Bandobast is Suriya’s 37th film in a career spanning 22 years. Bandobast is a make or break situation for Suriya considering his last few films have been dismal flops. The film is directed by creative director KV Anand with whom Suriya has given films like Veedokkade and Brothers. The film also has Mohan Lal playing a crucial role along with Sayyesha Saigal, Arya, and others.
Here is the LIVE Review of Bandobast:
Myfirstshow Live Review Rating: 2.25/5
Firstly, Bandobast may not work commercially. KV Anand touched a good topic which will relate to several political issues going on in the country. But people may not enjoy such films on screen. Moreover, there are no commercial values and further, the film loses steam towards the Climax in the second half. Suriya is dashing in his NSG attire, has given his best in terms of performance but yet again we have to say, this man deserves better. For now, he may face another failure. Arya gets a decent character and Sayyesha fits the bill. Mohanlal’s Screen Presence is great.
8:21 AM: Boman Irani and Chirag Jani get killed by Suriya in the Bomb they planted themselves. THE END. The Second Half starts well but drops. The climax falls flat.
8:03 AM: PM Arya knows about Boman Irani being the reason for his father’s assassination and starts shutting down his industries. Boman tries to take revenge by spreading the pests which kill crops. The pests are being sent in a Goods Train and Suriya blasts the train to kill them.
