The rest of the story is as to how Krishna fights back in life and wins Sarkar’s heart by taking part in a boxing championship.
Movie Review: The director, Krishna, failed this time to showcase Kiccha Sudeep as a Pan-Indian star. The movie doesn’t seem to be an Indian pan movie, as it lacks creativity in the movie. The acting by Kiccha Sudeep and Akanksha Singh is top-notch. Notably, the actress’ performance is awe-inspiring, but she has limited screen presence throughout the film.
Suniel Shetty has given his best to the Sarakar’s character, while other actors like Avinash, Kabir Duhan Singh, Sharat Lohitashwa too gave their best to the respective roles. Sudeep’s body is not up to the mark, and you feel awkward when he show-off his muscles. It looks like a teenager who achieved his first fitness milestone as he cheerfully shows off his body in front of the mirror. Other than that, Kiccha Sudeep’ screen presence enhance the liveliness of the film.
The climax of the movie is very much predictable as you feel tired and you feel like when this move gonna end, since you lien 3 hours in the theatre which is a tad too long, makers could have been reduced the duration of the film. The villain played by Sushant Singh as Rana is very irritating and dummy.
Overall, Pailwan is a mildly entertaining drama that is enhanced by the emotionally charged moments in the second half and a good social message. Go in well prepared as there is nothing new that will be showcased here.
