I had seen the trailer of this movie a couple of months ago and was excited by the pairing of Amitabh Bachchan and Farhan Akhtar – two of of my favorite actors. I decided to watch the movie over the weekend and needless to say it is one of the better movies to have been released in the recent months. The acting by all the characters in the movie is simply awesome. Farhan Akhtar pulls of the role of an angry young man effortlessly. Amitabh Bachchan as usual is flawless. I think he is like wine, keeps getting better with age. The best part of the movie are it’s dialogues and that too when said by Amitabh Bachchan in his deep baritone – just sounds amazing. Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham have a special appearance.  The story is predictable but the way it has been portrayed using the game of chess is the most brilliant part of the movie. I do not want to share movie details here – but this is definitely one of the movies that you shouldn’t miss out on watching.
