"Raids being conducted at 1000 locations": Punjab police on operation to nab aides of gangster Goldy Brar
A decade of Vipul Shah’s Commando: A One Man Army film that rose action standards high in the industry
Vipul Amrutlal Shah’s blockbuster hit Commando: A One Man Army starring Vidyut Jammwal clocks 10 years of its release today. And today is the right time to discuss how the filmmaker took the action sequences a notch higher 10 years back and how it is now successfully progressing into becoming the first super hit franchise to continue on OTT.
Commando: A One Man Army is the first installment in the action thriller series and the film cemented a benchmark for more high octane action films to come. Starring Vidyut Jammwal, Pooja Chopra, Jaideep Alhawat, the movie revolves around the story of Karan, a disavowed Indian commando, who helps protect a woman from a local thug who is hellbent on forcing her to marry him. While Commando: A One Man Army was the first and most highly proficient martial arts movie to be made in India, this opened a row for more filmmakers to experiment with more action and adventure sequences in Indian cinema.
Commando: A One Man Army was instilled with a whirlpool of emotions for viewers to feel, from being a perfect popcorn watch to an ideal actioner that has an immaculate amount of romance. Vidyut Jammwal is in top form, doing full justice to the job at hand in the film and Shah has simply lived up to his body of work. Now Commando is all set to become the first super hit franchise to continue on OTT. No filmmaker has ever invested in storytelling like Vipul Shah before.
