Koyelaanchal: Film Review – A story of power and corruption gone wrong

Directed by Ashu Trikha and starring Vinod Khanna, Suniel Shetty and Vippino, Koyelaanchal will definitely not be your pick of the weekend. The movie apparently set out to address the issue of the coal mafia and the riots that took place in the Jharkhand region after the government chose to acquire the coal mining sites. Poor acting and a poorly-crafted storyline are not the only elements that would cry out to you through the screen and urge you to leave the theatre within the first hour itself. Half an hour into the movie, the feeling of nausea engulfs us due to bloodshed and mayhem, which has no apparent purpose to go as brutal as it does.

Saryu Bhan Singh (Vinod Khanna) is a coal mafia don in the village of Koyelaanchal. He has been looking after the illegal mining business with the help of his right-hand man, Karua (Vippino) for 40 years. Karua is a like a loyal dog, devoid of emotions but he shall kill and rip anyone apart, just at the instruction of his master. Everything goes illegally perfect in their little haven until the new and honest District Collector, Nisheeth Kumar (Suniel Shetty), takes charge of the office. Then ensues the very predictable war of the two worlds, followed by an ending one might not bother to sit through.

The movie has its own unique slapstick moments, not worth looking forward to. From a villain who undergoes transformation after being subjected to the chores of childcare to a supporting actress playing a prostitute and posing a live example of a wardrobe malfunction, the audience is next to mortified. The music could have provided some relief, only were it present at all. The Intelligence Bureau officer played by Kannan Arunachalam loses his rolling tongue accent by the end of the movie, which was probably the only thing at all that could have (unintentionally though) entertained the audience.

All in all, the movie has not accentuated its theme that could have been dealt with in a better manner.

Why should you watch the film?
The story depicts the fact that sometimes it is not power that wins battles. Battles might also be won by tenderness of a mother’s love and helpless cries of a child. An underlying principle that thus runs throughout the story, this is a formula that shall never fail to touch hearts.
