This is a phenomenal movie! Amitabh gives a stunning performance! John and Salman are outstanding as well! In this movie, it is Amitabh's character, Balraaj, that shines throughout the movie. This movie is indeed a tearjerker and heartwrenching, but it also reminds one of the value and significance of friendship and family, especially that of the relationship between parent and child. Throughout the film, I couldn't help but wipe stray tears for the fact that it is simply amazing to see such love, affection, and caring that one single person, a father nonetheless, could feel for his loved ones. The hardships that a family has to go through after losing a loved one, but none less likely than that of a father losing his son/best friend (as Balraaj loses his son, his buddy, Avi). A scenic example: Balraaj witnesses the pain that his daughter is feeling after the loss of his son. He appears at the balcony and begins looking up at the stars, and begins talking to his son (but really talking to himself in comfort). Two great musical compositions give effect to the emotional states that each character are in: One would be Rajat performing at a concert that Millie and Balraaj attend. ("Bebasi Dard Ka..."). The other is simply used throughout the film, but the best portion is at the end/credits ("Kehta Hai..").
