Paa - movie poster


The Hindi movie Paa, produced by AB Corp Ltd (Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd or ABCL), is a new effort by Amitabh Bachchan’s film production and entertainment company to come back into film production in a big way, after the huge failure of Family: Ties of Blood (2006). Paa, scheduled for release on December 4, 2009 is directed by R Balakrishnan with music by veteran composer Ilaiyaraaja, stars Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan and Vidya Balan.

Paa has an unusual story of father-son relationship, with Abhishek Bachchan playing the role of the father and Amitabh Bachchan as his son. It is the story of a 13 year old boy who suffers from Progeria, a rare genetic disorder in which condition symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at an early age (Has it to do something related to Benjamin Button? At least in the reverse order, or inspired by Button?) The movie is produced at a moderate budget of Rs 15 crore. Reportedly more films are in the pipeline from Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Ltd.
