Special appearance of Big B doesn't lift films
By Priyanka Khanna, IANS
The Big B made a particularly huge number of special appearances in ordinary films this year.
There were two films in January and three in June but the result was not much better though.
Amitabh's cameo in Farhan Akhtar's labour of love "Lakshya" was well done though unfortunately the film was a box-office dud, while Milan Luthria's "Deewaar" left many audiences feeling cheated.
His act in the puerile "Kyun Ho Gaya Na", which starred Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi, will hopefully be the last time audiences see the actor wasted.
Only Rajkumar Santoshi's "Khakee" and Govind Nilhani's "Dev" did justice to him but did not excite viewers.
The junior Bachchan's search for elusive glory continued in the first half of this year with two more flops before "Dhoom" became an unexpected big grosser. He has consolidated his position as an actor with Mani Ratnam's "Yuva" and just released Revathy's sensitive film on HIV/AIDS "Phir Milenge."
