Suriya New Movie Bandobast Review
Suriya’s Bandobast needs to click at any cost as he has been only giving big flops in the past. The action entertainer which was directed by KV Anand was hit the screens yesterday.
Prime Minister Chandrakant Varma (Mohan Lal) is a sincere politician who always does good things for the people of the country. On the other hand, Ravi Kishore (Suriya) is an enigmatic officer who helps the PM in all his covered operation and becomes close to hom. As time passes by, the PM gets killed in a crazy military attack and things turn upside down. Who has killed the PM? What will Ravi Kishore do to find the culprits? Who was actually behind all this? To know the answer, you need to watch the film on big screen…..
KV Anand likes to make movies that are loaded with action and commerical elements. Bandobast is no different from his previous films, but the script is so sluggish and half-baked to keep the audience invested. Anand tried to make it look like a Bond like action film, but focusing on too many elements only made it a boaring action saga.
Suriya as always gives his hundred percent to the character. He looks fits and apt as the Chief Security Officer of the Prime Minister. He also appears as an organic farmer and a romantic besides being the savior. Mohanlal’s charismatic screen presence is a pleasure to watch while his character lasted. Arya is okay as the youngster who has no clue on politics. Sayyesha did well within the limitations of her character.
Bandobast is a political action drama which works strictly in parts. The political angle, action thrills, and performance from suriya and Mohan Lal are a major boost to the film.
