Sardaar is a film Karthi had pinned a lot of hopes on as he has done a double role for the first time in his career. The film has been released and read our review to find out if the film has any juice in it or not.
Vijay(Karthi) is a police officer who is very sincere. On the other hand, there is a massive water project being launched in India and the cops have issues with it. They bring in Sardaar to deal with this issue. Vijay is also involved in this case and has a family connection with Sardaar. What is that and how do the father and son solve the issue of this water project scam is the story.
Karthi plays a dual role in this film, and he is superb. But he does well as the aged Sardaar, who is a SPY. As a cop, he looks young and did a great job. The difference between two characters has nicely been shown by Karthi. Raashi Khanna is just about okay, but Chunkey Pandey was very good as the main villain. The other heroine, Rajisha was neat.
Lengthy run time
Sardaar has been directed by Mithran who has made hit films like Abhimanyudu in the past. So, he has a lot of grip on the action and showcases Karthi like never before in Sardaar. The action blocks have been designed well and form the main crux of the story. The manner in which Karthi’s backdrop is revealed is the best part.
But the film starts on a slow note. The runtime is long, and the main point is reached with a lot of time taken. The visuals, BGM, and dialogues are good, but the editing was very bad. Karthi has been showcased in a superb manner and he keeps the audience engaged.
Sardaar has Karthi in a never-before-seen avatar. He is choosing roles and films in a way that his audience love him. The same happens with this film also as Karthi himself is enough and the action sequences are an added advantage to make the audience happy.
Bottom Line – Action Packed
