The title song of Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap posted on YouTube early Monday morning, June 6, packs more thrills than the theatrical trailer posted earlier.
The 2m 10s YouTube video has Bachchan singing the title song acapella in the background while bashing up bad men in the foreground. It has some old fashioned action sequences harking back to the days when Bachchan ruled supreme as Bollywood's action hero.
Lanky and Frail then, Bachchan looked unconvincing beating up bad men, but fans loved to see him do it. Lanky, frail and old now, Bachchan looks even more unconvincing beating up bad men. The question is will his fans still lap it up? Especially so since his fans are around his age and hardly watch movies?
Does Bachchan have a large enough fan base amidst the youth who throng multiplexes? The youth which normally watches buff bodies like the Khans or Devgn bashing up bad people?
We just have to wait and see? It's not a long wait anymore. The film hits screens nationwide on July 1.
Puri Jagannath directed Bbuddah Hoga Terra Baap is an attempt to put the clock back for Bachchan, the question is does the clock still have enough juice in its batteries?
