Badla: Amitabh Bachchan mouths father Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s poem and gives us goosebumps
After PINK (that released in 2016) Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu will be seen together once again on the big screen in Sujoy Ghosh’s Badla. It is undoubtedly one of the most awaited Bollywood movies of 2019. The film is produced by Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment and will be hitting the screens on March 8, 2019. The promotions of the film have been quite moderate, but the makers are trying to create a buzz on social media quite well. It was on Monday when the makers released a video titled Badla Unplugged in which Shah Rukh Khan was seen interviewing Amitabh Bachchan. It is amazing to see the two legends coming together and sharing the same frame. Now, the makers have released a video in which we can hear Big B mouthing a poem written by his father - poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
The megastar is mouthing the poem Gudiya and we must say that the makers have used perfect background music to give it a thriller feel. Badla is a suspense thriller and Big B mouthing this poem in his baritone with that background music will certainly pique your curiosity. Taapsee also took to Twitter to share the video and in her tweet she has written, “Just like there's a Gudiya in a gudiya, is there another layer in each of Naina's sach?” The poem stands parallel to the film’s concept.
Badla is an official adaptation of Spanish film The Invisible Guest that released in 2017. Though it received an average response from the critics, it was a hit at the box office. Now let’s see what will be the fate of Badla. While talking about his film being an adaptation, Sujoy told Mumbai Mirror, “I’ve made a lot of changes, for me, it was a fresh story written with Indian sensibilities in mind. I understand some may know the premise, but at the end of the day, it’s the approach that matters. There will be people who would watch this film to see how I’ve adapted the original film and also those who aren’t even aware that this is an adaptation.”
