What’s good: Akira is a fast-moving story and thought the mountain.
What’s worse: spoon feeding, formulaic action sequences and a lot of unnecessary drama.
Loo break: We said, Akira is an interwoven story that will be complicated to understand and remember the important parts. I wait for a break.
See or not?: Akira does not mind the films being littered with stereotypical drama, for which you have a good time, not something to think about on the ride home.
Akira is a story of the eponymous character who is forced at an early age (Sonakshi Sinha) to learn to protect themselves from the bad elements in our society. A well shot sequence, the inspirational father (Atul Kulkarni) allows a very small Akira (Mishiekka Arora) more martial arts make to dance to make enough strong to protect themselves from the hooligans.
The film is like a highlighted point. To defend themselves from evil, Akira own land in juvenile prison. Once he emerged, he and his mother are forced to move her brother’s house in Mumbai, but she chooses to stay in a hostel instead.
The second part of the story involves his band of Ganja Smoking Queen ACP (Anurag Kashyap) and obedient servants. They place a huge stash of money and killed a man who, in their quest to keep for themselves. It all began efforts to keep the ending a secret.
His colleague, an honest police Rabiya (Konkona Sen Sharma) who Akira takes no time to get involved in all this investigation, handling.
Akira Review: Script Analysis
Akira with that kind of story, its social and has a lot of potentials to make a political statement. But the writers easier decided to take a business-friendly street. The film is an overabundance of drama, dialogues and spoon-feeding is not helped by their characters for their beauty at times. At one point of time, comparing the film’s most cringy Akira scene with Jesus Christ.
That being the worst part of Akira, the best part is blazing fast set pieces and allow you time to stop and think. The story takes many turns, and unexpected nature puts you invest in the film. However, overlook this process, the characters, and the script does nothing to add as emotional.
Akira Review: Star performance
Sonakshi Sinha something does not really table. His acting is the simple average and is a bit of brightness required by the style of action.
Anurag Kashyap is concerned, they have come a long way since his first role in Shagird. Control and natural behavior are to shine a Hollywood actorish is a good break from their performance by others. His character seems very confident, and to impose our hate a villain.
Konkona Sen Sharma does not have a big role to play length wise, but it is important. She does full justice to it with his usual acting style. Other notable performances from a cast Vijay Lokesh Gupte, what corrupt police officers who gang stunning ACP Rane said.
Akira Review: direction, Music
AR Murugadoss Akira focuses all of their attention to manifest the artist. And in the process, he has chosen to ignore the story that could be pulled out of its deep implications. He handles the action sequences as well, but there’s no freshness.
And, the name of the character that is found at the end is really a sense of ridiculousness when comparing himself to Jesus Christ.
It was the first film shot in 10 minutes and the amazing amended. Finally, the background score to the point and well built.
Akira Review: The Last Word
Akira is an artist. It definitely will manage to get intrigued right from the start. But it is not too dramatic to sit through here. Plus, the lead character actor with a script, are not strong enough to invest in Akira. This film is a good time to watch, but we said, if you are tired of iron conditions and unnecessary drama, you can skip this one. As an overall film to the public, deserve it 3 out of 5 stars.
