Naam Hai Akira – Movie Review

4.0 Stars (4.0 / 5)

What a brilliant performance by Sonakshi Sinha and Anurag Kashyap! A thriller action movie from Director/Producer A R Murugadoss, as shown in trailer it is all about a girl who grows up in a condition where she trains herself for self-defense and to fight against the odds in the society. Later when she is in college she unwittingly gets into a crime which has been executed by four police officers, lead by the biggest evil in the movie ACP Rane (Anurag Kashyap).

Movie is all about the journey of the girl fighting against brutal criminals along with the power of Police Force. She never felt helpless and fought with bravery and wisdom to overcome the situations. Sonakshi Sinha nailed the character and I believe there is no alternate person for this role other than this macho lady. The action sequences are filmed in such a precision that, even after being larger than life it was actually thrilling and entertaining. In our Hero Oriented film industry, this kind of Heroine oriented, specially action movies are little risky in terms of business. But I appreciate Mr. A R Murugadoss for this awesome, fantastic film and this one proved that our Industry can’t be male oriented anymore.

Movie portrays various evils of our society like acid attacks and how should we react towards those anti-social elements, how should we train our children to be self-reliant for all different situations of life. Konkona Sen Sharma is in the movie narrating the story of Akira and in the character of a crime investigation officer. Atul Kulkarni is in the movie as father of Akira, a teacher to deaf and dumb children. Amit Sadh in supporting role as a friend to Akira did justice to his role. Raai Laxmi is there in the movie in a short role as a high profile prostitute and she is the key person behind all the misery that happened to Akira’s life.

Well it is a must watch to realize Hindi Film Industry is not Male Oriented anymore…
