Abhishek Bachchan’s The Big Bull is finally here. The film has been in the headlines ever since its trailer dropped, and people were looking forward to comparing Junior B’s performance with Pratik Gandhi of Scam 1992. The film is said to have been loosely based on the life of Harshad Mehta, a stockbroker in the 90s who was involved in a huge financial scam during that time. Directed by Kookie Gulati, the film had mixed reactions on Twitter, with some applauding Abhishek’s dedication to the art to some who found his wanting compared to Gandhi’s performance.
No offence to Abhishek Bachhan but no one can match the swag of Prateik Gandhi , he has set a standard which cannot be reached— zefroon (@zefroon1) March 16, 2021
He didn’t portray Harshad Mehta , he became Harshad Mehta#TheBigBull #IStandWithShringiYadav #NationalVaccinationDay #108MPCaptureInfinity #tuesdayvibe pic.twitter.com/zPDRCtpxxi
@juniorbachchan #TheBigBull shows again that you are the Guru of the upcoming years in cinema, too bad the screenplay and dialogues could not create the necessary Dhoom on this one.— Pradnesh Naik (@psn_jr) April 8, 2021
hope to see you in a movie which can match up to your calibre soon
best wishes 🙂👍🏻
Really disappointed with #TheBigBull— Siddharth Alok Mittal (@sidalok7) April 8, 2021
Completely twisted HM’s story to differentiate itself from the web series, for no good reason.
It’s really sad to see the talent of @juniorbachchan being wasted in such a way.#TheBigBullWatchParty #DisneyPlusHotstar #MotherOfAllScams
Abhishek Bachchan’s best act (on par with Guru).. Ileana is in fine form asusual.. good direction but editing could have been better.. that said, this is engaging despite watching the exceptional Scam 1992, definitely worth a one time watch 👍 #TheBigBull pic.twitter.com/HlCWjx1Rel— Akshith (@KhiladiRulez) April 8, 2021
Portraying Harshad Mehta in the worst way possible !! #TheBigBull failed to deliver to the #Scam1992 fans. It is much better to watch #Scam1992 again than watching #TheBigBull….! pic.twitter.com/brEP7S4ydd— Lakshay Bhatia (@Lakshay19272455) April 8, 2021
Watched #TheBigBull. You, @juniorbachchan, are heart and soul of the movie. By far, for me, this is your best performance after Guru, of course! Top notch acting. 🔥 What a screen presence!! Hope to see more of you in coming months, years!! 🙏🏻💛— Pa₹idhi $₹ivastava ➐🏏 (@BeingKohlicious) April 8, 2021
“Scam 1992” was better than The “Big Bull”. No doubt junior B did a good job but there was no gujrati accent and that cunning background music.. movie was shortcut of scam 1992 but both movie showed different informers for lady reporter. #TheBigBull vs #Scam1992— Jackwa 3.0 🇮🇳 (@TrueIndian20000) April 8, 2021
