Performance of Actors
Sonakshi Sinha is brilliant in the role of Akira. She was a true fighter. She shown transformation from a calm and peaceful person to a strong and brave woman. Kudos to her for doing some intense action sequences like that of any other male protagonist. She did a great job from beginning to the end and revealed the actress in her. Anurag kashyap, the lead antagonist of the film is equally amazing. At times, in some scenes he is sure to steal our hearts. The way he has given strong confrontation to the female protagonist is impressive! On the other side, Konkana Sen Sharma does a fine job as a sincere police officer. She played a key role in the film and the way she put a subtle performance on screen deserves appreciations.
All the other actors have given their best and made their presence felt.
Tecnical Team Performance
The production values of AR Murugadoss & Fox Star Studios are grand. The dialogues by Karan Singh Rathore are simple and effective. The screenplay has its ups and downs. At times we may feel that the momentum is getting down but finally, the film gets on track at right situations. Additional Screenplay has been penned by AR Murugadoss and the film had original screenplay by Santha Kumar who provided the story. The film has an interesting story. Its actually a difficult task to execute it in a successful manner but the director Muragadoss does it in a perfect way.
The film is Based on Tamil film Mouna Guru. The audio album scored by Vishal–Shekhar is good. The Background Score scored by John Stewart Eduri is good but it could be much more effective especially in some crucial scenes of the second half. The Cinematography by R. D. Rajasekhar is great. Editing by A. Sreekar Prasad is fine.
‘KORADA’ Take On Akira
Akira is a brilliant film. The film is actually a remake of Tamil film Mouna Guru. In the original, the film had the male protagonist. The entire film will be having the male lead in center who fights out to overcome the troubles. The film which was made into Telugu as Shankar is also the same. In both the South Indian language versions, the film has a male actor leading the film. But Muragadoss has taken it as a challenge to implement Gender Reversal concept and adopted the behaviour of that lead actor to Sonakshi’s characterization. Sonakshi plays the leading lady who leads the film forward.
In the process, there are so many restrictions in projecting Sonakshi’s role so strong but avoiding all those things, Muragadoss has shown Sonakshi in an amazing manner. Sonakshi also lived in the role of Akira. Muragadoss has developed the entire plot in an interesting manner and completely gave a fresh look to this remake. The way he directed some scenes proves his mark and involves us into the film in an intriguing way. Akira is definitely one amazing film that was dedicated to all the women who fight back with a lot of courage. This is a not to be missed film. In simple words, Akira is Amazing, Brilliant and Beautiful
Slow First Half
