Yodha Review: Insufferable Scrappy Thriller

Saddled with a wayward screenplay that fires a string of blanks, Yodha fights a losing battle.

The titular hero, a de-rostered soldier from a disbanded task force, embarks on a mission of vengeance and redemption aboard a commercial aeroplane to nowhere. However, amidst the pandemonium unleashed by wobbly planes and failing hydraulics, the screenplay by co-director Sagar Ambre lets on a bewildering blur, leaving viewers struggling to discern the plot.

Pulpy Action with Incoherent Plot

Early scenes, such as the protagonist emerging from a river with a smoke bomb emitting the national flag’s colors, set the tone for the film’s pulpy action. However, as the narrative unfolds, it becomes evident that logic and common sense are sacrificed at the altar of spectacle. From commandeering passenger planes to accessing cargo holds at will, the film’s portrayal of aviation and terrorism defies credibility.

Personal Vendettas and Patriotism

At its core, Yodha aims to showcase the exploits of Arun Katyal (Sidharth Malhotra), a highly trained soldier wronged by the system. However, the film’s attempts to establish his character and motivations fall flat amidst convoluted subplots and nonsensical action sequences. Despite a stellar cast, including Raashii Khanna and Disha Patani, the film fails to elevate its muddled narrative.

Verdict: A Bumpy Ride to Nowhere

In conclusion, Yodha promises an adrenaline-fueled ride but delivers a disjointed mess. While Sidharth Malhotra tries to salvage the chaos with his action sequences, the film’s flawed screenplay and lack of coherence make it a forgettable experience for viewers. Directed by Sagar Ambre and Pushkar Ojha, Yodha falls short of its potential as a gripping thriller.
