Pathaan movie review

Hollywood-class action with a Bollywood twist

Of course, those who often watch Bollywood action movies will enjoy this movie, especially since the stars’ action sequences are considered high-risk and very intense from start to finish. However, for those who have never or only occasionally watched Indian action movies, of course, this movie will be too melodramatic and far-fetched.

All these opinions are valid, and that is how Bollywood movies with all their characteristics, where exciting action scenes are full of slow motion and interspersed with singing or dance. So, for newbies, don’t be surprised, just enjoy the movie until it’s over.

Movie pathaan

As for the action scenes, it can be said that this movie will not let the audience relax even a little. The tension of the movie is kept absolutely above average, except when the dance starts, but even then it’s not very long, only about 5 minutes and the action will resume.

The action sequences themselves make us think of a combination of the James Bond series and Mission Impossible appearing in many scenes, and of course it is very interesting and has attractive cinematography because the film was shot in some European countries such as Spain, Russia, Italy, France and some Asian countries such as Afghanistan, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates.

The weakness itself is not too dominant, besides the action scenes are sometimes a bit melodramatic, there are some scenes that are inconsistent or out of focus and feel very shaky compared to others.

The surprising cameo came after the first time

This is what many viewers have been waiting for. After YRF released Spy Universe, the long-awaited actor finally appeared in the second half of ‘Pathaan’. Well, who else but Salman Khan, who succeeded as Agent Tiger in the Tiger series.

Review pathaan

His appearance to save Pathaan on a bullet train is sure to shock those who have seen the movie from the start. Salman Khan’s success in building the image of Agent Tiger with Katrina Kaif is much appreciated, and these two top Bollywood actors, who happen to both have the surname Khan, have plenty of warrior fans all over the world. world.

Shah Rukh Khan’s dominance in the landscape

This factor can be called the weak point of Bollywood action movies. Although both are great actors, the popularity and seniority factor is sometimes put on top, so John Abraham’s screen time is a bit unbalanced compared to Shah Rukh Khan and makes this movie lose. go the fun.

Even Deepika Padukone, who doesn’t have much screen time, can capture our attention momentarily with her presence. If only the two were given a balanced story, this movie would certainly have more intense counter-action throughout the scenes rather than just waiting behind the scenes and just face-to-face after the close. climax.

The story is predictable from the start

Although the scriptwriter missed a twist in the middle of the film, this movie is still predictable and the story itself is not as interesting as ‘War’, which was both directed by Siddharth Anand in 2019 and features two characters. main. actors, Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff. The background plot that Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone are trying to build is also very weak, and just a mere patchwork.

Conclusion of the movie Pathaan

For those of us who are satisfied with the action genre and admire Shah Rukh Khan, this is a must-see movie. ‘Pathaan’ comes with a bunch of high-tech action from start to finish that will make us unable to leave this movie just like that. The weak point, although very small, has some quite ominous points, such as uneven footage and vibration in some scenes, the output point of the movie is too large, so the effect makes the speakers in the theater seem to be about to break, as well as a The background story is weak and predictable. Those who are curious to see the movie can watch it right away, this movie is available at XXI, CGV and Cinepolis cinemas.
