A lot of expectations were set for Abhishek Bachchan‘s The Big Bull as it was preceded by a brilliantly made web series that was also based on the life of Harshad Metha – a stockbroker who was the mastermind behind a Rs. 5000 crore scam.

In this film, Hemant Shah (Bachchan) starts off as a broker who then finds loopholes in the Indian banking system and uses that to manipulate the stock market and make a boatload of money. His rise from being a common man to a messiah for the common man triggers an investigative journalist, played by Ileana D’Cruz, to find out the truth behind his meteoric rise to wealth.

Abhishek Bachchan hits the bull’s eye

While the film in its entirety may have had a few issues, Abhishek’s acting as Hemant Shah is quite good. His performance definitely gave us some ‘Guru’ vibes and we couldn’t help but think that the actor certainly found a genre that works to his strengths. While his chemistry with his wife Priya Shah (Nikita Dutta) feels forced and not convincing, Bachchan on his own, manages to deliver.

The stocks of this film rise and fall

The movie does a decent job in terms of telling us a story about a fascinating man whose ambitions drove him to the heights of success but his pride made him think he was invincible. The scenes which revolve around Hemant’s run-ins with the police and his political connections that turn out to have scandalizing implications are what helps pick up the pace of the film. This Kookie Gulati drama also has its typical Bollywood touch especially when it comes to Hemant and Priya’s love story.


When you watch a film based on a story that’s been made recently famous, it’s going to be viewed with a critical eye. Sadly, this is the case for Abhishek Bachchan’s The Big Bull. While the comparison may not be completely fair given the story had to be told in 2 hours and 30 mins, the benchmark was set high nonetheless.

This film can definitely go on your weekend watchlist and makes for a good one-time watch. It will be even more enjoyable for those who haven’t watch Scam 1922.
