Analyzing the early reviews
Following are our preliminary observations about the success rate of the movie based on the reviews of early movie watchers. Continue reading more to know about both positive as well as not-so-good-looking aspects of the film.
The movie has as its cast a few of the most brilliant actors this country has ever seen. It has Shah Rukh Khan, Vijay Sethupati, and Nayanthara (to name a few) acted in major roles in the movie. These actors bring their unique acting persona and fan base to add to the cumulative charm that this film ensues.
- The movie is exclusively made to celebrate Indian taste. Of late there have not been many movies, that have delivered performances that the masala lovers of our country will like. Jawan however comes to the rescue. This is so because this movie has been made exclusively for enjoying the big screen experience and has plenty of whistle-worthy moments all throughout. This movie can make the audience go crazy. Starting from the sizzling dance moves to the enticing and thrilling action sequences, this movie covers it all.
- At the outset, it goes without saying that King Khan has again delivered a spectacular performance on the big screen. His amazing acting skills and funny scenes have made the movie an amazing hit already among many viewers. This movie also promises some amazing action scenes.
- Vijay looks lovely in his role as the weapon dealer. He enjoys every bit of his role and consequently delivers a breathtaking performance. His dialogue delivery, mannerisms, and acting skills are a treat to the eyes. His confrontation scenes and bitter battle with King Khan acted out well and in favor of the overall entertainment of the movie.
- Nayanthara has great chemistry with the camera and delivers a terrific performance. The tale is advanced by a cameo appearance by Deepika Padukone, which was very well done. The finest thing is that Atlee did not skimp on the climactic sequences and yet managed to deliver emotionally in the first half. In the first hour, we got just the appropriate amount of both action and emotion.
The film contains an important social message, however, it is not conveyed very well. The first half’s emotional impact was strong, and the Deepika-centric passages in the second half were also wonderfully realized. Despite its impressive heights and breathtaking action sequences, the film’s intended profound message is not communicated adequately. The editing in the second part could have used some work.
The film’s plot isn’t very original, therefore there are points when it becomes predictable. Some purposefully exaggerated moments were used to please the largest possible audience. Some were quite outstanding, while others fell back on tired tropes. The music video for “Faraatta,” which featured Shah Rukh and Deepika, looked terrible. Like other blockbuster films, this one requires you to suspend your disbelief and enjoy the ride.
