Big B emotional after watching 'English Vinglish'
"A viewing of 'English Vinglish' directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R. Balki, leaves me with collective lumps in the throat and a surge of flushed eyes near the tear ducts. And it is not all the emotion of a particular moment that puts one in such state. It is the uncontrollable effect of appreciation that prevents one from expressing any at all," Amitabh wrote on his blog.
"In our simplicity lies the true story of a lifetime. Massive explosions and devastating action sequences make you wonder in high adrenalin awe. But equally, the ordinariness of everyday life, strikes many strings that work together in sympathetic chords. It is complex and most difficult to be weathered in by simplistic endeavour," he added.
The 69-year-old actor says he was surprised by the creative talent that has emerged over 100 years in Indian cinema.
"The revelation of immense creative talent in this 100 years of Indian Cinema, surprises me with each passing day. The verve and vigour and enthusiasm of the myriad hopefuls in this elaborate and exceedingly competitive profession, is to be seen and experienced," he said.
"What wonderful times we live in. How compelling it has become to view each new and fresh concept with wonder and awe, and how frustrating to not be today among the calibre of those that are designing the rules of the game!!" he added.
