'Ghoomer' caught the attention of Abhishek's father, the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh not only watched the film twice but also took to his official blog to shower praises on it
After enduring multiple setbacks and playing less prominent parts for an extended period, Abhishek Bachchan has shifted his focus towards substantial movie roles that challenge his acting prowess and propel his career forward.
One of his upcoming projects is a film directed by R. Balki, in which he will be sharing the screen with Saiyami Kher. The film has garnered significant anticipation and recently earned a standing ovation after its screening at the 14th Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM) inaugural evening.
As a result, he has become more selective about the films he takes on. After an absence of over a year, Abhishek is poised for a comeback with the eagerly awaited sports drama `Ghoomer`, helmed by R. Balki. The film also caught the attention of Abhishek`s father, the legendary Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh not only watched the film twice but also took to his official blog to shower praises on it. He mentioned that the film deeply moved him and even brought tears to his eyes.
He wrote, “Yes, I saw GHOOMER back to back twice… Sunday afternoon… and then at night again… and the verdict is beyond mention… simply INCREDIBLE… eyes have been in the aqua flow from the very first frame… and when the progeny is involved, they flow copiously.”
Amitabh continued, “Each reaction has some wonder in their thoughts and words and deeds… each notices something that is so endearing and appealing… the emotions relate to yes the game of cricket and the tale of a girl and her ambition… but it is really the feel of the depiction and its impress upon not just the game, but of the effect of family, of the Mother, of what middle India stands for in our lives.”
He added, “It is the simplicity of the way the narration occurs… it is the deftness with which R. Balki has knitted before us, in the simplest of manner, a most complex idea… of losers and winners… of what each one of us has been through… of that most powerful written spoken word: I know what a loser feels, and experiences; I want to know what a winner feels and experiences…”
Furthermore, Amitabh noted, “Sheer brilliance in the writing and in expression what each one of us have experienced in our lives… each of us… Each one of us have faced failure at some point or the other in our lives… and we are aware and know how it feels… but… how does a winner feel when he succeeds… that is the challenge we all face… we all strive for… we all struggle for… and then when we find that door is shut… we break it open and ENTER… to achieve what we have wanted to all our lives…”
Amitabh asserted, “That is the learning… the template of living… and when it is portrayed in a most creative subtle manner… the respect and applaud is tremendous… WIN AND FEEL IT… IT IS THE MOST DESIRED FEEL OF THE HUMAN… YOU KEEP BANGING AT THE DOOR… AND ONE DAY IT OPENS.”
With anticipation surrounding his upcoming project with R. Balki, his enduring appeal and commitment to challenging roles are evident. Amitabh Bachchan`s praise for the film `Ghoomer" reflects its universal message of triumph and resilience, mirroring Abhishek`s own journey.
