| Could have been much better. Good story, exaggerated portrayal.
Well, first, I enjoyed this film - I liked the realistic portrayal of the modern-day urban India of the 1980s, I immensely liked the background score, the cinematography, the dialogues. But I totally HATED the unrealistic concept of an entire nation going crazy about one simple man without a completely justified reason and considering him their God. What I found even more laughable is that when he wants to go, they sing a song for him. It was so clichéd that I lost any interest in the film. I don't get why good stories must go to unnecessary edges. The entire story revolves around this admiration. Anyway, Amitabh in one of his better performances of the 1980s, is great, and Shabana Azmi, who is beautiful and as always natural, provides great support. Go for it if you like - I see why the film is widely appreciated, but I frankly don't find it underrated as many people here say.
