It’s our very own desi super hero flick with a lot of inspiration from the foreign brigade but prepared at a much lesser budget of course.

Tiger Shroff plays the mumbling tumbling simple Sikh boy and a martial arts teacher who develops superpowers . One wouldn’t get a prize to guess he plays both parts quite naturally. But beyond that lets just remember that more than performance and charisma, it’s sincerity and hard work that show in his work, be it dance or action or martial arts.

Jacqueline very disappointingly plays just a barbie and nothing else.

Amrita Singh as the bold and loud Punjabi mother was a delight to watch.

KK was good in the negative role.

The initial half had a light goofy touch to it with some laughs and amusing scenes. The second half got a little heavy but on the good side had a nice message for the kids about pollution and saving the earth et al.

But overall the movie was very flat and downright boring. In spite of the light hearted humour, the dance ,the action, the good message, it doesn’t take off beyond that.

The special effects were very average and the sequences seemed very amateurish.

If considered purely as a kids movie, it’s still passable but otherwise it’s completely avoidable.

Meant purely for hard core Tiger Shroff fans.

Score 5 on 10.
