Who isn’t aware of Tupac Shukar? Are you not? Then, it is time to turn over to his fictional biopic All Eyes on Me. Tupac Shukar had been a perplexing figure in the music industry. The biopic reflects the inner struggles and insights into the journey of the rapper. The world of music is way beyond the rhythms and compositions that we often associate it with and this film takes up the responsibility to uncover the hidden mysteries.

Plot

All Eyes on Me, under the directorial of Benny Boom, stars Demtrius Shipp Jr. in the main lead of Tupac. The movie is a build-up to the success and the guilt of missed occasions where moments would have been better. The film showcases some statistics underlining various record sales.

Analysis

Tupac died in September 1996, when he was just 25. While the mystery of his death continues, the film reflects on how his real life had been way different from his reel life. While conceptions and pre-conceptions shape his journey, there lay hidden a side of the story that the audience never came across. The film is a weak expression of his biography but it is a gentle reminder about the rapper’s unsolved and mysteriously dark existence. The film excludes the ‘bad boy’ projections of Tupac and offers a neat and clean portrayal. In the film, Tupac is shown being interrogated by a reporter who happens to bring up the question of his criminal offences. The movie is unpleasant in its depictions of the sexual abuse case Tupac was convicted for in 1994.

Star performance

The dialogues are flat, and the actors seem to struggle to pull off the intensity of Shakur on-screen. Only at definite points does Mr. Shipp impress us with the vividness of Tupac’s characterization. The film fails to accomplish Shakur’s substantial flair.

What’s there?

• Characterization of the characters is excellent.

• Detailed insights about the life of Tupac.

What’s not there?

• The film fails effective directorial.

• The cinematography could be better.

• The narrative becomes too vague after the climax

Verdict

For all the music lovers, this biopic is a fine way to peek into the struggles and hardships of artists, while at the same time present a reflection of how society may corrupt an individual leading to his/her fall into the dark pit of crimes and criminality.
