Sikandar - Movie Review

A small film with a heart
By Aparajita Ghosh

A film with a heart but not enough meat to make its story plausible, ‘Sikandar’ suffers primarily because of the loopholes in the story. The climax is just not credible and the way the story is conveniently concluded and the protagonists absolved in the end works to the film’s disadvantage. Adding to the film’s weaknesses is its mediocre background score that takes away from the film’s visual beauty.

However, a special mention needs to be made of the stunning cinematography by Somak Mukherjee and lilting tunes by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Performances by Parzan Dastur and Ayesha Kapoor are fine at places, but still leave a lot to be desired. Newcomer Arunoday Singh is promising and Madhavan impressive. Sanjay Suri also lives up to his record.

Despite the shortcomings, ‘Sikandar’ has its heart in the right place. It gives the message that peace cannot be had through the barrel of a gun. The message, however, doesn’t come across as convincingly as it should have.

Rating: **1/2
