Review

A big wow to Amitabh Bachchan, the film's marvellous pivot. We shouldn't be surprised by anymore Bachchanism, but the man -- currently, constantly pushing himself onto a limb, decidedly making 2007 his own -- is an undisputable rockstar. His Buddha is smooth yet suffers from occasional social awkwardness, and Bachchan manages both the rough brat and the annoyed old man tones with such ease.

Tabu is a great actress, and with a role that calls for far less bravura than her leading man, she is comfortably understated. Their banter runs deep through the film, and her Nina, whom you never know when to take seriously, is a perfect foil to Buddha's don't-ask-the-obvious derision.

The inimitable Zohra Sehgal plays Bachchan's wrestling-loving mother, a terrible cook who lectures him on gymming and knows him inside out, and is evidently the source of his scornful tongue.

This isn't a groundbreaking film, but it didn't set out to be. It's a maturely written film with great characters, tremendous performances and some fantastic moments.

Watch it. A brilliant sequence involving the chef, a chemist, chhatris and chachas is absolute movie magic, and in itself well worth the price of admission. Bravo. --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.

I own a lot of Hindi movies that I've copied onto my DVD-R discs and I've been happy with the picture and sound quality.

I got this because my Mother loves Bollywood movies and it was a good gift for her. This one is certainly different from other Bollywood films in that it's about older people. Passion and romance aren't just for the young after all. Overlooking a few elements of ridiculousness it's a pretty good film. Well worth the money.

Cheeni Kum is not your typical love story. This film is about Buddha, a 64-year-old grumpy chef, of an authentic Indian restaurant, in London, and Neena, 34-year-old woman visiting London, who falls in love. The first encounter is anything but good; Neena is the first person to ever send back a dish, Zafarani Pulao, a traditional Indian dish, at his restaurant saying it is too sweet. Buddha is very upset and approaches Neena. He is very rude in demanding her to tell him how to make the dish correctly, the close up of Neena's face shows that she isn't upset with him, but wants to laugh at him. The next day Neena brings her homemade Zafarani Pulao to Buddha at the restaurant, that is when he started to feel differently about her, because in the scene she leaves in slow motion and she looks back at him one more time before she goes around the corner. After that moment he feels as though he must apologize to her, but he cannot say sorry, so instead he gives her his umbrella. Neena goes to the restaurant daily saying she is there to return the umbrella but never does. Their relationship grows more and they fall in love. Buddah asks Neena to marry him and she accepts but there is a problem, Buddha is 6 years older than her father and he needs his blessing for the two of them to wed. After two days of starvation he finally accepted his offer to marry his daughter.
This movie was not one of my favorites because there was no singing or dancing. It was hard to keep me focused, because the music only came on whenever she was leaving him and was walking away. This movie was too drawn out for me but others might like it because it sticks closely with reality. As the relationship grows you seem them fall more in love with each other, from taking walks in the park, having cute nicknames for each other and getting upset when they don't see each other for a day. It shows in the relationship evolving and becoming something beautiful and different than other love stories.

I'll admit, I'm a sucker for *masala* conventions - overstuffed emotions, whiplash plot swings from comedy to romance to tragedy, and elaborate song and dance numbers at the drop of a hat...especially that last. CHEENI KUM doesn't have any elaborate song and dance numbers, the emotions are recognizably human-sized, and even the plot swings feel logically presented in the story rather than tossed in as desperate "POP!"s to get the audience excited. Having said that, this is one of my favorite recent Indian movies - right up there with EKLAYVA: THE ROYAL GUARD, AAJA NACHLE, RANG DE BASANTI, OM SHANTI OM, BHOOTHNATH and KRRISH.

If you watch any Indian movies, you already know Amitabh Bachchan is a wonderfully engaging ham bursting with star quality - CHEENI KUM shows just how great he can be playing a (mostly) human-sized character, a middle-aged but still single Indian man in London with a cranky mother still living with him. (Let's make allowances - he is the Executive Chef/Owner of a top Indian restaurant, after all, so he gets to roar a lot in the early going.) He meets disagreeably but is intrigued by a single Indian woman in her Thirties (Tabu) who won't be pushed around by his arrogance or bellicosity, and who shows him up on the proper cooking of a dish (one of his line cooks mistakenly added sugar instead of salt, which he would have known if he'd bothered to taste it when she first complained to him!). While never exactly admitting he was wrong, he tries to make it up to her - and thus begins a slow slide into the two of them falling for each other, punctuated with lots of increasingly affectionate insults and scoldings.

Good movie but video quality is poor. Not worth to pay and watch. Kind of blurred images. Good to watch in CRT monitor

Chini Kum was a nice entertainer. Amitabh never fails to entertain (as an eligible bachelor once again). Tabu plays a good role too.
