Bollywood Crazies Opinion: How far you can go in Love is what this film is all about? The start of this film looks impressive but it got dull after 15 to 20 minutes till the first half. The second half starts slow and ends on a decent note. Still, Shiddat movie couldn’t able to evoke the emotion that was needed to such a serious story. Such kind of films have been made in the past and this was nothing new that we can cheer about. Jaggi’s character was a decent one and he did justice with the role. He needs to up his game in picking up films from now on. He did impressed us with his role as Himmat Singh in Gold movie and we are expecting more from him now. The script has lot of loopholes and that’s why it falls flat after the initial thrill. Another major drawback I felt that the screen-time could have been easily trimmed for another 20 to 25 minutes. Visually, I get engaged to somewhat in this film but after something you couldn’t concentrate on the scenes. That simply says that the director couldn’t able to hold audience attention till the very last. A slow stretched Bollywood romantic film that fails to give you the love you were expecting.
Shiddat movie has been directed by Kunal Deshmukh. This film have been written by Dheeraj Rattan, Pooja Surti, and Shridhar Raghavan. It has been produced by Bhushan Kumar and Dinesh Vijan. The cinematography work has been done by Amalendu Chaudhary and the editing work handled by A Sreekar Prasad. The musical score has been given by the Sachin-Jigar duo.
Shiddat movie budget hasn’t been revealed by the makers but it could have been around 8 to 10 crores maximum.
Altogether, Shiddat movie has lost its track and couldn’t able to give the romantic feel it was promising to the audience. A failed attempt at the end!
Last Word: Only watch it for Sunny Kaushal and his earnest performance that is somewhat relatable.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Shiddat Movie Review- FAIL (30 percent out of 100).
