Salaar Movie Review

An average entertainer that shines through its action sequences!

Story & Narration
Technical Aspects & Music

For the fourth time in a row, Prashant Neel has brought us back into the same world, and has tried to tell a similar story set in his own fictitious world. Salaar is his latest and though it seems to belong to the same world of KGF, it has its differences in the storyline.

Salaar is based on the fictional land of Khansaar, a land which has been wiped out of the map of India but still continues to function with its own rules and regulations. As problems rise there, a man who left the land in his early days slowly finds his way back. The core of the film is on the friendship between its two main characters in Prabhas and Prithviraj, but the drama built around them through the long list of supporting artists hardly catches our attention. The film only picks up the adrenaline when it starts off with its action sequences, with two big scenes in the first half and two in the second.

It is safe to say that Salaar is one of Prabhas’ better films in the recent past but the actor’s performance is still very stiff and normal. Prithviraj is efficient and has many good scenes to play with, with many other supporting artists in the picture but none of them actually making much of a mark.

Ravi Basrur who was a big backbone to the KGF series hardly contributes anything good here. Technically, the film is just decent and doesn’t have much to talk about.

On the whole, Salaar is a middling action thriller lit up by its action scenes and nothing else.

Salaar Movie Review Rating: 3/5
