Many in the industry are hailing RANN as the return of the Big B's ever popular 'angry old man' image. The legend will be seen in such an intense and hard-hitting role after nearly two decade.

If the promos of RANN are anything to go by, it promises to pack in a solid punch with its dialogues and heavy-duty performances. Ever wondered how the great Amitabh Bachchan manages to look so convincing in performance after performance? According to sources on the sets of RANN, the stalwart prefers to read his dialogues in the language that they actually have to be mouthed in. He believes this lends authenticity to the words. The son of one of the greatest Hindi poets of our nation, Big B insists that his Hindi dialogues be presented to him in the "Devnagri" script as opposed to many other actors who opt to receive their Hindi lines in English!

Bachchan says that he is able to grasp the lines far better in this manner.

Well, our new-age actors with their perpetual problem with the national language could surely learn a lesson or two from the grand old young man of Hindi Cinema!

RANN will hit the cinemas on January 29, 2010. It is an Indian Films-Studio 18 international release.
