After weeks of crushing disappointments, including Baaghi 2 and my parent’s search for a groom for me, I was stoked to check out Shoojit Sircar’s October, the latest action-packed instalment in Marvel’s cinematic universe.
This might be Varun Dhawan’s most ambitious film yet. Mostly because he is helming the sequel to one of the most popular superhero movies in the world.
Dan (Varun Dhawan) is a waiter who is trying to make ends meet by, well, waitressing, and wants to save the world. He signs up for an experiment that will make him buff and super hot and then gets bitten by a radioactive spider.
Varun gives an earnest performance, but the lack of quality CGI sinks the ship. There are fewer stunts than there are in a usual Marvel movie, probably in an attempt to showcase Dhawan’s depth as an actor, but it’s a let down that there are just two major action scenes in this superhero movie.
There is an unnecessary subplot about a girl he barely knows being in a coma, and supposedly having asked for him. It only takes away from what little stunts we’ve got going in the film.
Debutante Banita Sandhu, who plays the aforementioned girl in a coma, tries to work with the Black Widow derivative character that she’s been given, but is ultimately dragged down by the lack of CGI.
Shoojit tries to make a film that crosses the boundaries set by its genre, but while the intentions are good, the result doesn’t touch its mark.
I was surprised to see that (SPOILER) Stan Lee doesn’t make an appearance in the movie, as is the norm. Shoojit Sircar’s debut attempt at a superhero movie results in a lacklustre affair that is hardly a one-time watch.
