Sooraj Pancholi starrer Satellite Shankar hit the theatres today on November 8. The film is directed by Irfan Kamal and is based on the life of an Indian soldier. The film has a box office clash with Bala and Ayushmann Khurrana starrer gave a tough competition to the film. The action drama film also features Megha Akash, Upendra Limaye, Anil K Reji, and others. Superstar Salman Khan also appeared in the film making a special appearance.
Talking about the film, it showcases Aditya as an army officer and the struggles he has to go through being a soldier. The movie is patriotic and gives a feeling that many films have been merged into one. The film is 2 hours and 20 minutes long and makers could have made the narrative more strong. The movie is also quite emotional due to which it comes boring to watch.
Director fails to match up to the high expectations and with the strong title of the film the movie does not match. The film is a mixture of Jab We Met, Chennai Express and Forest Grump. Aditya starrer shows his journey as a soldier named KPG Shankar who believes connections can be made anytime and anywhere with your heart. Later, in the film, Aditya goes to see his mother and dealt with many difficulties to finally meet her.
In the film, Pramila is seen as Aditya’s love interest who he wants to marry. She plays a major role in his life. Makers tried their best to keep up with the storyline but have made it too emotional and overdramatic. Satellite Shankar is all about the life of a soldier and how he gives his entire life to his country and keeps their interests second. Dialogues of the film are not very extraordinary and the movie is quite lengthy. The film has got mixed reviews from fans and 2 out of 5 stars from film critics. Which movie will you go to for Bala or Satellite Shankar?
