When veteran actors like Sanjay Dutt Jackie Shroff, Manisha Koirala, Chunky Pandey appear on the same poster, it is evident that film lovers are eagerly waiting for that film. This is the story of Baldev Singh, MLA of Ballipur and his family.
The family consists of strongman Baldev Singh (Sanjay Dutt), his wife Saroj (Manisha Koirala), his son Ayush (Ali Fazal) and younger son Vivaan (Satyajit Dubey). Saroj is the power center of the family. Even Baldev Singh himself cannot avoid it. Elder son Ayush is a supporter of moral values. Also quite popular is the younger son Marriage Bad Raisjada. Scramble on a fight, a fight is very common for him!
It is a period of election. The equation of votes, election speeches, settlement of the establishment, all this high voltage political drama is going on simultaneously and between this the family’s mutual tension and tangled relationship is the basic theme of the film Prabandham. The content of director Deva Katta’s film is very interesting but the writing department messed up!
The entire first half went into getting the audience of so many characters. The true story begins after the interval. By then the viewer is bored! Except for the characters of Baldev Singh and Ayush, all the other characters prove to be meaningless in the absence of writing properly. Talking about acting, actors like Sanjay Dutt, Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey, Ali Fazal and Satyadev Dubey have done their justice perfectly, but directors Manisha Koirala, Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey, Amaira Has not done full justice to artists like Dastur. When their characters come, when they leave, they do not understand.
Overall Departure is a simple film. If you are a great fan of Sanjay Dutt and other artists then you can go to see this film. Otherwise wait for next week.
