Paa (2009)

Written By Unknown on Sunday, December 27, 2009 | 4:34 AM

Genre: Drama/Comedy

Starring: Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Vidya Balan, Paresh Rawal

An actor can live at peace when he knows that at the end of his career he has played almost every possible role and there is nothing more for him to achieve in the movie world. Amitabh Bachchan aka Big B is one such great personality who can now stand up to the entire world and pronounce this achievement. Progeria, is a rare genetic disorder wherein a child's physical appearance is 5-6 times his age but is mentally still a child. Auro (Amitabh Bachchan) is one such child who has to face the daily hardships of this rare disease. His father is the well known MP Amol Arte (Abhishek Bachchan) who impregnated Vidya (Balan) while they were in college. When Amol refused to marry Vidya, she left him and raised the child. Amol is unaware of Auro, yet co-incidentally their paths of life crossed. Auro being aware that he was his father and Amol being unaware that Auro is his son. The entire make-up and get up of Auro is a landmark achievement for the make up artist and must be commended on it. The movie story per se is quite regular and nothing very different. A diseased child and his hard childhood years. The reason to have a sixty seven year old ageing actor play the role of a young thirteen year old is not quite logical. The only reason is purely a marketing one. Probably if a young child artist was asked to execute the same role, the movie would not have got the respect it has now received. The only respite in the entire story is Amitabh Bachchan and his amazing one-liners. Even on his death bed he vows to make you laugh. The movie is a definite watch for gaining sympathy with the unfortunate children who are born with life-threatening diseases and to laugh at Bachchan Sr. and his child-like jokes.

Thumbs up: Makeup, humour and Amitabh Bachchan
Thumbs down: Pretty average storyline

Rating: 7.6/10
