A Flying Jatt is a superhero film starring a young hero known for his martial art skills, opportunities are bound to be sky-high, in spite of the fact that Bollywood has mostly shied away from the superhero genre as it lacks the technical expertise available to Hollywood filmmakers while making such movies.
A Flying Jatt is a film with a great idea and who better to play the superhero and his mother than Tiger Shroff and Amrita Singh. He combines an amazing agility with an innocent appearance and is completely convincing as an unconquerable do-gooder who saves the world.
How do you recognize a desi superhero? He’s the boy whose costume is stitched by his mother. And at some point, he flies to the local sabzi mandi because mom needs lauki. These were a few moments in A Flying Jatt, in which director and co-writer Remo D’Souza presents what is maybe the world’s first Sikh superhero in cinema.
Tiger's newest release A Flying Jatt, which has been directed by Remo D'Souza, ends up coming across as a movie made just for kids
The story revolves around the Malhotra (Kay Kay Menon), a merciless business tycoon, wants to capture a piece of land owned by Mrs. Kartar Singh (Amrita Singh), the widow of a Sikh warrior, who has no plans of selling it to the man responsible for dumping toxic waste in the nearby lake. When Malhotra unleashes his fierce enforcer Raka (Nathan Jones) to do the needful and chop down a 'divine' tree on the property, Singh's son Aman (Tiger Shroff) ends up locking horns with him and in the process, gets blessed with superpowers, while Raka turns into a dreadful monster after falling in toxic waste.
On realizing his superpowers, Aman adopts the persona 'Flying Jatt' to help people and romance his ladylove Kirti (Jacqueline Fernandez). But, Malhotra is not one to lie low and Raka has now turned into a super-villain thanks to the toxics in his veins and the stage is set for a big battle. Who wins the ultimate showdown?
Tiger Shroff is adorable and relevant. The guy is sheer magic to watch on the dance floor and in his fight sequences. Jacqueline Fernandez talks in a high-pitched voice throughout the movie and her fringe haircut and nerdy glasses don't really flatter her much. But, she is so impressive in the Beat Pe Booty song. Kay Kay Menon is OK in his restricted role. Nathan Jones has a huge screen presence, though he sounds hilarious when he talks in Hindi with an American accent. Amrita Singh has done a good job, but it is Gaurav Pandey as Aman's brother, who comes across as a lovely surprise. Pandey proves to be a good actor in a supportive role.
As for the movie’s point of view, it becomes very clear from the opening credits itself that Remo considered kids to be his target viewers for the movie. We would have not minded it but for the preachy undertone throughout the movie, whether it be about pollution or the Sikh culture. At one point, you will be tempted to wonder if Remo was skillfully making a funny documentary on pollution under the garb of a superhero film.
Remo seemingly decided to give logic the day off when he was figuring how his hero would get superpowers and what kind of superpowers to be given to Aman. But, like mentioned previously, kids are bound to have a great time watching this movie.
The screenplay is reasonably weak and the dialogues are not so influential. The special effects are good enough. The music is not really impressive but the 'Beat Pe Booty' number is good one.
A Flying Jatt begins on a decent note, picks up the pace, throws some light-hearted moments, and then faces the curse of the second half. It drags its feet from becoming the smart movie just when it’s needed and goes for the all-explaining commentary.
Overall, A Flying Jatt is worthy to watch once due to Tiger Shroff’s heroic act for entertaining kids.
