What About The Story Of The Movie
The film is set in the late 18th century, 25 years after the Battle of Buxar of 1764, when the British continued to establish their roots in India. Marathe, Ruhelkhandi, Nawab were all fighting each other. There was chaos everywhere. At the same time, a one man army like Naga Sadhu (Saif Ali Khan), whom Sab Gosaini speaks of, has been looking for a cruel, deceitful, opportunistic ruler Rahmat Khan (Human Victory) for years.
The motive of his life is to take revenge on Rahmat Khan. Flashbacks reveal that a child and his father were hanged due to Rahmat Khan. It is not difficult to guess that the child is Saif, but this confusion also arises that when the child was hanged, where did Gosaini come from? Not only this, why does Gosain not kill Rahmat even when he gets a chance twice?
Plus Points of The Movie
Well, after going through the gray-dusty areas of Bundelkhand, rocks, unaccountable beatings and bloodshed, answers to these questions are sure, but by then the audience’s patience has been answered. The film also features a Khabari (Deepak Dobriyal), who sniffs the smell for money. At the same time, there is also a mystery woman (Zoya Hussain), who has her own tragedy. These three characters in this revenge drama film are unique in themselves.
Performance of The Actors
Navdeep Singh has also tried his best to make a period western, but this two and a half hour long film moves at a very slow pace, no other exciting twists and turns are seen. If the length of the film was half an hour, it would have been more effective.
In the film, Saif Ali Khan has given very powerful performance in the role of Naga Sadhu, who throttles anyone with the help of lightning.
The pain of being deceived and the fire of revenge is reflected in his body language and eyes. Deepak Dobriyal brings relief whenever he comes on screen. Zoya Hussain has done justice to her character. Human Vij’s cruelty is more visible in his words and action.
Simone Singh is remembered in the role of Rahmat Khan’s wife. In addition to Shankar Raman’s cinematography, costume (matching Pirates of the Caribbean) plays an important role in setting the 18th century.
Music of The Movie
Whereas, songs like Samira Koppikar’s Kaal-Kaal, Tandava, Lahu Ka Rang Kara are in line with the story.
