"Praising 'Kaal' simply means applauding the director, Rakesh Roshan," the 66-year-old said here Thursday at a special screening of the film.
"This family, the hero and Rakesh Roshan have given Vivek a new life, new confidence, new beginning and I don't think I have seen a better film than this," he added.
Vivek also seconds his father and calls Rakesh Roshan the Steven Spielberg of India.
"Whatever he (Suresh Oberoi) has said is absolutely true. I saw the film today (Thursday) for the first time and I forgot that I am Kaal. I was enjoying the film like a kid. I was laughing and crying," said Vivek.
"He (Rakesh Roshan) is a legend, a master and with this film he has shown that he is the Steven Spielberg of India," the 37-year-old added.
