Bachchan Pandey (2022) movies review


Farhad Samji’s ‘Bachchan Pandey’ is a tale of the self-proclaimed don of Bhagwa, Bachchan Pandey (Akshay Kumar), who has unleashed a reign of terror, mercilessly killing those who dare to challenge him.

How a budding director, Myra (Kriti Sanon) from Mumbai, along with her actor-friend Vishu (Arshad Warsi), decides to make a biopic on him and land in Bhagwa, and what ensues, forms the crux of this film that stretches for two and half hours.

The film is replete with caricatures and appears more like a dark comedy, as the humour is often garbed in gore, only with some supposedly witty one-liners coming to the rescue.

The plot appears decent, but its ambitious treatment adds to the confusion. The scenes are needlessly stretched and the violence is a determined effort.

Apart from the action sequences, there is a generous dose of blood and gore. With Bachchan Pandey and his coterie of goons — Kandi (Saharsh Kumar Shukla), Bufferiya (Sanjay Mishra), Pendulum (Abhimanyu Singh) and Virgin (Prateik Babbar) — slash people’s throats and fire at them without blinking an eyelid.

The first half of the film, although overstated, at least appears credible, establishing Bachchan Pandey’s character, but post-interval, the film makes for tedious viewing.

In the final act, factors such as Bachchan’s love life with Sophie (Jacqueline Fernandez), who’s killed, the betrayal by his boss (Mohan Agashe), and his mother (Seema Biswas), who has stopped speaking to him for the past 10 years, appear to be forced attempts to add melodrama, and evoke sympathy for Pandey. These only lengthen the film, apart from not being in sync with Pandey’s character and the flavour of the plot, and drag the film down by several notches in one go.
