Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Liger story is average and there are hardly any moments that make you emotional or give goosebumps. The writings and dialogues could have been better. Talking about the performances, Vijay Deverakonda tries his best in terms of body shape and performances. I liked the attitude of Liger and somewhere I liked his performance too. I think the direction could have been better in the first half. The second half is still ok. The background music is good but the songs are not at all memorable one. The production value of this film is high and that looks visible in every scene. Still, I fell the audience will fail to connect with this movie due to less emotions and drama. Ananya Pandey is just like a filler in the story and this film could have been much better without her. Though, it’s a massy film and certainly a one time watch film for the audience. If this film would have been rooted with more drama and emotions than it would have been a big seller among the family audience. I don’t remember a single song from this film and there are many scenes which are just forgettable. I only want to praise the action scenes which is best in terms of Hollywood Level.
Liger movie has story writing, dialogues and direction done by Puri Jagannadh. It have been produced by Karan Johar, Puri Jagannadh, Charmme Kaur, Apoorva Mehta, Hiroo Yash Johar. The background musical score has been given by Sunil Kashyap and the cinematography done by Vishnu Sarma. The editing work has been done by Junaid Siddiqui.
Altogether, Liger is surely a one time watch film but don’t expect much from the movie in terms of story, direction or music.
Liger movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet but it could reportedly being around 100 Crores maximum.
Last Word: Watch Liger Only for Vijay Deverakonda and his performance. Also watch if you like masala movies with average stories. It’s better to watch Salman Khan’s Sultan (2016) movie at home twice. Also watch this film if you like Mike Tyson at the end.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Liger Review- Average (50 percent out of 100).
