PAA is the Hindi Movie(released Dec 04) directed by Balki starring Amitabh Bachchan , Abhishek Bachchan, Vidya Balan. PAA is a 'rare' story about a father-son, son-father relationship.


Hindi movie PAA: Review by

Know that warm fuzzy feeling of childhood? When your world is so fragile, it falls apart if someone fails to keep a promise but is accommodating enough to mend soon after Mom and Dad entice you with a fancy new toy or big bear hugs and gentle, loving assurances.

Director R Balakrishnan aka Balki's Paa celebrates the purest phase of an individual with such touching simplicity; it's impossible to remain unmoved. What's more remarkable he doesn't brand the key protagonist into someone odd or special because of his peculiar illness.

Amitabh Bachchan's unrestrained spontaneity sparkles in every frame. At the same time, the details he brings to the same through his animated physicality, understated vulnerability and understandable petulance is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

It's a well-written role. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about Paa himself. Abhishek's character is somewhat gawkily handled. While his interactions with Bachchan Sr are pleasant, he appears too much in awe and hesitation to convey anything else.

Even though the film's not called Maa, it easily could be. Vidya Balan slips into the skin of a doting mom with such ease without the mollycoddling tone Bollywood's young mothers often resort to. Balan is poignant yet restrained and projects an impressive figure of grace and integrity, reminiscent of Dimple Kapadia in the 1980s.


While PC Sreeram's photography vividly captures the dazzling and vibrant view of Auro's moods, the jumpy editing is a serious bone of contention. It's as if a series of fragments were hurriedly stitched together.

Ultimately, Paa is Auro's dream and moment. And so you shed a tear in his memory and leave the hall with a fond smile on your lips, secretly doing the monkey dance in your head knowing he would have liked it. >> [ Read complete review @ REDIFF ]
