Millennium Post

Nothing more than a cliché

Suraj, an orphan works three shifts a day and is perpetually in a bad mood. The unsmiling, brooding character breaks out of his shell when he meets the jovial and chirpy visionless, Jenny and experiences a sense of purpose and love in life . It’s yet another love story which is impossible without overcoming obstacles. Suraj opts back to being an MMA fighter and this time in a freestyle, illegal fight where combat ends with the breath of one of the fighters to get enough money to bring back Jenny’s vision. The incident takes him away from his lover . Fate makes them meet again six months later when he lands in the same hospital, where Jenny is working as a physiotherapist. The too much of fate factor is exasperating which only adds a touch of unrealism. The movie has an emotional angle, when Suraj who is disguised recognises Jenny but she fails to do so which makes the leading man shed tears at the loss of his love and so does the audience but for obviously different reason (Deepak Tijori’s impeccable direction). The run time of the movie is 128 minutes but it feels like a few more hours added to infinity, however, dozing off will help undergo the process of watching it; the movie can be easily predicted after a few scenes. A tepid and an insipid script is not the cause of disappointment but Tijori’s inability to cast a good chemistry between the lead pair makes the movie unwatchable. Hooda manages to infuse life and energy into his character, brooding, guilt ridden yet with strenousity his body language depicts it all. Aggarwal by enacting a blind girl, beautifully captures Jenny’s chirpiness and looks adorable in every frame. ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’ fame actor, Maimak Singh enacts the role of Suraj’s trainer and does justice to the character. However ,Suraj flexing off his well muscled body in the movie boxing bits and the action is worth watching and the effect is enhanced by great cinematography by Mohana Krishna.
