A bad movie with useless action
Champion is a bad movie directed by a first-timer Padam Kumar with lots of sloppy actions and romance.

The film revolves round a wealthy boy named Abbas (Abhishek Sharma) whose parents were killed in a plane crash caused by a lunatic, Nazeer (newcomer Rahul Dev). The task of keeping Abbas safe is given to an aspiring cop from Patiala, Rajveer Singh (Sunny Deol, who looks chubby as ever). Rajveer dreams of becoming a well-known cop and receiving lots of medals from the authorities by nabbing all the baddies of the city. But his task is not an easy one since the child refuses to cooperate with him and in comes the chief of the children, Sapna (Manisha Koirala, who also looks chubby as ever). Abbas and Sapna scheme to throw Rajveer out of the house but with little success. It's not until later that Rajveer and the child bond and Abbas agrees to cooperate. How the hero saves the child and kills the villain forms the climax.

The plot is simple and is an old wine in a new bottle for most of the Indian audiences. The director put no effort in establishing the plot. He just keeps putting useless action and romance between the hero and the heroine.

Talking about the performances, we know Sunny Deol is tailor-made for this role. Because action is his only forte. He looks like he gained a lot of weight and coming to his dancing abilities, he's a complete zero in that department. Manisha Koirala looks fat and the clothes she wears in the dance sequences keep accentuating her heaviness. It's about time for Koirala to pack her bags. Rahul Dev shows promise and he is the only character who's likable throughout this dismal movie. Abhishek Sharma is okay considering he's a kid and is not expected to act anyways. The rest of the cast is routine.

Finally, Champion disappoints. But if you have nothing better to do, just watch it once!
