Sooryavanshi is a pure wholesome family entertainment film with all commercial elements for an action movie. Although the story is predictable with a slow screenplay, the actor’s screen presence carries it through.
Yes, the film starts with a good screenplay with the concept of sleeper cells but that doesn’t necessarily carry through the end. The climax, although entertaining, is probably the biggest disappointment of this. What many filmmakers don’t understand is that climax is not about the all-out action but rather about your main character being tested with the lesson he’s learned previously. Of course, a great action sequence is a bonus but it should not come at the cost of the character’s lesson. Akshay Kumar’s comedy timing definitely brings a little smile even for the serious ones, but as the film goes on the screenplay becomes a bit slow and predictable. Too many comedy scenes lead the story to lose its seriousness, especially in the climax. The humor is rather irritating than funny at times.
I expected more innovative scripting from this story as it starts well but is very unwittingly organized. The set of scenes are not properly integrated that’s why you may feel it is very ordinary and what we have already seen in other films. The induction of humor amidst the action seems a bit off track at times and the lengthy emotional scenes which are unwarranted make the story a bit of a drag in between.
Overall, we all know how it is. Very good action sequences and useless to count technical failures. Watch it with a huge chunk of salt. Have a good laugh. With some sad truth.
