Ganapath (2023) Movie Review

Tiger fighting. Tiger dancing. Tiger Shroff's flicks depend heavily upon these two things that he does best, and it’s no surprise that the so-called plot in ‘Ganapath’ necessarily includes one set piece after another, with everything else, and everyone else biding their time for their bit.

What comes as a surprise is just how terrible this film is, with practically no redeeming feature in its nearly two-and-a-half-hour run-time. The Fighting-Dancing Tiger, chest gleaming and bronzed, working hard both in the ring and the dance floor, can’t do a thing to stop our eyes from glazing over from this relentless rinse-and-repeat.

The film is set in the kind of future that dystopian Hollywood films keep showing us, where bombed-out shelters containing poverty-stricken folk are prey, and the super-rich, in their flowing capes, are predators. A mention of ‘Mad Max Fury’ is thrown out, even as Ganapath gets ready to wade into yet another fight sequence. This basically means that the film is bathed in mud-brown colors, both in landscape and costumes, for the large part: it becomes psychedelic when it moves to the city with its skyscrapers and fancy clubs, the only kind of locations there seem to exist, using some of the most inept computer graphics we’ve seen.

So, of course, our hero has to have a coming-of-age track, as he has no idea of who he really is, and his journey, which includes fast cars, slick girls, and a couple of smirking mentors (Jameel Khan and Girish Kulkarni), takes him to a vast, arid landscape where he meets a mysterious guru (Rahman) and a kohl-eyed girl (Sanon) who can keep up her end in a fight. There’s also a backstory in which Ganapath’s sage grandpa (Bachchan) prophesies about a savior who will save his people from perdition. And there’s a blue-eyed villain (Bakri) who’s always dressed in black; occasionally, there’s mention of a super-villain, who is kept as a reveal for the end.
