Sooryavanshi film review: Akshay Kumar’s Veer Sooryavanshi is a worthy addition to Rohit Shetty’s cop universe.
Lastly releasing after 19 months, Sooryavanshi is nothing short of a celebration of mainstream Hindi cinema, bringing back whistles and cheers to a theatre after a very long time. Sooryavanshi is fuelled by director Rohit Shetty’s trademark action and Akshay Kumar brings it in abundance.
Sooryavanshi just isn’t a three-hero movie because the posters and trailers may attempt to make you imagine. It is an out-and-out Akshay Kumar action movie with particular appearances from Ajay Devgn, who performs Singham, and Ranveer Singh, who plays Simmba, within the final half-hour. These 30 minutes are the movie’s spotlight with its high-octane action, cars getting blown up, some beautiful hand fight choreography has taken to a brand new stage, and the action-hero trio of their finest type.
Sooryavanshi begins after the 1993 bomb blasts in Mumbai. 13 years later, when a terrorist group is again in action and planning one other mission, DCP Veer Sooryavanshi, (Akshay Kumar), the top of the Mumbai Anti-Terrorism Squad, is assigned the duty of finding their whereabouts and cease the assaults.
With hardcore masala movies, it is simple to imagine that you can depart your mind at dwelling and simply benefit from the expertise. But with a movie like Sooryavanshi, which introduces countless characters on the display screen, one after the opposite, you must be your alert self and be a part of.
That being mentioned, Sooryavanshi is not pushed by an ideal script neither does it have any extraordinary suspense that would deliver nail-biting moments. But, it retains you on the sting for the sheer pleasure of watching that over-the-top action. Shetty picks various components — the romance between Sooryavanshi and his spouse Riya (played by Katrina Kaif), their relationship with their son Aryan, his camaraderie with the members of his ATS power — and weaves them collectively for a satisfying climax.
Amid all this, recreating Tip Tip Barsa Pani may have been simply avoided. Fairly frankly, I couldn’t watch it past a few seconds. Or perhaps we will not imagine anybody aside from Raveena Tandon in that yellow saree. Katrina tried a bit too onerous but it did not fairly work. As for Akshay, he clearly seemed higher with Raveena and maybe, ought to have simply mentioned no to this remake.
And once again, Rohit Shetty takes the chance to announce yet another outing. But as of now, go watch Sooryavanshi makes your Diwali much more special.
