Munna Michael Movie Review:

Tiger Shroff, Nawazuddin Siddqui and Nidhhi Agerwal starrer Munna Michael released on July 21, 2017. The action dance film talks about following your passion, father-son relationship and intense love. However, the film doesn't connect with the audience even though the messages contained in it are actually strong. The director Sabbir Khan could have utilized the characters in a much better way. At some points, you just feel some kind of a disconnect from the whole scenario, which may annoy you.

Munna Michael Box Office Collection 

Nawazuddin all the way

Munna Michael movie mostly belongs to Nawazuddin Siddqui rather than Tiger Shroff. Nawaz’s character Mahindar is refreshing to the fullest and, to see him in a commercial avatar for the very first time is sheer delight to the eyes. His Haryanvi accent, dance moves and cool dude look impresses all the way. The Swag song is a definite watch where we can see Nawaz flaunting some really cool dance moves. 

In the film, Nawaz is a Delhi based gangster trying to turn modern and learn dance in order to impress a girl Dolly, played by Nidhi Agerwal. This is where Munna aka Tiger steps in as Nawaz’s dance mentor. The student-teacher relationship becomes strong and the duo, pledge as blood brothers. However, as Nidhi enters into the scene, something goes wrong. Will Mahindar and Munna remain friends or turn into foes?

Tiger’s tribute to Michael Jackson is wow

Since the very beginning of the Munna Michael film, Tiger is shown as a die-hard fan of the dancing legend Michael Jackson. His dance moves are simply spot on and, his chiseled physique will definitely make you go gaga. In terms of acting, there is improvement as compared to his debut film Heropanti. However, Nawaz as a strong and experienced actor overshadows him.

Nidhhi is just a pretty face

The new girl Nidhhi Agerwal doesn't contribute much to the film. She is just a dolled up face with no much acting skills. Any other girl could have played her character and, audience too can’t connect with the leading lady at any point of time. Even when she talks about her troubled relationship with her father, the emotion is just not there.

Thumbs up or down?

As a whole, the Munna Michael movie is entertaining and also keeps you engaged at some points. The major problem is the direction. Sabbir Khan had stars such as Nawazuddin Siddqui and Ronit Roy, who plays Tiger’s father in the film. However, we don’t get to see or feel the aura of such strong personalities.  Tiger Shroff could also have done much better rather than just dancing or performing stunts. Even debutante Nidhi had the scope of being more than just a pretty girl.

If you are expecting a fun-filled ride with full-on dance and action, then Munna Michael is definitely for you. There is nothing to learn from the film. It’s more action-based where stunts are great and dance pops up now and then. Just a one-time watch movie where you can leave your brains behind and, simply chill!
