Nayak Review: This one is a Mahanayak!
Movie: Nayak Rating: 4.5/5
Very rarely it happens that you come across a film which is brave in terms of content. If you haven't seen one yet, Shankar's Nayak is one of them. Although I haven't seen the original film Mudhalvan yet, I can still say that Director Shankar's film has managed to hit the right notes, and that too at the right time.
Right from the beginning, you realize that a heavily intense drama would follow you till the end. It's true. The best thing is that the producers have left no stone unturned to make this film look at par with mega budget movies. The action scenes are perhaps the best ones ever seen in an Anil Kapoor film. Happy to see good special effects and excellent cinematography.
Coming to the story, there's no doubt that it's the real 'Nayak' of the film. The story doesn't give you even a chance to blink, and whatever happens is true to life. Not even a single scene gives you the feel as if you are watching a wrong Movie. Anil Kapoor is in his original form. Rest others have done their respective parts well.
However, the only thing that one may not like at all would be the excess number of songs, and that too placed at the time when the film gets serious. But, since they are pleasant, one wouldn't mind watching the songs as well.
On the whole, if you are a true Cinema lover, who can watch the film without thinking how much better it could have been, go for Nayak. You will surely love it. This film is a blockbuster indeed!
