Drona film review

Comments  Comments [ 15 ]    By Pooja Kabra | 03 October 2008 | 5:35pm

Fantasy films are rare in Bollywood. But, by making a film like ‘Drona’ Goldie Behl has took a courageous step. However, the screen play is a mess. The writers  Jaydeep Sarkar, Rohini Killough and Goldie Behl fails to make an impact by their work..

And what’s more  disappointing is that a lot has been spent on the movie to give it a different look. Everything went on perfect but,the more than story of ‘Drona’ it’s the visual effects that makes it unforgettable. Its like a dining table all set with the best crockery but, no food in it.

Drona is a tale of a boy named Aditya (Abhishek Bachchan) who has never known love and is brought up by a family where all he gets to know is taunts and humiliations. As he grows up enters a evil wizard  Riz Raizada( Kay Kay Menon), an adherent of Asuras. He wishes the secret ‘Amrit’ but, to get it he has to defeat Drona. Now the problem arises is that he is not aware, who is Drona.
A day comes when Aditya and Riz face each other and Riz notices the ‘kada’ in Aditya’s hand and recognizes him as Drona. Knowing this Riz men begin chasing him but, he is saved by Sonia (Priyanka Chopra">Priyanka Chopra) who makes Afitya realize of his true identity –‘Drona’.

Sonia takes Aditya to his birth place where he meets his mother, Queen Jayati (Jaya Bachchan). Here he gets to know more about himself and his family. But, once again Riz army catch up with him and from here begins the Drona’s journey.

Drona  is also high at special effects . Sameer Arya’s cinematography and Tania Behl’s production design is good.Abhishek Bachchan has done a good job. Priyanka is equally good . Kay Kay is not that impressive. Jaya Bachchan’s has been impressive but the only flaw is she has less footage in the movie.
On whole, the movie lacks content. At box-office the movie may get a good response with its opening  but, as the initial days will  pass  its fall is for sure.
