Vidyut Jammwal, along with Tiger Shroff, is one of the few true-blue action heroes in the Hindi film industry. The kind of stunts the actor manages to pull off with effortless ease are the kind most actors would not dare to perform on their own. After playing the antagonist in Telugu and Tamil films like ‘Shakti’ (2011), ‘Oosaravelli’ (2011), ‘Billa II’ (2012) and the Hindi film ‘Force’ (2011), Vidyut made his debut as a leading man with ‘Commando’ (2013). The film was a decent success and the makers followed it up with a sequel ‘Commando 2’ which released four years later. Even though ‘Commando 2’ was not a huge success, just like its predecessor it was a huge hit on satellite. That must have prompted the makers to come up with another film in the franchise.
While ‘Commando’ was set in India, ‘Commando 2’ was mostly shot on foreign shores in a bid to give an international look to the film. ‘Commando 3’ follows suit as, going by the trailer, a large part of the film has been shot in London. The trailer has everything you expect from it – high octane action, dialoguebaazi and as is the case with most action films/thrillers these days, a healthy dose of patriotic fervour. Vidyut is in good form, as always and gives one a glimpse of the death-defying stunts one will see him perform in the film.
The highlight, however, is Gulshan Devaiah who is seen in an out-and-out villainous avatar here. The actor seems to be playing a baddie who uses his brains more than his brawns to execute his plans. Though the actor was seen playing a negative role in Vasan Bala’s ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota’ earlier this year, this is a different avatar altogether. His menacing act is expected to provide an edge to the narrative.
