Tiger Shroff is an Army general who come to Goa as his ex-girlfriend Disha Patani calls him for help to find her missing daughter. What happens in the progression of the hero’s search is the remaining story.
Adivi Sesh’s script is the actual hero, his writing stands tall with series of solid twist and turns with an emotional connect too. Tiger Shroff’s physique is like a superb beast; hence he passes the action sequences with flying colors. Disha Patani is cute and looks innocent. Randeep Hooda’s character is quirky and his performance is also exciting. Screenplay is not bad, scenes placed from the original version are decent. Songs are pretty good, gives a light pleasant feel. Background music is fine and gel well with the scenes. Editing is quite impressive as many complicated shots have been cut with care. Visual effects are neatly made, especially the mega climax sequence. Interval point is high and certain surprise elements are revealed nicely.
Tiger Shroff’s performance is weak despite of having the scope to emote. Disha Patani falls short of being expressive, hence her acting doesn’t glitter. Manoj Bajpayee is a mis-cast and so his role fails to provide the impact. Also, the wrong choice of actors for other supporting roles results badly. Direction is not up to the mark, even a solid scene with an efficient situation goes wrong. Screenplay has too many unwanted commercial deviations which are contradictory to the plot. Song placements are poor, also there are plenty of them to disturb the flow. Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran’s camera work is average, even though the angles are decent, aerial shots are blur. There are countless number of action sequences which are out of the logic box. Hero worshipping is done by using stunt choreography, the fight sequences are over-the-top. Producer is taken for granted as money is spent needlessly, especially for the unnecessarily grand action-packed climax. Going way mindless, the realistic plot dilutes easily.
TO CONCLUDE – A mindless masala action ride which has a good script but falls in execution.
Movie Rating – 2.25/ 5.
