'A Flying Jatt' Movie Review: A heroic entertainer only for kids

Everything about Tiger Shroff's latest offering 'A Flying Jatt' is perfect, only if the film comes with a motive to entertain kids, who actually do not care much about the plot or logic to enjoy a movie.

'A Flying Jatt' is a story of a boy (Aman) who gets blessed with super powers directly from Waheguru (god) to fight against the odds in the society. What keeps his fight interesting are the elements like martial arts inherited from his father, and mother (Amrita Singh) who comes with a fireball persona.

Inspired by several hit movies like 'Hanuman 2', 'Superman', 'Spiderman' and others, 'A Flying Jatt' has a lot of varieties to offer but none that makes you go 'wow' about it. Except for the villain Raka (Nathan Jones); he is exceptional and gives goosebumps every time with evil scream and devil expressions.

I mentioned 'Hanuman 2' for its ideology in the plot, 'Superman' because of his flying habit and 'Spiderman' due to his love for Kriti (Jacqueline Fernadez) that comes with a hidden identity. And to keep the whole mix desi, Remo D'Souza has added Indian flavors to it: Acrophobia that restricts Aman to take high flights, a loving brother, superhero who follows traffic rules and a costume made by his mother.

With all of that already in the film, how can dance and music stay away from a Remo movie?  'Beat pe booty' and the title track are the groovy numbers synced with the latest trend of the society.

The film is a huge setback in terms of cinematography. A lot of budget saving can be noticed with an ease and that actually puts a lot of pressure on the star cast to make most out of the minimum.

Amrita Singh is loud but funny, Jacqueline is a complete waste or rather say forced character, Gaurav Pandey as Aman's brother adds substantially to the family drama.

Final verdict: The film is a one time watch and will surely enthrall kids. For adults, Nathan Jones and Amrita Singh can be a treat to watch.
