What It Concerns:

On this “Delhi Police Raising Day,” we see the cry for help to put an end to the bombings taking place around the nation’s capital by SP Kabir Malik IPS (Sidharth Malhotra) and his supervisor, Joint CP Vikram Bakshi IPS (Vivek Oberoi). Adhering to the same path as the 26/11 movies and series, Shetty makes sure to keep the story unaltered and support one of the most formulaic programs in OTT history.

What Is Ineffective:

The tale, which was written by Rohit Shetty and his writing team (Sandeep Saket, Anusha Nandakumar, Ayush Trivedi, Vidhi Ghodgaonkar, and Sanchit Bedre), is really a parody of what we have seen many times. The settings are blatantly ‘fake,’ with everything perfectly polished and free of flaws. The poor writing makes the suspense built around a bomb subplot seem empty. A child is holding a bomb because he believes it will explode if he keeps it anywhere. After taking the bomb from him, a senior cop enters and continues the process until the device is defused. Why? Rohit Shetty ought to have studied the bodyguard’s bomb defusing scene, which is among the greatest scenes in terms of properly capturing the anxiety of handling a live explosion.

It appears from the program that Rohit Shetty originally intended for this to be a two-part movie, but he decided to turn it into an OTT show due to financial limitations and the fact that many people wouldn’t have purchased it. At more over four hours long, it is less suspenseful and substantive than two-hour documentaries on the same subject. How about the Delhi Police Force? Alternatively, why not include a legitimate donation from all of the nation’s police units to support the title? Action sequences can seem to be moving at double the pace, but upon closer inspection, it’s often evident that the unusual camera angle was used for effect.

What Functions?

Right now, Shetty is the master at utilizing the sound of a police siren in an original way to create theme music for his productions. The hand-to-hand fighting scenes are the most effective in terms of both storytelling and visuals. Due to the extremely fake atmosphere produced by the show’s sets and the mediocre photography by Girish Kant and Raza Mehta, the large action sequences don’t fully land.

Celebrity Performances:

Because of how brilliantly Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh, and even Akshay Kumar performed in their previous roles as Rohit Shetty’s policeman, Sidharth Malhotra’s portrayal of SP Kabir Malik is ineffective. Simply said, Malhotra’s Kabir is erratic and boring. Nothing he does at any point in time genuinely justifies the entire “Delhi Ka Launda” atmosphere, which seems too false to be true.

It’s fine to have Vivek Oberoi as Joint CP Vikram Bakshi. In one moment, he will speak in a particular baritone, then in the very next, he will speak in his regular voice.

Although their supporting roles suffer from the bad writing of their characters, Sharad Kelkar, Nikitin Dheer, and Mukesh Rishi carry out their duties as directed. As the adversary, Mayyank Taandon communicates more effectively through his performance. The greatest of the group when it comes to acting without being ostentatious is Vaidehi Parshurami.

Final Thoughts:

All in all, if Cirkus represented RS at his lowest point in his favorite genre—slapstick comedy—this similarly degrades his second favorite, action.
