Aakhari Decision Movie Review
ORE AST REW
- Anant Singh
Arjun ( Amar Sidhu), is a hitman, who roams around the city and kills people ruthlessly. He meets a girl, Mansee ( Sumona Chakravarti) and gradually becomes close to her, and simultaneously carries on his hitman job. Soon after, they both fall in love, and Mansee asks Arjun to leave this dark world of violence and rowdyism. Orion, a Greece settled Indian based gang leader wants to avenge the death of his son. He gives the task to the South Indian don, Victor, who gives the responsibility to Arjun. Arjun says that he wanted to leave this dark world and thus, refuses to take this task; but Victor somehow convinces Arjun to take up the task and explains how important it is to carry on this task. Once he reaches the commissioner to eliminate him, the commissioner says that he resembles his dead son. This strikingly conflicts Arjun. He thus withdraws from killing. This matter somehow reaches Orion, and he heads to India with his men. And Victor with the high pressure from Arjun tries to search for Arjun and the commissioner. So, do the duo track Arjun? And, do they find and execute the police commissioner? Watch the movie to find out.
The lead actor, Amar Sidhu, has not done a convincing job. There has been an emphasis on his worked out abs and rich colored eyes, but the acting is not up to the mark. Irrelevant expressions at certain scenes mislead the movie. The rest of the cast has done a relatively better job. Especially, Sumona Chakravarti, her body language alone, makes us fall in love with her.
The way the movie portrays Mumbai during the 80s to 90s is simply superb. Cinematography at its peak to show the slums and other Mumbai related things. Most of the actors are completely involved in the movie. They give their performance in such a way that it is expected. And of course, Sumona Chakravarti’s beauty and elegance mesmerize the audience.
This movie did receive mixed reviews. The way the narration is, it slightly confuses the audience. The jump between the time periods doesn’t sync properly. Although the majority of the characters did a decent job, yet the characterization is not up to the mark; like the psychological growth, the frustrations of the characters, etc. Established actor Anupam Kher is not being used to his potential. The loose editing during certain action scenes exposes certain errors committed during the shooting.
Although this movie might look like a great entertainer, it's not that worth a watch. But, if you are too bored with your work and don’t expect too much from it, this might be the one for you. This film, though, leaves us with some laughter and memories.
