(Crisp) Movie Review: VISHWAROOP by FENIL SETA

Vishwaroop-wallpaper

VISHWAROOP is a slick film with an international feel. Kamal Haasan firmly carries the film on his shoulders. Rahul Bose jumps back into form and how! Jaideep Ahlawat as always is dependable. Pooja Kumar is an actress to watch out for! Andrea Jeremiah & Shekhar Kapur are okay in their supporting roles. Action and VFX is at par with global standards. The twist in the tale in the first half-an-hour is damn exhilarating and clapworthy. But soon after, film goes down at places and the length is the big culprit. Film could have been shorter by at least 30 minutes. Climax is novel but tension levels should have gone up significantly at this point which doesn’t happen. However, given the scale of the film, it’s worth a watch in theatres.

My rating-*** out of 5!

Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 2, 2013)

 

Recently our lensman caught a rugged-looking Imran Khan dressed in black sherwani toying with a pistol in a nondescript narrow alley near Pune’s MG Road. In a distance was a gell-haired Akhshay Kumar looking every bit a Mafioso, standing on a rooftop. Well, if you were wondering if the duo has changed their profession, then zoom out and a long shot will reveal a different picture —the two actors were shooting for Milan Lutharia’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again.
