AryanAryan : Movie Review

Sohail Khan-starrer Aryan is not just a movie about boxing. It also explores human emotions.

As its tagline states, 'Aryan' is about the UNBREAKABLE spirit of a man not willing to give up. It is the story of a boxer for whom winning is not everything, it is the only thing.




Parallel to boxing, the movie shows relationship between two lovers and the upheavals in their lives after their marriage.

Actor-turned-director Abhishek Kapoor has done a fine job in his directorial debut. Considering the fact that 'Aryan' is his first attempt in filmmaking, he has proved his abilities to establish himself as a director.

Sohail Khan plays Aryan, a boxing champ who is born to fight. Aryan is moulded from tough to tougher by his hard trainer Ranveer Singh (Puneet Issar), who inspires Aryan to win the national championship one day. Aryan's love Neha ( Sneha Ullal ) is his companion and his moral support.

Love takes precedence over boxing and Aryan chooses to settle down with Neha. He puts his dream of winning the nationals on the backburner, hangs up his gloves and decides to be a sports commentator instead.

But life doesn't turn out easy for him. He faces lots of lows in his personal and professional life. The girl who was his support system leaves him and Aryan is completely shattered.

Then, one day his coach encourages him to return to the boxing ring again and fulfill his dreams. But he is not the same Aryan without his love, Neha. As Aryan braces up for the toughest fight of his life, he is determined not to throw in the towel. The climax will give you the answer whether Aryan wins or loses and also whether Neha returns to him?

'Aryan' is a nice combination of sports and emotions. Music of the film is worth humming, especially the track 'Jaaneman' which will rule the hearts of people in love.

Sohail Khan gives a brilliant performance. He handles all the parts beautifully: the fighter, the husband and a frustrated man. Although Sneha Ullal seems to have matured since her acting debut, she still leaves a lot to be desired in her performance.

Puneet Issar has an imposing screen presence. Satish Shah plays his part well. Fardeen Khan is charming in a special appearance.

In a nutshell, 'Aryan' is a decent attempt by a debutant director. It has style, it has emotions, it has fights and a high decibel conclusion to the story. Although the movie is no great shakes, it still leaves a punch.
