Aiyaary Review

Neeraj maintained that 'the DNA of Aiyaary is the point of view of the youth and not corruption or scam,' the commentary that he makes on today's youth who are considered irresponsible and constantly underestimated, lack a strong voice. National security, espionage, corruption, terrorism, scams and the clash of ideologies between two generations- Pandey tries to pack in too many ingredients but is terribly let down by his own feebly writing.

Neeraj Pandey fails to conjure an engaging watch. Instead, he serves you a half-baked plot that just beats around the bush and leaves you apathetic by the time it reaches the finish mark. Those carrying remnants of Neeraj's previous films with them to the cinema hall will be highly disappointed!

‘Aiyaary’ has all the makings of a Neeraj Pandey thriller.

The film could make a far more intriguing watch with a tighter edit devoid of all the dramatized entries and exits. Those expecting the clever Neeraj Pandey twists will be left wanting more. But ‘Aiyaary’ has measured performances that resound louder than its bombastic score, and they alone make it a worthwhile watch.

Aiyaary’s first hour is engaging because it gives us reason to assume that great twists and turns will unfold at any moment. That promise is unfulfilled in the remaining 100 minutes of the film. Pace and bluster cannot compensate for lack of substance. This wannabe James Bond flick is nothing but a blast of hot air.
