Ganapath is a dystopian action film that revolves around the journey of Guddu, a street-smart hustler who transforms into Ganapath, a fearless vigilante who leads a rebellion against a ruthless criminal syndicate. The film is directed by Vikas Bahl and stars Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon and Amitabh Bachchan in pivotal roles.
The plot of Ganapath is intriguing and ambitious, as it attempts to explore a genre that is not very common in Bollywood. The film has some unexpected twists and turns that keep the audience engaged and curious. The film also has a strong message of hope and courage in the face of oppression and injustice. However, the plot suffers from a lot of flaws, such as a predictable climax, a weak villain and a lack of depth in some characters. The film should have been more nuanced and original in its execution.
The performances of Ganapath are decent, but not exceptional, as the lead actors do their best with the given material. Tiger Shroff plays Ganapath, a street-smart hustler who becomes a rebel leader. He displays his physical prowess and agility in the action sequences, but he lacks the emotional depth and range to portray the different shades of his character. He also fails to create a strong chemistry with his co-star Kriti Sanon, who plays Jassi, a warrior who supports Ganapath. Kriti Sanon is better than Tiger Shroff in terms of acting, as she shows some spunk and spirit in her role. She also handles the action scenes with confidence and grace. Amitabh Bachchan, though having a limited screen time, adds value to the film with his presence and voice. He plays the mentor and guide of Ganapath, who motivates him to fulfil his destiny. The supporting cast, including Rahman, Jameel Khan, Girish Kulkarni and Shruthy Menon, also do justice to their roles.
The film is a disappointing attempt to create a futuristic action spectacle, and it falls short of its potential due to its poor VFX and lacklustre script. The film has some decent cinematography and well-designed sets that create a visually appealing world. The film also has a catchy soundtrack that complements the mood and tone of the film. However, the film is let down by its shoddy VFX that look amateurish and jarring. The film fails to create a convincing and immersive dystopian scenario due to its low-quality graphics and effects. The film also has some loopholes and inconsistencies in its script that hamper its logic and coherence.
Ganapath is a mess of a film that offers some good action scenes, but it could have been much better if it had improved its VFX and script. The film is not worth watching for anyone, except for Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon’s die-hard fans, but they may also be disappointed by their lacklustre chemistry and acting.
