The accolades for UDAAN just keep pouring. The latest actor to appreciate the film is none other than Amitabh Bahchan. He has gone all out and praised UDDAN director Vikramaditya Motwane.

Amitabh wrote on his blog, "Vikramaditya Motwane, a school mate of Abhishek has directed this film. His only prior credential has been that he was an assistant to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. A young man who had come some years ago to me with a marvelous script, has directed this venture of his with the maturity that one does not expect to see from one on his debut venture."



He further went on to add, "In all the noise and thunder of the popular cinema now prevalent, this film comes as a fresh breeze of air. Its simplicity is brimming over with the intensity of its content. It allows the audience to get involved in what enfolds before you and in silent overtones invites the people to speak for the characters, rather than have the obvious dialogue thrown in for commercial success."

"Bringing an audience into the frame work of the story is not an easy task. I thought it was extremely brave of the Director to be able to achieve that," said the veteran actor.

Amitabh discussed the film with his wife for a long time.

He mentioned on his blog, "Jaya and I discussed the film long after it was over and after. It is always interesting to do so. Brings out so many aspects of the film that may never have been noticed."
