Ganapath Movie Review: Tiger Shroff and Kriti Sanon’s thrilling action movie has finally released and fans are very excited to witness the futuristic movie with high-octane actions. The movie features Tiger Shroff, Kriti Sanon in the lead role and Amitabh Bachchan plays a vital role in the movie. Let’s know about what works in the movie and what’s not.
A powerful criminal organisation rules the world in an uncertain future. The Silver City tyrants enslave the populace, and humanity is on the point of destruction, but a few bravehearts are preparing for war. These warriors are fighting for equality and justice under the leadership of Ganapath. But where has Ganapath gone? Is he aware of his genuine calling? Will he come to represent hope?
Guddu (Tiger Shroff), a careless, egotistical character with Casanova-esque charm, works for John The Englishman (Ziad Bakri). John is determined to recoup the losses of his syndicate boss, the enigmatic Dalini, and enlists Guddu’s assistance. He had no idea that Guddu was born to lead a revolution, and the plot revolves around his journey from Guddu to Ganapath.
Tiger Shroff dazzled with his fluid motion and dance. However, his line delivery appears to have been lifted directly from Munna Michael’s sets to complete this film. Tapori language and attitude exude a ‘been-there-done-that’ vibe. Fortunately, his character has an interesting arc in the second half, and Tiger performs admirably. When Tiger faltered in the first half, Kriti Sanon kept the audience’s interest. Kriti is a badass as Jassi, a lone warrior. The National Award winner is convincing in action situations and outstanding in dramatic scenes. Despite her character’s lack of depth, Kriti manages to make an impression.
Aside from Tiger and Kriti, Rashin Rahman, who plays the physically handicapped rebel, Shiva, also shines. His character has depth, and you will identify with him. The first half of the film was mediocre. However, the second half will keep you invested until the fancy effects kill the story.
What’s not good?
Ganapath is brought down by its amateurish, poorly rendered, visibly jarring VFX. Leave Hollywood aside, the animation and effects in PC games of 2005 looked better than Ganapath. The special effects of this film should be awarded as the Worst VFX of recent times. Also, the movie had little-to-no scope for senior talented actors such as Amitabh Bachchan, Jameel Khan, and Pramod Kadam. They all were wasted.
Bad VFX can be ignored but predictable storyline, and lame execution killed a movie that has the potential to be the next blockbuster.
