Preposterous, Self Indulgent and a little Boring
There aren't many films where I think I may actually walk out but after the 20 minutes but I seriously thought about it. It did get a bit better thereafter though. Character development was poor. Did I care much for the characters...a little. A bit of effort is expended in trying to inject some emotion but mostly it falls very flat.
I saw this film in 3D. Why did I pay a premium for this ? In some of the hand to hand fight sequences you can barely see what's happening. The effect being akin to watching clothes going rounds and round in a washing machine. 3D technology appears to be very lacking for fast close action fighting sequences.
The story is weak with action/explosions being the main selling point of this movie.
If you go with very low expectations you may come away feeling it was an OK movie. Unfortunately for me I will lament those 2 hours of wasted time.
A film for the true patriot
Cricket is the backdrop for this film. It shows the obsession of the Indian public to watching India play cricket. However the true fight is going on thousands of miles away in a real war, which most of the characters are oblivious too.
The extent to which cricket fans go is gently ridiculed here where as very little worth is given to soldiers risking their lives for their country by those same people. Watching cricket is also shown as a running away from personal tragedies and not focusing on what is truly important in life.
Gaurav Pandey (the Director) has put together a great drama film here. Raveena (playing Reema Seth) puts on an excellent performance as wife of Major Raghav Seth who is sent away for war.
A moving & thought provoking film that all obsessive cricket fans should watch.
