The director of the film ‘IB 71’, Sankalp Reddy, has previously made a strong film like ‘Ghazi Attack’. But unfortunately this time he could not show the same strength as before. He tried to make a film on a thriller spy mission, but due to a weak story and screenplay, it could not leave much of an impact. The story of the film is written by Aditya Shastri, in which all the flaws are visible. Before the interval, Sankalp tries to explain the sequence of events, but in the second half, several such ridiculous incidents take place on Pakistani soil, leaving the audience to wonder if intelligence missions are really carried out so easily. The climax of the film is also not that strong.
Vidyut Jamwal has done a decent job in the film. Anupam Kher is engrossed in his role as always, while Vishal Jethwa and Ashwath Bhatt breathe life into their roles. The rest of the cast has also done a good job. Set in the backdrop of war, the film has an excellent background score and cinematography that will surely impress you. The editing of this film of only two hours is also crisp. If Sankalp had worked a little more on the story and screenplay of the film, he could have made a great film.
Why watch this movie? – If you are fond of patriotic movies, you can watch this movie in theaters. Otherwise wait for it to come on OTT.
