On the recurring theme of protagonists with a dark sense of humor and a touch of arrogance in R Balki’s films, Virmani attributed it to the filmmaker’s distinct style. He explained that this element has become associated with Balki’s films, similar to how Farhan Akhtar’s movies are often expected to bring a refreshing and new perspective. Virmani discussed how characters like Amitabh Bachchan’s role in Cheeni Kum were intentionally crafted with a certain sarcasm and wit that matched the character’s circumstances.

Big B’s Dialogue Delivery

Amitabh Bachchan’s dialogues carry a distinct impact that sets him apart from any other actor in the industry. His involvement in our creative process has been integral from the very inception. In fact, the decision to bring forth films like Cheeni Kum and various others heavily relied on his association. R Balki, known for his commitment to excellence, doesn’t settle for anything less than quality and impact.

Amitabh and Abhishek play Perfect Drunkards?

The similarities between Amitabh Bachchan and R Balki are striking. Both share a delightful sense of humor, unassuming humility, and a remarkable ability to connect with every individual on the set. Their common talent also lies in their remarkable portrayal of intoxicated characters. Interestingly, they excel at depicting the state of inebriation better than even individuals who are truly drunk. Whether it’s seen in Ghoomer or Shamitabh (2015), attentive listeners will detect instances of well-placed slurring in their dialogue delivery. This strategic use of slurring, focusing on certain words that become difficult to articulate under the influence, adds a layer of authenticity to their performances. Their skill in these sequences can be likened to having earned an advanced degree in portraying such nuanced aspects with absolute finesse.
