Amitabh Bachchan & Rishi Kapoor paint magic with their chemistry on this slice-of-life canvas
Old is Gold. This proverb not only stands true for things but beings too.
Don’t we all ask our parents or grandparents as to how did they manage all that hard work when we in 2018 get tired in minutes as we step out of the house. While a lot of factors are the reason behind it, the prime elements are optimism and will power.
And this films speaks volumes about that. It’s a good watch for audiences from all age groups.

Read Detail Review
Right from script to direction, things are simple, innocent, lively and lovely in the film. Director Umesh Shukla made each scene interesting with quirk and made sure we take a small packet of emotions and thoughts while we exit.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Inspired by Saumya Joshi’s Gujarati play, the story revolves around a 75 year old son and his 102 year old father. The script revolves around how differently similar they both are in approach and ideology.
The script is a canvas painted by the colourful chemistry of BigB and Chintuji. It also has many many sub layers and sub texts and without being preachy, it slides down so many beautiful thoughts about living life.
Live till the time you are alive, that’s the main essence of the film shown in the most simplistic way. It’s like watching two next door neighbours, we just wished these beautiful old men on our way but never knew the lives they lead, the film is that realistic.
The pace is a bit slow, but the lively soul of the film lets one ignore the pace.
Amitabh Bachchan is unbelievably good. It’s not just here, it’s the case always. Cuter than a soft toy and brighter than sunshine, that’s how he is in this film. His Gujarati dialect and delivery are just adorably perfect. Apart from his brilliant acting, it’s the way his character has been sketched that works big time.
And thank good, somebody thought of bringing these two wonderful actors together. And so talking about BigB’s better half in the film, Rishi Kapoor pours magic from the very first scene. Right from expressions to the attitude required to pull off the role of a cautious old man, the actor is just wonderful.
Jimit Trivedi, is too good, and when we say this, take note that there is BigB and Chintu ji and to catch attention amongst supreme talent is an achievement.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Songs go well with the film, especially the lyrics, they fit in perfectly. Audio wise, the tracks can be avoided.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.
Childhood and Old age are those times. The former end of this see saw would love this film when they grow up, the latter end will surely love it. And the ones at the centre, the adulthood people shouldn’t miss this for its light heartedness and logical approach.
