AMITABH was the only actor in this bad movie
Family is a poor movie with some of the worst acting by most cast, Aryeman the ever wrong doer of the movie, Akshay Kumar who has forgotten all his so-called acting skills, Bhumika chawla who is as bad as ever. The only actor who could act was Amitabh Bachchan who is a thoroughbred, like billions of his fans I watched this crappy movie only for the legend called Amitabh.
There is too much of violence in the movie, it is not for children. Amitabh as the villain plays superbly, his arrogance, style & dialogues tower like a lighthouse amidst pitch darkness. No wonder he is the most supreme actor in world cinema. Contrast to this angry old man role with Viruddh where he plays a very meek old man & you will know what Amitabh is all about. Phenomenal to say the least. The best scene being Amitabh pouring a jug full of water on the head of Kader Khan.
Family has no punch, the script is shoddy, Kader Khan & Raza Murad have been wasted. The movie is very badly directed & one gets the feeling that Raj Kumar Santoshi might have directed this movie in sleep. You just cannot believe he is the one who directed Damini a realistic & hard hitting movie. Not every actor is as lucky as Akshay Kumar is, his father in law being Rajesh Khanna, the actor who is as good as Amitabh is, but Akshay seemed to have learnt nothing from his legendary Rajesh Khanna. Akshay is a very poor hero who just cannot act or emote. The worst part played was by the squint eye Aryeman who cannot even open his eyes fully.
