If Red Dead Redemption 2 was to ever have a Bollywood version...
When the movie was announced, I was a little skeptical mainly because Bollywood always ruin movies with unnecessary songs and romance. But after seeing the trailer I got super excited.
I was very impressed with the movie and its pacing as well as how close it is to reality. The direction, acting, story, locations are on point.
Sushant Singh Rajput delivers his career best performance here. He was outstanding in every aspect and he seemed totally natural in his character. Manoj Bajpayee as usual nailed his role as the leader of the gang. He was able to portray the notoriety that the bandits of Chambal possess. Bhumi Pednekar was fantastic as the woman on the run. Ranvir Shorey was absolutely mind blowing as the second in command. The intensity he portrayed was perfect. His character was brilliantly written. Ashutosh Rana was an absolute treat to watch as the police captain trying to hunt down the gang.
The director has done his job very well. It clearly shows how much research he did before making this film since everything was so natural including the language spoken throughout the movie and how birds react to dead bodies. The story was very well paced and high on intensity. The scenery was bound to be good since the film was shot on location. The action sequences were very well choreographed and very enjoyable.
This movie kept me hooked from the start to the end. It has a very deep meaning that a lot of people will fail to understand. This is not the typical Bollywood film with songs and romance. This is a film based on true events and carries a deep meaning and message. The pacing was good and those who appreciate pure cinema will love it given the fact that it's very close to reality and perfectly portrayed the harshness that was present in Chambal back in those days.
Overall it's a wonderful movie and a pure cinematic experience. If Red Dead Redemption 2 was made in India, this is exactly how it would be. If you're someone who enjoys reality based action films, then I strongly recommend this one.
