Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap - Movie Review

Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap - Movie Review
The ApunKaChoice movie review of Bbuddah - Hoga Terra Baap. Before the newly anointed superstars paved their way to stardom by doffing shirts or by their flared-nostril stutters, there was a mega star who at his best then could have been the baap of every self-proclaimed star today had he retained his pizzazz and had directors continued to come up with scripts and roles to match his talent. Director Puri Jagannadh tries to bring that baap back with a bombastic tribute to Amitabh Bachchan in the film Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap.

Alas Jagannadh’s idea of a befitting tribute doesn’t go beyond recreating the panache and swagger and paying token homage to the best cinematic moments of the superstar. So we have Amitabh Bachchan dressed in the gaudiest of togs, boogieing with a bunch of blondes to a medley of his popular songs from ‘Paan Banaras Wala’ to ‘Rang Barse’. In action, Big B bashes up the baddies singlehandedly and flaunts his ambidexterity with guns. And all this he does in the film that has a threadbare script to prop the comeback megastar’s shtick.

So a good length of the film unspools by with Big B just bumming around with pretty babes (Charmee and Sonal Chauhan) or training his gun on a copper (Sonu Sood) or impressing the goons (Makrand Deshpande and Prakash Raj) in seedy dens with his sharp shooting skills.

Bachchan plays an ex-hitman Viju who returns from Paris to Mumbai on his last assignment which seems assassinating the crime-busting ACP (Sonu Sood). However, as the story progresses new equations are unravelled and a family picture emerges.

The troubles with Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap are many. It’s disjointed, it’s hardly got any story or plot progression, and it hinges only on Amitabh Bachchan’s strut and swagger. The superstar doubtlessly delivers and saves the film from being an outright disaster, but one expected a better tribute to the man who’s immortalized many a role, many a dialogue in Hindi films, including a seething monologue with the almighty.

In supporting roles, Raveena Tandon (as Viju’s smitten admirer) is almost reduced to a caricature while Hema Malini (as Viju’s wife) rekindles the old chemistry of Naseeb days. Sonu Sood doesn’t do much more than woo Sonal Chauhan who looks pretty and acts okay. Charmee simply disappears after the first half.

All in all, Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is strictly for Amitabh Bachchan fans.
