major is adivi sesh’s dream project and has been in the works for two years. has finally been released and let’s see if it lives up to the hype or not.
The story is quite simple and describes the life of the greatest unnikrishnan sandeep since his childhood. adivi sesh plays major sandeep and saiee manjreka plays his wife. The film shows how Sandeep Unnikrishnan has a fascination with the uniform, joins the army, receives a call to save civilians during the 11/26 attacks in Mumbai, and how he sacrifices his life and makes the country proud. him.
In the past, there have been a number of movies made about the 26 November 2001 attacks in Mumbai, but where the biggest points are the emotions. the story and script are by adivi sesh and it captures well the emotion behind the soldier’s life and sets the movie in a perfect way.
When it comes to acting, major is the best of sesh’s career, having lived in the role of major sandeep. From the boy who goes to school to the young soldier and the brave warrior, sesh shows beautiful transitions in his character. This is the first time sesh has done such massive action blocks and it’s a joy to see him on screen with how cool he looks.
saiee manjrekar didn’t have much range to show her talent in ghani, but here in major, she has wide range and performs wonderfully. she has a meaty role in the first half and her chemistry with her sesh is excellent. Prakash Raj and Revati as Sesh’s parents bring a lot of emotional depth to the film.
The entire second half is full of racy action and there are many scenes that lift you up. the way action is mixed with patriotism is quite good. shobita dhulipala does a good job of playing her and the way her character ties into the climax is very good.
The movie begins on a very slow note. the school day scenes and the major sandeep unnikrishnan’s life goal of becoming a soldier should have been set up in a better way.
The first fifteen minutes are slow and there are some pretty predictable scenes. moreover, more drama should have been added to the husband and wife issues to make the film dramatic. mumbai police played a key role in the 26/11 attacks and many brave soldiers lost their lives, but this aspect has been completely ignored.
adivi sesh movies are known for their strong technical aspects and the same goes for major as well. the production design and sets set up to showcase the taj hotel are top notch. the solid camera work only enhances the images and shows the emotions in a solid way. the dialogues are good and the lyrics too. sricharan pakala’s music is very good but his bgm is something else.
referring to the director sasi kiran tikka, he has done a very good job with the film. without moving away from the emotions, he shows in a detailed and perfect way what happened in the attacks of 26/11. the way he ended the movie on an emotional high is the best part of his storytelling.
Overall, major is a patriotic action drama that lives up to the hype. beautiful performances, endearing drama, and strong emotions are staple assets of the film. If you ignore the slow start, Adivi Sesh leads from the front and takes you on an emotional ride, and makes this movie a good choice to watch this weekend. cheer up.
