Class of 83 Review
After giving some of the neat performances in Bollywood, actor Bobby Deol made his digital debut with the Netflix Atul Sabharwal’s crime drama film Class of ‘83. Bobby will be seen portraying the role of Vijay Singh, a sharp ex-Mumbai cop, who has been sent on punishment posting as the dean of the police academy in Nashik. You might have heard the saying, “ you can’t restrict an idea”, that is what happened in the movie. In Fact you can not expel the inner self of doing what he wants, and so Bobby Deol (Vijay Singh) felicitates a group of young police trainees to tackle the Mumbai underworld of the ‘80s by going out of the way. His four trainees played by Bhupendra Jadawat, Hitesh Bhojraj, Sameer Paranjape and Ninad Mahajani soon adopt unconventional methods to trap criminals, but it’s interesting to watch if there is a chance that they pass or fail.
It’s all together a story with a nice planned script but somehow it doesn’t transform on the screen with equal effect.
The good thing is the premise of ‘Class of 83’ which is undoubtedly an interesting one of the early 80s era. Worth to mention the film does a commendable job of recreating the completely imbibing the look and feel of that time. And the recreation of the Police training sessions is fab and has an authentic touch which is again interesting to watch.
Talking about the characters, this is Bobby Deol’s digital debut and he effortlessly slips into his role of the older, mature and determined cop, pulling off a restrained and convincing act. While newcomers Sameer Paranjpe, Bhupendra Jadawat and Hitesh Bhojraj have done an impressive job and succeeded in spirited performances. It will be a pleasure to watch talented actors like Anup Soni, Prithvik Pratap, Joy Sengupta and others. Accompanied by Joy Sengupta and Vishwajeet Pradhan that add grace to the film. Overall Bobby Deol’s Netflix film promises a high octane cop drama blended with some good and defensive performances. And that will drive you to look forward to it.
