The upcoming sports drama Ghoomer, starring Abhishek Bachchan, was evaluated by actor Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh admitted to crying while watching Ghoomer twice on his blog early on Tuesday. Amitabh also commended R Balki, the director of Ghoomer. Ghoomer stars Saiyami Kher and Abhishek Bachchan in leading roles.

Amitabh wrote, “So yes saw Ghoomer back to back twice .. Sunday afternoon .. and then at night again .. and the verdict is beyond mention .. simply incredible.. eyes have been in the aqua flow from the very first frame .. and when the progeny is involved, they flow copiously .. and each reaction has some wonder in their thoughts and words and deeds .. each notices something that is so endearing and appealing.” He also added, “The emotions relate to yes the game of cricket and the tale of a girl and her ambition .. but it is really the feel of the depiction and its impress upon not just the game, but of the effect of family, of the mother, of what middle India stands for in our lives is the simplicity of the way the narration occurs .. it is the deftness with which R Balki has knitted before us, in the simplest of manner, a most complex idea .. of losers and winners .. of what each one of us has been through.” Amitabh also wrote, “Of that most powerful written spoken word: Ek loser kya mehsoos karta hai, woh toh mujhe maloom hai; main dekhna chahta hun ki ek winner kya, kaese mehsoos karte hai. I know what a loser feels , and experiences ; I want to know what a winner feels and experiences .. sheer brilliance in the writing and in expression what each one of us have experienced in our lives.” The actor concluded, “Each of us ..each one of us have faced failure at some point or the other in our lives .. and we are aware and know how it feels .. but .. how does a winner feel when he succeeds .. that is the challenge we all face .. we all strive for .. we all struggle for .. and then when we find that door is shut .. we break it open and ENTER .. to achieve what we have wanted to all our lives ..that is the learning .. the template of living ..and when it is portrayed in a most creative subtle manner .. the respect and applaud is tremendous.”

Abhishek Bachchan starrer Ghoomer is all set to release in theatres this week. During the press conference, Junior Bachchan revealed that Amitabh Bachchan has a cameo appearance in the film.
