Movie Review: Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap

The film is an unabashed tribute to the most alpha man in the history of cinema

A politician arrives at the scene of a bomb blast, making the mastermind watching it all on a news channel comment that it’s only such events that politicians show up for. He instructs the man who has just carried out the blast to make the second bomb go off, and turns to a member of his gang and asks the guy if he has ever watched a live telecast of a bomb blast. After the second explosion, he turns back to the man and says, “Ab koi nahi aayega.”

Silliness is the name of the game, and even though this movie guises itself as a serious film, it has jokes in every other frame. Not the Dabanng kind of inanity, not even the impossible, unbelievable stuff that makes idiots build temples in Rajnikant’s name. Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap will have the masses and the classes chuckling because of the the references (there can never be enough) to Amitabh Bachchan’s movies and the general goofiness of all the characters in every situation of this film.

Amitabh Bachchan (the greatest actor in the world) plays a retired gangster who has left his pub in Paris to kick some ass in Mumbai. He charms young girls and older women with ease, rides a macho bike, wears shades while aiming at the unfortunate with a sniper.

Do you really want to know the story? Do you really care? This is the most loved Indian of all time – respected, adored, worshipped for every single thing he did and does. There is nobody in the universe who can walk, talk, stand, punch with a left hand, fire a gun, kick an erring motherfucker, make women fall in love and swoon, make men’s jaws drop in awe, grab someone by the collar, get angry, be apologetic, cry, laugh, smile, run, shout, dance, grit his teeth, smoke, get drunk, be funny, love, hate, live and die the way this man can. Nobody can even come close. How all the charisma in the world is crammed in one man is a great mystery to me.

The other actors are very good; they do what they’re supposed to do. Everybody is fucking funny and will crack you up at one point or another. Raveena Tandon looks like a zillion bucks and Sonal Chauhan has overthrown Priyanka Chopra and has taken her place in my life. Yeah, I am no longer in love with Priyanka Chopra. So long, Piggy Chops.

Back to the main stuff – Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is silly, but in a sweet, cute way. It is Puri Jagannadh’s unabashed tribute to the most alpha man in the history of cinema. The man who every man, woman and child can relate to. This is the man enjoying himself in a movie about everything he stands (tall) for because he still has the chops (of course) and because nobody else will ever be able to play him. How he transcended genres and went on to rule Hindi cinema is what will make other actors realize how important a role destiny plays – how one man can have everything while others…

Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is not meant to be taken very seriously. It’s for those who have grown up watching Amitabh Bachchan’s movies to sit back and laugh at the baap having some fun.

RATING: 2.5/5

Rishte mein toh hum tumhare baap lagte hain…

    I don’t care much about the movie, or the damn Bachchan, but I feel really bad for Piggy Chops now.
    One Sonal film & you’ve dumped Priyanka? How cruel is that, Aditya!

        I don’t know where the fuck it came from.
        Anyway, now that you’ve royally dumped Piggy, I guess I won’t be seeing anti-Kareena posts out here anymore. So, something good’s come out of it. 😀

    Mr. Bachchan’s magnetic aura gets his fans across the world hypnotized even at the age of 67. Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap is a tribute to his acting prowess and his immense contribution to Indian Cinema. This movie is for his die hard fans including me. He keeps getting better with age. I saw this movie yesterday and I am flabbergasted at the way Mr. Bachchan unfailingly charms you. When he’s in the frame, everyone else becomes irrelevant. No offense to Hema, Raveena, Prakash Raj & Sonal Chauhan.

    Mr. Bachchan is in the same league as Al Pacino, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson & Dustin Hoffman which I prefer to call as the “League of Extraordinary Actors”.

    Move over other coz this Baap means business and he is still the Alpha Male around. \m/
