Yudh: Why We Liked And Disliked Amitabh Bachchan’s Entry

yudh 01 [tps_footer]Amitabh Bachchan’s fiction debut on Television had garnered a lot of headlines. From his look to the premise of the show, everything was broadly discussed and debated. Finally, the first episode of the show called Yudh was screened on Sony. Obviously, everybody was waiting for the magic to happen which did, but sparsely.

First, it is always engaging to watch Amitabh Bachchan on screen, size of the same doesn’t matter. He is gripping, intelligent and absolutely invigorating. It seems there is hardly any role that this man can’t portray. He seemed pretty at ease with the show, which has been shot like a film. All this while we watched him quiz contestants and help them earn lakhs and crores. In Yudh, we got introduced to a man dying of a terminal illness but is uncompromising.

Interestingly, the opening scene is pretty bright, very unlike Anurag Kashyap. And before we could mull over it, the scenes were plunged into grimness and intense shades pertaining to the theme of the show. We agree grimness is Kashyap’s favourite tone, a bit of sunlight won’t do you any harm.

We agree the show might get interesting as it progresses, but this Television industry still believes in first impression is the best impression. With a plethora of channels to switch to, it is important that one entice the viewers in first stroke. Unfortunately, Yudh falls short here.

But what we found absolutely charismatic is the lead and the supporting cast. If Amitabh Bachchan is a clincher, the supporting cast of Kay Kay Menon, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Zakir Hussain and Sarika is the best in Television. India has never seen a television cast of such nature and it makes us really proud. [/tps_footer]
