Sunak – Hope Under Siege Review {2.5/5} & Review Rating

Sunak is the story of a man who is battling an army of people in a hospital. Vivaan Ahuja (Vidyut Jamwal) is happily married to Anshika (Rukmini Maitra). On their third wedding anniversary, they learn that Anshika is suffering from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that can prove fatal if she doesn’t go for immediate surgery. Treatment cost Rs. 70 lakhs and Vivaan sells his flat as he is short of money. His treatment started at Green Hills Multi Specialty Hospital in Mumbai. The surgery is successful and after a few days Anshika is allowed to go home. However, hours before he is discharged, a high-profile patient, Ajay Pal Singh (Kiran Karmarkar), is brought to the hospital. He is an arms dealer who is imprisoned in Arthur Road Jail and taken to the hospital after his pacemaker malfunctioned. Her operation immediately begins on the East Wing of the 9th floor, the same level where Anshika is kept. Vivaan goes to the billing counter on the ground floor to settle the bill. As he reaches the ground floor, he learns that he has forgotten his wallet in the car parked in the basement. Meanwhile, Captain Saju (Chandan Roy Sanyal) and his team, including Raman (Sunil Palwal), Yuri (Daniel Balcony), Taira (Ivy Harrelson), Maxim (Alois Knapps) and Chad (Du Tran Au), arrive at the hospital. Arrive at the basement. Yuri is asked to stay at the parking lot and guard a black bag. The rest of them leave the hospital and attack. The hostages are kept on the ground floor and on the 9th floor. Anshika is one of the hostages. They take over the CCTV room so that they can access the happenings in the hospital and install the jammer. They also dodge all the entrances to the hospital with bombs. That’s why the police can’t go inside. While all this is happening, Vivaan is at the parking lot, completely oblivious to the fact that the hospital is under attack. He hits Yuri but leaves. Yuri learns that he can alert others to his presence. Hence, he tries to kill Vivaan. But Yuri is unaware that Vivaan is a former MMA fighter. Vivaan attacks Yuri and kills him. It becomes clear to him that members of Yuri’s team have taken over the hospital. He opens the black bag and finds weapons and a mysterious device. He takes the bag and decides to fight the baddies. What happens next forms the rest of the film.

Movie Review Sunak - Hope Under Siege

Ashish P Verma has an interesting story and is a great action entertainer. Ashish P Verma’s screenplay is captivating but not coherent. The first half is well carved and some sequences are very well written. Also, the hero vs villain clash over the walkie talkie keeps the audience hooked. However, the second half is inexplicably dragging. Some questions also remain unanswered. The dialogues of Ashish P Verma are dramatic but the dialogues of the romantic scenes are childish.

Kanishk Verma’s direction is neat. He keeps the narrative simple and comprehensive. In fact, Vidyut’s slo-mo walk after killing one villain after another reveals that these scenes were written keeping the single screen audience in mind. This time the action sequences are also new and hence, Vidyut Jammwal’s stunts are being repeated, one would be surprised to realize that. On the other hand, a 116-minute film ideally should have been only 90 minutes long. The second half goes on and this affects the effect of the first half. A Thrilling Moment in the Store Room Sequence Copied from Spider-Man [2002] And it should have been avoided. Some plot points leave the audience bewildered. For example, who intentionally damaged the pacemaker of Ajay Pal Singh was never disclosed. The character of a kid, Zubin (Harminder Singh Alag), is shown to be an expert in guns and weapons, even knowing how to detonate a bomb. The last bit is a bit much. Another major problem with the film is that it has come out without any discussion or awareness. Many are not even aware that a film named Sanak is releasing today. In this case its viewership may be affected.

The first 10-15 minutes of Sanak focus on the romantic track between Vivaan and Anshika. The film sets the mood after Captain Saju enters the hospital and launches an attack. To its credit, the action sequences are well choreographed and do not give scenes from any of Vidyut Jammwal’s previous films. Action scenes in the parking lot, MRI room, physiotherapy room and store room that work long hours. There is a scene to watch when Vivaan’s sugar level drops alarmingly and how he manages to sip milk. Sadly, the film drags on from here and only catches on during the final fight.

Movie Review Sanak Hope Under Siege 2

Vidyut Jammwal is in full form as always. This time the fun of the new stunts performed by him has increased even more. Rukmini Maitra made a confident debut in Bollywood. Despite the focus being on Vidyut, he has enough screen time. Chandan Roy Sanyal is excellent as the antagonist. He goes up a bit but it works for the character. Neha Dhupia (ACP Jayati Bhargava) comes into the role with ease. Chandan Roy (Riyaz Ahmed) is very good as a sidekick. His entry scene makes me laugh a lot. Kiran Karmarkar gets limited scope. Harminder Singh is lovable, though his character defies logic. Among the villains in the team, Saju, Daniel Balcony and Sunil Palwal are memorable. Ivy Harrelson, Eloise Knapps and Du Tran au Fine. Arjun Ramesh (Aditya; child patient), Adrija Sinha (Anya; Jayati’s daughter) and Neha Pednekar (Anuradha; nurse on the 9th floor) are decent.

Sunak, ideally, should have been a songless film. ‘heard’ Poor ‘oh man’ is played in the end credits. ‘Eyes met’ missing in the film. Saurabh Bhalerao’s background score has a cinematic feel.

Cinematography by Prateek Deora is excellent. Despite being 95% shot inside film, Lensman has managed to up the scale and thrill with his camerawork. Andy Long Nguyen’s action as expected is one of the USPs of the film. It is commendable that this time the action theme has managed to think out of the box. Saini S Johra’s production design is a bit stifled given the hospital setting, but still fits well in a film like this. The costumes of Devraj Das and Arti Zutshi are rich. Pixel Digital Studios’ VFX is apt. Sanjay Sharma’s editing could have been sleeker in the second half.

Overall, the craze rests on Vidyut Jammwal’s presence and novel and thrilling action sequences. However, the unnecessarily lengthy second half and the shocking lack of discussion may have weighed on the film’s viewership.
