Review of ‘Mission Majnu’
Even before this, many films like ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, ‘Baby’, ‘Madras Cafe’, ‘Raazi’, ‘Mukhbir’ have been made on Indian spies. Shantanu Bagchi as director also captures the same thread. His story line is also no less interesting, but he could not live up to his execution. The film fails to offer anything new. In the first half, the director spends a lot of time developing the story and characters. Coming to the real issue, a lot of time is spent. The love story of Tariq and Nasreen looks filmy. The most important aspect of a detective film is the suspense and the thrill. Both of these are lacking in the film. There has also been a lot of carelessness in the development of the characters. The emotion of patriotism also does not add up in that way. Patriotic scenes seem forced through India-Pakistan.
Talking about the music, ‘Rabba Jandaan’ and ‘Mati Ko Maa Kehte Hain’ have become soothing in the voices of Jubin Nautiyal and Sonu Nigam. The background score is in keeping with the theme. Bijitesh’s cinematography is decent. Editing should have been tighter. Green color is used everywhere by the art director to show the Pakistani environment. The climax is strong.
Coming to the performances, Sidharth Malhotra pulls off the unsung heroes like Tariq and Amandeep beautifully and convincingly. He adapts to all shades of character with ease and ease. In the role of blind Nasreen, Rashmika has tried her best to strengthen her character, but her character is not layered, it is flat. Kumud Mishra shines once again. Sharib Hashmi proves that he is capable of doing justice to all kinds of roles. It is good to see Parmeet Sethi on screen as RAW head after a long gap. Ashwit Bhatt and Zakir Hussain are also frozen.
Why see- Fans of patriotic and espionage films can watch this film.
