User Reviews

23 April 2013 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Dilip Ghosh's 'Commando' is Kick-Ass! Lead Star Vidyut Jamwal is one hell of an action-hero & he executes each & every stunt effortlessly. He single handedly makes this film work!

'Commando' Synopsis: A condemned Commando protects an innocent girl from a feared politician.

'Commando' is the same old story of the Good versus the Bad. Its been witnessed on the screen umpteen times, but what makes 'Commando' worth watching, is the Raw & Brutal Action it offers. The Action is amongst the best I've seen in a long, long time. The Screenplay clearly highlights Action. Dilip Ghosh's Direction is atmospheric, while the Cinematography captures the wildness accurately.

Performance-Wise: Jamwal steals 'Commando'. He's highly efficient in the Action-Scenes! Pooja Chopra looks sweet & delivers a very confident performance. Jaideep Ahlawat plays the twisted antagonist, most convincingly. Darshan Jariwala is adequate.

On the whole, 'Commando' shouldn't be missed by the Fanboys of Action-Orinted Cinema.
