The most Herculean task about the latest release PAA was transforming a 67-year old Amitabh Bachchan into 13-year old child Auro, suffering from a rare disorder called progeria. So come let’s take a short run-through over how Amitabh became Auro.

Now you can see what’s hidden

The prosthetic makeup, as we know, has been done by Hollywood‘s Christien Tinsley (THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST, CATWOMAN) and Dominie Till (THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY).

According to the reports Bachchan’s make-up cost 10 per cent of the total budget.

It is learnt that it used to take four to five hours daily for Amitabh Bachchan’s makeup to be done for his film PAA.

Not only this, if it used to take four hours to put on the make-up then two hours to remove it.

There are eight different layers of clay which has been put in his make up in the film.

While applying the make up he cannot eat, drink and talk for four hours.

Most of the performance comes out because of the make up.

Big B wore specially designed dentures so as to effortlessly replicate the voice of a 13-year old child.

He gets a lisp and his speech pattern gets altered because of the extra teeth.

He wore the dentures throughout the film’s shooting and also had them on while dubbing.

Infact he has also sung a song in his voice wearing these dentures, which sounds like a child.

But Big B never ever showed a sign of panic, on the contrary he was always co-operative, patient, cool and full of enthusiasm.

Paa Hindi Film The Story :  Paa is an emotional father-son relationship with the ailment as the back-drop.

Paa Bollywood Movie Review :
From the looks of it, the film seems to be inspired in parts by Robin Williams starrier “Jack”, and the Brad Pitt starrier “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”.  The Progeria part could very well give the movie a whole new direction and the apparent similarities with those Hollywood movie will be disregarded if the storyline, direction, and action are good.
Touted as Amitabh Bachchan’s most challenging (and the best?) role till date, the movie is a potential hit. Let’s wait for 4th December 2009, yes that’s the release date of Paa.

I was mesmerized by the poster or Paa the first time I saw it ! I mean, just look at the Big B .. He is is just so so different ! And I decided that I have to see this film come what may… I live in a town where the nearest cinema showing Indian movies is around 46 miles away, but I will not miss this one… And if I do, I will watch it on I am just hoping that Amitabh doesnt start overacting to make the character more convincing. Especially in such roles, even a bit of overacting will kill all the effort put into the makeup !
