Runway 34 Movie Review: Script Analysis
The film is heavily influenced by Tom Hanks’ Sully and Denzel Washington’s Flight. Sandeep Kewlani & Aamil Keeyan Khan’s tale starts on a high-energy note.
Apart from the forced backstories of some passengers on the flight, the first half’s safe landing aspect includes several thrilling sequences (one I adored the most was when Rakul’s Tanya freezes when she realizes their landing could be a risky situation).
The second half produces turbulence within the narrative. The courtroom sequences that were intended to be the story’s heartbeat turn out to be incredibly generic.
The film ends quickly, leaving everyone with Amitabh Bachchan confused with his “shudh Hindi argument and other rants which aren’t as well-crafted as Pink, Badla, Section 375, or Mulk.
Aseem Bajaj’s camerawork gets used in the beginning (owing to the poor story structure), where he executes various cool tricks before the landing sequence.
The film’s structure made me think what the reason was for not mixing the court scenes with the flight sequences to maintain a balanced balance? Why do you show your cards this fast and then fold, losing?
Runway 34 Movie Review: Star Performance
Ajay Devgn’s work as a director fails Ajay’s acting because somewhere between doing both and letting down the actor within the actor in him. Being a highly unidimensional character, There’s not much that Ajay’s Vikrant does in the film aside from being arrogant. The emotion is portrayed as forced because of poor writing.
Amitabh Bachchan is in the second part to keep doing something similar to Badla (and maybe Pink somehow). We’ve all seen better versions of the standard baritone-heavy dialogues in the shudh Hindi.
Rakul Preet has remained the most humane of characters among all the other characters. While her character doesn’t have any input in changing the story, she does her best to be exceptionally well in every role.
Boman Irani Angira Dhar and Aakanksha Singh are all wasted. And what FU*K is Carry doing? As a massive enthusiast of Ajey Nagar’s earlier work, This is a shambles that I would not want to watch.
Having Nagar appear precisely the same on-screen as he is in front of the camera doesn’t work. He speaks in the same way as he has in his video. However, it doesn’t work on any level. However, if he thinks this will enhance his profile, it will not!
Runway 34 Movie Review: Direction, Music
I have a lot of admiration for Ajay Devgn for continuing to try to make films. Still, he’s not receiving the proper direction at the moment. He’ll create a masterpiece one day, but it’s not today.
Sully is a far superior product. He could handle the tension of landing due to the terrain Tom’s character had to land on water. However, in this case, the rainy days, which were an obstacle, didn’t result in an identical feeling of jitters or impact because we all knew that the pilot was likely to land his flight safely. This swayed Ajay’s direction and made it average at the highest level.
The film has only one song sung by Jasleen Royal, and it’s the highlight of the movie for me. The timing of ‘The Fall song is impressive, and a lot of credit to Jasleen Royal.
Runway 34: Movie Review The Final Word
After all, Runway 34 could’ve been an instant success had it not fallen into the trap of being inspired by films. It would have been better if it had ended in the middle.
