What happens next forms the rest of the movie.

Antim - The Final Truth

ANTIM – THE FINAL TRUTH is the official remake of the 2018 marathi movie MULSHI PATTERN [written and directed by Pravin Tarde]. The story of Pravin Tarde touches on some important issues such as the land mafia, the migration of the rural population and its exploitation in urban areas, etc. The script by Mahesh V Manjrekar, Abhijeet Deshpande and Siddarth Salvi is decent in the first half but unexciting in the second half. The characters and plot points are such that the movie could have reached great heights. Instead, the writers dot the narrative with bland scenes and blows after intermission. However, some scenes are exceptionally written. The dialogues of Mahesh V Manjrekar, Abhijeet Deshpande and Siddarth Salvi are sharp and commercial, without being over the top.

Mahesh V Manjrekar’s address is fine. The veteran director goes out of his way to make events exciting. It also gives a very realistic look and realistic setting to the movie. Some sequences are very striking, such as Rajveer and Rahul’s meetings at the police station and Rahul’s assault on Salvi. The middle point is dramatic. After the interval, two sequences stand out: one, when Manda (Mahima Makwana) admonishes Rahul in front of hundreds in the market, and two, when Rahul tells Datta to stay with him and the latter refuses. Except for these two sequences and the climax, the second half is unimaginative. Rajveer’s grand plan to start a war between the warring gangs is childish and comes across as the best plan ever devised by a character in a movie.

ANTIM – THE FINAL TRUTH wastes no time and the characters and their problems are presented from the beginning. Rajveer’s entrance is heroic. The first half is interesting and one expects the movie to turn out at a great rate in the second half, especially after the Rajveer and Rahul fight at the point of the interval. Unfortunately the movie goes downhill after the interval. The chase and the final fight is when the movie begins. But the movie ends on a very dark and depressing note. Also, the movie is very local in nature. Due to these two factors, the scope of the film may be limited.

Aayush Sharma: “An ADVICE that I received from Salman Khan and that I will follow my whole life is…” | Fast fire

Salman Khan is not in top form, but he does manage to make an impact in some scenes. Fortunately, he has an important role and is present in the film from beginning to end. Aayush Sharma has improved a lot since her debut film, LOVEYATRI [2018]. The actor has worked hard and it shows. In addition to a capable performance, his dialogue delivery is also commendable. Mahima Makwana makes a sure debut and is memorable in the scene where she criticizes Aayush. Sachin Khedekar is trustworthy. Upendra Limaye leaves a big mark on a small piece of paper. Uday Tikekar is decent, while Vijay Nikam is good at cameo. Mahesh Manjrekar plays a role similar to the one he played in DABANGG [2010]. His dialogues are difficult to understand. Jisshu Sengupta (Pitya) and Nikitin Dheer (Daya) are poor. Prem Dharmadhikari (Sidhu) gives a decent performance and has an important role. Rohit Haldikar is around for most of the movie, but she doesn’t have much to do. Sayaji Shinde (Uday) and Bharat Ganeshpure (Lawyer) lend their support. Sharad Ponkshe, Siddhi Dalvi and Chhaya Kadam (Rahul’s mother) don’t have much reach. Waluscha De Sousa looks beautiful in the song of the article.

Hitesh Modak’s music is forgettable. The only song that stands out is ‘Koi Toh Aayega’; plays in the background and improves impact. The rest of the songs ‘Bhai Ka’s Birthday’, ‘Hone Laga’, ‘Chingari’ and ‘Vignaharta’ they are disappointing. Ravi Basrur’s background music has the massive vibe.

Karan B Rawat’s cinematography is acceptable, but some top-angle drone shots on the market are spectacular. Vikram Dahiya’s action is not bloody and works well. ANL Arasu’s intro action scene is the best action piece in the film. The Prashant R Rane production design is realistic. Ashley Rebello and Alvira Khan Agnihotri’s costumes are royal but attractive. The Bunty Nagi edit is neat.

Overall, ANTIM – THE FINAL TRUTH has an entertaining first half and the showdown between Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma keeps the interest going. But the boring second half lessens the overall impact.
