It’s a film where image takes the better of honest intention. Where star scores over the sensitive subject. The end result. Abhimanyu turns into a fare that is all sound and fury signifying nothing to recall Macbeth’s soulful soliloquy.

 

Strutting and fretting Arjun Sarja, touches upon the latest currency among film makers – the Right to Education to weave a formulaic social treatise.

 

However, with high voltage action, songs and crass comedy, drowning the larger social issue in the din, Arjun Sarja renders Abhimanyu, a trite, tiresome tale told by a star never to be heard beyond the darkened confines of the theatres.

 

Invoking Kalam, tabling statistics, and pontificating on the need to nationalise education if the deprived were to walking into the portals of schools, Arjun Sarja, ensures he makes all the politically correct noises.

 

Rightfully so, the private educators in the film, and those that would get to watch the film, are sure to hold a grudge against Abhimanyu and seek to silence his unpalatable truths about the state of country’s education system.

 

But Arjun Sarja ensures that even as he espouses a noble cause he does not disappoint his core constituents – the fan base. Needless to say, our six abs Karate master provides them with all the whistling moments as Abhimanyu takes on villians led by Vikram Rathore commissioned to finish him off by the private educators.

 

Stylised action sequences, car chases, kidnaps, and fusillade of bullets and fist fights, ensure the fans get their money’s worth. But at what cost? With Right to Education as its prologue and epilogue, Arjun Sarja’s whips up a delirious drama only the die-hards would digest.

 

For the rest though Abhimanyu turns out an outing whose promise is nipped in the bud of commercial cauldron and a maelstrom of madness that goes on in-between. Still, Arjun Sarja deserves commendation for treading a different trail and trying to knit a social issue into the starry scheme of things he eventually ensures Abhimanyu is. Well, the heart is in the right place, if only the will was there to walk that extra mile in making a sensitive engaging cinema rather than a mundane malarkey that Abhimanyu finally is.
