Amitabh Bachchan is a 102 year old man. Rishi Kapoor is his son. Drama between them happens to be the crux of the story.
Amitabh Bachchan has lived as a 102 year man, he strikes gold with his dialogue delivery and body language. Rishi Kapoor stands on the roof-top with his crackling performance. And the chemistry between them is splendid. Jimit Trivedi has done his supporting role nicely. Umesh Shukla’s direction is neat, he has given his best especially when things turn serious towards the finish line. George Joesph’s background score is soothing and pleasant to the situations. Laxman Utekar’s camera work is decent, he has delivered what the script demands. Dialogues are apt for all the artists in all the scenes. Climax scene is superb and emotionally connects too.
Knot is so simple and most importantly it is thin like a short film, so stretching it for 100mins is indeed a risky job. Writers have actually done a sloppy job by putting the pressure completely on the performances. Screenplay has zero entertainment value, the film is realistic in that way but the excitement factor goes missing. Except the ending, no other scenes give an impact or a hard feeling towards the lead actors. Film restricts between three major artists, hence the exposure space becomes less. On the whole, the film seems to be frequently disengaging material, ordinary editing is also a reason.
TO CONCLUDE – Sparkling performances of Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor makes it a watchable drama.
Movie Rating – 2.5/ 5.
