Mani Rathnam’s Ok Bnagaram has been getting rave reviews by the public and critics alike. Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan recently saw the tamil version (O Kadhal Kanmani) of the film and and the megastar is all praises for the film and its actors. He says that the story is told in an endearing way, capturing the essence of the changing times.
The 72-year-old took to his official blog to share his views about the film after watching it with his daughter Shweta Nanda. “Shweta and I get to see Mani Ratnam’s new and fresh Tamil film at a trial, and it is a sweet and endearing story of love among the young. Fresh and with a sense of the changing times, in keeping with the sensibilities of this generation, it shows compassion and example with great dexterity,” wrote Amitabh Bachchan.
“Ratnam Values are not lost in the practices that this generation may desire, but sufficient understanding on both parts is beautifully portrayed by two young performers who play the lead.’’ He added
Big B showered praises on lead cast and he wrote ‘’ They are a delight to watch – the boy, Mammootty’s son .. Mammootty the mega star of Malayalam Cinema in Kerala .. and equally a sprightly love interest in his opposite number .. a young lady of enormous verve. The unaffected way that the generation of today performs and represents themselves to the audience is so remarkable, that there is so much to learn from them, observe in them, accumulate from them,”
That’s really great words from the legendary actor and it means a lot to the director Mani Ratnam.
