Remakes can be pretty entertaining and unique if made in a proper way. Well, in this regard, we can talk about Kartik Aaryan’s recent remake of Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, “Shehzada.” If you have watched the original film of Allu Arjun, you will know that it failed to reach expectations.
Even though Kartik Aaryan tried to give his best for the film. Well, it’s not easy to step into the shoes of a South Indian maestro like Alu Arjun. It is actually the fault of the makers who were not able to bring the exact representation on screen.
So in today’s article, we shall share some of the interesting details about the movie. If you have already watched it, you will know why there are mixed reviews about the movie. So stay tuned to our page to know all the latest updates. Let us take a quick glance.
What Is Kartik Aaryan’s “Shehzada” All About?
Those who have not watched the film would probably be eager to find out what the film is all about, right? So let’s discuss some of the interesting updates about Kartik Aaryan’s remake of superstar Allu Arjun’s “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.” Well, frankly speaking, if you have watched the original movie, we are not sure if you would like this one as well.
So as the story goes, Bantu (Kartik Aaryan) is hated and neglected by his father Valmiki (Paresh Rawal) ever since he was a toddler. After growing up suffering neglect and criticism from his father, Bantu’s world is turned upside down when he comes to know that he was switched at birth with a millionaire’s son.
This is probably the weirdest ‘baby exchanging’ scene the Indian film industry has ever seen. The reason for this exchange was that Valmiki wanted his son to enjoy all the luxuries and comforts that he could not in his life. So Bantu’s fate is served on a silver spoon to Raj (Ankur Rathee). However, one fine day the cat gets out of the bag and leads to a chaotic situation. So now the question arises, will the ‘middle class’ Bantu go down to the Jindall house and ask for his share? Well, if you are a 90s kid, you will know the obvious answer.
Analysis Of Shehzada Movie’s Script
In this section, we shall analyze the causes of why Kartik Aaryan’s “Shehzada” failed to win the hearts of the audience just like Allu Arjun’s “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.” Trivikram Srinivas’ story remains to be as mediocre as it was in the original which was solely saved by the charm of the South Indian superstar and blockbuster music.
As per the sources, the film starts as a TikTok video and remains to be sprinkled with songs that get trending in no time. In fact, Rohit Dhawan’s screenplay also retains the same style as Srinivas’ film.
However, “Shehzada” loses the motif of the character worshipping himself throughout. Well, you can say that it actually acts as an anchor for Allu’s Bantu to be far superior because of the charisma.
In addition, the fight sequences are also more or less the same without any variation. This displays the lack of proper teamwork. In fact, the camera angles are also copy-pasted from the original. Well, these are some of the reasons why “Shehzada” failed to compete with its original film, “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.”
How Was The Performance Of The Cast?
One thing you must have heard is that howsoever the plot may be, it is ultimately the responsibility of the cast members to give justice to the movie with their performance. Well, let’s find out about the performance of the cast of “Shehzada.” As you know, Kartik Aaryan’s USP is his honesty which he portrays in his acting. Well, he did absolute justice to Bantu’s character.
In fact, he tries his best to put in the maximum effort with his performance. The problem lies not with him but with the content. Kriti Sanon has no scope to contribute to the movie other than impress the audience with her beauty. On the other hand, Paresh Rawal does a decent job of being a ‘kamina baap.” So you will want to adore him and kill him at the same time.
At the same time, Ronit Roy continues to explore different versions of the father in Bollywood, but it was not up to the mark. However, watching Manisha Koirala’s comeback on the big screen is the only thing for which the audience will get an incentive to watch the movie.
On the other hand, Sachin Khedekar as Nana does not have much to do in the movie. Ankur Rathee does pretty well being the dumb Shehzada, but you might feel it a bit too much. You will get to see Rajpal Yadav, Sunny Hinduja, and Ali Asgar in special appearances. However, they don’t have much to do in the movie. The makers could not utilize their talent.
Some Significant Details About Shehzada’s Direction & Music
If you have watched Rohit Dhawan’s “Desi Boyz,” “Dishoom” and a few others. So apart from the partial blame of why to remake a mediocre story, Rohit does not add anything of value to differentiate this from the original. It is more or less a copy-paste of Allu Arjun’s original movie. So the audience is naturally disappointed to watch it.
Many of you must have never thought that out of everyone on the cast and crew list, Pritam would be the weakest link. However, the music was actually what weakens the entire feel of the movie. So all in all it is the music, story, and screenplay that takes the movie to its downfall. You cannot blame the cast members much as some of them didn’t have much to do in the story.
So as we conclude, we can say that “Shehzada” is a one-time watch. However, the makers should have concentrated more on the plot, screenplay, and music. If you compare it with superstar Allu Arjun’s “Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo” you will probably be disappointed. This remake might not be up to the mark however, you can watch it for the sake of entertainment. If you have not yet watched the trailer, go ahead and watch it now, you might want to watch the movie.
