Another gripping action thriller from John Abraham!
15 August 2019 | by Prashast_SinghSee all my reviews

2019 has indeed turned out to be a great year for action movies of different themes. Same is the case with this one. Just like last year, John Abraham is back with another action thriller that keeps you glued to the edge of your seats and gives you a sense of satisfaction when you leave the seat.

Yes, Batla House is that good!

The film is packed with action, emotion and tension: all mixed in a perfect proportion. I think John Abraham indeed delivered one of his finest performances of all time You can see the sincerity in his eyes. He definitely deserves an award for such an outstanding act. Every actor is perfectly cast, especially Ravi Kishan who leaves a memorable impact despite of his limited role.

The film features outstanding action sequences where you really feel the intensity and care for the characters. The shootouts and chases are both choreographed and shot with perfection. The screenplay is watertight and the editing, top notch. The songs don't hinder the narrative and instead make the proceedings more gripping.

I had been waiting for this film since long and having seen it, I can say that I'm completely satisfied. Batla House is a gripping, masterfully crafted action thriller that needs to be seen not just for the facts it presents but also for its cinematic brilliance.
