Drona - Movie Reviews

Like it or not, Drona is artless, arrogant, brazenly derivative and terribly acted by one and all (except for that puckish dwarf maybe). Behl toys around with special effects which have been served by Hollywood’s sword-and-sorcery epics decades ago. Truly
Hindustan Times 
Drona is a big film in all respects - big stars, big canvas, big expenditure on SFX, big ad spend, big expectations.
SIFY
Goldie Bhel has the ambition but he doesn't have the visual audacity. So the moments of shock and awe are too few and far between. Worse, the writing is painfully inconsistent. The are too many shifts in tone and Bhel is unable to create a fully-realised

And while the soundtrack has its moments, in entirety it's too average to achieve any of these elements.

Creating music for a film like Drona is always a tricky preposition.

And while Drona falls short of being an irresistible experience, it sure had the makings of one.

Is he a storybook superhero, a mythological figure, a prince, or an ordinary guy who forgot to shave?

The film boasts of some great action montages specially a train sequence reminiscent of Sholay.

Fantasy/adventure films are a rarity in Bollywood. Actually, you want to laud Goldie Behl for being courageous, for venturing into a lane that''s rarely visited by dream merchants here. But the screenplay is a complete mess. In fact, if at all there would

To sum up the only saving grace for this film to reduce the loss to maximum extent is Priyamani's glamour show on posters.

Sulekha
Drona is about a son (criminal) meeting his father (cop) and mother after a separation for 14 years. The main drawbacks of the film are incompetent direction and bad villain characterization.
