After Bang Bang!, he said he isn’t interested in a remake. Then he took more than two and a half years to appear in a film. As a fan, I almost gave up until I saw the poster of Super 30.
Hrithik Roshan has beaten all odds and mastered himself in dance and acting since the last two decades. He occasionally sings as well. And he did his homework on the local Uttar Pradesh accent before this film. But I don’t know whether it is his luck or his personal life which is really affecting him because he is yet to choose a game-changing script.
The topic chosen in this film is interesting and one cannot complain about the lead and supporting actors because including Roshan, the newbies and the veterans, Mrunal Thakur, Virendra Saxena, Pankaj Tripathi, Aditya Shrivastava, Nandish Singh and Vijay Varma (and Amit Sadh with a cameo) have given their best, BUT, the flick is so stretched that a moviegoer will feel agitated at some point. The script (Sanjeev Dutta) could have been sharpened a little more.
Look, it is set to give a good inspiration. It is based on a real person with the same name as the lead character’s and his life-changing mission. There are good moments in the film too. Some of the scenes are even hitting the right chord of emotion by providing a reality check.
At the same time, the graph of this film isn’t constant or continuously rocketing, it is going like a heartbeat. Wavering. I am guessing Vikas Bahl‘s (director) stars were in the right position only at the time of Queen (2014). Even the music (Ajay–Atul) is okay. The track Basanti No Dance is composed, choreographed and performed well. It was also great to hear Udit Narayan again, in a proper song (Jugraafiya) and not a remodel.
This motion picture made me realise how and why a poor person takes time to respond to a person superior in terms of caste, cash, creed or color, if confronted. It’s sad. Super 30 is shown to the world from the poor person’s perception. Slowly.
