It was a casual evening watching TimesNow Newshour where Amitabh Bacchan appeared with Arnab Goswamy for the promotion of the movie Shamitabh. I asked my dad if we could watch the movie at nearby Fun Cinemas and to my surprise he immediately agreed! I did not waste any time and quickly booked the tickets through bookmyshow.com. The total cost of Gold tickets (what was balcony ticket earlier) for two was INR 500 with an additional fee of INR 92 for internet. I decided to use payumoney for payments that saved me INR 75 on this transaction and paid INR 492 for the tickets! The time was set, 10:59 am on a Friday morning. The seats were pre-selected and we had a typical Punjabi breakfast with Gobhi paranthas and started for V3S Mall, Laxmi Nagar.
We went walking towards V3S Mall Fun Cinemas and exchanged the online printout for tickets at 10:30 am. The entry for the auditorium was opened at 10:40 am and at 10:50 am we were watching the trailers in the hall. The movie started at sharp 10:55am. It was a pleasure watching Amitabh Bachan with Dhanush and Antara. The movie was a bit technical in its description about the device and certain scenes such as adult scene post-interval could have been avoided. Overall, the movie was a great experience as it gave us 2.5 hours away from busy life and in front of a large screen.
The acting of all actors was superb! My dad enjoyed the movie and I believe my investment of INR 500 gave me high returns! I do not really bother much about the movie critic reviews. For me, Shamitabh is a winner.
