The Big Bull Trailer REVIEW: Abhishek Bachchan’s Gujarati Accent Is Bang-On
The Big Bull which is NOT a Harshad Mehta biopic (heh heh) has Abhishek Bachchan cast as a Harshad Mehta doppelganger named Hemant Shah who causes havoc in the stock market in the 1990s. The trailer which was released a few minutes back shows Abhishek Bachchan doing a really subtle Gujju accent. He has done it before when he played a Dhirubhai Ambani doppelganger (damn these copyright rules!). Many consider Mani Ratnam’s Guru to be Abhishek’s best performance to date. The Big Bull could change that.

 The trailer is fast paced, almost wheezy in its breathlessness. And that’s just the right tempo and mood to show the protagonist’s impatience to become rich and successful. When someone offers Hemant  Shah a  drink  in the trailer,  he  smirks delicately and with a twinkle in his dreaming eyes he says, “I will drink only when I can afford the best liquor.” Cheers to that.

 Says a lot about the broker’s back-breaking ambitions. The trailer has some sturdy supporting actors like Ram Kumar and Saurabh Shukla who seem to have a lot of say in Harshad/Hemant’s life. Ileana D’Cruz is cast as a Sucheta Dalal doppelganger.

 Ms Dalal was instrumental in unearthing the   Harshad Mehta  scam. Here she is played by D’Cruz  as a self-important  journalist looking for a scoop. The glint in Abhishek Bachchan’s eyes suggests she  is  going to get much more than she  had  bargain for.

Going by the trailer, The Big Bull looks like a redemptive  feature  film in Disney-Hotstar’s  repertoire after the horrendous Laxmii and Sadak 2.
