Bbuddah hoga tera baap - External Reviews

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?) - If you are a Big B fan though, you'll enjoy it a lot more.
quick review:

Bbuddah Hoga tera baap brazenly declares that this is a tribute to the legend and his prime years. Once you have done that, they could have gotten away with anything. They didn’t necessarily need a story or characterization. But they give you that and Amitabh Bachchan unlimited. Unfortunately, though the narration is falls flat every once in a while. And a tribute to the 70s-80s suffers from all the loopholes that a film from then had.

Thumbs up by Anna Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...In purely artistic terms, there are plenty of holes I could pick in this film. But what’s endearing about it is that it’s not pretending to be anything but an out-and-out paean to The Bachchan’s Angry Young Man days, right from the name of the film’s official website ... full review

So-So by Smita, Desi Martini ...The problem with this film is that it does not know whether it wants to tell a straightforward story, or is a parody/spoof/pastiche of an ageing superstars old films or a tribute to the prowess of the said superstar.... full review

So-So by Nupur Barua, ...Charmme Kaur is bubbly and fun, and she plays her small part with aplomb. Sonal Chauhan has one expression throughout, and her role is quite superfluous. ... full review

Thumbs up by Subhash K Jha, Now ...The rapport that his character builds up through some lovely actresses of several generations (Hema Malini, Raveena Tandon, Sonal Chauhan, Charmee) is so bloody robust and funny, you are left wondering how much of the sly subtle foxy flirtatiousness comes from the star and how much of it was there in the screenplay.... full review

Thumbs down by Reel Reptile, Upper Stall ...The tribute would seem less out of place down South where all Rajini sir or 'Chiru' needs to do is appear on screen for the audiences to go wild and worship their demi-God in any role. To expect that the same would hold true here at this stage of evolution in Bollywood, might be expecting a bit too much... full review
