Aayush Sharma is a transformed actor and Salman Khan is swag personified in this rough gangster masala movie

Positives: From the start, the Antim: The Final Truths script keeps you hooked and does not give up at least until the interval I have seen. Aayush Sharma is a complete revelation that channels every ounce of the angry-young-man form of yesteryear, and comes out trumps with everything from his dialogue delivery to body language and screen presence to expression – he depicts his transition from a stubborn youth out of his depth to a land mafia king full of power for a man longing for his lost loved ones to near perfection. The cat-and-mouse game between Salman Khan and him is also played out well, with the latter offsetting the film’s hard-hitting and gravel with his epitome of swag and subtle comic timing. But when it comes to the action scenes, he exploits his trademark macho persona, overpowering Aayush and everyone else on screen.

Mahesh Manjrekar can blow hot, blow cold – luckily we get the earlier version this time. His cameo is also good, as are the supporting roles of Sachin Khedekar and Sayaji Shinde. Sure, his movies are quite derived from several gangster classics like Deewar, Vaastav, Agneepath and even a bit of Hollywood’s Scarface, but you do not mind it because of how well their best elements are all mixed together like a tasty curry that gives full-blown entertainment. Ravi Basurr’s terrific background score also lifts the narrative by several notches, and the Bhai Ka Birthday song also sounds good to the ears.

Negatives: While the derivative character of the script is woven like a good ode to the aforementioned gangster classics, a little more originality would not have hurt. Other than the Bhai Ka birthday song, no other track clicks again until the interval I’ve seen. Mahima Makwana also deserved more leeway to perform, especially given how good she is in the few scenes she gets, especially in a confrontational sequence in the vegetable market with Aayush. Speaking of the vegetable market, from where Aayush’s journey as a goon to ganglord begins … yes, it’s taken over quite easily by him, while his rise to the top of the Pune criminal world also does not feel quite as deserved as it should be. . And although I have not seen Mulshi Pattern, it is from what I have heard in these scenes where the film differs from Antim and falls into the derived trap.

Despite a few script problems and its derivative nature, Antim the Final Truth is a very enjoyable gangster movie in the masala form of classics like Deewar, Vaastav and Agneepath. And even though it borrows heavily from them without quite reaching their standards, it does enough until the interval to keep you gripped and wildly entertained to the same degree, riding high on Aayush Sharma’s amazing transformation and showcase his actual talent plus Salman Khan’s swag as only he can. Crossing fingers in the second half is even better.
