Director– Nagraj Popatrao Manjule
Series– Hindi, Sports, Drama, Biography
Rating– 3.5 / 5

Director Nagraj Manjule, who has won National Awards for films like ‘Pistulya’ and ‘Sairat’, has released the story of a real life ‘superhero’ after many years of hard work. This is the story of Vijay Barseni, a resident of Nagpur and a retired sports teacher. Who devoted his entire life to improving the future of the Dalit and poor children living in the slums. The story of this ‘superhero’ has been realized on screen by cinema superhero Amitabh Bachchan. For two years, Nagraj Manjule worked on this script, did research and gathered information about Vijay Barse’s life and created a ‘herd’. The film manages to entertain as well as inform the bitter reality of the society.

The story

The film begins with the filthy streets of the slums and the drunken youth. One day Vijay Borade (Amitabh Bachchan) sees the slum children playing football from a box in the ground and recognizes their talents. Initially Vijay Borade prepares these children to play by giving money and gradually changed the lives of these children with education and love. The director has tried to portray this true story of victory, struggle and hard work in his film.

‘Jumping the wall is strictly forbidden’, this sentence written on the wall of the sports college has been filmed with utmost sincerity. The wall has a college on one side and a slum on the other. This wall has been used as a symbol in many films. It separates the two societies of India and also shows faults and contradictions.

The fact of Dalit families and youth living in slums is disturbing. These scenes bring the film to life. At the same time, Amitabh Bachchan’s strong acting also breathes life into the film. On the one hand, seeing the condition of the poor and dalits makes the heart cry, on the other hand, sometimes this film also shows funny scenes to the viewers. If this film, which is more than two and a half hours long, had been shortened a little, it would have proved to be accurate.


In the first half the film leaves a mild impression and in the second half it picks up speed and connects the audience by raising the issue strongly. There was a lot of hope from this film due to the direction of Nagraj Popatrao Manjule. The theme of the film is tremendous but the director did not live up to the expectations of the audience this time. Nagajar Manjule has handled the story, screenplay, dialogues and direction of the film but something seems to be missing due to poor dialogue. In the climax of the film, Big B gives a speech with his powerful voice and powerful expressions but his efforts seem to be in vain as there is no breath in the dialogue.

Movie Review- Gangubai Kathiyawadi


Viewers loved Amitabh Bachchan’s fictional dialogue and character with ‘Vijay Dinanath Chauhan’. But this time he is in the role of the real hero of the society ‘Vijay Barse’. Big B is freezing as a sports teacher and coach. Apart from Amitabh Bachchan, the responsibility of the film was on the shoulders of his ‘crowd’. Even those children have played their roles well. They are the lifeblood of the film. From Babu to Ankush (Don) all the boys have played the role of children living in slums very well. The film also shows Vijay Barse’s family but does not give special importance.

Technical party

The weak part of the film seems to be its screenplay. If the writing of the film had been done better, it could have been considered above average. Attempts have been made to strengthen the dialogue of the film. Heavy-heavy words have been used but they do not seem to fit. Sudhakar Reddy Yakanti, who has done cinematography in the film ‘Sairat’, has also acted in this film, he has done a very good job on his own. There are solo songs in the film which do not leave a special impression.

Why watch

You can easily learn the whole journey of Vijay Barse, the founder of NGO Slum Soccer, in just two and a half hours. The film will not disappoint in terms of knowledge. If you are a fan of Amitabh Bachchan then you should definitely watch this movie as he is one of the coolest characters he has ever played. The only downside to this film is that the subject matter has not been as brilliantly portrayed on the screen.
