Rohit Shetty’s much-awaited film ‘Sooryavanshi’ is finally released today and the fans have already called it a full ‘paisa vasool picture’. Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif starrer action drama is an absolute high voltage powered film. Apart from Akshay and Katrina, the film holds a massive cast of Jackie Shroff, Javed Jafferi, Gulshan Grover, Kumud Mishra, and many more.
The film starts with the 1993 Bombay bomb blast and takes a leap where ATS superior Kabir Shroff (Jaaved Jaaferi) introduces Veer Sooryavanshi (Akshay Kumar) to lead the 93 unresolved case. Just as any other Akshay Kumar entry, Veer Sooryavanshi enters the scene in a helicopter in his Khiladi avatar. The first part of the film takes a little slow phase introducing each and every character with their weightage in the film. The film after the intermission is all about the massive explosion of action. Well, there is no chance of not showing any car stunts in Rohit Shetty’s film, from the helicopter to a motorboat all types of vehicles stunts are shown at their best in this film.
The story of the film is nothing new, it is just like any other anti-terrorism drama with a lot of humour and well-directed action. After revolving around the same Goa Police journey, director Rohit Shetty has cleverly expanded his cop universe, with this terrorism turnover. Apart from the story, the direction in the whole film is actually great. Each and every scene in the film is well presented on-screen. The film will take on a rollercoaster ride with a lot of giggles and emotions at some point. The humour added in the film is simply great. The dialogues will make you laugh out loud throughout even at serious times. Dialogue writers Farhad Samji, Sanchit Bendre, and Vidhi Ghodgadnkar have creatively penned each dialogue amidst matching their character lines.
When it comes to the performances, Akshay is seen in his normal action-packed avatar, completing it with a dash of his own fun. Katrina is not portrayed as a strong character in the film. Though her performance in Tip Tip Barsa Pani is too sensuous, her character should have pulled a little bit harder. Jackie Shroff, who played a villain in the film, was absent from the plot, although Gulshan Grover and Kumud Mishra were fantastic as villains. Even Niketan Dheer and Abhimanyu Singh did excellent jobs with their roles.
Important Point: The final 30 minutes are masterfully set up for Simbaa (Ranveer Singh) and Singham (Ajay Devgn); their farewell entry, in which Singham pledges his reappearance by continuing this same scenario, is well worth watching.
Overall, Akshay Kumar’s Sooryavanshi is extreme mass entertainment, but through critical point of view, it might have been crisped up a bit to improve the storyline.
