‘Sarfira’ movie review

This film of director Sudha Kongara is the story of the victory of the underdog 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 half of this film of Sudha progresses in a wonderful way, where the story captivates you with many twists and turns. But in the second half, 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 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 confusing. 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 stronger. The opening song also creates a disturbance in the story. Niketh Bommireddy’s cinematography creates excitement, while the background music maintains the pace of the story. The film could have been made a little crisper on the editing table.

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

Radhika Madan has given a wonderful performance as Rani. She wins the hearts of the audience with her fiery character with a 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/her own unique 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 film can be watched by those who are fond of inspirational films and for the powerful acting of Akshay Kumar.
