The much-anticipated Bollywood film “Yodha,” featuring Sidharth Malhotra, Raashii Khanna, Disha Patani, Ronit Roy, and Tanuj Virwani in lead roles, has opened to a mixed response from audiences and critics alike. Directed by Sagar Ambre and Pushkar Ojha, the movie is a collaborative effort between Amazon MGM Studios, Dharma Productions, and Mentor Disciple Entertainment.

Released on March 15, “Yodha” has generated a flurry of reactions from moviegoers, ranging from glowing praise to disappointment.

Positive Reviews:

Several viewers lauded the film’s action scenes, suspenseful plot, and stellar performances, particularly by lead actor Sidharth Malhotra. One user described the movie as “outstanding” and praised Malhotra’s acting prowess. Another hailed “Yodha” as one of the top patriotic films of recent times, drawing comparisons to Malhotra’s previous acclaimed performance in “Shershaah.” Additionally, many commended the film for its captivating interval block, suspense, climax, and unexpected twists, highlighting Malhotra’s terrific performance and brilliant direction.

Critical Feedback:

However, not all viewers were equally impressed. Some labeled the movie as average, citing it as a typical Bollywood film with nothing exceptional to offer. Another reviewer expressed disappointment, deeming “Yodha” a bad choice due to its weak storyline and average acting. Particularly, one viewer criticized the film’s climax, suggesting that the resolution of conflicts by “becoming friends” did not resonate well within the context of the movie’s theme.

Box Office Performance:

Despite the mixed reviews, “Yodha” saw a decent booking nationwide. According to reports, the film secured ₹1.33 crore in bookings across 7,097 screens nationwide. Maharashtra led the bookings with ₹45.33 lakh, followed by Delhi with ₹30.46 lakh. Karnataka, Uttar Pradesh, and Gujarat also reported significant bookings. Notably, the film was reportedly made with a budget of ₹55 crore.

As audiences continue to flock to theaters to experience “Yodha” firsthand, the film’s box office performance and audience reception will be closely monitored in the coming days.

1. A Missed Opportunity for Cinematic Brilliance

In the highly-anticipated film “Sam Bahadur,” director Meghna Gulzar aims to bring the legendary Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw to life, with Vicky Kaushal in the lead role. However, despite the promising elements, the movie falls short of delivering the narrative fireworks and depth needed to elevate it beyond a straightforward retelling.

2. Kaushal’s Charisma Rescues the Character

While the overall impact of the film may miss the mark, Vicky Kaushal’s portrayal of Sam Manekshaw stands out as a commendable performance. In a year where Kaushal faced underwhelming roles, “Sam Bahadur” allowed him to showcase his magic, reminiscent of his outstanding performances in films like “Sardar Udham” and “Raazi.”

3. Emotional Depth Through Supporting Characters

Sanya Malhotra, portraying Sam’s wife Silloo Bode, adds emotional depth to the narrative, complementing Kaushal’s maverick energy with a compelling performance. However, Fatima Sana Shaikh’s portrayal of Indira Gandhi falls short, with casting choices contributing to the unsteady depiction.

4. Musical Missteps and Cinematic Struggles

The film’s musical score, surprising given the talent of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, is criticized as loud, distracting, and unmelodious. Despite effective use of archival footage, the movie grapples with passive linearity and staccato time leaps.

5. Moments of Sweetness Amidst Disjointed Narratives

“Sam Bahadur” finds moments of sweetness and engagement in individual segments depicting Manekshaw’s life, expertly executed by cinematographer Jay I Patel. However, the film’s attempts to weave these segments together often result in a disjointed feel, requiring some slack due to its largely sanguine tone.

6. A Standout Performance in Need of Deeper Exploration

While Vicky Kaushal’s performance remains a standout, “Sam Bahadur” leaves audiences yearning for more cinematic brilliance and a deeper exploration of its central character. Despite its strengths, the film falls short of reaching the heights set by Gulzar’s previous successes.
