    Verdict - Jaded and Uninspired

    Son Of SardaarWatch trailerRelease date : November 13, 2012

    Keeping in mind it's release date, SOS is akin to a firecracker; loads of sound and lights but little enjoyment and too much of it at the end of it all just ends up giving you a headache. A remake of the Telugu film Maryada Ramanna by S.S. Rajamouli, this is more of an adaptation. However if you have seen Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore, Wanted, Yamla Pagla Deewana and Singham then a strong sense of d\xe9j\xe0 vu is ready to sweep over you.

    The movie's protagonist Jassi (Ajay Devgn) returns home to sell off a piece of land, he's inherited only to face off against Ranvijay Singh's (Sanjay Dutt) clan who are baying for his blood. The reason for this is an age old family feud fuelled thanks to Jassi's father murdering Ranvijay's brother. While Jassi wants no part of the feud, he's not afraid to raise his hand when required. He also manages to snag Jassi's niece Sukh (Sonakshi Sinha) all while making himself a guest at Ranvijay's house, who follows 'Atithi Devo Bhavo' far too closely; thus ensuring Jassi's safety as long as he's a house guest. Much of the movie just runs in circles trying to resolve this conundrum.

    Garish, loud, obnoxious are few of the words I'd use to describe the movie. I didn't go in expecting something meaningful but the level to which the movie transcends is just headache inducing. Be it the over-the-top action, the unconvincing accents, the flat attempts at humour or the limp songs, everything will have you squirming in your seat uncomfortably.

    However in the past if you have enjoyed movies of the same calibre, you might find things that might justify the price of the ticket in your mind. On the acting front other than Juhi Chawla, nobody seems to be even trying to earn their paycheck.

    'Son of Sardaar' is just yet another movie in the neo-masala movies of Bollywood, we have witnessed over the past few years. This lacks anything new that will make it stand apart, best watched if you have the urge to blow your hard earned money.
