movie I will give it 8 out of 10. And it is a Must Watch Movies for all Amitabh Bachchan’s Fans.
