Rating: 4/5 Stars
After Blockbuster Pathaan, Shah Rukh Khan is back again with mass entertainer ‘Jawan’, to entertain his fans and audience. The film is directed by Atlee, who is also known for Tamil hits Theri, Mersal and Bigil.
Plot: The film is about Vikram Rathore (Shah Rukh Khan), an Indian soldier who chooses an unconventional way to do good to society. He hijacks a metro train and holds the passengers as the hostages. Vikram puts forth his demands to NSG officer Narmada (Nayanthara). She learns that weapon dealer and renowned businessman Kaalie Gaikwad (Vijay Sethupathi) is the target of Vikram Rathore. What is the connection between the soldier and Kaalie? How integral is Vikram Rathore’s son Azad (Shah Rukh Khan) to the whole story? The movie is about this.
Performance: A never seen-before avatar of Shah Rukh Khan, from swag to action, he proves age is just a number. Vijay Sethupathi is the perfect antagonist, looked menacing with his towering personality. Nayanthara looks gorgeous in every fame and done a fabulous job. Supporting cast, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Ridhi Dogra, Lehar Khan, Girija Oak and Sunil Grover are good in their respective roles. Don’t miss Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Dutt cameo scene which is also the highlight of Jawan.
Direction & Music: Atlee Kumar is almost good, mixture of commercial and social message together. Background music has been given by Anirudh Ravichander and as-usually good. One of the songs (Banda Zinda Hoon) is tremendous and others are quite average.
Final Words: Overall, Jawan is the perfect commercial entertainer for Shah Rukh Khan’s fans and audience. The film is not a waste of time or money. Go for it!
