Review

Paa' is very enjoyable as it celebrates the unique qualities which make special people shooting stars. There are a couple of scenes that will have most people watery-eyed. Watch it for Big B, who is at his versatile best here. --platform47.com

Without a doubt Amitabh Bachchan deserves all the awards and accolades for his portrayal of Auro. With a new voice, face and body language here is one character of Big B which will undoubtedly stand out in his filmography for being delightfully different and charmingly childish. Vidya Balan is brilliantly expressive and shares great maternal chemistry with Auro. Abhishek Bachchan puts in a poised performance as a politician and pal-turned-Paa to Auro. Pratik Katare as Auro s schoolmate, Vishnu, gets the funniest one-liners. Arundhati Nag as the grandmother puts in a confident act. Even Paresh Rawal is pleasant in his extended special appearance.

At times you should not be yourself to show the world what you really are. Amitabh Bachchan does just that and shows the world he is the Paa of performing arts. --platform47.com

About the Actor

Born under the Libran sun sign, Amitabh Bachchan celebrates his birthday on 11th October. He was born in 1942 in Allahabad, as Amitabh Srivastav to Dr.Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan. His father was a well known poet. Bachchan was his pen name. When Amitabh entered the film industry he replaced Srivastav with Bachchan. Ajitabh is his younger brother.

Bachchan studied in Allahabad at Jnana Pramodhini and Boys High School. He also put in a few years at Sherwood College in Nainital and Kirori Mal College. He holds a double degree in M.A. He married his co-star Jaya Bhaduri of the Guddi fame on 3rd June 1973 and they have two children Shweta and Abhishek. The latter is also an actor, married to Aishwarya Rai.

In 1969, Bachchan made his debut with ""Saat Hindustani"", which won him the National Film Award for Best Newcomer. After this came movies like ""Reshma Aur Shera"", ""Parwana"" and ""Anand"" in 1971. He made a huge impact with his performance in Hrishikesh Mukherjee s ""Anand"" alongside Rajesh Khanna as a despondent doctor, winning the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award.

In 1972 he appeared in movies like ""Sanjog"", ""Bansi Birju"", ""Ek Nazar"" and also narrated ""Bawarchi"".

1973 saw significant development in Bachchan's career when director Prakash Mehra cast him in the leading role for the film ""Zanjeer"" as Inspector Vijay Khanna. In 1974, Bachchan made several guest appearances in films such as ""Kunwara Baap"" and ""Dost"", before playing a supporting role in the highest grossing film of that year, ""Roti Kapda Aur Makaan"". Released on 15 August 1975, was ""Sholay"", which became the highest grossing film of all time in India. Bachchan had now consolidated his position in the industry and from 1976 through to 1984 would receive an unprecedented number of Filmfare Best Actor Award Awards and nominations.

In 1984, Amitabh took a break from acting and briefly entered politics. In 1988, Bachchan returned to films, playing the title role in Shahenshah, which was a box office success due to the hype of Bachchan's comeback. In 2000, Indian Television audience stuck to the television at 9 when Amitabh Bachchan hosted 'Kaun Banega Crorepati?'!

Bachchan has won 3 National Awards, 7 Lifetime Achievement Awards and innumerable other awards and International Honors and Recognition.

Paa is one of the signs that Indian Cinema is changing and keeping up with the times. In breaking the mold, Indian movies are thus attempting movies which are viewable, interesting and give you more reasons to visit the movie theaters.
This movie is not similar to Jack or Benjamin Button. So the comparison does not exist.
Amitabh Bachchan is Auro a 12 year old boy who looks like he is 80 years old and suffers from progeria, a rare genetic disease. The story is of Vidya Balan and Abhishek who meet many years ago at college in London. They have a brief fling and Vidya becomes pregnant, since Abhishek nurses political ambitions he suggests that she have an abortion. They separate and Vidya brings up Auro as a single mother. Years later they meet again when Abhishek has become a Member of Parliament and visits his son's school. The rest of the movie follows the life of Auro and how he is ultimately responsible for getting his mom and dad together after many years.
Director Balki delivers a much more polished product than Cheeni Kum, I can say that he is a director to watch out far.
The make up team comprising of Christien Tinsley and Dominie Till is absolutely superb removing every trace of Amitabh Bachchan from Auro and transforming him in to an old man child. Through Auro he has undergone a complete makeover, gone is the famous voice and face.

Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan deliver great performances as well. Auro's friend, Pratik i.e. the kid with the glasses is extremely funny. Paresh Rawal and Arundhati Nag as Auro's grandmother add considerable support. The movie belongs to Amitabh Bachchan who manages to deliver a superb performance as Auro, although I found that the chimp gestures were excessive and irritating. How I wish he had the chance to make such cinema in the 80's and 90's.
A good movie that is not a tear jerker but a light fun filled entertainer given its topic and ending. I gave it four stars.2/1/10

Yes, it's candy coated, but so what!

This is the story about a virtuous man who has vision. It is also a story about a woman who has another. Both are meritorious and are touching. But moreover, it is a story about a boy who is not so innocent, highly intelligent, and has high self esteem. It is a captivating story that demonstrates many wisdoms: Virtue, integrity, being straightforward. But it also demonstrates that nobody is infallible. People make mistakes. People have pain. People have can have morals and strengths, and when they stand up and behave responsibly, even this can bring peril. But responsibility is the theme here, and this film makes that message clear.

For every action, there are people who would undo you. For every action, there are consequences, even when the action is noble and virtuous.

Paa is the kind of film that makes you think. It shows you alternatives. It teaches you wisdom. And carefully and subtley, it is also very entertaining! There is much charm in it. There are gripping plot twists in it. Both will keep you watching this film. I highly recommend it to anyone who has both heart and a little wisdom.

sidebar: Though some reviewers of Bollywood films accuse them of painting a perfect world or of moralizing, many of them contain wisdom that is not taught by Hollywood films. Bollywood offers something unique and different, and from many of their films, there are things about life worth learning. Paa is a good place to start, and Paa deserves a place in your library of films, right alongside National Velvet, and Charlie Chaplin's The Kid.

p.s. This film is available from Netflix. If you doubt what I say, rent it first, then decide. I'm sure that many who have both heart and brains will add this to their collection.

If Bollywood movies are to be believed, life in India is just one long song-and-dance routine, replete with swirling colors and dazzling costumes. And it matters not whether the subject be comedy, drama, romance, politics, poverty or - as in the case of "Paa" - Progeria, an incurable genetic disorder that causes a person to age at an alarmingly accelerated rate, so that a mere child will have the appearance and body of an octogenarian before hitting puberty (think of it as Benjamin Button in reverse). It is a condition that invariably ends in premature death around the age of thirteen. Such is the fate facing Auro (an adult Amitabh Bachchan in prosthetic makeup), a bright and spunky twelve-year-old boy with the physical condition and ailments common to a man in his 80s. Auro is plucked from relative obscurity when the newly elected MP (Abhishek Bachchan) takes a liking to him - only to discover that Auro is his very own son whom he abandoned years ago when his girlfriend, Vidya (Vidya Balan), became pregnant and led him to believe she was going to have an abortion.

Like many Bollywood productions, "Paa" suffers from excessive length, an overabundance of sentimentality, and a too-cheery disposition towards the vicissitudes and hardships of life - and, of course, the seemingly insatiable need for the aforementioned musical numbers. However, in this instance at least, saner heads seem to have prevailed, since such scenes are kept to a reasonable minimum, even though the running time of 136 minutes is still far too long for the story it has to tell. The movie, written and directed by R Balki, also can't entirely resist the temptation to make Auro an object of humor (though not of ridicule), and it really turns on the waterworks as it heads to its predestined tragic conclusion.
