The revolution


Krantiveer, movie review

The original Krantiveer, released almost a decade ago had Nana Patekar and Dimple Kapadia. Now, this called as Krantiveer – The Revolution, is a sequel to it which is socially and politically relevant today. Krantiveer – the revolution – movie review…

Its time to free the country of violence, terrorism and corruption.

This story begins where the first Krantiveer ends and this time it’s about the revolution that concerns the younger generation and is all about the power game that power drunk people are interested in. The film dares to blow lid off the issues that are disturbing the society. It is about the young fiery protagonist Roshni (introducing Jahan Bloch), who is the screen daughter of Dimple and Nana.

The last time around, we rooted out the devils that came from across the seas. Now the demons are within. And they are more vicious and wicked. We need to fight them with a new force and energy. The youth. They are now ready to act only to stop, when they have achieved their mission to rid the society of evils, corruption, anarchy and terrorism.

Roshni, the young daughter of the man responsible for the last revolution Pratap Narayan Tilak is now wielding the power of media as a fearless journalist. Roshni has inherited not only the courage and sting of her legendary father, but also the spirited lingo and the indomitable style. Now she is grown up to become an honest and fearless journalist, who takes on the system and launches her own revolution.

She is joined by her college friends, Uday (Harsh Rajput) and Goldie (Aditya Singh Rajput) and Vishal (Sameer Aftab).

They want to cleanse the society of its ills, and hence we have the exposes, provocative speeches and confrontations. This time their revolution shakes the nation into searching its conscience and see peace, freedom and justice for all.

Roshni acts as a pivot of the revolution (Krantiveer) and gets along her determined college mates Vishal, Uday and Goldie. The story takes all of them on a mission to rid the present society of the evils, a revolution for cleaning the system.

Jahan Bloch lends a spirited performance, especially as a newcomer and then there are equally competent guys – Sameer Aftab, Aditya and Harsh. It has the usual villains like Govind Namdeo, Mukesh Tiwari and even the chocolate guy Aman Verma.

Nothing impressive in this film Krantiveer except the punchy dialogues and hard hitting moments, the typical Mehul Kumar type.

Many Bollywood films in recent times deal about corruption in the powers that be, but again, this time too, Krantiveer stands out for its hard stance and fiery performances.
