A Flying Jatt
“A FLYING JATT” is puerile and senseless, but passable!
With a noble cause in mind, Director Remo D’Souza tries to convey a message for preserving mother earth. But with a cartoonish treatment of the subject that’s far from convincing, the film is frankly suitable for very small kids. Nevertheless, except for its overlong climax, the film never really gets on your nerves and is watchable in your free time and more so if you’re going with kids.
A Flying Jatt is a fantasy film about a Punjabi superhero, who also happens to be scared of heights. Funny and Fierce in equal measure, this Jatt kicks butt as he rids the world of evil. Until one day he meets the Supervillain - Raka, and the face-off begins!
Considering the body of work that Director Remo D’Souza has as a film director, you’d never expect gravity in his latest outing “A FLYING JATT”. And staying true to expectations, the film is mindless and frail in content. But what bothers you more is the film’s infantile presentation. It’s basically a cartoon film, but with real actors. The idea of Green Vs Pollution is good, but hasn’t been presented convincingly. Here, the protagonist gains power from a tree and the antagonist feeds on pollution. Does it remind you of an episode from your favourite cartoon series from your younger days? Even the messy fight scenes seem inspired from some children series. The problems don’t end there. You have tacky VFX and a bloated climax on the Moon and somewhere else in space. It’s hard to imagine what the writers had in mind when they penned this down.
But to its credit, the film fares decently on the entertainment quotient. It atleast makes sure you’re not bored and if you’re ready to forgive the immensely daft developments, you won’t regret the 2.5 hours you spend on it. And if you have kids along with you, the film might be a fun outing for them. It’s actually appropriate for children, as it’s hard to convince adults with such a disorderly screenplay. There are some funny moments too, but none of those are the kind that will stay with you for long. The songs are popular and with Remo at the helm of affairs, the choreography is great too.
The film has little to offer on the performance front. Despite all the popularity that Tiger Shroff has gained for his dance moves and mind-boggling stunts, he still is a far cry from being a good actor. His expressions look fake and his dialogue delivery is poor. His pleasing personality is the sole factor that saves his grace, but he will really need to up his game as far as acting is concerned, to remain relevant for long. Jacqueline is chirpy and plays a quintessential hindi film heroine who is a prop for songs and the love angle. Amrita Singh’s character of the mother, is reduced to a mere caricature, yet she manages to leave a mark. Kay Kay Menon’s anti-hero ways are magnetic and he steals the show everytime he appears on screen. Nathan Jones playing the baddie has just the right personality for the role, although there’s nothing much he had to do as far as acting is concerned.
In all, “A FLYING JATT” is like a children comic book on screen. It entertains you in childish ways, but fails to leave an indelible mark. Watch it with your kids, as there’s not much here for adults to appreciate.
