THE BIG BULL is the story of a common man’s journey from rags to riches. Kookie Gulati and Arjun Dhawan's story is interesting. It is inspired from the life of Harshad Mehta, the infamous stock broker, and his experiences were fascinating, cinematically. Kookie Gulati and Arjun Dhawan's screenplay is effective at most places. Ritesh Shah's dialogues, however, are sharp. Kookie Gulati's direction is decent. On the flipside, one can’t help but draw parallels with SCAM 1992. Abhishek Bachchan gives a commendable performance and he also underplays at several places. Ileana DCruz hardly gets any scope in the first half but shines in the second half. However, she looks very unconvincing as an old lady in the present-day track. Nikita Dutta is lovely and leaves a huge mark. Sohum Shah is, as expected, dependable and maintains a strong position from start to finish.  Music is average but is well placed. Vishnu Rao's cinematography is appropriate. Durgaprasad Mahapatra's production design is rich. Darshan Jalan and Neelanchal Ghosh's costumes are reminiscent of the late 80s and early 90s era. NY VFXWaala's VFX is praiseworthy. Dharmendra Sharma's editing is too slick and quick at places.

On the whole, THE BIG BULL gets affected due to the comparisons with SCAM 1992. Yet, it stands out at several places and works due to the performances, the dramatic moments and the unexpected finale.
