Abhimanyuis one of the most ambitious projects of
Action King Arjun Sarja. Directing a Kannada movie for the first
time, Arjun Sarja has attempted to amalgamate the social issue of
reforms in education system into an entertainment movie. The actor
had fought the terrorists in the Tamil movie Jai Hind,
here the actor fights the corruption that plagues the education
sector.The actor has simultaneously made
AbhimanyuinTelugu and Tamil and titled it
Jai Hind 2.
Unable to bear the cost of a child's education a poor family
commits suicide. The flashback begins. Abhimanyu (Arjun Sarja) is a
karate instructor. A man with a good heart, he dreams of reforming
the corrupt education system in the country. But the corrupt never
relent easily. He soon realizes that the bringing a paradigm shift
in the education sector is easier dreamt than done.
While the protagonist goes on with his mission, he soon realizes
that the ground underneath is shrinking. Entangled in the web of
evils of corruption and malice, he fights hard to what he feels in
right. Abhimanyu had failed to escape the 'Chakravyuha' in the
timeless epic Mahabharata. The Abhimanyu in the movie however finds
himself in a different kind of a maze. How Abhimanyu escape the
Chakravyuha this time makes up the rest of the story.
Apart from directing and acting in the movie, Arjun Sarja has
written the scrip, screenplay, and the dialogues for the movie. His
success lies in bringing a strong social message to fast paced
entertainment movie. At the age of 52, the actor shows that he is
the real action king of Sandalwood. Actress Surveen
Chawla plays a more sedated character. She brings the emotions
to this testosterone driven action movie.
The first half of the movie has impressed the viewers. The
second half is roller coaster ride as the protagonist goes after
the bad guys responsible for the decaying health of the education
sector. With a good background score and impressive action
sequence, the mass audience will get their money's worth.
Abhimanyuis a movie that will entertain you and leave you pondering about the mess our education system is in. Truly a movie for the mass and the class. Definitely a must watch.
