Amandeep Ajitpal Singh aka Tariq Ali (Sidharth Malhotra) is an Indian spy who has been living as a tailor in Pakistan for years. His father was accused of treason and he is ready to do anything for his country to remove the same stain. In such a situation, he is given a mission by RAW that he has to locate the nuclear plants of Pakistan and he has to eliminate them. Meanwhile, Nasreen also enters Tariq’s life. Both fall in love and then get married. But Tariq’s second life is also going on simultaneously. To complete his mission, he meets two more Indian spies living in Pakistan. Now together will these three be able to break the dream of nuclear test of Pakistan? Or will he become a martyr in the name of the soil? The whole story revolves around this.
Siddharth Malhotra has done a good job in the role of an Indian spy. He looks tough on screen, as well as has an emotional touch in his expressions. Especially in the action scenes, Siddharth appeared in a different style. Whereas, Rashmika Mandanna is playing the role of a Pakistani girl in the film, who cannot see. His character could have been made stronger, but he has done justice to his character. The pairing of Siddharth and Rashmika looks good. At the same time, Kumud Mishra, Sharib Hashmi, Parmeet Sethi, Ashwat Bhatt, Zakir Hussain leave an impact in supporting characters.
Shantanu Bagchi has come up with the story of Unsung Heroes with this film, which according to him is inspired by true events. Many films have been made on Indian spies, some have been very successful and some have received a lot of praise for their content. In such a situation, Mission Majnu does not serve anything new. It presents the new story in the old style. In this film full of romance, patriotism and action, the director has missed the thrill, which is the most important aspect of a thriller film. Many characters seem to have been left half-baked. There is also a dearth of emotional scenes, while patriotism seems to be drowned out in some parts by the India-Pakistan animosity.
techno and music
The background score of the film is composed by Ketan Sodha. Which is a positive side as there is no attempt to show patriotism through noise in the name of music. The songs of the film are composed by Tanishk Bagchi, Rochak Kohli and Arko, and the lyrics are written by Manoj Muntashir, Shabbir Ahmed and A M Turaz. There are only two songs in the film – Rabba Jandaan and Maati Ko Maa Kehte Hai. Bijitesh’s cinematography is average, while Nitin Baid could also have brought a little more tightness in the editing. The jump is also clearly visible in some scenes, which stings.
Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandanna starrer ‘Mission Majnu’ is the story of an unsung hero brimming with patriotism. The film is strong in some parts, but at the level of the screenplay, a lot of shortcomings also come to the fore. The film is now available for streaming on Netflix, where you can watch it. 2.5 stars for ‘Mission Majnu’ from Filmbeat.
