When Bollywood meets Hollywood, expectations among moviegoers are generally higher. In addition, if it’s a Jackie Chan film, then people will for sure expect some good action with humour blended with appealing storyline. Now, let’s see how well this movie has entertained the audience with their expectations.
Chan (Jackie Chan) is a famous archaeologist in China who teams up with Indian professor Dr. Ashmita (Disha Patani) and her teaching assistant Kyra (Amyra Dastur) to find India’s lost Bhima treasure in Tibet. Things turn upside down when a badass villain, Sonu Sood, tries to get the treasure in the company of his team of silly goons. Now Chan, Ashmita and Kyra escapes from Tibet and reaches Rajasthan to unravel the Magadha treasure, but what hap follows next remains crux of the story.
Though the plot seems interesting, but it’s quite low in terms of content that entertains moviegoers. It had a lot of good scope, but the execution plays the spoil part. The film has very less amount of thrill and adventure that one would expect from Jackie Chan’s flick. However, if you’re a true Chan’s action comedy stunts, then you will not get disappoint, but the rest is a thing to disappoint. The film lacks logic in every aspect.
Direction is good, but the execution of the good-plot ruins the excitement. Music is good and dancing entertains the audience, especially done by Chan. Cinematography is good, VFX’s are silly, and there’s a lot of need for editing work here.
Now going by the performances, Jackie Chan is always a treat to watch. Sonu Sood had earlier impressed a lot of time with his villainous role, but this time he fails. The serious scene turns into a comic one when he tries to enact a super-villain here. In addition, the sudden change of heart from a villain to a good guy is absurd and offers you a silly laugh. Disha Patani and Amyra Dastur are just to please one’s eye.
Sad to know that the dream of making some name in Hollywood gets a bit shattered of our Indian actors. Well, better luck next time, as overall they are good performer and have much potential to explore.
So is it a Paisa-Vasool film? It’s a good to treat and an entertaining film for your kids, but definitely not for others!
