Movie Review:

Set in Mumbai, the story unfolds in a hospital that is under siege, where Vivaan Ahuja (Vidyut Jammwal) and his wife Anshika (Rukmini Maitra) are trapped. Does he manage to rescue her and other hostages from the dangerous hoodlums?

The linear narrative of Kanishk Varma’s Sanak is a battle between two opponents that make up the bulk of the proceedings — Vivaan Ahuja, the fit and muscled guy, and Saju (Chandan Roy Sanyal) with his band of skilled fighters who have taken all the people in the hospital as hostages.

This 117-minutes drama, written by Ashish P. Verma, begins slowly by emphasizing the chemistry between the lead couple as they celebrate their third anniversary. But, minutes later, we’re in a siege situation at the hospital, where Anshika is being held captive alongside other people, and Vivaan arrives to save her. The basic plotline is predictable from the word go: the hero will bash up the bad guys to a pulp and save them all. However, there’s a bigger problem here, the narrative defies logic and is not-at-all-convincing at times. In one sequence, a kid in the hospital is able to defuse the bomb (that too in a nanosecond), but the bomb squad is unable to do so. It’s a sheer disappointment for the viewers. Additionally, the soundtrack is a huge letdown with barely two songs that are easily forgettable. Saurabh Bhalerao and Suyash Kelkar’s background score is far more impressive though.

The USP of this film, like those of Jammwal’s previous works, is action. With his power-packed action moves, he is a one-man army attempting to control the situation and save everyone. In comparison to the terrorists, Jammwal has been given a lot of screen time to perform stunts, and he scores in every action scene. All credit goes to Andy Long Nguyen, the action director who is also a trained martial arts fighter; the viewers won’t have time to blink throughout the combat sequences, especially the one in the physiotherapy room. The climactic battle, on the other hand, is underwhelming and should have been better orchestrated.

The leading ladies, Rukmini Maitra as Anshika and Neha Dhupia as inspector Jayati Bhargav, have a limited role to play. They have, however, done so with finesse. Dhupia made a grand entry as a tough cop interrogating a criminal, but, her character arc was sketchily written, and she ended up playing a role of a cop who is merely trying to deal with the situation.

In a negative role, Chandan Roy Sanyal has impressed with his performances in the past, and here too, he looks just as convincing as Saju. He is ruthless, frightening and maniacal without trying too hard. Additionally, he has got some good dialogues to deliver.

Overall, Vidyut Jammwal’s slick kicks, punches and backflips raise the stakes of this action-packed drama. Of course, it’s predictable, but if you’re a die-hard Jammwal fan or like action movies, this is the one for you.
