Director Remo D’Souza’s Bollywood movie “A Flying Jatt,” featuring Tiger Shroff, Jacqueline Fernandez and professional wrestler Nathan Jones in the lead roles, has got mixed reviews from the audience.
“A Flying Jatt” is a superhero action film, which is about a Jatt superhero (Tiger Shroff). Jatt is afraid of heights, but what happens when he has to save the world forms the crux of the story. Besides direction, Remo D’Souza has written the script for movie in collaboration with Tushar Hiranandani. Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, Sameer Nair and Aman Gill have produced the film under the banner Balaji Motion Pictures.
It is very hard to fathom the purpose of this aimless flight. If the idea behind A Flying Jatt is to unveil a new money-spinning franchise, we don’t know about the money bit but it would be a moviegoer’s worst nightmare comes true.
Isn’t one bad enough? A few more such flicks would be cinematic hell.
A Flying Jatt is so whimsically infantile in its conception of a homegrown Superman-like crime-buster that it never gains any height.
Even for those that are suckers for superhero actioners, the film lacks the punch required to pass muster.
So where is this Jatt flying? Devoid of magic and mystery, the film takes all of two-and-a-half hours to deliver a grand anti-pollution message: everything has an alternative, but not Mother Earth.
True, there is no alternative for good sense. When will Bollywood stop foisting such glossily-packaged garbage bags upon us?
3 Idiots 2 is under development: Rajkumar Hirani
A Flying Jatt, anchored by a glassy Tiger Shroff whose acting skills are still pretty rudimentary, delivers a truckload of trash that inevitably stinks to high heaven.
Flying on a wing and a prayer, this film about a young Jatt in a rut is a yawn-inducing exercise that only gets worse with every passing frame, each as fatuous as the previous one.
It is a tree in the middle of a water body that triggers all the mayhem. It bears a divine sign on which much irrational mumbo-jumbo is centered.
An industrialist (Kay Kay Menon) desperately needs the land in order to build a bridge to serve his polluting factory by the lake.
The Patiala peg-swigging mother (Amrita Singh) of a blundering martial arts teacher Aman (Tiger Shroff), speaking for all the residents of Kartar Singh Colony, refuses to part with the patch no matter what.
The angry entrepreneur unleashes a man mountain called Raka (WWE fighter Nathan Jones) to browbeat the lady’s son into submission.
Tiger Shroff has delivered wonderful performance in “A Flying Jatt.” He impresses the viewers with his action and dance moves. Jacqueline Fernandez, who is playing his love interest, has done justice to her role and her chemistry with Tiger is one of the highlights of the movie. Nathan Jones is another big attraction of the film. Kay Kay Menon, Amrita Singh and Shraddha Kapoor are also assets of the film, say the audience.
“A Flying Jatt” has good production values, but the movie lacks an interesting story and entertaining screenplay. Vijay Kumar Arora’s cinematography and Sachin-Jigar’s songs and background score, amazing choreography of action and dance sequences are the attractions on the technical front, say the audience.
