A superhero film in Hindi cinema after the hideous Krrish 3. Even though A Flying Jatt looked like Krrish as far as the posters and the trailers of the film was concerned, Remo D’souza was crystal clear about the film he is making and that’s what saves this film from becoming unbearable. A Flying Jatt may not find takers so easily but there is surely an audience for such films; at least in India.
Remo D’souza’s story of A Flying Jatt makes for a great comic. It is very ordinary, straight forward, predictable but it is something that will be enjoyed by kids and people who like to watch time-pass movies. If the makers think of converting the film into a comic it will turnout to be a blockbuster one. Comic lovers would love it. Remo makes sure that A Flying Jatt turns out to be a great commercial Hindi film and it has every ingredient of it. Film has some brilliant action sequences and shooting almost all of them in slow motion makes it even more enjoyable. There is animation in the film and the narrative supporting it is simply adorable and heart touching. The animation is not that bad considering it is a Hindi film. Film has decent amount of humor and there is emotion too in the film but sadly I did not feel emotional at any point of time.
Coming to not so good things in A Flying Jatt. Being a superhero film, there is hardly any scope to perform. Tiger Shroff is doing what he has been doing in all his last two films; dance and action. He still tries very hard to act convincingly but does not succeed. Jacqueline Fernandes has limited role. She dances and falls in love with the superhero. Nathan Jones had nothing to do in the film except fight. Amrita Singh was over the top in every single scene. Her Punjabi mother act seems to be done to death in this film. I am still wondering why Kay Kay Menon chose to do this film. No doubt he was good in the film but he simply deserves better films. Sachin-Jigar’s music in the film is very seasonal. Forgettable once the film is forgotten.
A Flying Jatt leaves you partially satisfied by the end of it. The film is surely not unwatchable but it appeals only to kids and majorly single screen audience. Throughout the film adults will wonder why are they even watching this film. There is hardly anything for people above age group fifteen. Great watch for kids.
