Amitabh Bachchan in awe of God FatherThe legend of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan who himself has essayed the lead role in the "God Father" remake is all praise for the original series.
On his blog post where he connects with his millions of fans, he recently wrote "There is something so mesmerising about the "Godfather" that even after so many years of its making and release, it still remains fresh and attractive every time you see it."
"On a rare off day today, I remained that lazy unperturbed bird, curled up on a couch and back to back watched the Godfather Series perhaps a version which was the directors cut and so a longer version and having scenes that were not seen before," he wrote on his micro blogging site.
The first time Big B saw the film was in England when English films didn't hit the Indian theatres for months after their release. "Salim Sahab and Javed Sahab were with me in London for a short break during the shooting of 'Sholay' and we were desperate to see the film at the first opportunity. We discovered that a nearby town was screening the film in a small unknown theater and we caught a train to get to the venue to catch the film," he writes on his blog.
He believes "God Father" is one of those films that remain with you for eternity. " Godfather, Gone with the Wind, Kaagaz ke Phool, Limelight just their mention brings so many moments back to us," he writes. And we couldn't agree more.
