Aiyaari (2018) Story:
Aiyaari means smartness, Aiyaari means deceiving by changing appearances frequently. Major Jai Bakshi (Sidharth Malhotra) confronts with his senior Colonel Abhay Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) regarding arms and ammunition scam. There is a sub-plot of a corruption case, which tells about the building built for families of martyrs. The movie revolves around Jai Bakshi’s fight against people in the corrupt system.
The movie is excellent on the technical front. The cinematography is nice. Makeup and Costume Designing are amazing. The production Design is perfect.
The action scenes are decent. The music is ok. The background music is fast. Dialogues are witty and powerful.
Manoj Bajpayee has done an amazing performance. The entire movie is on his shoulders. He has shown his witty side in such scenes. He shines all of his scenes in the movie.
Sidharth Malhotra has done the decent job. But he looks confused in some places.
Rakul Preet Singh is brilliant. Pooja Chopra has not much scope in the movie, but she looks beautiful.
Naseeruddin Shah, Anupam Kher, Vikram Gokhale, Kumud Mishra, Adil Hussain, all actors are amazing in the movie.
Neeraj Pandey is known for his intelligent thriller movies like as A Wednesday, Special 26, Baby, etc. But he has disappointed us with Aiyaari.
Though the story is different, the script is weak. The director could represent the confrontation between Jai and Abhay in a simple narrative.
It seems Pandey was confused while narrating the story on the screen. The story and sub-plots have come in pieces. It is unnecessary to show everything at the same time. The movie drags back and forth through the narrative. Viewers bemuse as what’s going on over the screen.
The story becomes interesting in the first half. The eagerness of what will happen after the interval increases. However, this curiosity has curtailed in the second half. Hence, the story falls apart.
There is no logic as well as coordination in scenes. Characters look fake. We can’t connect with them emotionally. Naseeruddin’s character has not written well in the movie.
The other missing point of the movie is its longest run time. The movie becomes boring due to its lengthy presentation.
The director fails to build suspense well in the movie. The editing could have been tighter.
Is This Movie Worth to Watch?
No. You will get disappointed by the end of it.
