Apurva Movie Review: A Gripping Tale of Survival and Resilience

Spread the love

A sense of urgency is a fundamental component of any survival thriller, and it appears sometimes in this one.

Action, drama, thrills, and criminality are all combined in this road survival film to keep you on the edge of your seat.

The movie is set in the abandoned ruins of a Madhya Pradesh hamlet, where it is possible to vanish completely and there are no signs of life. Here, Apurva (Tara Sutaria) is being kept hostage by a gang of four notorious bandits who are so deadly that they kill people without warning. These offenders include the equally heinous Jugnu (Rajpal Yadav), Sukha (Abhishek Banerjee), Balli (Sumit Gulati), and Chhote (Aaditya Gupta), who never hesitate to pull the gun or smash skulls when they get angry. 

She needs to use both her brain and strength to get out of the terrible situation she’s in. Sutaria, like Anushka Sharma from NH10, is stuck in a place. However, in contrast to that drama, this movie doesn’t shock as much, even if some excellent performances are given.

Although the events provide a terrifying view of the criminals’ immorality, there are a few occasions where it seems like the brutality might have been toned down without losing any of its power. It might feel a little strained at times and overindulgent, but it just makes Apurva’s struggle more intense. The background of the protagonist provides some relief from the carnage, but a stronger track would have improved the plot as a whole. 

Although the story’s ending is predictable, the trip itself is what makes it compelling.

A bit more suspense and intensity were what the movie needed. 

Nikhil Nagesh Bhat, writer-director, and DOP Anshuman Mahaley have crafted a story that will leave you breathless and on the edge of your seat to some extent.

Star Performance

Abhishek Banerjee plays the part with a bold combination of charm and cold-bloodedness.

For Rajpal Yadav, who has unfortunately been cast as a humorous actor, this part is a welcome change of pace.

The main actress got to walk on territory she had never been on before, and two of the actors are well-known for their humorous skills. It is admirable that they made an effort to get outside of their comfort zone.

 Tara Sutaria, abandoning her glamorous work altogether. She appears haunted and damaged in a way that is acceptable for her psychological state. There are several hiding and pursuing sequences. She makes an impression by facing the monsters like a regular girl. In every moment of difficulty, she excels and fully acknowledges her character development.
