Drona Movie Review


All hype no show – Wish I could give this one line review of Drona. Disappointing fare from Goldie Behl.

Like all super hero films the story is simple – Hero fights to save the world from a villain who wants to be immortal. The only difference being, that this superhero is straight out of Indian mythology with an Indian look.
The biggest pain in the movie was Kay Kay Menon’s character Riz Raizada. Poor characterization puts Menon’s effort to waste. The character seems to be inspired by Batman’s Joker. His weird and garish wardrobe and hairstyle makes him look like a gay… really a torture.

The movie reminded me of that tacky serial of our childhood Alif Laila where the virtuous desi-super hero fights all odds to beat the villain. The challenges that Drona faces to succeed in his mission are far from impressive. The sword fights and car chases are all clichéd.

Abhishek Bachchan, quite honestly speaking is unsuitable for the role of a Super hero. One cannot help but make the unjust comparison with Hrithik Roshan in Krrish. Also, he lacks the physique of an action hero; he should work that belly flab out.

Priyanka Chopra could’ve been called the saving grace if her character was a little stronger. Jaya Bachchan has a small role, in most of which is she seems she is almost crying.

However, the actual saving grace of Drona is the special effects of the movie. The only thing you could bear the movie for. Otherwise a movie with a lousy story, average performances and poor screenplay and direction could just be called a ‘waste of time and effort’.

By the end of the movie… I really felt sorry for Abhishek who had so many hopes from this movie.

Rating 1.5/5
