This film is based on Kabaddi, which is known for pace, power and thrill but here all are lacking
12 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Director Mr. Shailesh Verma fails to return the lost glory of this game. He is so desperate to make this film extraordinary that he has stuffed it with unnecessary shots, jerky expressions and unwanted sub plots. He has written the film too, so he has to be blamed. Major drawback of this film is that you didn't get any excitement while watching the game on screen. This is mainly due to bad camera angles and wrong and repetitive taking. Points are being increased in game but you won't be able to get why? Film based on sports need special shot division to make the soul alive but here makers thought that only keeping the game in script will make it interesting. Even, writing wise you feel that Kabaddi is forcefully incorporated. They don't have to explore or justify this game much so they kept a love angle which becomes triangle at a point. Complete film is in bits and pieces. Make up is also bad. They think that ageing only makes hair grey but skin texture remains same. Clothes do not go well with the characters economical status. Most of the time they look very fresh as if they are being used first time. Production value is very low. They had budget to create a Mela but required gathering was missing. You can feel the scarcity of crowd even in stadium scenes. Climax is good but again it losses it charm due to length. I am giving one more point only due to climax. Scenes are sometimes undercooked sometime overcooked. Performance wise, Annu Kapoor is a fine actor and he did impressive work in his limited scope. Main lead Nishan as Vijay look endearing and never goes overboard. Surprisingly #NitinJadhav as Khaleefa, the short guy in team is very good. He did well in comedy scenes as well in emotional one. Rest cast are just OK. Music is OK. Title track is good and supports the film well by pacing it up.
