Watch the film for Bachchan.. Every time you feel you have seen every facet of his acting, he astonishes you with another!
Anuj Kumar (The Hindu)
Going to watch The Last Lear is like an invitation to a five course dinner. Amitabh is awesome, sombre, pruding, eloquent and flamboyant. By all means, do go and watch this film. Barun Chanda, The Telegraph
Bachchan shines as this Lear. He’ll probably never get a role like this. Like Harry, they don’t, make actors like him anymore.Deepa Gahlot, (The Deccan Chronicle)
What do we say to the genius of Amitabh Bachchan….except Salaam, Mr.Bachchan. Salaam.Subhash K Jha (The Sunday Indian)
Meet the Shakespeare of acting.. no one should miss watching such a momentous mount.
Meenakshi Rao (The Pioneer)
Bachchan is flamboyant, assured and catty. Rampal, restrained and implosive, is excellent… The Last Lear, a pedestral for the histrionics of Mr. Bachchan.
Khalid Mohamed (The Hindustan Times)
Just Wow! The Last Lear is filled with luminous performances.
Riva (The Deccan Herald)
Watch it for Big’s B, it’s among Bachchan’s finest!
Vinayak Chakravorthy (Mail Today)
Amitabh Bachchan as the eccentric and passionate ex-theatre actor is delightful!
Namrata Tanna (Times Now)
But at the heart of the film is Harry… an extraordinary performance by Amitabh Bachchan… Give this film a chance!
Rajeev Masand (CNN IBN)
Not to be missed for anything. Spend even your last rupee to watch a masterpiece.
The Last Lear is my favourite Rituparno film, my favourite Bachchan film, my favourite film of the year.
The actor is at his unconditional best.. This is Bachchan’s masterpiece.
