Planet Movies Rating – 2.5/5
A Flying Jatt is a 2016 Bollywood superhero action film co-written, choreographed and directed by Remo D’Souza under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures. Tiger Shroff, Jacqueline Fernandez and professional wrestler Nathan Jones are in the lead roles. Shroff is playing the role of a superhero and Fernandez will be playing his love interest in the film. The film released worldwide on 25 August 2016.
Don’t get me wrong. The first half of the film is very entertaining and is a laugh riot in some genuinely funny scenes. The songs are very entertaining and so in Tiger Shroff’s screen presence. Unfortunately the sloppy and dragging screenplay in 2nd half of the film can’t be salvages even by Tiger Shroff. The movie is a tad 30 mins longer due to its 2.5 hrs length.
Jacqueline Fernandes entertains but her looks and role is certainly not the best of what we have seen before. Amritha Singh as Tiger’s mom has performed really well. Her explanation of Sikhs 12 o clock history is an eye opener who make fun of Sardar ke 12 baj Gaye.
There are many cartoon sequences which are well developed through computer graphics but the graphics used in the climax could have been better. The antagonist scenes are boring and they could have used an Indian instead.
The film delivers a social message in the form of civic issues such as illegal garbage dumping and Eco unfriendly factories. To save Mother Earth is the motive of this Indian super hero. The Indian superhero flies low due to his fear of heights and is coloured with Sikh religious undertones. Kay Kay Menon is not so convincing as an industrialist and he hams at places.
A flying Jatt can be enjoyed strictly with school kids at best.
