Rohit Shetty has subtly expanded his police world for the last few years, keeping the viewers engaged and die-hard followers of the genre on edge. After the Singham series (featuring Ajay Devgn) and Simba (featuring Ranveer Singh), Sooryavanshi (featuring Akshay Kumar) arrives amid great hype, drama, and noisy theatrics. Sooryavanshi’s backstory was revealed quietly at the end of Simmba. The movie includes all of the components, attitude, flair, performance, and heavy-duty star power that one would expect from a Rohit Shetty production.
This cop action plotline, like Simmba, is narrated by Ajay Devgn. He keeps reminding us of the various terrorist incidents that Mumbai has faced, from the 1993 bomb attacks to the 2008 terrorist incident on many landmark locations in Mumbai, including Taj Mahal Palace and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT). The main plot unfolds as the city prepares for the most extensive operation yet. Some Lashkar sleeper cells have been triggered, and 600 kg of Explosives leftover from the 1993 serial bombings are being used for the attack.
DCP Veer Sooryavanshi arrives with a vital objective and a lot of garam khoon to safeguard the city from another major terrorist attack. He is so dedicated to his work that his family, wife Riya (Katrina Kaif), and son Aryan, take second place in his great duty.
The movie’s cross-border narrative focuses on the theme of vengeance, ‘An eye for an eye makes the world blind’, whereas the plot is safe (simple and easy to predict), the violence is daring and thrilling. The chasing scene on the streets of Bangkok among Veer and John (Sikander Kher) is a feast for the eyes. Don’t mind that it appears to be influenced by the bike scene with the Keymaker in The Matrix Reloaded, as Ajay Devgn’s action scene in Singham Returns was influenced by Tom Cruise’s in Mission: Impossible 3.
Akshay Kumar gives an outstanding performance. Through his entrance to the never-ending gunfire, he validates his supercop persona. Apart from the high-adrenaline physical fights, there are several high-drama pursuits involving cars, motorcycles, and choppers, in which Akshay Kumar demonstrates his unrivalled action talents. Ultimately, it’s an Akshay Kumar movie with star power and acting talent from start to finish. Katrina Kaif appears gorgeous on film, and her sensual dance to the legendary song ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’ is undeniably clap-worthy, and yet you can’t help thinking of Raveena Tandon, the real ‘Mast Mast’ lady of Bollywood.
Ajay Devgn and Ranvir Singh’s thunderous appearance in the second half lifts the movie and provides a powerful punch. The three performers dominate the show in the few scenes they share. The fantastic cast, which features Jackie Shroff as terrorist gang leader Omar Afeez, and fellow gang members Gulshan Grover, Abhimanyu Singh, Kumud Mishra, and Nikitin Dheer, contributes significantly to the plot’s growth. Jaaved Jaaferi’s representation of ATS head Kabir Shroff, on the other hand, portrays his serious cop role flawlessly.
Although Sooryavansi’s background music establishes the tone, the songs aren’t very remarkable. The newly remastered version of ‘Najaa’ is a fantastic song; however, it is not featured in the film. The three dancing to Daler Mehndi’s ‘Aila Re Aillaa’ is, nonetheless, fascinating. Veer Sooryavanshi, Akshay Kumar has skillfully played the role of his predecessors Singham and Simmba. With a good amount of jumping and somersaulting automobiles, this one was a great Diwali delight, and if you like high-action films, you should see this!
