Commando (2013) movie review is out to let you guys know all about the movie and its each department as to how it works. Commando movie review rating will further reveal the worth of the film (you may see the stars of the film below given by the film critic). Now read on Commando review to be aware of this cinematic product.

Commando – A One Man Army has hits the screens today. The film is a small budget movie. Both of this Friday’s releases – Nautanki Saala and Commando are small budget films. Interestingly, Bollywood has been witnessing good content emerging from small movies rather than big budget heavyweight starcast films. It is a good sign that these kinds of films now have place among the Hindi filmgoers. Commando features Vidyut Jammwal in main lead, who enacts the role of Commando – A One Man Army.

The movie is not a worthwhile content to talk big about rather carries an ordinary story and screenplay which has been presented ordinarily on celluloid. There is no novelty at all in the script. These kinds of stories, we have been watching in Hindi films since the outset. But one thing is really appreciable and applaudable and that is the action of the film, which has been choreographed brilliantly to raise the spirits. The stunts are mind boggling and of international standards.

Commando tells the story of Karanvir Dogra (Vidyut Jammwal), who is a commando of the Indian Army. He is detained in China and after spending one year in detention in China as being labeled as Indian spy, he escapes from the land. He then enters into Himachal Pradesh. As soon as he crosses into Punjab, he stumbles upon a girl named Simrit (Pooja Chopra), who escapes from the goons of Amrit (Jaideep Ahlawat) known as AK47. Amrit likes marrying Smirit forcibly but she does not want it.

Story of the film is ordinary there is no novelty at all. The screenplay by Ritesh Shah is mundane with many flaws. It does not get the viewers glued to the screens. Direction by Dilip Ghosh is just about okay. The execution lacks the energy which should be there throughout the flow. Cinematography is nice. Editing is below average – the movie seems stretched in the second half. Music by Mannan Shaah is average. Action is what one must praise high. Stunts are breath-arresting and give an international feel. You enjoy the stunts and the overall action of the movie.

Vidyut Jammwal portrays the one man army role with class. He has maintained his body perfectly as per the demands of the role. Pooja Chopra is fine and looks stunning on celluloid. Jaideep Ahlawat essays the character with gusto. Other cast members deliver the goods aptly as well.

Final Verdict:

In a capsule, Commando – A One Man Army is an ordinary film with lackluster script and weak direction. It is undoubtedly a high octane action film. If you like to watch, do it for action only.
