Extremely Disappointing

3/10

I am a fan of Dilip but, casting him for this movie was a mistake.This role should have gone to one of the younger upcoming actors. Dilip is supposed to be a track and field athlete representing a college. Two inherent problems with that, one he is 39 year old and looks every bit his age. Second, physically he is not fit enough to pull it off. Enough said about that. Let's come to the climax where the director Jayasuriya totally loses control over reality. It's a men's relay competition where the hero and villain are participating on the same team. The villain tried his best to keep Dilip from participating in the event but manages to just injure his leg. The race begins everything is fine till the baton reaches the villain who is seething with rage and envy, so in order to sabotage Dilip's chances of winning the team event he runs like he is in quicksand. Dilip's team is trailing last now. Finally after much exaggeration the baton reaches Dilip who is running the last leg. Dilip takes off with speed that makes Superman look like a snail. He is overtaking one competitor after another. I guess it becomes easy when everybody else is running in slow motion literally. He wins the race with more than a comfortable margin. The college students beat up the villain. Wait a minute! Doesn't the director know the easiest way to sabotage a relay race is to drop the baton, end of story. It's not all that unlikely either. At the Beijing Olympics, the U.S. men's and women's relay team simultaneously dropped their batons and were disqualified. Mr. Jayasuriya needs to first increase his general knowledge before venturing out to make another movie. Please spare us your stupidity.
