There have been a number of documentaries on the Mumbai 26/11 attacks in the past, but Major stands out for its emotional impact. Adivi Sesh wrote the story and script, and he captures the emotion of the soldier’s life perfectly and establishes the tone for the picture.
Major is Sesh’s best performance in his career, since he has lived in the part of Major Sandeep. Sesh’s persona progresses beautifully from schoolboy to young soldier to heroic warrior. This is the first time Sesh has done such large action blocks, and his gorgeous appearance make him a pleasure to watch on television.
Saiee Manjrekar didn’t get much of a chance to show off her talent in Ghani, but she does so in Major and does so admirably. In the first half, she has a significant role, and her chemistry with Sesh is fantastic. Prakash Raj and Revati, who play Sesh’s parents, provide the film a lot of emotional depth.
The second half is packed with racy action, and there are numerous sequences that will leave you feeling ecstatic. The way in which action and patriotism are combined is excellent. Shobita Dhulipala is excellent in her role, and the way her character is related to the conclusion is excellent.
The movie gets off to a slow start. The school sequences and Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s life goal of being a soldier should have been established more clearly.
The opening fifteen minutes of the film are boring, with a couple scenes that are rather predictable. In order to make the film more dramatic, more drama should have been introduced to the husband-wife difficulties.
Overall a really nice patriotic movie with some good clean romance in first half… The movie was definitely my cup of tea….
