What is it about

Sooryavanshi explained himself quite a bit in his trailer, where his main eponymous ATS cop (Akshay Kumar) has to stop a series of bomb blasts by terrorist sleeper cells, which will replace anything done in the serial explosions of ’93. or 11/26. attack. It is in how and where this plays out that Rohit Shetty shows her genius in Sooryavanshi.

Check out the trailer for Sooryavanshi below:

What heat

Sooryavanshi is a Paisa vasool journey back to the larger-than-life cinema, propelled by the stars on the big screen. The film opens with a bang, director Rohit Shetty sets things up in signature style with a fast-paced action sequence for lead Akshay Kumar. And boy, has Akshay been introduced as the superstar that he is, but hasn’t he shown himself since God knows when? Plus, it’s a treat to finally see the Khiladi of yesteryear in action, performing high-intensity martial arts sequences and graceful kicks, just as his fans loved to see him do in his youth. Also, the backstory that Rohit Shetty sets is very interesting even though we know the actual incidents. Plus, his attention to minor details is as spot on as ever (even for something as small as who a doctor can operate on or not, or something as big as correcting every aspect of terrorist sleeper cells) – this man is truly a Director with artistic sensibilities disguised as a masala filmmaker.

Even the way he sets the romantic track between Akki and Katrina Kaif seamlessly fits the story, plus we’re clearly reminded why Akshay and Katrina are such a beautiful on-screen couple when they set the screen on fire. Even Jaaved Jaaferi and Jackie Shroff get their best roles in years. Heck, even those in small parts like Gulshan Grover and Asif Basra are chosen for precise reasons. Single-screen audiences will also love the subtle added comedy snippets, none of which distract from the main plot. And those who are concerned that Sooryavanshi is being too roasted with jingosim can rest assured, all dialogue is recorded with careful thought, even the ones that are meant to evoke applause and whistles. So far this is a really very well done masala movie, leaked in a topical and relevant issue, wrapped in a carefully constructed cross-border plot.

As for Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh’s big entries, they are more than up to their long-awaited cameos, easily on par with everything Marvel has offered in their Avengers universe. And his climax alongside Akshay Kumar is a beauty, by far one of the best choreographed action sequences in the history of Indian cinema. However, for me, three scenes stood out the most in Sooryavanshi, when Akshay presents a dialogue of leaving the past behind (imperative in today’s powder magazine environment in the country), when Ranveer gives a monologue praising the citizens of Pakistan, but criticizing his condition. funded terrorism, and a wonderfully nostalgic moment in which Muslim and Hindu priests come together to protect an idol, creating an iconic framework. Technically, it’s a very solid movie too, with the editing, camera work, visual effects, background scoring, and overall production values ​​all put together nicely.

What not

Barring the introductory opening action sequence by Akshay Kumar, the first half is absent if there are more high-octane moments, which is a bit of a disappointment from a Rohit Shetty movie, especially one that belongs to the same franchise as Singham and Us. . Also, some inconsistencies in the plot are glaring loopholes, which would have become prominent if not for the climax. And in her love for the police, Rohit Shetty falters once again glorifying police brutality or even how the police treat relatives of accused terrorists.

BL verdict

Putting aside some flaws, which you will gladly overlook in the end, Sooryavanshi evokes the feeling of ‘Mazaa Aala Re Aala’. This is exactly why you are going to see great Bollywood movies on the big screen. Rohith Shetty brings back “our” Hindi cinema with a bang. This will be the first of my many visits to the movies, and I suppose many of yours will too. I go with 4 out of 5 stars.
