Will he save his resident from Raka? Will the good power win over the bad power? To know answers, you have to watch ‘A Flaying Jatt! ‘
Critic’s conclusion- Remo D’Souza has presented India’s first youngest superhero by this movie. Also, he has tried to give the message about saving the environment. But unfortunately, he fails in the presentation. The weak story and script are other loopholes in this movie.
The first half has light and entertaining moments. The second half goes to the dramatic way. It gets about over preachy about environment lessons and religious factors. Though it is the best way to spread the awareness about global warming and pollution, the movie is giving too much spoon-feeding about these topics. The entertainment quotient is missing here.
The climax is disappointed. CGI effects look fake and tacky. Such scenes have stolen from various Hollywood movies. The fantasy created around this superhero looks illogical. We can’t connect to this superhero. Kay Kay Menon misses in the second half. Raka Looks like a machine.
Talking about performances, Tiger Shroff is amazing in dance and action. But his inexpressive face fails to convey the emotional appeal in dramatic scenes. Nevertheless, he has managed to perform decently. Jacqueline Fernandez has nothing to do in the movie as she fills the glamour quotient in the movie. Amrita Singh has done an over the top performance. Kay Kay Menon is repetitive as a villain. Gaurav Pandey is impressive.
‘Beat Pe Booty’ and ‘Toota Jo Kabhi Tara’ are hummable songs. The camera work for these songs is fantastic. But the rest of the music is wasted. The cinematography is average. The production value looks tacky so does VFX. Dialogues are the letdown.
Overall, ‘A Flying Jatt ‘has no entertaining power. It doesn’t fly!
