Ghoomer: Delving into the Vibrancy

The spotlight falls on Anina, played by Saiyami Kher, an aspiring athlete with ambitions to join the Indian Cricket Team. 

The plot thickens when Abhishek Bachchan’s character, Padam Singh Sodhi, a cocky, failed cricketer, enters her life dramatically altering her journey. 

The narrative is mostly overshadowed by the journey of this failed cricketer turned coach rather than the athlete herself. The focus on Abhishek’s storyline may intrigue some, but for others, it’s a detraction from the original essence of the movie. 

Cinematography & Script: Revisited or Redefinition

The screenplay of Ghoomer seems to borrow heavily from past success stories. The script, also worked on by R Balki, incorporates elements from Lafangey Parindey & Iqbal. Is this amalgamation adding to the vibrancy of the movie or only fuelling a sense of déjà vu?

Ghoomer promised a vibrant exploration of cricket with many expected some out-of-the-box shots and thrilling moments. Unfortunately, the movie falls short on this promise, with the cricket scenes being ultra-slow-paced, hindering the thrill.

Stars’ Performance: Radiating Brilliance

When we delve into the actors’ performances, Saiyami Kher shines through and shows growth as a performer continuing to push her limits.

Abhishek Bachchan stays authentic to his role, delivering a commendable performance. Shabana Azmi, though great, is side-lined by her unidimensional character, and it’s a similar story for Angad Bedi.

Amitabh Bachchan makes a cameo that is jarring rather than memorable, a surprise given his seasoned experience. 

The Soundtrack 

The soundtrack, just like the film, offers a mixed bag. Amit Trivedi’s title track does have a catchy hook, but the unimpressive visuals might take away its essence. 

the track Purnaviram stands out, but that’s all there is to mention. 

Ghoomer: The Final Verdict

All in all, Ghoomer seems to spin around the conventionally inspiring sports-movies without adding a unique flavor to it. It delivers a performance, but can it be termed as exceptional? With a two-and-a-half star rating, Ghoomer lacks the vibrancy it promised.

Ghoomer might bask in the glow of the performances, but the narrative fails to match up, making it a forgettable watch.
