Movie review - Waarrior Savitri

Movie review Waarrior Savitri pardesi news 1473959816

Movie Warrior Savitri is based on the mythological story of Savitri and Satyavan and reflects how love and devotion can change the destiny and fate. But the movie lacks appeal, and just slogs with forced action.

A contemporary adaptation of Hindu mythological tale of Satyavan and Savitri (found in Mahabharata), the film revolves around Savitri (Niharica Raizada), a loyal and devoted wife, who can go to any extent to save her husband Satya (Rajat Barmecha) from the clutches of death, even if it requires her to negotiate with Yama (Om Puri plays the God of death, the Yamraj).   

Niharica Raizada, is the granddaughter of renowned music director O. P. Nayyar. Shammi Kapoor's son Aditya Raj Kapoor plays Savitri's father and Gulshan Grover as Satya's blind dad. Panditji, who according to the Mahabharat was Narad Muni is played by Karamveer Chaudhari. The movie Director is Param Gill.

The Story, screenplay, characterization, set up and action sequences are all well-crafted, with impressive aerial shots of the Rajasthan’s city Jodhpur. The first half takes quick pace, while the second half slogs with forced action. Actoress  Niharica Raizada fits the bill and pulls off the action scenes with conviction. The women empowerment message stands out as well. However, the execution and editing, is choppy.  Scenes look disjointed with no proper connect with each other. The location and plots resemble unrealistic which gives an appearance like a theatrical fantasy. Songs, too are pointless, the music is loud and shaking which do not match with it. The elongated love scenes are also awkward, since there is no chemistry between the lead actors.  Therefore, this modern-day adaptation of Savitri and Satyavan pitted against Yamraj is a snooze fest.
