Before the trailer release of the film Satyamev Jayate, audience were known of this John Abraham and Manoj Bajpayee starrer film. Earlier before, you have seen John doing films like Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, more like on realistic tone. Similarly expected from Satyamev Jayate until the trailer was released, it turns out to be commercial Bollywood entertainer film with lot of actions and blood-boiling dialogues. The film is about the corruption as when it is taken as unforgivable deed. The film is more like an old 90s revenge drama stories with bits of patriotism on it. Releasing on its Independence Day also give the film so much significance as well. The film is directed by screenwriter turned director Milap Zaveri.

About the film

Vir played by John Abraham is a young angry Indian man who appears to be rebel in this world of corruption and evilness around.

He seems to be on the mission where he is killing corrupt police officers alphabetically. Everything remains same until the DCP Shivansh Rathore played by Manoj Bajpayee came in-between of him and his killing spree. Then, the whole plot turns into that usual cat and mouse chase

Why to watch

If you haven’t see a high-octave action film with lot of back to back dialogues and fighting scenes, this could be your chance. The film quite resemble to the 90s era. John Abraham did well in the film but nothing much different or up to the mark. Manoj Bajpayee tried to make his performance above the level but unfortunately, the character and the script has its limitations. Nora Fatehi who has reprised the popular song ‘Dilbar’ originally helmed by Sushmita Sen did fantastic job on that. It’s like few minutes of grace upon the film where you can really enjoy Nora’s dance.

Why to not

Well, there is probably a lot of reason for not watching the film. As said earlier, the film has the very much cliché and usual story of 90s era based upon a revenge story. It is just tried to wrap it up in a patriotism package. All that loud action, trembling bodies, all blood and explosions that you have usually get bored of, from early 90s era is the part of the film. Audience who are looking for much sensible cinema will be disappointed with the film. No grey shade characters in the film, it carries the typical either so good or so bad kind of characters in the film. There will be a lot of times when you get to remember that you entered in the hall to see some patriotic action film but ended up watching a revenge drama.

The final Call

If you are not expecting any great story or sensibility out of the plot, you can enjoy the film as a loud action film. If you really want to see bad people getting beaten to the pulp, then you will like the film as well.  Manoj Bajpayee could also one reason to just try the film once.
