Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna - The Movie VIII

One guy who’s risen above the circumspect acting in the movie of the other stars and the flawed script / story, is Abhishek Bachchan. He is so very natural. He is quite effortless with a range of emotions right from funny, to being loving and caring husband to a raging husband to a grieving son who knows that he is about to lose his father. His jig on the song “Just Chill” was quite good. And he was the junior most in comparison to all other stars in the film in terms of acting, number of years in the industry, accolates and hits. And yet he stood out. He’s clearly here to stay and for a long time.

Another aspect that stood out in the film was the chemistry between Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan. These two are very good together and their off-screen chemistry comes so naturally on screen.

All in all, my take on Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna is that it’s a bad movie with bad performances (except Abhishek Bachchan), bad music and a really bad story. However, the box office collections have another story to tell. Which may also throw some light on my skills to write a critique about a film.
