Bobby Deol in a Scene from Class of '83'. Netflix

Dean Vijay Singh plays Bobby Deol in the film. Bobby has appeared in some kind of character after a long time, where he really had something to do. But this film is not his story. Therefore, the entire focus is also not on him. But leaving the desire to become a hero, choosing such a character, shows his changed mindset. Maharashtra Chief Minister Manohar Patkar plays the role of Anup Soni, a crime patrol.

 

The year 1981. Vijay Singh is an officer of Mumbai Police. He feels that the police force is not able to do justice to his talent. So he starts working on his own to make Mumbai crime free. As a punishment for this, he is removed from the Police Service and made the Dean of the Nashik Police Academy. By manipulating Vijay in the course of the academy, the trainee starts giving practical training to policemen instead of theory. 1983 means that from his first batch he chooses five such students, whose numbers are the lowest in the class. Among these boys, he sees his image. Because those boys are not willing to live under anyone's finger or compromise their principles. After training, Dean Vijay Singh selects him for a mission. Mission to end the Kalsekar gang, which has caused havoc in Mumbai. But with the passage of time, these five boys become headstrong of the police force. Now how Vijay leads them on the path, the film 'Class of 83' is not at all about this.

Dean Vijay Singh plays Bobby Deol in the film. Bobby has appeared in some kind of character after a long time, where he really had something to do. But this film is not his story. Therefore, the entire focus is also not on him. But leaving the desire to become a hero, choosing such a character, shows his changed mindset. Maharashtra Chief Minister Manohar Patkar plays the role of Anup Soni, a crime patrol. Anoop appears in barely four-five scenes of the film and his character is not able to create a sense of being so important for the film. This film is about the five boys Aslam, Shukla, Surve, Varade and Jadhav who were trained under Mumbai and Vijay. But the major part of the story is dedicated to the mutual rivalry between Vishnu Varade (Hitesh Bhojraj) and Pramod Shukla (Bhupendra Jadavat). The performance of these five boys is more than shocking. The biggest contribution to this is their mutual chemistry, which does not seem to be filmy.

In Hindi films, gangsters are usually portrayed as stupid and ill-mannered with strange hobbies. But this film treats him like a common man, who does wrong business. In one scene of the film, Varade goes to kill Kalsekar's special man Ismail Pathan. Where Varade is in the air of his uniform, the same Ismail talks to him very seriously. In the scene just before this, the character of Surve goes to keep an eye on Ismail, he also looks new and attractive.

Class of 83 wants to show the story of gangsters and policemen by balancing. That means she considers the Criminals or the corrupt leaders who help them wrong. At the same time, it tries to show that what the police are doing by going beyond the justice system is also wrong somewhere. But it does not say this openly and the same thing goes against the film. If you see it like a cinema, then you will enjoy it. This film showing the story of the 80s, instead of advancing our thinking, is pushing it back 35 years. Take for example the 'Gunjan Saxena' released sometime back. Factual errors of this film can be debated. Is getting But when you think what she wanted to say in the film, all your questions will be buried under that answer. We mean to say that the whole game is the intention behind making a film. Which does not seem clear in the case of class of 83.

The second major thing in this film of one and a half hours is its detailing. We are told that Dean Vijay Singh gave training to those five boys for every trick of the police force. But we do not see that process anywhere. The film moves forward by showing us Vijay Singh's thug life moment in a few scenes. Do you also think that this man is a man, the boys who are trained will tear the instrument. In the face of heavy words like corruption, administration, friendship, principles and responsibility, small words like logic seem to fill the water. But the viewer remains thirsty.

The total thing is that the story of 'Class of 83' may be new, but it seems to be inspired by the earlier police-made films in the country. If you sit to watch the film, it does not take much time to be with the film. But you are not able to decide in which court you have to stand. You can't choose a hero or a villain. This confusions you throughout the film. By doing anything, the film wants to entertain you and does it. But this is dangerous entertainment.

S. Atul Sabharwal directed film 'Class of 83' based on Hussain Zaidi's book can be seen on Netflix
