Watch it here.
To set the stage, the movie starts with RAW leading forward a terrorist, in chains. The organisation the terrorist is from, plans to conduct bomb blasts in a number of Indian cities to bargain for his freedom. We’re taken on a whirlwind journey, as RAW’s top agent, played by Jeet, uses both brain and brawn, to foil their plans. Throughout the film, Jeet continues to play a mysterious persona. We only know his codename, ‘Panther’. It’s just one of the many factors that make the movie as baffling as it is dramatic.
The drama in Panther is maintained well, with engaging fight scenes, choreographed by Abbas Ali Moghul. They’re epic and are definitely one of the talking points of the film. Then there’s the cinematography by Ramyadip Saha, that perfectly captures, how fast-paced everything is. You can feel the tension, as the agent works against the clock, and the enormity of the situation he’s handling. It’s what makes scenes like the haunting blasts in the trailer hard to forget, with the way they’ve been shot.
The seriousness is broken up by light-hearted moments in between. Fitting in drama and comedy together can be difficult to do, but Panther: Hindustan Meri Jaan does it well. You can look forward to some lovely comic moments, delivered by dependable supporting cast including actors like Saswata Chatterjee. Don’t miss out on the entertaining dance numbers either! They’re an extra delight to watch, because of the lovely female lead Shraddha Das.
With all the fine, diverse elements it has, Panther: Hindustan Meri Jaan makes for a refreshing Bengali spy thriller. Watch Panther for the way it’s been made and for being a classic ‘Jeet’ film, something his fans are bound to love.
