Pichchurr Hall - Viruddh

Why do people have to make movies if they dont have anything to say or show ?

Mahesh Manjrekar, after a long sequence of absolute crap, gets fed up of the constant abuse that was scarring his infant psyche, decides to make a bhaari movie.

He remembers seeing a long-forgotten movie called Saaransh and then, since he doesnt want to copy, modifies the ending a bit to suit the stature of Amitabh Bachchan. So here we have the father, distraught over the loss of his son in an unrelated shooting, picks up the gun and shoots the fellow who killed his son.

In the court case that follows he confesses to his crime, gives some cock-and-bull justification for his act and is declared innocent (!!!) by the judge. I am aware that mitigating circumstances permit judges to reduce the quantum of the sentence or the severity of the punishment but the fact that circumstances can change the verdict as well was news to me.

Amitabh Bachchan must be on his way to toppling Azim Premji, of the Wipro company fame, as th richest man in India, going by the number of movies he shows up in these days. In fact, I am going to count the movies in which he doesnt appear, it will be far easier.

Sharmila Tagore impresses in a pointless role in a pointless movie. John Abraham is rock solid, as usual. I am referring to his expressions here.

What is Sanjay Dutt doing in this movie ?
