review by: Murtuja Iqbal
Vikas Bahl’s Alvida starring Amitabh Bachchan, Rashmika Mandanna, Neena Gupta, and other actors is all set to hit the big screens on 7 October 2022. The trailer of the film grabbed everyone’s attention and it looked like a slice-of-life film with a perfect amount. of comedy and emotion. Well, we didn’t get to see much of Big B in the promotions but Rashmika tried her best to promote the film and created buzz for a good release. So, is goodbye worth your time and money, or would saying goodbye to this movie be a good choice? Find out in our review below…
what is it about
Goodbye is about Harish (Amitabh Bachchan) and Gayatri (Neena Gupta), and their children Rashmika Mandanna, Pavail Gulati, Abhishek Khan, and Sahil Mehta, After growing up, children are living their life away from their parents. One day Gayatri dies and the whole family comes together for her last rites. How this dysfunctional family deals with each other during this difficult time is the rest of the story…
Vikas Bahali Known for directing films like Queen magnificentAnd super 30, While Queen and Super 30 were amazing films, Superb failed to impress the audience. With Goodbye, Vikas takes us on an emotional ride. In the first 20-25 minutes, tears will start pouring out of your eyes. There are some light-hearted moments in the film, but before you get into the emotional zone once again, maybe a few seconds will put a smile on your face.
Amitabh Bachchan is a legend and he has once again proved that even at the age of 79, he can carry a film on his shoulder. Megastar’s performance is simply amazing. A small spoiler here; There is a scene in the second half, in which only Big B is seen on the screen for about 10 minutes, but his performance is so good that you do not get bored even for a moment. Extraordinary!
Neena Gupta as Gayatri looks fresh like a daisy in the film, and you will have a smile on your face whenever she appears on the big screen. Rashmika Mandanna makes her Bollywood debut with Alvida and has given a confident performance. Hindi film audiences who have seen her in Pushpa will get to see a different Rashmika in Alvida.
Pavail Gulati, Abhishek Khan, and Sahil Mehta; All these actors have given very impressive performances. Elli Avram also makes an impression and has scenes where she stands out. a special mention Sunil Grover, He is amazing in his extended cameos. After a very long time, a film has come in which all the actors have been given a very good scope to act and all have shined.
In addition to performance; Another thing that impresses us a lot is the music of Amit Trivedi, The soulful songs will surely touch the right chords of your heart.

what is not
When we talk about the negative aspects of goodbye, speed is something that comes to our mind first. The pace of the film is very slow and where at times, you may lose interest in some of the scenes. Also, some of the jokes in the first half just break the emotional connection, which is a bit disappointing.
While Rashmika has given a decent performance, her South Indian accent doesn’t go with the character. She plays the role of a girl who was born and raised in Chandigarh and works in Mumbai. But, she speaks Hindi with a South Indian accent, and that is one of the negative points of the film.
BL Verdict: Goodbye ain’t no Queen or Super 30, but it’s not a splendid one either. Vikas Bahl takes us on an emotional roller-coaster with Amitabh Bachchan leading it with his stellar performances. You can definitely watch goodbye at least once with your family and don’t forget to carry some tissue boxes with you.
