    Soldier rating: 3 out of 10(Aditya Chakrabarty wrote on 06 Feb 2010)

    This is probably the most ridiculous film to come out of Tollywood of date. First the tale: College students are hijacked by terrorists in Kasmir. The male members are let off and the female members are kidnapped by the terrorists. They are willing to release the female students if their leader Jabbar Khan is released who is in jail and will be hanged. The four male students see an ad in the papers one day of the Indian Army who are looking for boys to work in their canteen. Once they get in the army, they discover that their mission is common as Brigadier Sabyasachi Sen who also wants to finish Jabbar Khan because his family had been killed by Jabbar Khan. The Brigadier takes the four boys in a plane and goes to rescue the girls and manages to do so. While returning, he sees Jafar Khan being escorted back by the police as he had been released from jail. Sabyasachi is brought down from his aero plane and asks the police to release Jafar Khan and he starts bashing him up and ultimately finishes him.

    Now the absurdities-Prasenjit is a brigadier in the army, but how can he navigate an aeroplane which later Subhash (Soham) takes over? It is true that Subhash and his friends join as canteen boys but as it is the army, how can they be allowed to keep the amount of hair that they have? Jaffar Khan asks Sabysachi at the Line of Control-the border between two countries but other than those two we do not see a single soul over there. How strange! Sabysachi goes to fight terrorists with four ‘soldiers’ and he is carrying a pistol to fight them. HA! HA! The judge passes his judgment in the Supreme Court, but he is being taken in an open jeep in Kashmir (we are made to believe!).One is positive of more absurdities if one looks at things more carefully. The plot itself is ridiculous and everything about the film is extremely laughable and absurd! Soham and the rest of the guys look like complete jokers as does Prasenjit as a brigadier as he doesn’t even know how to walk properly! Indrani Dutta is completely wasted as is Sreelekha and Koel Banerjee. One of the songs of the film is a complete copy of the title track of the evergreen Hindi film of yesteryears ‘Love In Tokyo’. The worst part? Prasenjit navigating the plane and also singing along with the boys while going to rescue the girls! It seems as if the film was stuck for some time because Prasenjit's hair length varies from scene to scene and therefore there is inconsistency in the film.
