Why did the last two releases of Abhishek Bachchan failed to do well at the Box Office? First, there was “Raavan”, where the audience did not accept him as the rustic and over the top Raavan in the Hindi version of the film.
Choosing Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey as the next project seemed to be a calculated step taken by Junior Bachchan. In Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey, Abhishek essayed the role of a dhoti clad revolutionary and his acting could be described in just a word- subtle. In spite of that, the film did not shine at the box office. Now what is Abhishek Bachchan supposed to do that will make him click with the audience again?.
After having delivered hits like Guru, Dostana, Delhi 6, Bluffmaster and Paa, it is a known fact that AB Baby can act. In the recent past, Abhishek has been very careful in choosing the directors and banners he is working with. Raavan had the cinematic genius Mani Ratnam in the director’s chair, while Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey had Ashutosh Gowarikar, who has become a pro in making period movies.
What we all can’t fathom is why a good actor like Abhishek Bachchan is going unnoticed? With films like Department, Game, Players and Dum Maro Dum in the pipeline, we can only expect him to connect with the audience again. Here’s wishing him all the best.
