Lovely, for Gandhi Jayanti we get a big war film. Which is pretty common actually, or at least an action film, it’s a family holiday and action films can bring in the whole family. Plus, patriotism!
Wonderfully edited, Amitabh’s voice driving us into this triumphal music, and then all the best bits of the film thrown together from sword fights to gorgeous castle scenes.
Definitely Bhansali hangover, all those candles. And a bit of a Bahubali, all those horses. Hard to know what the actual film will be like from this, the bits we see are so quick that almost anything could be surrounding them. Even the action scenes, if we have one really cool sword leap surrounded by boredom, that’s not good.
Kangana only gets two lines, but did they sound odd to you? Like, not resonant enough? Like she wasn’t talking from her diaphragm or something? I don’t know, they didn’t feel quite right. But again, that’s just one line pulled from the rest of the movie, maybe we won’t notice in context.
In the same way, there were a few moments when the CGI felt kind of rough, and I didn’t get the sense of vast advancing armies so much as like 6 people. But that’s just from a little glimpse, we don’t know what it will be like in context.
I don’t know, what did you think?
