An absolute entertainer, with a few hiccups in between, ‘Sooryavanshi’ is definitely the best film in the Rohit Shetty cop universe that began in 2011 with Ajay Devgn as ‘Singham’, continued with its sequel, three years later and presented Ranveer Singh in an all-new avatar with ‘Simmba’ in 2018.
From the first scene itself, ‘Sooryavanshi’ will keep you engaged and entertained throughout its entire duration. Rohit Shetty gives no time to the audience to breathe as he introduces several characters within the first fifteen minutes and sets the mood of the film. The pace drops in the sequences where Veer Sooryavanshi’s married life is falling apart with Ria, played by Katrina Kaif in a brief but dependable role. The film is a treat for the Akshay-Katrina fans as the beloved reel couple reunites on screen after more than a decade. The performances from the entire supporting cast are convincing. Jaaved Jaaferi as Kabir Shroff, Joint Commissioner in the Mumbai Police, provides able support to the titular character. Akshay Kumar’s sidekicks add the humour quotient required in the film.
Sooryavanshi shines in the last thirty minutes with Ajay Devgn and Ranveer Singh making grand entries as Singham and Simmba respectively. The repartee between the three leads is smartly written with punchlines alluding to their other fictional characters and real lives. Ranveer is hilarious with his one-liners. And in the end Ajay even hints the next film in the series, Singham 3 that will take forward the story from where Sooryavanshi has ended.
