Being an AR Murugadoss production, it is obvious that the movie is going to put forth some high-quality action. As the movie celebrates its hero, Darbar movie reviews narrate the success of the latest hit by Rajinikanth.
It was already known that the movie will set a failed system of laws that need to be corrected by its hero. Rajinikanth aka Aditya Arunasalam acts as an angry cop who sets out on a rampage to kill the most wanted criminal. The protagonist is established as a top cop who is posted in Mumbai to tackle the widespread drug business. This cop does not go by the rule books and takes the matter in his own hands.
In the course of events, Aditya kills Ajay Malhotra, son of the businessman who is the leading supplier of drugs in the city. Meanwhile, Hari Chopra (Suniel Shetty), a gangster, returns to the city after 27 years to take his revenge and targets Aaditya and his daughter Valli.
Darbar movie reviews suggest that the character of Sunil Shetty was not that engaging. Though he caused a large number of casualties, there was a lack of solid confrontation between the protagonist and antagonist. Even in the climax, things went smooth for Aditya.
Here are Darbar movie reviews by some critics:
“Police stories have been told dime a dozen in Indian cinema and DARBAR again offers nothing new with a dated plot that is formulaic and facetious. But with Rajinikanth playing the cop Murugadoss has the liberty of bamboozling the viewer with an indulgent screenplay helped by the hero’s charismatic presence and definitive mass appeal.”
” In Darbar, thalaivar has donned a new role that we haven’t seen in recent times. Good story/script. Well executed. And of course, the Rajini effect can be felt throughout the movie. Some scenes in the movie will make you awestruck cause at this age, the energy and charisma that he brings in the screen will testify the fact that he is an actor par excellence. Anirudh never fails to deliver. When a die-hard fan is doing the BGM for his idol, nothing more to say. Yogi Babu – thalaivar comedy sequences are also to be appreciated. ” ” Rajinikanth gave one of his best over the top performance glazed with core acting at its best. He proved once again that he is the untouchable star India has been gifted with. Hair raising action scenes. But wow.”
