A FLYING JATT Is Messed Up Due To Its Preachy Tone
Jacqueline is decent, Tiger Shroff is outstanding, Amrita Singh is lovable
confused screenplay, inconsistent direction, poor music, pathetic vfx
Watch it for Tiger Shroff
Remo D souza has given hit 'ABCD' series and now he is back with superhero film.
Plot is super confused. Mr. Malhotra (Kay Kay Menon) is a big time industrialist who has been dumping his industrial waste into a local lake. He is a relentless businessman and hence is after a crucial piece of land where a holy tree (Avatar like) stands with a society owned by Amrita Singh’s character and her sons Aman (Tiger Shroff) and Rohit (Gaurav Pandey).After Aman’s mother stands tall against Malhotra’s men to save her land, he appoints Raka (Nathan Jones) to kill Aman and his family.Thus, results a fight in the rains, clubbed with thunder, lightening and support from the Holy tree and bam! There is our superhero.
Aman turns a superhero overnight while Raka after lying in toxic waste for over 10 days becomes a Toxic superhero should we say? Well, as a baddie of course.With Flying Jatt becoming a popular messiah, Malhotra’s business is dooming and hence Raka with his newly attained powers come to the rescue.Will Raka defeat Aman’s goofy superhero avatar of Flying Jatt?
Film has decent plot but screenplay gets boring at times especially in 2nd half. Songs are flat and proceedings look too cliche. Film takes too preachy route and it take the fun out of a superhero film.
Performance wise, Tiger Shroff is outstanding. Jacqueline looks good and Amrita Singh is lovable. Nathan Jones does his job well and Kay Kay Menon again sleepwalks in a role he has done several times in past.
Film has crisp editing. Background music is loud. Cinematography is decent, production design is authentic and costumes are apt. Music is bore.
Director Remo falters this time as he tries to put too much soul in an entertainer mad cap genre. This might work intitially over weekend but it is his weakest film.
Film released today and will open good but will find difficult after weekend.
Go for this only if you are Tiger Shroff fan!
