Drona has been described as a Harry Potter meets Indiana Jones movie, but with an original story. But was not true when I met with the truth. Except the part that it has a original story.
The movie did not have a proper screen play. No one could say which category the movie belong to, is it a movie for the kids, is it a action movie, is t a family drama or a love based. It started with high expectations, the camera movement, make-up and the lighting all said that it is going to be a movie filled with a super hero fantasy, I was thrilled. But the story started to move, and there was a suspicious Yellow car roaming around. Fine with a car of this sort the person inside the car must be loaded with all the modern weapons. And the truth unveils when Priyanka Chopra gets down from the car with a Ancient Kalari style weapon. 'I was expecting a high power machine gun'.
Fine, I was let down, but let the movie go with the same feel. Again I was let down, the scene opened in a desert. Where AB meets Jaya Bachan, the queen of a kingdom. ???I thought the movie runs in modern time, where did this queen come from??? And it movie turned to be a family drama with few tears shed. But this should be a action packed super hero movie. And where is the action? Where is the famous Drona sword I was in the posters and how about some transportation(White horse). These questions were unveiled later in the movie. BUT I WANT SUPER HERO ACTION.
In the due course the only positive is some good graphics and Priyanka Chopra. And there was a horse stunt which reminded me of our Chiru horse stunt
and Balaya bike stunt
. Another let down.
Finally the story need to end, and you know the bad guys die and good guys live happily for ever.
And to answer the question : Which category this movie belong to? It is a movie with a confused screen play with something for everyone from 6 to 60. But not enough to call it worthy.
