We may have seen Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Amrish Puri and our Anil Kapoor in Hollywood movies but this is the first time India's mega super star Amitabh Bachchan will be seen in a A-League hollywood movie - The Great Gatsby.
Warner Brothers brings this "The Great Gatsby" directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The film is based on an Americal novel "The Great Gatsby".
The novel "The Great Gatsby" first published in 1925, and republished in 1945 and 1953. There are already four different movie adaptation for the film but the latest one is coming on Dec 25th 2012. Its quite interesting for Indian movie goers because Amitabh Bachchan is in The Great Gatsby.
Even though he has a very small role in the film, I don't think he is going Ga-Ga over that like Anil Kapoor did for his "MI-4 Ghost Protocol".
The good thing about "The Great Gatsby" is that they have even included Amitabh's role in their official trailer. Not like MI-4 where we couldn't find Anil Kapoor. Check out the official trailer of Amitabh Bachchan's The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby Movie Preview
The story reloves around a millioner named Jay Gatsby. A would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings.
Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits.
As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
