Amazing script . For those who question logic in our tradition followed from ages. Big B has been amazing. We don't have to talk about his acting. But perfect example why the directors shouldn't go behind a cute face for acting. There are a lot of natural stars but a director chose a cute face over talent long back and now its haunting. Poor acting by rashmika. A good actress would have made the movie a great to watch and would add real feelings to the dialogue delivery and the scenes been played. So its just been about rashmika mandanna here. Coming to the movie a must watch for every indian..
Engrossed in celebrating her first career milestone with friends, Tara Bhalla (Rashmika Mandanna) misses her father Harish's (Amitabh Bachchan) phone calls. Her world falls apart when she wakes up to discover that those calls were made to inform her of her mother Gayatri's (Neena Gupta) untimely demise. What transpires after, forms the story.

Even Amitabh Bachchan's fine performance cannot save this ill-conceived tragi-comedy
Tragi-comedies are a very tricky genre to execute well on screen. While there have been numerous cases of success in Hollywood like "Amélie (2011)", "The Darjeeling Limited (2007)" and "Death At A Funeral (2010)", the genre is still in its nascent stage in Bollywood and India in general with only a few hits to its name, that too primarily after their OTT releases-like "Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi (2019)" and "Pagglait (2021)". So it was surprising that director Vikas Bahl, the visionary behind "Queen (2014)" and "Super 30 (2019)" chose the mainstream theatre release format for this genre-blender and it seems like this bravery was ill-conceived.
Amitabh Bachchan stars as "Harish Bhalla", the patriarch of the Bhalla household, who is just coming to terms with the sudden death of his loving wife "Gayatri", played by the effervescent Neena Gupta. Tasked with informing their busy and distant children of the tragic news, how he navigates the ensuing funeral and the idiosyncrasies of the family as they come together after a long time form the rest of the narrative. Rashmika Mandanna plays "Tara", Harish's only daughter and designated black sheep, after her consistent scorn towards his religious conservatism, made worse by her choice to go against his wishes and date a Muslim.
Despite its intriguing premise and a group of fine actors, a disjointed screenplay that moves along like a sequence of unrelated scenes without any real cohesion makes "Goodbye" a tedious watch. The director that gave us such natural comedy in "Queen" struggles to mount situations that deliver genuine humour, with most of the gags coming across as forced and contrived. Rashmika struggles with her Hindi accent as expected, this being her first Hindi original movie, but makes the best of an underwritten role, especially in the emotional sequences.
We are noboby to judge an Amitabh Bachchan performance and the veteran tries his best to salvage a meandering script. A scene where he gives a final goodbye to his beloved wife is a sure tearjerker but such sequences are few and far between in an otherwise, largely lackluster project which oscillates between drama and comedy inorganically, failing to deliver in both genres with equal aplomb. "Goodbye" is one film where I couldn't wait for the film to end and say "Goodbye" to an abysmal theatre experience. Not recommended!
Here the makers have shown true faces of family members at the crucial times
The attempt for this kind of content was seen on OTT before also and with good execution..here the execution was very dull and stretchy..humour started well but failed to continue ..after the cremation the content was lost and was being dragged
Amitabhji the institute of acting touched with his emotions..sunil charmed with his small role rest every one were normal
This was purely a ott kind but the makers dared for open release where offering tickets at discounts could not help them to get the crowd.
