Siddharth Last Movie Review: A Gentleman: Full Masala but No Taste
Story of the Film
The story begins with writer Vikram Sethi (Siddharth Malhotra). Vikram comes to Mumbai from UK to launch its novel. Meanwhile, Vikram’s wife, Katrine (Kimberly Louisa Macbeth) dies in a night. On the other hand, the same night, Maya (Sonakshi Sinha)’s Husband, who is a lawyer, also dies. Death of both of them is not natural and it is said murder. The doubt about the murder of Vikram and Maya’s partner goes to both of them. But both of them refused to accept it clearly. Both have a different story to tell the police officer Dev (Akshaye Khanna). Both try to prove that they have not done this blood. Maya accuses on Vikrama that he entered in her house forcibly. While, Vikrama tells that Maya’s behavior was very friendly with her. According to Vikram, his car gets accident, due to which he reaches Maya for only help.
Will God find the truth and Dev catch the murderer? Who is telling the truth Maya or Vikram? If these two did not kill the blood, then who has done this double murder? To know the truth, you have to watch the film.
The film’s direction and camera work is good. The story of the film is very similar to the movie ‘Ittefaq’ in 1969. The film’s speed is very slow. There is also a lack of filming. The surprised elements that have been shown in the film could be made more interesting. However, by the end of the film, the viewer is forced to think about who is the murderer. Those who have seen the oldest coincidence, they will know what is the story of the film.
The performance of Siddharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha could have been better. Siddhartha has performed much better in his earlier films. Both of them did not get to see the stoppage in acting. While, Akshay Khanna has acted in the role of Police Officer and played a very strong role. In the case of acting, Akshay played a much better acting than Siddharth and Sonakshi.
There is no single song in the film. Its background music is good
