Liger is loud from the word go. Be it the characters, action in the ring or background music – it’s all screeching in your ears non-stop for 140 minutes. One thing that’s evident from the start is that Bollywood doesn’t seem to learn its mistakes. How many times has portraying characters with disabilities such as speech impairment put filmmakers into trouble and Liger is no different. It shamelessly ridicules it’s stuttering protagonist and it’s rather distasteful at times. For instance, when Vijay tries to say his name for the first time, if you don’t see him, you’d actually feel he’s trying to mimic Suniel Shetty. After a point, it started to seem as if the makers didn’t want Vijay to say many dialogues because his Hindi isn’t as fluent and clear. So much for a pan-India film.Liger 2022 Movie Download.
Also, Vijay has had his share of troubles with Arjun Reddy that was tagged problematic and misogynist but Liger hasn’t really learnt a lesson there either. A scene when Liger holds Tanya by collar and then pushes her, or how a girl is unapologetically referred to as a ‘chudail’ only reek of sexism and deep-rooted problems in the mindset. They try to balance it by cleverly placing a reference to Kabir Singh (Arjun Reddy’s Hindi remake) and how men are egoistic and can’t take no from a girl.
Talking of Vijay and Ananya’s chemistry, there’s none. They looked better together while promoting the film that they look on screen. While Vijay lovingly looks at her during the dance sequences, Ananya is only concerned about the camera and chemistry can RIP.For Ananya, I don’t know if she was told what she had to do in the film. Where was the acting? Was it overacting? Was she being herself? Was she trying to be cool? Or dumb? I don’t know. I’m confused.
