New Action Hero Has Arrived in Bollywood
12 April 2013 | by cybersupamSee all my reviews

Oh my gosh! Incredible. Finally Vidyut Jamwal, a real action hero has arrived in India. Although he debuted in Force along with John Abraham, it would be wrong to term him hero for that, because his role was of a villain. But in Commando, he is a full-fledged tough action hero without much CGI effects as disclaimed by the film units.

To be straight, Commando works only because of Vidyut Jamwal's martial arts stunt skills, and the villain who would go beyond ruthless or brutal for saving his honor. Besides, former Miss. India Pooja Chopra's first leading role which would remind you of Kareena Kapoor's role as Geet in Jab We Met as a talkative with straight forward behavior. Pooja performed her best to go on accordingly with the offered role, and is not less impressive.

Vidyut plays here as Karanvir Dogra, a savior to Simran who is forcefully threatened to marry by the local gang leader AK 74. Karan is a highly skilled Indian Commando who was wrongfully arrested & tortured in China by mishap during an operation. After one year, the story shifts to Simran who is on an attempt to secretly run away from home to stay away from AK 47, who is cynical to marry her. Then, she meets Karan who encounters all the goons to prevent her from being chased by them. Now, begins the cat and mouse chase part.

There were many Bollywood action movies in the past, but this movie holds a special place in the list because of the real life martial artist Vidyut Jamwal who alone dominates the whole story of Commando. Action movies acted by Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Suniel Shetty, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn, John Abraham etc. were nothing to this newly arrived action hero who is fully prepared to impress the present generation with a macho & flexible personality. Those olden days are over where CGI and wired stunts were carried to entertain the audiences in the form of masala movies. Yes, Commando is also a masala action movie, but it's much tougher and real like type in actions and stunts. I would term Vidyut Jamwal as a new Bruce Lee with lean muscled body who can fly, jump or climb to any extent if necessary to eliminate the goons. And yet, he performed those with panache and natural looking form that you cannot negatively compliment on it. Newbie director Dilip Ghosh did unpredictably a good job.

Final word guys – watch it if you are really a crazy fan of action or thriller genre movies, and sure you will be impressed by Vidyut. Keep my words. And, Vidyut has a good way to go ahead in Bollywood.
