Crakk Movie Review |


critic’s score: 


Siddhu (Vidyut Jammwal) from Mumbai loves doing stunts. He aspires to go to an excessive sports activities match which is held in Europe referred to as Maidaan. His brother Nihal (Ankit Mohan), who attended the identical match, bought killed there however Siddhu doesn’t need to go there for revenge. In his thoughts, his brother, who was an excessive sports activities fanatic, knew the dangers related to the match. It’s solely when he learns the reality about his brother’s loss of life that he completely cracks and begins searching those that had wronged him. 

If solely the storyline of Crakk was this easy. No, they needed to spoil it by throwing in some father-son battle. So, apparently Dev (Arjun Rampal), who’s the reigning champion and runs the match, has some daddy points and desires to take over his father’s (Bijay Anand) empire. Then there’s additionally one other very convoluted plot involving plutonium smuggling. Amy Jackson performs a Polish police inspector named Patricia, who doesn’t need any form of terrorist exercise in her nation and suspects folks behind Maidaan to be the kind of villains who wouldn’t bat an eye fixed promoting a unclean nuke to the best bidder. So Patricia is in search of methods to entice him and entails our hero in it. Nora Fatehi performs an influencer named Alia who’s obsessed with Siddhu and helps him at a vital time. Then, Siddhu Keeps seeing Nihal on the time of want and retains looking for his useless brother’s recommendation. 

The movie suffers from slack writing. The plot doesn’t maintain true in any respect. At occasions you’re questioning if the director has misplaced the script someplace and is taking pictures advert hoc. The greatest query is why are all these excessive sports activities fanatics courting sure loss of life? And, extra importantly, why is the police not shutting down these loss of life matches. They are blatantly being streamed alive and when the entire world is aware of in regards to the location, why do the authorities not take any motion. And why is there an viewers about such stuff within the first place? Do the widespread folks like seeing contestants killed on reside streaming. Our society hasn’t misplaced its bearings by that a lot nonetheless. 

Vidyut is forged as a Mumbai tapori. He speaks like somebody from Teen Batti, or what our movie writers really feel is Teen Batti patios. That makes him sound like Jackie Shroff. So if the makers needed somebody like that, they need to have taken Tiger Shroff. Arjun Rampal is proven to be all types of nasty however simply doesn’t reduce ice as a megalomaniac. 

The solely first rate factor in regards to the movie are the motion scenes. Whether it’s the opening sequences, the place Siddhu reveals off his abilities as a lad who likes to do stunts on native trains, the loss of life race sequence of the bicycle stunts, the motion choreography is world class. But there’s an excessive amount of hole between the set items. For an motion movie, the movie’s tempo is kind of slack. Its sound design and background rating must be labored on as effectively.

Vidyut Jammwal is an effective martial artist and has carried out his stunts effectively, like at all times. Though he falters within the emotional scenes, which aren’t his forte. Arjun Rampal’s superior physique rivals that of Vidyut Jammwal however the poorly-written function doesn’t depart him a lot area to work on. Ankit Mohan impresses because the elder brother in his transient function.

Watch the movie should you’re a hardcore motion junkie. If you want movies having a modicum of story and plot, then Crakk shouldn’t be for you.

critic’s score: 


Story: An adrenaline junkie journeys from Mumbai’s streets to the intense sports activities area in Poland, fueled by a dream: win the championship and honour his late brother. His path is riddled with hazard, a ruthless rival, and a secret threatening to show the competitors lethal.

Opening with Siddharth ‘Siddhu’ Dixit (Vidyut Jammwal) performing electrifying however harmful stunts on a shifting native prepare in Mumbai, Crakk throws you right into a world of high-octane motion. As you hope no teen is impressed to aim such derring-do, the sequence units you up for an edge-of-the-seat experience. Initially, director-writer Aditya Datt delivers that, as Krakow, Poland, turns into the backdrop for Siddhu’s journey, the place he navigates the treacherous excessive sports activities area, Maidaan, not simply to win but additionally honour his brother Nihaal’s (Ankit Mohan) reminiscence.
While the movie delivers visually beautiful motion sequences, Datt, Rehan Khan, and Sarim Momin’s story and screenplay lack depth. Siddhu’s underdog journey, romance with a social media influencer, Alia (Nora Fatehi), predictable clashes with the villain Dev (Arjun Rampal), and camaraderie between the contestants comply with a well-recognized script. Even a subplot involving a cop, Patricia (Amy Jackson), chasing after plutonium smuggling seems like an pointless detour.

Despite the narrative shortcomings, Crakk shines in its motion choreography (by Kerry Gregg) and cinematography (by Mark Hamilton). From gritty Mumbai streets to Mad Max-inspired landscapes, the visuals are fascinating. The movie additionally excels in showcasing daredevil strikes, making you gasp and maintain your breath. Daredevils evading swinging wrecking balls, escaping lethal hounds, and many others., are captured effectively. However, the fixed barrage of stunts can really feel overwhelming, overshadowing the plot.

Vidyut Jammwal is in high form and type as an motion hero. He owns the pulse-pounding sequences and Mumbai slang, although he could not go off as a lower-middle-class man convincingly. Arjun Rampal brings menace to the villainous Dev and will get sufficient alternative to point out off his brawn and stunts. Nora Fatehi is satisfactory in her restricted function, although she has a number of motion sequences that she performs effectively. Ankit Mohan seems to be good and stands his may within the motion division. Amy Jackson delivers a serviceable efficiency.

Crakk: Jeetagaa Toh Jiyegaa delivers on the thrilling motion entrance, providing a refreshing glimpse into the world of utmost sports activities on the massive display screen. However, its reliance on predictable tropes and a considerably underwhelming storyline may depart you wanting extra.
