In this era of hardcore commercialism, there still remains a segment in the film industry which churns out classy movies that make India proud at the international level. We are referring to The Planman Motion Pictures whose MITHYA received massive appreciation and also earned the distinction of being the first success of the year.
Well, the banner has a special bond with the charismatic and award winning director, Rituparno Ghosh as his critically acclaimed DOHAR (starring super actress Nandita Das) was produced by them. Strengthening the bond further and also continuing with the trend of backing quality products, the banner now gives the Indian audience a chance to witness cinema at its best, with THE LAST LEAR. Megastar Amitabh Bachchan plays a character called Harry, a hearty, eccentric and passionate actor. Let us hear what some of the renowned critics and people related with the industry have to say about Bachchan's performance.
'Yes, this film is Big B's best till date', says Paula Ray (London Film Festival).
Cameron Bailey (Toronto Film Festival Gala Premier) says "Bachchan offers a master class in acting in THE LAST LEAR. Like Richard Burton, Toshiro Mifune or other larger than life greats, Bachchan demands to be watched.' Says Pritish Nandy, "No genuine film lover can afford to miss it for Bachchan's sterling performance. This is one of his best ever!'
So, do yourself a favour and watch Big B in his (best) elements when THE LAST LEAR hits the theatres on 12th September.
