Movie Info

Indian movie icon Amitabh Bachchan commands the screen as an aging actor lured out of retirement by an ambitious young auteur in this drama that marks the veteran actor's first-ever English-speaking film role. Harish Misra (Bachchan) believes he has already done everything possible in the world of film. Vain, passionate, and terminally strong-willed, the enormously talented retiree has abandoned the world of cinema and retreated from the modern world to the comforts of his lavish study. Despite his determination never to return to the screen, however, Harish is eventually persuaded to return to film by ambitious young director Siddharth (Arjun Rampal). But once on set, Harish simply can't relate to the younger cast members, and scoffs at the artifice of contemporary cinema. Upon completing his punishing performance, Harish falls into a coma. Though worrisome co-star Shabnam (Preity Zinta) clearly has a genuine sense of concern for the gravely ill Harish, director Siddharth remains inexplicably distant through the whole ordeal. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
