'Sarfira' movie review

This film of director Sudha Kongara is the story of victory of the deprived section of the society. Surya's work in the original film was highly appreciated. Superhit films like 'Ghajini', 'Singham' and 'Force' have been made on Surya's films. The first part of this film of Sudha progresses in a great way, where the story keeps you engaged with many twists and turns. But in the second part, the pace of the story slows down a bit. However, then the climax of this film takes you on such a flight, where you cannot remain without getting emotional. The story moves forward on the lines of 'Those who try never lose'.

Sudha's film, while fulfilling the dreams of the underprivileged, also comments on patriarchal thinking, class division and casteism. The film has many layers, but the emotional and inspirational layer is the strongest. However, the flashback is a bit tangled. In this film inspired by Captain Gopinath's book 'Simply Fly', Sudha succeeds in showing the conspiracies of bureaucracy in an exciting way. Talking about music, GV Prakash Air Kumar could have made the music more powerful. The opening song also creates a stir in the story. Niket Bommireddy's cinematography creates excitement, while the background music maintains the pace of the story. The film could have been made a little more crisp on the editing table.

Akshay Kumar has won the hearts of the people in the role of Veer Mhatre. He is blooming and open in every way. His character has many layers and he has portrayed all the emotions like passion, passion, helplessness, hope-despair, romance on screen in such a powerful way. All this is so impressive that the audience gets immersed in the character and the story and wishes for his victory.

Radhika Madan has done a wonderful job in the role of Rani. She has won the hearts of the audience with her passionate character in Marathi accent. Her chemistry with Akshay is the plus point of the film. Paresh Rawal has played the negative role of the evil airline tycoon Paresh Goswami in his own style, while Seema Biswas has done a commendable job in the role of the mother. The acting of actors like Prakash Belwadi, Anil Mange, Anil Chatterjee, Iravati Harshe is also memorable.

Why watch- This movie can be watched by those who are fond of inspirational movies and for the powerful acting of Akshay Kumar.
