It would not be wrong to call it an action-packed week. When there are two big names like Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff in the same frame, expectations are bound to skyhigh, specially regarding action. There is no doubt that Hrithik and Tiger have given their best in terms of action. Yes, if the story was strong, it would have been able to compete with any Hollywood film.
The story is of Soldier Kabir (Hrithik Roshan), who considers the country more than his life. Khalid (Tiger Shroff) wants to set an example of patriotism by taking Kabir’s under-training to wash off the sin of his father’s betraying the nation from his head. After betrayal of a soldier of his own team, Kabir’s mission fails and he then weaves another trap to catch Ilyasi(An international terrorist planning a large scale terror attack against India). He joins the dancer Naina (Vani Kapoor) in his mission by making him a civilian asset, but then something happens that Kabir starts slaughtering the officers of his country.
Khalid is assigned the responsibilty to locate him, when Khalid investigates Kabir number of secrets start to get revealed and movie moves forward along with them.
Director Siddharth Anand’s film is so rich in action, one would wish it was as rich in content also. In the film, Siddarth has neglected the story and other characters by giving equal space to Hrithik and Tiger in the run-up to their muscle and action performance. Yes, he has kept many turns and twists, which speeds up the story, but fail to serve anything new. High octane stunts and unseen locales around the world such as Kerala, Molta, Morocco, Australia, Arctic Circle are the plus points of the film.
The action of the film is wonderfully designed by Si Young O, Parvez Sheikh, Franz and Paul Jennings. Dance, action, panoramic locales and car chase scenes are worth visiting. Background music thrills faster.
There is no doubt that seeing Hrithik and Tiger in the same frame is no less than a visual treat. The chemistry of both of them is very well done on screen. Vaani Kapoor’s role is very small in the film and it is clear that its presence is essential to add glamor to the story. Ashutosh Rana has done a good job as always. Priyanka Goenka is remembered as a female secret agent. Child artiste Dishaita Sehgal has given memorable performance.
In totality it’s a movie jam packed with great action and could have been an amazing if writing was any better. Overall I would give it 3 out of 5 stars.
