Main Atal Hoon Movie Review

Makes The Same ‘PM Narendra Modi Biopic’ Mistake – Just A Great Story Doesn’t Guarantee A Good Biopic!

The fact that it informs something about one of the greatest political leaders of all time…

What's Good?

…but the makers don’t use that information to execute an entertaining film

What's Bad?

Multiple times!

Loo Break:

Skip it, especially if you’re a fan of the man

Watch or Not?

Ravi Jadhav & Rishi Virmani’s story once again proves how not every great story can be turned into a biopic.

I don’t think I’ve ever been so critical about a Pankaj Tripathi performance, but this is not it. Not because he’s doing something wrong, but because he didn’t notice he’s doing something wrong throughout the film.

His impersonation of Shri Atal Vajpayee steers to the caricature land way too often than you’d expect. He tries hard, but it just looks like he’s reading the dialogues instead of just delivering them.

Ravi Jadhav‘s direction never allows the narration to achieve the desired impact. Even the high-voltage sequences pass away blandly because of poor writing.

All said and done; this is the classic case of having so much to tell but failing to find the right way to do it.  Two stars!
