Anjaan – Movie Review

Verdict - “Predictable plot and weak screenplay makes Anjaan a huge let down”

Anjaan, another hugely anticipated movie of 2014 released on August 15th amid tremendous fanfare but failed to satisfy the sky high expectations.

Starring Suriya, Samantha and Vidyut Jamwal in the lead, the plot of the movie is about two Mumbai Gangster-duos Chandru Bhai (Vidyut Jamwal) and his best friend Raju Bhai (Suriya). It is just another ordinary revenge drama with few predictable twists.

Director Lingusamy has come up with a script that is spineless and with a weak screenplay. There is absolutely nothing new to look out in Anjaan’s story. And its mighty length adds misery to our suffering. The movie’s second half drags with lots of unwanted scenes portraying friendship of Chandru Bhai and Raju Bhai and tests our patience till the end.

Suriya was masculine with rugged look and in a not before seen stylish avatar. So was Vidyut Jamwal. Both the dudes were enough to woo us with their charisma and screen presence. Even Samantha changes her girl-next-door look in this movie to an ultra modern fashion babe. She is not to be missed in the songs “Kadhal Aasai” and “Oru Kaan Jadai”. Her chemistry worked out well with Suriya.

Another flaw in this movie was the lip sync off for the Bollywood actors Manoj Bhajpai and Vidyut Jamwal which could be easily noticed and in few scenes it gives you a feeling of watching a dubbed movie.

Santhosh Sivan’s camera work was stupendous and it was the only positive component I could find in this movie. The movie looked colourful through his lens. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s songs have already topped the charts but the misplacement of the songs makes it not an enjoyable one on the screen.

On a final note, Anjaan didn’t meet up with the hype it created before the release. Dull script and boring screenplay makes Anjaan an awful one. The movie could be watched only for Suriya, Samantha and Santhosh Sivan’s cinematography in the end.

My Rating - 2/5
Grade - C (Lost in the Midway!)
