Hemant Shah is a stockbroker. He is a middle-class person who leads a normal life like any other commoner. When his time picks up, he uses the loopholes and becomes a bull in the stock market. When the economy changes its path, Hemant had to face the consequences. What happened to his business? Was he able to survive? The answers form the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Abhishek Bachchan played his role neatly and impresses. Ileana did a decent job. Soham Shah, Saurabh Shukla and Ram Kapoor fit well in the given roles.


The film is based on some real-life incidents. Although we know about some scams in the stock market, we don’t have any deep knowledge about this. So, it is hard for the team to take this vast topic and make it crisp within a couple of hours; that too with some interesting incidents to pull the audience to continue watching. The second half comes with a good narrative and the writers had put a great effort to make the movie interesting with twists and turns. The cinematography is good and the production design is excellent. Abhishek is the right choice and he fits well too. However, his character could have been developed with some more detailing.

What’s There?

  • The performance of the stars are good
  • Cinematography and production designs are appreciable

What’s Not There?

  • Dialogues should have been better
  • Characters should have been sketched with better details


The Big Bull comes with some good performances. Abhishek’s fans would enjoy the film for sure!
