Ram Setu Movie Review: Concept is good but Story telling is Worst

Rate this post

Akshay Kumar’s latest film Ram setu is a pedestrian experience, and cobbled together in an even more pedestrian fashion, which is like interested only in hammering home its message.

Ram Setu Movie Review

Myth, religion, reality, belief: ‘Ram Setu’ movie takes all these elements, gives them a good shake, letting them settle where like they will, and presents yet another Akshay Kumar film strictly that is embedded in the times we live in. Dr Aryan Kulshrestha (Akshay Kumar) is an archeologist that who worships evidence-based science, and also has no time for anyone, including his dear spouse that is (Nushrratt Bharuccha), a professor of literature, that who is arrayed on the side of the ‘vishwaas’ or ‘aastha’.

The film’s consultant, that is Chandra Prakash Dwivedi, directed Akshay Kumar in the recent ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ movie, another ‘historical’, that which is in line with the Mera Bharat and Always Mahaan mission. In this one, that the mythical waterway between India and Sri Lanka, country re-named Adam’s Bridge by the British and who wanted to ‘erase’ India’s history, is Ram Setu.

The internationally renowned, and globe-trotting Aryan, that who has been heartbroken by the destruction of the like Bamyan Budhhas by the Taliban and (he just happens to be on site in Afghanistan when the mayhem takes place, see), is the lured on-board the Ram Setu project by a profiteering magnate that is (Nassar). Aryan has atheist,and secular credentials, which includes, the imagine, a Pakistani colleague, and so who better than him (Aryan) to convince to the unbelievers that Ram Setu, was in the fact, ‘constructed’ during the ‘period’ of the Lord Rama?

It’s all very like Amar Chitra Katha-cum-‘Indian Jones’ and without the story-telling skills. The screenplay wanders haphazardly over the land, mountain and ocean, in the order to fulfil its quest: finding the requisite ‘proof’, that which includes, believe it or faint, the Sanjeevani booti. and Not satisfied with setting up the conflict, and which plays out in the Supreme Court like on the one hand, and on the high seas, and also on the picturesque island of the Sri Lanka on the other,

Ram Setu movie Plot

the plot gives us the bad guys who want the destruction of the Ram Setu, good guy like A P (Satya Dev) who turns up the out of the blue to help the Aryan and his colleagues, scientist Sandra Ribello that is (Jacqueline Fernandez) and also a white person (Piccinato) who is the swiftly dispensed with. As the chief antagonist, Nassar frowns the a lot, and his main like man (Parvesh Rana) chases the everyone with a gun.

There are also some references to the civil war in the Sri Lanka, and Jaffna being a like hot spot. But all these mentions of the current affairs are window dressing, and merely. The intention of the this film is laid out for the everyone to see: the conversion of the secular, and science-minded Aryan into a good believer who convinces the court of the like weight of that belief, and which becomes the only truth.

The emergence of the Aryan, a sacred stone on the his shoulder, from the ocean, and reminiscent of a remarkably similar scene filmed on the Prabhas at the beginning of the ‘Bahubali’, is designed to the silence the naysayers. and Ditto for when he walks, like and another divine figure, on the water. But the proceedings are not much interested in the drawing our attention to any diversity. Don’t be silly.


Actually, done better, and this could have been a film like which posits these opposing view-points, and giving each the pulpit. But this is like nothing but a pedestrian film, and cobbled together in an even more like pedestrian fashion, which is interested only in the hammering home its message. It is also the kind of the film in which a female scientist, having been like dunked in sea water, and also having emerged in a like cave, gives off a very some Raiders Of The Lost Ark feel. With her the pink lipstick intact.
