You can cite many reasons: Amitabh Bachhan, Dhanush, R Balki, Illiaraja, Films promo looks good, Film looks fresh etc etc….. recently I saw the second trailer: Shamitabh‘s 2nd trailer is mindblowing! The mannerisms of Amitabh Bachchan which Dhanush copied with finesse, the Immortal voice of Amitabh on Dhanush’s face…. and the Dialogue: Ye awaz kisi kutte ke muh se bhi achchi lagegi! simply leave you awestruck!!
The Best part of Shamitabh would be Young Hero Dhanush and Amitabh’s Voice. An unmatched combination. And what a perfect second bollywood appearance of Dhanush after Ranjhanaa! What a smart way to enhance the weak points (as per bollywood) of Dhanush: 1. Looks: Criticized for looks, Dhanush proved that acting is important not looks. Now he stands tall in front of Amitabh, as if announcing, yes I am here to conquer bollywood too!! In Shamitabh he complimented his looks with Amitabh’s voice. 2. South Indian accent: Perhaps biggest problem of all the South Indian stars. But replacing his voice with the Deep, baritone, world famous voice of Amitabh Bachchan is the biggest plus point! Who could have thought that!! It is debatable who is helping whose career in Shamitabh: 1. Amitabh Bachhan: Doesnt need any thing to boost. He is the secret of Boost! 2. Dhanush: He’s the biggest crowd puller (in south) as well in North after Ranhanaa. Definitely a Plus for Shamitabh and Dhanush 3. R Balki: Growing with each movie… Cheeni Kum, Paa and Now Shamitabh. The best thing about R Balki is he never makes you sad in the movies. Even in Paa, where everyone felt, ending would be sad he made us smile. It would be interesting… awaiting….. A First day watch for sure!!
