Vishwavijay, Prashast Singh's first film, turned out to be a truly interesting affair. So, it raised expectations from Aa Gun Thaam, another action film from him. This film has undoubtedly better visuals than Vishwavijay, but what it misses out is the depth and perfection which Vishwavijay had. Still it turns out to be a good watch for the most part.
Aa Gun Thaam revolves around two anonymous characters who want to kill each other. While on wants to seek revenge, another wants to get back his gun from the former. What happens when the two meet is what forms the rest of the story.
Aa Gun Thaam is more visually stunning, better filmed and has better sound effects than Vishwavijay. But at the same time, it's less perfect and has less depth than it too. Also, Aa Gun Thaam is far more violent and gory (though there's not too much bloodshed) than Vishwavijay. So it can't be called a safe watch for kids.
The film is totally action-packed. The action is extremely excellent and a major reason to watch this film. It's too realistic, and that's another plus point. Prashast Singh once again gives similar expressions as he did in Vishwavijay. But this time, his character seems less powerful. The character he plays looks very realistic and believable largely because of this being less powerful. The antagonist played by him seems both strong and week at the same time.
The story could've been executed well on screen. Since the film isn't too long, it's worth your time but a few things deserved on screen presentation rather than just being spoken away.
And yes, the visual effects are good. They support the film to a major extent and make you reciprocate emotionally for the lead character. The best thing is that you feel the seriousness Prashast tries to convey.
Only if he had been a little serious in handling the subject well.
Still, Aa Gun Thaam is worth a watch. Don't have sky-high expectations: you'll get what you didn't get in Vishwavijay, the same away as Vishwavijay offered something which Aa Gun Thaam fails to.
