Sooryavanshi Movie Review
This is a classic example of a director refusing to change the winning formula hence losing the essence of originality. Simmba was contrastingly different than Singham and hence it clicked beautifully well. Sooryavanshi is picking Akshay Kumar from Neeraj Pandey’s world and throwing him amid Rohit Shetty’s ‘car flying universe with lines worse than Housefull 4. He’s even robbed of a dedicated climax sequence with Singham stealing the limelight.
Everything about this one is an unsolved mess from cringe-filled preachy jingoistic scenes to Akshay’s annoying character-trait of forgetting names (which has already been hilariously nailed by Paresh Rawal in Awara Paagal Deewana).
Katrina Kaif in Tip Tip Barsaa Paani > Katrina Kaif in the entire film. She rarely adds any value to the story and looks like she has shot this simultaneously with Salman Khan’s Bharat. If you ask someone without any knowledge of Bollywood to watch Bharat, Sooryavanshi & show him/her a Katrina Kaif scene from any of the two movies, he/she won’t be able to tell from what film it’s.
None of the actors from the supporting cast i.e. Gulshan Grover, Jackie Shroff, Kumud Mishra, Jaaved Jaaferi, Sikandar Kher, Nikitin Dheer leave any memorable mark. Each one of them is either a miscast or lost.
