Instant Movie Review #21 (Lion)

Satyadeva's - "Lion"

Positives:
1) NBK's performance
2) Dialogues
3) Sub plots

Negatives:
1) Screenplay and Direction
2) Music
3) Dim-witted villain

Story: Disoriented mentally with two different characters, the main narrative commences with Bose (NBK) struggling to find his real identity after recuperating from a major head injury which connects to his past.

Directions and Screenplay: Debutant director, Satyadeva's screenplay is surely my major concern about the movie, his distinct approach felt unique with all the subplots, but the exhilarating factor was totally missing in the first half and the second half has been just a bummer.

Performances: This movie is undeniably a one man show, NBK's over-the-top dialogues, and his outrageous performance certainly established the movie really well and his compelling screen presence was always fun to watch.

Verdict: Altogether, Lion missed out all the core ingredients of a solid family entertainer and you may have to think twice before taking this roller coaster ride.

My Rating - 2/5
Grade - C (Meh! Probably a rental)
