Story, screenplay and Dialogues.
comedy is weak.
Slow pace of narration, particularly in the second half.
A couple of songs that come at the wrong time and test the patience of the audience.
Tame and predictable ending.
Verdict: Finally, Solo is a decent film that has all the necessary ingredients of a entertainer. The film has a good message and also takes a close look at the family values and relationships. The film could have been better if the director had taken a little more care in the emotional scenes and building up suspense. Solo is an average film.
