From the depths of the sea, from the heights of the sky, from the vastness of a desert and from the darkness of the forests when a common man is trained 24x7 to serve the nation, a commando is born and this week Vidyut Jamwal successfully convinced the audience as a new action star in the industry.
Bestowed with excellent physique and decent looks each action he has performed on screen is so convincing that you cannot take your eyes off as for the first time all stunts has been performed by an actor himself without using body doubles and even without using ropes and wires for most of his stunts
The story begins with a crash of an Indian army helicopter on a routine training into a Chinese border and Captain Karanveer Singh Dogra (Vidyut Jamwal) is arrested by the Chinese forces suspecting him as a spy. Now both governments for the sake of their self interest put Karanveer’s life at stake. Karanveer escapes from the Chinese forces and reaches Pathankot in India though the forests. There he runs into a girl, Simrit (Pooja Chopra) who is escaping from AK 74 (Jaideep Ahlawat) goons and that's how Karanveer gets a new motive as a Commando.
Dilip Ghosh, the director has served a cheesy, raw action flick that one would love to see once. All three main characters were able to hold your attention throughout the movie. The screenplay is crispy and the story has nothing novel to mention. Vidyut Jamwal as a commando and his stunt director Franz Spilhaus who bag the spotlight. Pooja Chopra is decent but every Punjabi girl should not be portrayed as 'Geet' of ‘Jab we meet’ and this is where the director needed to do a little work to give Pooja a different identity.
Cinematography by Sejal Shah is extremely notable especially for the song ‘Sawan Bairi’. Music and lyrics are average and does not make much impact. Jaideep Ahalawat has come up with a different kind of villain and does his part well.
If you are an action flick lover, Commando will slake your thirst for sure
