Bollywood has always struggled when it has come to science fiction and superhero films and films like Krrish3, Ra One, Mr. X and Drona are substantial proof for the claim. A Flying Jatt from its trailer did not seem to be anywhere close to being a record breaker of the immature superhero films Bollywood has showered upon us.
Starring the new boy on the block, Tiger Shroff as a blue bottle of the combined powers of Dead pool, Superman and Krrish is a delight for your toddlers but certainly not for you.
Choreographer turned director Remo D’Souza plans a strong impression with his superhero flick after his dance drama series Anybody Can Dance and he terribly falters. A Flying Jatt is a naive story portraying a non-compliant Tiger Shroff performing incredible stunts giving a positive message to protect the environment with some delightful songs and a simple-soft love affair of Tiger and Jacqueline is.
Despite a lose plot, A Flying Jatt highlights the immaturity of Remo D’Souza as a director and story writer. The story is unaligned and in a mess with a very old timid plot but still manages to give you some giggles every now and then.
The supporting line up of Jacqueline, Kay Kay Mennon, Amrita Singh and Gaurav Pandey manage to do their bit but do not help the cause much. Nathan Jones, the bad guy makes a standout impression and somehow helps digest the Flying Jatt in the incredible action scenes with the Flying Jatt.
Tiger Shroff compared to his predecessor Bollywood superheroes Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan, Tiger hroff begins on a weak foot but ends up with decent momentum as a superhero. In contrast to Heroapnti and Baaghi, our Flying Jatt certainly delights with his stunts and moves but his acting skills still need tutoring.
A Flying Jatt manages to fit the standard set by Bollywood superhero films but on the whole is a dismal state of affairs. Definitely being the only Bollywood release of the week, you are not left with much choice other than the pre occupants Rustom and Happy Bhag jaayegi. To sum up and in accordance with our new review system A Flying Jatt is a Second Class Sleeper journey of two and a half hours
Cinema Station Rating: 2/5 (Second Class Sleeper)
