Sit back and enjoy ‘Sooryavanshi’

Published: 6th Nov 2021 5:26 pm

This is a full blast season’s dhamaka from Rohit Shetty. Surely, it cannot get better than this or larger. Straight from his stable, you know exactly what to expect. This time round, the police are in search of two dreaded terrorists: Bilal (Kumud Misra) and Umar (Jackie Shroff). The local police chief Kabir Shroff (Javed Jaffrey) couldn’t manage to apprehend them in an earlier operation. Now, deputed to do the job is Sooryavanshi (Akshay Kumar).

Nothing in the story really matters. In this action by the minute, it matters little as to who is what and why are they doing whatever they are doing. It is a thriller with all the political masala one associates with political drama. Add to it the signature punch that one has come to associate with Rohit, and you have a perfect Diwali product. Yeah, it brooks no logic and it pretends none.

A tad too long but that is also what the action-starved audience is looking for. It has been a near two-year wait for the audience. All the money bags and the moguls are at it and so the audience has enough and more to look forward to.

Relationships are quickly established; the characters are drawn into the good and the bad. The prototype baddies are terrorists and equated (for convenience!) with the neighbouring country. Sooryavanshi also has cracks in the family with wife Aditi (Katrina Kaif) who is walking out of the marriage since she finds the life of their child under threat due to the bravado of the police officer. Just as the chase for the culprits gains momentum, the clash between the terrorists and the police in the backdrop of the blasts reaches the climax.

Now, enter two more action actors from our cinema – Inspector Sangram “Simba” (Ranveer) and DCP Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn). The trio is a blast. There is also neat humour with Sooryavanshi forgetting names and thus Ria becomes Hernia, Thambe becomes Bombay and a series of similar ones. Interestingly, every highlighted thrill scene is interpolated with one-liners and fun.

It is as much a Rohit Shetty film as it is an Akshay Kumar film. Notwithstanding some politics thrown in, he is ideal for the thriller and the action-packed script offers him everything that he revels in. He does not disappoint. Be it hanging from the helicopter or making faces, he is in his elements.

Katrina Kaif has sure come a long way and she sure holds her own in the action film though the script offers her just nothing. Ajay Devgn and Ranveer add to the drama in the later part of the film one over the top and the other poker-faced form ideal foil to the action hero Akshay.

The audience is going to love this feast. Goodbye common sense. Sit back and enjoy the thriller. Rang chada hai rang chade ga, Band baja hai…
