P.S. Mithran is one of the best and most original directors in Indian cinema, and we all know how much of an impression he made with his first movie, the Telugu film Abhimanyudu. He is unquestionably the first director in India to expose bank and digital frauds, but his new movie Sardar has nothing to do with his first.
The movie starts off with an interesting sequence that keeps the viewer’s attention to watch the entire film. Though the film has a few flaws here and there, the non-linear screenplay and engaging scenes keep the audience glued to their seats from the start to the end. The movie is a rooted spy story that has all the elements to connect every section audience. The second half’s speed slows briefly when the flashback starts, but quickly picks up until the climax. The first half included a raunchy storyline.
Despite a few dull scenes, the movie has everything it needs to keep viewers’ attention. It also has just the appropriate amount of drama and heartfelt moments, especially during the action and investigative scenes that draw you into Sardar’s world and leave you feeling satisfied.
Raasi Khanna did well in the lawyer role with no room for performance, Malayali actress Rajisha Vijayan has done an incredible job as her character has few layers and she portrayed so well, Chunky Pandey is good, and the rest of the cast did well as per their character. Karthi has done a dual role of Father and Son and effortlessly he has done both characters. Particularly should appreciate his multiple get-ups.
The plot itself is quite interesting, showing how a spy sacrifices his life for the country and in the return no one talks about him or his bravery, and all these points addressed so well in the movie. P.S. Mithran was successful in holding the audience’s attention because we can see his brilliance in writing and he successfully transformed onto the screen.
With the exception of a few VFX scenes, Sardar’s technical presentation is excellent. George C. Williams’s cinematography is a strength of the picture, and the colour tones and grading are good. GV Prakash Kumar never disappoints with his music, but the Telugu songs didn’t register because of the Tamil flavour.
However, he showed his mark in the BGM, which he literally elevated many scenes with. The rest of the technical departments performed well in accordance with the
Overall, Sardar is a grounded spy movie that appeals to all audience segments.

- In the second half few scenes
