A Flying Jatt – Review

A Flying Jatt – Review

A Flying Jatt is a funny superhero drama that has ample of light moments that is directed by Remo D’Souza. Its kid-friendly nature seems to be the most salable point! Mr. Malhotra (Kay Kay Menon) is a big time industrialist who has been dumping his industrial waste into a local lake. He is a relentless businessman and hence is after a crucial piece of land where a holy tree (Avatar like) stands with a society owned by Amrita Singh’s character and her sons Aman (Tiger Shroff) and Rohit (Gaurav Pandey).

After Aman’s mother stands tall against Malhotra’s men to save her land, he appoints Raka (Nathan Jones) to kill Aman and his family. Thus, results a fight in the rains, clubbed with thunder, lightening and support from the Holy tree and bam! There is our superhero. Aman turns a superhero overnight while Raka after lying in toxic waste for over 10 days becomes a Toxic superhero should we say? Well, as a baddie of course. With Flying Jatt becoming a popular messiah, Malhotra’s business is dooming and hence Raka with his newly attained powers come to the rescue. Will Raka defeat Aman’s goofy superhero avatar of Flying Jatt? Watch to find out!

Tiger Shroff appears in his third film with this one and he still seems quite uncomfortable. He is convincing as the un-confident superhero at start but his weird boyish charm, a poor dialogue delivery surely come in the way. Nobody can challenge him when it comes to the super air-kicks and hence his action scenes look quite good, nonetheless the actor still has long way to go, to come up in the top league. Jacqueline Fernandez as his love interest has a limited role. She is overly chirpy and shows no signs of efforts taken for this role. Her highlight in this film is clearly the sexy moves on ‘Beat Pe Booty‘! Amrita Singh once again turns the overbearing Punjabi mom after 2 States. She is screechy in certain scenes and the whole drunk act that she does is slightly boring. Kay Kay Menon’s villainous character is highly caricaturish. He is wearing weirdly blingy ties and if you could pay attention beyond those, you would realize his mean look is the same as that in ABCD. This commerical film is strictly for kids. For adults, it may be too silly to learn about pollution from a superhero drama!
