Movie: Super 30 

Super 30 Director: Vikas Bahl 

Super 30 Cast: Hrithik Roshan, Mrunal Thakur

 

Super 30 Movie Stars: 3/5

One of the most awaited films of the year, Super 30, stands true with the maker’s belief of the triumph of spirit. Essaying the role of real-life teacher, Anand Kumar, in Super 30, Hrithik Roshan has steers the movie imbibing the soul in his character. Hrithik reprises the role of a Mathematician, Anand Kumar, who trains students for IIT-JEE in Bihar.

Interestingly, set in the 90s, the story also exposes the audience to realise there is a huge transformation in Hrithik as an actor who debuted as a heartthrob in the 90s.
The whole cast has shown conviction in the script, and it comes across effortlessly for most of them. While Hrithik has done a commendable job, there are parts where it is conspicuous that the actor had to put in efforts to adopt the dialect and mannerism of Anand Kumar. Then, there are scenes where you miss the Greek-god; he looks nothing but Anand Kumar. Undoubtedly, there is evidence of the hard work put in. Hrithik will surely impress many with his efficiency to get into the skin of any character he picks up – the hapless character, the firmness with which he takes decisions, the tears of joy after the victory. All these make a genuine attempt to convince the viewer that he is no less than a common man. 

Mrunal Thakur has a small but critical role. Virendra Saxena impresses once again as an emotional father who has big dreams for his sons. His dialogue, Raja ka beta Rajanahibanega, jo hakdaar hoga woh banega, is the soul of the film. Nandish Singh as Pranav Kumar (Anand Kumar's brother) is unrecognizable in his new avatar. He is good and impressive in parts. Pankaj Tripathi continues to outdo his counterparts whenever he takes the screen space. His presence is infectious, making it difficult for any distraction to slip in the scene. Aditya Srivastav’s character as an antagonist is a refreshing change from his image as an actor best known for being a CID officer.

The film has a very strong message that stands tall against nepotism, and claims education is no more the right of the rich. Vikas Bahl, who faced challenges after the #MeToo controversy later got the credits, manages to evoke emotions with few scenes in the film. The production team has gone a little overboard to bring in the rural touch. Vikas makes you empathise for the characters but fails to resist making it ‘filmy’ in many parts. The creative liberty is surely a prerogative, but the attempt to make one man taking on all villains is fit for a Bollywood drama and not something for a story inspired by true events.

In brevity: Super 30 is a story of triumph that is well-narrated but bucks down a bit for entertaining the audience with a tint of avoidable Bollywood drama.
