Chandu Champion Movie Story Review:
Kabir Khan, the story of Sumit Arora and Sudipto Sarkar is inspiring. It is based on the life of a person that not many people know about and that works in favor of the makers. The screenplay by Kabir Khan, Sumit Arora and Sudipto Sarkar is captivating and filled with some dramatic and emotional moments. However, it also leaves a lot to be desired. Kabir Khan, Sumit Arora and Sudipto Sarkar’s dialogues are average and some one-liners are memorable.

Kabir Khan’s direction has its merits. The plot moves between events in 2017 and events from 1952 to 1972 and the transition is very smooth. This is especially true in the second half. He does not let the film down and ensures that the film has mainstream appeal. Muralikant defeating Dagdu, Muralikant’s first meeting with Tiger Ali, Muralikant struggling to eat with a fork are some of the scenes that stand out. The intermission point looks like it was shot in one take and adds to the tension. After the interval, the matka sequence is memorable and Muralikant’s monologue before the members of the Indian Olympic Association. The ending is watchable and Murali imagining the important moments of his life is a novel idea.

The finale, on the other hand, can be a nail-biter. A semi-final match has more moments than a climax. Also, a lot of sports movies have been closed of late and that also has an effect. Secondly, Muralikant should have portrayed the reason for filing a case against the President of India rather than describing it verbally. So, the result would have been more. And finally Muralikant’s family gets a raw deal. Muralikant runs away to Poona, and never informs his parents or brother that he is safe. He doesn’t even care if they’re okay, especially when their lives are at stake. It is also surprising that his family had no idea that he had reached the finals in the Olympics. They get information about it only through radio. Due to this aspect, no one is too impressed by Muralikant’s brother’s scene when he tells the former that he cannot take care of him.

Chandu Champion Movie Screening:
Karthik Aaryan gets into the skin of the character and delivers an excellent performance. It’s unlike anything he’s done before and proves again that he’s a powerhouse of talent.
