When you watch the trailer of Biker’s Adda, you seem to have a good feeling that this might just turn out to be what the Dhoom series is to Bollywood. However, as promising as it may look, Biker’s Adda falls short of the mark. With a convoluted plot that will boggle even the most experienced movie goers, the film doesn’t really make an impact for its story. What it does make an impact with, however, is it’s actors.
The film tells the stories of four youngsters, who are part of a biker gang, called the D5. Together, they enjoy stunting, races across the countryside and showing off for female attention. However, one day, they make it to the big league, when they join a group of bike enthusiasts called Biker’s Adda. The group, loosely modeled on Fight Club, are a bunch of racers from all over the city who enjoy guzzlin’ some gas. There are a few things that are done well in the film. The landscapes presented are pleasing to the eye, while the shots of people racing are authentic, and create the right amount of tension in the audience’s mind.
Where Biker’s Adda falters is the plot. With a slow narrative, the film tends to drag in the first hour in spite of some races and a lot of stunts. Add to that a couple of vague flashbacks that disorient. It’s a pity, because lead actor Santosh Juvekar (Vicky) really does a fine job. However, Prarthana Behere (Aditi) is completely wasted in the film, which again, is unfortunate. She’s been known to deliver powerful performances, but is only used as arm candy in this one.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
Watch Biker’s Adda for Santosh Juvekar‘s earnest performance, and Marathi cinema’s foray into making something on the lines of the Dhoom series or even Fast & Furious. Will this be turned into a series too? One wonders.
