HYPE was the thing that FIGHTER created most before release. Jeet's two previous blockbusters WANTED & JOSH helped the most as people could see that Jeet is the best in his rough action hero avatar. So, only a jackass would imagine to miss him in theaters this new year. The lavish locations, the shiny star cast, the massive promos, super Jeet-Ferdous & Rabi Kinagi - the only person who gives good commercial films in the mean time --- Fighter has every positive features that a film needs to be successful.
A Happy Family Of 6 people where big bro is an honest ACP of Durganagar Police Station, Subhash Chandra Bose(Ferdous). Durganagar is under shoes of Section Shankar(Bharat Kaul) who takes a loan of 100 crores from a bank and when he can't return it, kills the chairman of the bank. Section Shankar diverts the case towards Subhash and claims him guilty. Now here comes Subhash's brother Surya(Jeet)'s turn to prove his brother's innocence. Will he in assistance with his love (Srabanti) & friends succeed in his mission?
First of all, Jeet has done nothing new here, he was the same as he was in JOSH. The playful and sweet but at times rough avatar of him has done very good for him and he should continue with this. As central character he was fab, the whistles and claps prove that. Every time he punched, kicked or said anything heroic, you have to close your ears if you don;t want to be deaf in future.
Ferdous, the second most important character in the movie. I can't describe how wonderful he has done after a long blackout. He didn't look so dashing, handsome and was not so sexy, heroic in any other film. The X-Factor that Tees Maar Khan was searching in his dumb movie was in ACP Subhash of Fighter. Ferdous was magnificent in a word, The CHULBUL PANDEY Of Bengal.
Srabanti was very beautiful & sweet throughout the movie. She doesn't have a good role in the movie, but the little dialogues and acting she had to do, did fine. Others like Biswajit Chakraborty, Locket Chatterjee, Partha Sarathi Ghosh and etc. were fine. Bharat Kaul was excellent at his role. Section Shankar wouldn't have been so dangerous and deadly if Bharat was not there. Bishwanath Chakraborty as a cameo was funny indeed.
Music by Indradeep Dasgupta was outstanding. Every song in assistance with great locations and visualizations were the apple of the eye. Editing by Rabiranjan Moitra could have been good as the 170 minutes duration of the movie seemed long at some times. Ravi Kinagi is the man who needs standing ovation as he can give Tollywood such authentic commercial masterpieces. The way he has shown the Telugu movie "LAKSHYAM" in a complete new way in FIGHTER, that's the thing everyone can't do even copying from south flicks.
Allover, Fighter must not be as good as WANTED or JOSH, but Fighter has fought bravely to make a respectable position in box-office. If, you are a die-hard Jeet or Ferdous fan, you will have to watch it. Final Word? Fighter will stand still in box-office because of four strong pillars - Jeet, Ferdous, Bharat Kaul & Rabi Kinagi.
