    Feel Proud….

    Paa rating: 9 out of 10

    By Divya Solgama(04 Dec 2009)

    Since it’s an Indian film I recollect some great actors who did some memorable roles despite of age or health being a big barrier. I remember Balraj Sahani doing Garam Hawa, Meena Kumari doing Paakeza, Prithviraj Kapoor doing Mughal E Azam, Sashi Kapoor doing Muhafiz and few more. But that seems to be a historic chapter of Indian cinema, in recent times no one has even come nearer to attempt something which their age and health does not support. But then there is an important man in Indian cinema who has always taken the Indian Cinema and his stardom to an upper level ... » read more

    I loved Paa! Maybe it had something to do with expectations (I wasn't really expecting much) or just the simple fact that this movie touched my heart - straight as an arrow - I laughed at the witty dialogues and cried my eyes out in the scenes which touched me. A movie for the heart not for the mind!

    If you're looking for a movie to analyse - don't watch Paa. If you're looking for a simple movie which just relates to the heart go watch Paa - now!

    What emerges from the movie are performances - Amitabh the persona ... » read more

    Paa–Paa The Great

    By Pravir (10 Dec 2009)

    In a time when sweet–sixteens are made to play grandmothers on the buddhu–box, Balki does the other way round by thinking out of the box, and cleverly balances the real and character age of Auro. Simply said, Auro (se) Pyaar Ho Gaya…

    Amol Arte (Abhishek Bachchan), an ambitious heir of a businessman (Paresh Rawal) is studying in the UK. He meets Vidya (Vidya Balan), a fellow medical student. Their love blossoms and Vidya becomes pregnant. Amol has a vision to go back to India and reform the stale political scene with his ideas, so he is not ready to get distracted ... » read more

    Amol Arte (Abhishek Bachchan), an ambitious heir of an experience politician (Paresh Rawal) is studying in the UK. He meets Vidya (Vidya Balan), a fellow medical student. They fall in love and as it blossoms Vidya becomes pregnant. Amol had it in his mind, that after completing his studies, he would go back to India, become a politician like his father and change India for the better, and thus he is not yet ready for marriage. He asks Vidya to abort the child, but she instead tells him that he wont ever have a problem coz of her or her child and goes away from his life. ... » read more

    FANTABULOUS!!! & 4 Stars – But only for the AB’s Performance!

    As we all know, this is a very rare Father-Son, Son-Father story. But only in terms of reality as Small B & Big B, and in terms of the characters, Father-Small B & Son-Big B. The story part is not so rare, but somewhat common, highly predictable with the some new concept, and not to forget with some Exra-Ordinary & Fantabulous Performance given by the none other than – Mr. Amitabh Bachchan.

    It’s simple and can be explained in just few lines.
    Abhishek and Vidya had an affair ... » read more

    I guess you guys are exaggerating things ...
    Come on! don't you guys remember the filthy, dirty and the unsportsmanlike movie series of Amitab bacchen . "CHEENI KUM", "NISHABD"...

    How come that OLD GEEZER can do a movie like NISHABD....DARN IT!!!

    I too was a big fan of Amitab Bachen but the moment I saw those movies I started to hate him... And now I completely feel antipathy and aversion towards Amitab bacchen and his Demented and arrogant son "Abhishek" .... and I'm ain't watching PAA. » read more

    Paa' starring 'Abhishek Bachan, Amitabh Bachan, Paresh Rawal and Vidya Balan in the lead casts. Big B is playing the role of a son, while his son ‘Abhishek’ is playing the father`s role.
    The finest quality of the film is its refusal to coax pity out of the viewer - either for Auro or for single mother Vidya. A successful gynaecologist, Vidya is shown to provide Auro with all the comforts - from a nice car to a computer and even a play station. Together with Vidya’s mother, they form a cosy unit always good-naturedly ribbing one another. The inclusion of the Paa happens ... » read more

    Big B is playing the role of a son, while his son ‘Abhishek’ is playing the father`s role

    Big B will appear in a phenominal look, which is sure to drag many viewers to the theatre.

    Movie lovers are quite excited to watch both father (Amitabh) and son (Abishek) in the same movie.

    The story is about a 13 year old boy who suffers from Progeria a terminal disease. A deep research has been done about this disease. Kids affected by this problem become bald and their veins are shown prominently on their heads which enlarge to a size beyond normal. ... » read more
