Roar Movie Review: Shockingly Awful


Cast: Abhinav Shukla, Himarsha, Subrat Dutta, Virendra Singh Ghuman, Ali Quli Mirza
Director: Kamal Sadanah

Roar is a fictional feature film on Tigers of Sunderbans which has been written and directed by Kamal Sadanah. For those of you who do not know him, he is the famous son of producer Brij who killed himself after shooting his wife and sister. Kamal debuted alongside Kajol but it was disastrous film, after which he had a hit film with Divya Bharti owing to her death few days before release.

This is not the first movie of this flop actor, his first film never released. So what kind of movie would a guy like this make? Someone who has not had one good film to his credit? A boring one.

Close friend Salman Khan gave him all the push he could give by launching the first look of the film. Coming to the film in question, all I can say is that it has no roar factor in the movie.


A wildlife photographer goes to the Sunderbans, where he rescues a small white tiger cub and ends up getting killed by the tigress. His brother Pandit (Abhinav Shukla) is a commando by profession and decides to take a trip into the Sunderbans to avenge the death of his brother.

Joining him is gang of good looking men and women dressed in hot army outfits. Will he be able to kill the tigress is the question the movie answers.

The surprise factor is that the entire gang takes such a huge amount of arms and ammunition that they can blow of the entire jungle, yet they are not able to kill the tiger. They get helpless in the homeland of these wild creatures.

Performance wise, no one is worthy to get a special mention, may be the white tigress, for she was the most majestic beauty in the film who gave the best performance. Not condemning any other actual actors in the film, as the tiger really does shine when it makes an appearance in the film.

The story line seems a little too fancy with some illogical scenes, but after all it is a Bollywood movie. What makes Roar a worth watch would be the cinematography, imagine using a high quality camera they are showing the most beautiful aspects of the Sunderbans, the wild creatures living there and the beauty of the picturesque nature.


Visually the film is good and is based on a nice concept, so for those who like logic less Bollywood movies, this movie is worth the try. If not, then  I would suggest you opt for another movie.

Reason For All The Cast Dressed Skimpy
