    What the hell is going on. I see Amitabh Bachchan in every movie these days. Its becoming like a good luck thing now. [If Big B is in the movie=The movie will run well] I understand that he had some financial difficulty as he suffered a huge loss from his ABC company. But that doesnt mean he has to accept every role that comes his way. Every movie that I've seen for the past month, Big B was in it. He should stop monopolizing the film industry and give others a chance for a change. Senior actors like Tinu Anand, OM Puri, Amrish Puri, etc have just become side actors. Anyways what do you guys think of Big B turning Bollywood into Bachchanwood(meh.. it rhymes).

    He was in financial doldrums but now he is completely out of it..
    and yes ..make no mistake..he is not doing movies now just to clear his debts..
    These days..writers are writing tailor made roles for him...they are writing keeping him in mind as central character..so how can yo imagine the role to be performed by somebody else if it is written keeping him in mind...

    and yes,,..in bollywood,there is no gurantee that Mr. X or Y's presence will do wonders to the film...There are films in recent past too which boomed at box office even after his presence...

    :beer:

    I dont mind him doing the serious roles that he's good at. The movie Deewar was a good movie for him. However, the movie Lakshya had no need for Amitabh's character. He was just there for like 3 scenes. Whats the point of that???

    AB is great the same AB as Sholay or Baghban or Mohabattein..

    Abishek bachchan is just not getting the right roles for him to play. He is suited for only one type of role. I liked his 'Bas Itna sa khwab hai'. Abishek is only waiting for a hit.

    Liked him in YUVA...

    He acted naturally...

    and yes...he is not made for those stereotyped college going dude roles...
    Think he can perform some serious ones..needs a good script..and a good director..
    after all movies are a directors medium...
