Shamitabh is at best a half-baked effort as a movie but delivers full blown delight in the form of India`s most recognized and loved baritone - that of Amitabh Bachchan.
R. Balki has the penchant for the unusual. And this one is extremely inverted! Amitabh Bachchan as Amitabh Sinha plays a failed actor who is a drunkard. Dhanush as Danish is a mute who desires to become an actor but he cannot as a consequence of his condition. They meet serendipitously at a graveyard. Through a technology called `Live Voice Transfer`, Danish is able to borrow Amitabh`s and they are able to utilize each other to get what they want.
Akshara Haasan as Akshara Pandey plays an assistant director who recognizes Danish`s talent and helps him land a role. Shamitabh is ultimately a story where destiny gets the better of the protagonists before giving them a lease of home that ultimately does run very short.
