“Matlab India ne bhej diya ek aur hero type agent”
But this time he is armed with not only with the usual metal muscles, steely reserve, a saviour complex, and dialogue-baazi, but also a man bun.
The heavy burden of India’s existential quest is on the gym-rehearsed shoulders of Vidyut Jammwal, playing Karan Singh Dogra.
Aided by two agents played by Adah Sharma and Angira Dhar, he is on a mission to take down Gulshan Devaiah’s villainy. Note here that the villainy very much involves pitting Indian Muslims against India. So Karan is not only fighting to save India but uphold, cinematically at least, the notion that Indian Muslims is a hyphenated identity with no contradiction. Patronizing or patriotic?
Directed by Aditya Datt, the film releases on November 29.
