'Kissan' Movie Review

Among the actors Sohail stands tall, quite often taller than the material given to him. Will someone make a film that would justice to this Khan’s talent?


Sohail Khan is the most underrated Khan in the film industry. Comic roles or something requiring an intense application in the midst of abject melodrama like Kissan, Sohail knows his craft and he uses it with crafty transparency.Sohail had earlier done a fairly watchable take on the the question of Indianness in I Proud To Be An Indian with the same director. In Kissan Sohail champions the cause of rural life with a plot that nudges Manoj Kumar’s Upkar .It’s a nudge that doesn’t topple the patriotism over.

The story of a wizened father (Jackie Shroff, sufficiently wise in look and makeup) and his two sons, one gone to the city (Arbaaz) and eventually seed marries a girl who’s blessedly not the urban predator-vamp.The other is a quiet faithful son who stays with her father in the Punjabi farm ploughing not just the land but also goons who dare to cross their path.The authentic Punjabi locales replete with lush stretches of sarso ke khet handpumps and sugarcane juice give the film a rugged and credible climate. However many of the peripheral characters specially the corrupt villainous caucus are purely caricatural. If subtlety is your big cinematic turn-on then Kissan may not be your cup of tea…or should that be glass of lassi?

Kissan is like a tall spiced-up glass of lassi, not quite malaai maar ke. It’s an unabashed celebration of oldfashioned melodrama with dollops of bone-crunching action in the last 30 minutes that leaves us wondering if Manoj Kumar ever imagined the fight to hold on to the land could ever get so violent and bloody.The principal characters seem to inhabit rural Punjab with comforting familiarity. The ambience is conducive to a demonstration of flamboyant emotions. The direction is often ramrod straight and literal. The film’s charm lies in its ability to be an oldfashioned cliché without getting wobbly.

However the Punjabi songs and the hideous remix of Mahendra Kapoor’s Mere Desh ki dharti get on the nerves. But Sanjoy Chowdhary’s background music is first-rate in its ability to be replicate the character’s emotional graph.
