Vidyut Jamwal made a smashing debut in Bollywood with his negative role in the 2011 action entertainer ‘Force’ where he held his own against the film’s leading man John Abraham. Force went on to be a decent hit apart from making Vidyut an overnight star. He also went on to win all the major debutante awards last year and earned himself the tag of an ultimate action hero. Vidyut is now debuting as the hero in producer Vipul Shah’s action entertainer ‘Commando’. The movie also stars former Miss India Pooja Chopra and Jaideep Ahlawat of ‘Gangs Of Wasseypur’ fame. The film release today and so let’s read on to see what the film is all about


Karanvir Dogra (Vidyut Jamwal) is a range one commando with the Indian Para military force who is captured by the Chinese government for trespassing into China. He is imprisoned and tortured for more than a year while somewhere in Pathankot, Amrit Kanwal Singh(Jaideep Ahlawat), a deadly criminal in that area wants to marry his cousin Simrit (Pooja Chopra) at any cost.

As time passes by, the Chinese want to take Karan to an unknown location when he escapes and crosses over to India at the Lepcha border in Himachal Pradesh. He heads to towards his base at Pathankot when he runs into Simrit who is on the run from Amrit Kanwal Singh’s goons. Karanvir warns the goons to leave Simrit alone and when they don’t listen to him, he beats them to a pulp.
Unexpectedly, Simrit is far from happy about this and ticks off Karan for adding to her troubles and she forces him to accompany her till she feels safe. The rest of the story is as to how Karnavir saves Simrit form the evil clutches of Amrit Kanwal Singh.

Positive Points:

As the tag line suggests, Commando is surely a one man film which means that it’s a complete Vidyut Jamwal show with almost every scene dominated by him. One can confidently say that Vidyut is the Indian version of Sylvester Stallone and you can’t help but remember films like First blood and Rambo while watching Commando. Vidyut is absolutely amazing in all the action sequences and he also reminds you of the young Akshay Kumar in the early 90′s. Vidyut has the physique, talent and most importantly, he also dances well which is a must for every Hindi film hero.

Jaideep Ahlawat who plays the negative role does an amazing job with his body language, characterization and dialogues suiting the film perfectly. Pooja Chopra looks decent and plays her part well. Commando has some hardcore entertaining action sequences spread across the film. What also helps is the film’s running time which moves at a crisp pace from start to end finish.

Negative Points:

Needless to say, Commando’s story is as old as the hills and there is nothing special about it as it is a good versus evil saga. The sequence showing Vidyut’s escape from China is quite unbelievable and so are the sequences about Vidyut making his way back into India and getting caught up with the heroine. Vidyut looks stiff in some of the scenes and his sequences with Pooja Chopra could have been better. Despite their good looks, the lead pair lacks chemistry and that clearly shows on the screen. The first 15 minutes of the second half tend to get a bit slow and you can easily keep guessing on what happens next throughout the film.

Technical Aspects:

Given that the minimum expectation from a hardcore action film is of some jaw-dropping action sequences, Commando scores highly on this expectation and has some of the best action scenes ever seen in any recent Bollywood film. Lethal hand-to-hand combat fights, amazing stunts and well directed action sequences are in abundance in Commando. The background score is very effective as it elevates the film completely.

The dialogues and the music are OK with director Dilip Ghosh sticking to the tried and tested plot which makes this film a simple watch. The screenplay moves at an even pace while the cinematography captures some stunning locations giving a fresh feel to the film. Though the adaptation is very old school, it’s been quite a while since we have seen such a film in Bollywood.

Final Word:

On the whole, Commando is one film which has some of the best and original action scenes in then recent Hindi films. Watch out for Vidyut Jamwal as he displays some of the best stunts you would have seen in a very long time. Finally, even though Commando reminds you of films like First Blood and Rambo series, this desi version is a must watch for all action movie lovers.
