In kurta pajamas, Sidharth Malhotra plays a Pakistani R&AW agent with Kohl Lim eyes who marries an innocent girl and uses her as cover for a mission to expose a nuclear facility. Mission Majnu boasts a winner’s plot based on patriotism and heroism. It’s emotional, engaging, and exciting. But the experience is marred by too many simple coincidences and non-negligible loopholes. Ahead of Republic Day, director Shantanu Bagchi pays tribute to all the heroes who don’t wear uniforms and sacrifice their lives for their country. This story I’ve written gets bogged down in a few places and doesn’t hit Mission Majnu too hard.
Set in the 70s, the mission Majnu tells the story of Amandeep Ajitpal Singh disguised as Tariq (Sidharth) who is tired of being called the son of a traitor, but now wants to clear his mother’s name. I’m here. He is on a covert mission in Pakistan to expose a nuclear weapons program. He’s joined by two Indian undercover spies brilliantly played by Shalib Hashmi and Kumud Mishra, and it’s their friendship that elevates the film. Like other spy-his thrillers, there’s Love-his angle this time around her blind girlfriend Nasreen (Rashmika Mandanna) knows nothing about her mission. Upon returning to India, the government changed and hopes to mend relations with Pakistan. There’s too much chaos and confusion leading to a familiar climax, but it gives you goosebumps. , is a pretty successful sequence. Special mention is made of the part where Kumud and Shalib’s characters are being targeted.
Sidharth has nothing to complain about and once again tops it off with a compelling on-screen presence. The choice of dialect and the way of expressing emotions are perfect. Rashmika brings some freshness to the film, but there isn’t much to do. Due to the limited number of scenes, she doesn’t expect much from her character moving the story forward.
Sidharth is doing his best, but after earning accolades for portraying an army officer in Shershaah (2021), Mission Majnu’s weak story hampered his performance, which is very disappointing. should not follow a set norm and should behave as normally as possible, but the presence of so many flirtatious dialogues and scenes to establish his character is a headache. Additionally, he landed at the Brigadier General’s residence and attempted to extract information on where Pakistan’s nuclear power plants were located, boarded the Samjawta Express without paperwork or passports, and allegedly robbed a Sikh. I pretend to be a girlfriend and get into a fight. Take the train aboard and eventually manage a clean escape – all of this is a little too much to digest after the point. How x-ray machines emit harmful radiation, how foreigners use British toilets in the 70s, etc. , you will be amazed to see how he takes ideas from these situations and takes one step closer to his mission.
That said, Mission Majnu is an entertaining watch, just watch the hero in the frame and don’t question how things unfold on screen. It has been.
