Precisely made for mass audiences, Kartik Aryan starrer & remake of Telugu film, Shehzada deserves one watch for its amazing star cast & starry performances.
After the huge success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa’s massive success Kartik Aryan is back on big screens with his another Comedy action & family drama, Shehzada. It’s a remake of Allu Arjun’s Telegu film Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. Though film lovers are okay with the movie but they are against the remake of the films.
Shehzada is the star-studded film, with Kartik Aryan (Bantu) & Kriti Sanon (Samara) in the lead roles, though Kriti doesn’t really fits into the plot of the story but she’s always in the frame to fulfil the need of romantic flavours in throughout the timeline of the film. Paresh Rawal (Vamiki)& Ronit Roy (Randeep Nanda) on the other hand have played their characters potentially with the likes of Sachin Khedekar (Aditya Jindal) in an important role.
It starts when Valmiki, loyal servant and old friend of Randeep Nanda & his father-in-law Aditya Jindal exchanges his baby with Randeep’s baby. Valmiki does it to not give his own child the life of a middleclass person and he wants to see his child happy & Randeep’s child in misery. After a leap of 25 years when Bantu, the real son of Randeep Nanda & grand-son of Jindal family lives very normal middleclass life at Valmiki’s place.
But his destiny takes him to his real home & real family where things are not going in swing. Bantu solves all the problems in the family & how is the real watch in the whole film. First half of the movie tracks slow pace to make us digest the whole unreal plot while second half covers a lot of it and saves the film from getting rash reactions from the viewers.
Without acting part, the movie would have definitely collapse with its massy elements. It’s like if you take out Kartik Aryan, Paresh Rawal or Sachin Khedekar from the frame there’s nothing remains to watch. Still on the other hand makers haven’t really thought of their characters as many of them seems incomplete and uncertain.
Kriti Sanon’s character Samara enters in the story very dashingly with her boss lady personality but looses all her charm till the end scenes. While Ronit Roy gives very grey vibrations without playing any grey shade character in this one. Bantu’s sister & Valmiki’s daughter is shown only in the first 15 minutes of the film and it feels like she has been added just to show Bantu’s entry and how he saves her from goons and then she’s lost in the whole film.
The film has many loopholes in it but the star casts and massy filter have covered it so well that Hindi film audience might like it. looking at the range of films Rohit Dhawan has directed this could have been a little better.
