Gabbar Is Back Movie Review- Story/Plot
Akshay Kumar’s “Gabbar is Back” hit the theaters today and the movie is more or less the same like his previous releases including Special 26 or Holiday or Baby where the Khiladi Kumar is using the concept of vigilante justice as the bait, and he’s beating competition to pulp at their own game.
Akshay Kumar essays the role of Aditya, who is an extremely righteous professor who dreams of creating awareness among the youth and making them ‘doers’ instead of being ‘watchers’ to the rotten system of corruption.
Aditya and his team of students in their mission to correct the corrupt system get placed in various government organizations. He kidnaps the Top most corrupt officials in the government organisations including the Tehsildars, Collectors, PWD official and even a police official and calls himself the “Gabbar”.
Well, Aditya has a past that is the reason behind his mission. Apparently. five years back Aditya was happily married to his wife Kareena Kapoor who dies an unexpected mishap of a building collapse. Aditya loses his pregnant wife. He later finds out that Digvijay Patil (Suman Talwar), who is the builder is responsible for this mishap.
Divijay tries to kill Aditya but a group of medical students save his life post which Aditya vows to teach a lesson not only to Digvijay but all the corrupt officials in the system.
Shruti Hassan plays a lawyer in the movie while Sunil Grover is an honest constable who is always a butt of jokes amongst his seniors.Later, Kuldeep Pahwa (Jaideep Ahlawat) comes as the special officer who finally recognizes Sadhu for his work.
The film’s screenplay has flaws but its pace covers up for most of the glitches. Gabbar Is Back grabs teh attention of thefrom the very first sequence where simultaneous kidnappings leave Maharashtra disturbed.
Gabbar is Back is a remake of 2002 Tamil film “Ramanaa” but unlike its Tamil version this one doesn’t take many shots in introducing the love angle between Akshay Kumar and Shruti Haasan. They sing, dance and get done with the basics of the heroine’s work in this film. Gabbar Is Back strictly becomes a one-man show, and that man rises up to the occasion. And then who cares if a lawyer is helping in a child’s delivery inside a car or a mere businessman is able to wreak havoc in the city.
His hand-to-hand combat will remind you of his earlier Khiladi days where he used to bulldoze a barricade of 20 guys with just one kick. And, where these things don’t work, his lethal comic timing comes to aide.
Gabbar is Back is deliberate attempt to present Akshay Kumar as the combination of Bhagat Singh and a modern day leader is visible from the very first scene. But, his hidden identity seems illogical and Suman Talwar’s ignorance appears brainless.
Gabbar Is Back is a full on ‘masala’ film with a lot of applause worthy scenes. The buck stops at Akshay Kumar.
If your a Akshay Kumar fan and like a fan of films that have dialogues like ‘Sher Ka Shikaar Karna Ho Toh Bakri Ko Aankhon Ke Saamne Rakhna Padta Hai’ then this one is your sure shot weekend watch.
