Review of Sooryavanshi before watching the film !
Akshay Kumar-starrer Sooryavanshi, directed by Rohit Shetty, with cameos by Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh, and co-starring Katrina Kaif, was announced. But it was scheduled to hit theatres on March 24, 2020. Now, we all know how that godforsaken year went.
So Rohit Shetty expands his cop universe with Sooryavanshi, and in a Nick Fury-esque move, he assembles his Avengers - Bajirao Singham (Ajay Devgn) from Singham (2011) and Sangram Bhalerao (Ranveer Singh) in Simmba (2018), and introduces Veer Sooryavanshi (Akshay Kumar), all in Sooryavanshi. 10 years apart, talk about perseverance! Fans expected dhamaka, and dhamaka is what they got when the trailer dropped - many moons ago.
Now, to the acting. What do we say about Akshay-Ajay-Ranveer's acting, and most importantly, their comic timing? There's Akshay's trademark gum-revealing ear-to-ear grin that's so endearing, matched with Ranveer's cute mannerisms and more physical comedy, held together by Ajay's deadpan humour. Top all that with a generous dose of flying and somersaulting cars, and you have THE PERFECT DIWALI ENTERTAINER we needed to literally resuscitate theatres. What's not to love?
And now to Rohit Shetty's direction. Those armchair critics sitting on their high horses - go ahead, call it a high chair, it's not that I didn't think it - may call it all the superlative of bad, but Sooryavanshi will rake in the moolah, and then some more. Because Rohit Shetty stuck to what he promised - chatpata panipuri - and did not serve us a Coq au vin instead in peer pressure.
All I know is that I'm buying that large tub of popcorn, adding that extra dollop of butter, for I know, full paisa vasool ho hi jayega!
