Jawan review: A must-watch movie.

Jawan movie was released in theaters on 7th September, just before the G-20 summit in New Delhi, India.

A thriller, action movie released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam languages.

Jawan movie was released in theaters on 7th September, just before the G-20 summit in New Delhi, India.

The next three days, from 8th September to 10th, Delhi was super busy for the G-20 summit, and we just avoided going out even when there were no restrictions in our area.

Though it is a Shahrukh Khan movie in the Hindi belt, I wanted to watch it for Nayanthara, Atlee (the director), Vijay Sethupathi, and for the music of Anirudh Ravichander.

We have our share of Bollywood stars with impeccable style and uniqueness.

We have different genres of Bollywood movies that are superb for their social messages.

Stepping across the boundaries, taking up the challenge of making a pan-Indian cinema, and delivering a powerful message to the masses in a go – this was a tricky task.

Movie Plot –

After watching ‘Jawan’ and going through different reviews of the same available on social media, till the time of writing my own, I am against writing the story of the movie, Jawan.

I don’t want to give any kind of spoiler of this movie. The movie is too messy, with Shahrukh Khan playing a double role, Deepika Padukone, and Nayanthara as his partner.

The movie starts with the hijacking of a metro train in Mumbai. It starts with the girl gang of Azad, the jailer of the women’s prison in Mumbai.

It starts with Azad maniacally exposing the wholesome corrupt system by telling the truths of harassment of farmers, common working people, and students who try for the sky but give up midway because of the corrupt system.

The now-collapsed system of India dominated by inept, and inefficient politicians is the sole topic of this visceral movie.

The machinery that is supposed to help the nation is all going bonkers for anti-patriotic activities.

The people we choose to lead us from the front are amassing wealth for themselves and targeting the innocent mass who come in their way is a very normal practice nowadays.

Any kind of public outcry goes into deaf ears, there is a more deafening lull for the poor and weaker section of the society.

Issues shown in this movie are – Disparity in social strata, the disparity in loan recovery from poor farmers and big so-called industrialists, the disparity in service class people and those connected with politics, the disparity in getting treatment in governmental medical institutes and private medical hospitals, and disparity in the education system.

Azad, the police officer plays a Mr.Hyde and Dr. Jekyll kind of role, the only difference is even as Mr. Hyde he is a nice guy, a kind of Robinhood.

Nayanthara as a police officer is convincing. Every single person in the movie is playing a convincing role.

But Vijay Sethupathi – wow, I did hear about his stellar acting skills and now watched him without blinking ( I cried a couple of times in between though ). The accent, the facial expression, the style, the smile – what a suave villain after Arvind Swami.

The loudness can be heard in minute subtlety, the subtility can be seen in detailed privileges, and cunning politicians and officials easily come out unscathed leaving the common people in miserable conditions and still touting them as traitors for raising their voice against atrocities.

This is the whole movie and it aptly, and uninterruptedly delivers the message of wise choosing our leader, the message of solidarity, the message of patriotism, and the message of being loyal to the soil of the nation.

Soundtrack –

Arvind Ravichander, the music wonder, the young man who once thrilled India with his ‘Kolaveri’ song back in 2012, debuted in Bollywood as a solo music composer with Jawan.

The rendition of the ‘ Not Ramaiya Vastavaiya’ song comes in the end as a sigh of relief after a long marathon of melee throughout the movie.

Dialogues –

Dialogues are written by Sumit Arora. The script of the movie was co-written by Atlee and Ramana Girivasan.

A typical Bollywood masala movie with a lot of mass-pleasing dialogues, including a generous appeal from Shahrukh Khan’s Azad character to think about your real concerns like unemployment, inflation, unrest, the economic well-being of the nation, situations of minorities and non-privilege groups of the society, safety of children, and women, international border issue, corruption, etcetera before casting your precious vote to select your representative.

Cinematography –

G.K. Vishnu is the cinematographer of the movie. The background music in the movie is also composed by Anirudh.

Everywhere in the movie, the music goes with the flow of the story, and yes songs are important to let the audience breathe easily when the drama–filled brawls unfold the story.

Budget and Box office collection –

A whopping 300 crores movie, and worthy because of its star casts, music, lavish sets, makeup ( Shahrukh Khan donned so many looks that I failed to count while concentrating on the movie ), costumes, and advertisement and media management.

As per records, the movie is a winner and moving fast past 600 crores in revenue.

Director and Producer of Jawan –

Directed by Tamil film director Atlee, produced by Gauri Khan under the production house Red Chillies Entertainment, co-produced by Gaurav Verma.

Cast –

Shahrukh Khan, Nayanthara, Deepika Padukone, Vijay Sethupathi, Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Ridhi Dogra, Girija Oak, Sunil Grover, Lehar Khan, Aaliyah Qureishi and many more besides cameo role played by Sanjay Dutt and Atlee himself.

Messages, yes you heard it right –

This is the high time in India when politicians are trying very hard to divert the general mindset to fictitious issues instead of concentrating on genuine concerns and real issues.

Unemployment in India is at a record high, Inflation is worrying everyone, crime against women and children is unexpectedly on the rise, there are high NPA of nationalized banks and these banks are put on sale by the govt itself.

About 47% of people surrendered their life insurance policies in the last five years due to their inability to pay the installments.

Many government-owned institutions are now in private hands and there is nothing like curbing on hoarding of essential items. There is nothing like controlling the fraud, fake, and wrong news on social media platforms, Common people are suffering, and no one is here to hear them.

Jawan movie smoothly conveys the serious messages in a loud way, that’s it.

Conclusion –

Hate or love Shahrukh Khan but you can’t help yourself spellbound with his acting skills, and his aura.
