Vidyut Jammwal Plays An Ordinary Man in Khuda Haafiz
Vidyut Jammwal and Shivaleekha Oberoi as the Khuda Haafiz Cast in the Khuda Haafiz Movie
In between the popular biopics of famous personalities like Shakuntala Devi and Gunjan Saxena, emerges a fictional movie called Khuda Haafiz, featuring Vidyut Jammwal and Shivaleeka Oberoi. Faruk Kabir, the writer as well as the director of the movie, who has earlier made Allah Ke Banday in 2010, and few web series, tells a story that is somewhat thrilling and successfully keeps up with the suspense.
It has been prevailing from the fairy tale where the story talks about the love affair of a man and woman and how that gets disturbed by the introduction of the villain who (generally) tries to abduct the woman, which he achieves undoubtedly. Then comes up the man, who tears up his ordinary mask and rises up as a heroic character, to venture himself into saving his beloved.
The Plot Of The Khuda Haafiz Movie
The movie Khuda Haafiz is based on the genre which is no different from the synopsis of the clichéd love story in the folklore and fairy tales. The movie has been set during the global economic crisis that took place in 2008. It was the time when millions of people lost their jobs. The protagonist of the movie, Sameer, who has been played by Vidyut Jammwal, appears as a very ordinary man, from Lucknow. He too was shown among the unfortunate ones along with his wife, Nargis, played by Shivaleeka Oberoi, who lost their jobs.
While searching for jobs, Nargis gets kidnapped in a Middle East country named Noman. She, however, manages to put her last call to Sameer and inform him that she has been kidnapped. Before she could go into details, the call hung up. There starts the journey of an ordinary man where he devotes himself in searching for his wife.
As soon as Sameer landed in the country of Noman, a new adventure started. He met a few people among which there are a kind and friendly taxi driver, Pathan, who has been with him until the end of his journey. He realised that his wife has been sold and he pushed all his limits to rescue her but failed in his first attempt.
The Second Half Of The Movie Brings Twist
The first half of the story might seem to have dragged for keeping up with the suspense which could have been better if the narration was crisper. Finally, he takes the help of the embassy and police to get into the root of the racket. However, the second half brings a twist, when one of the trusted men turns out to be a traitor, which has given the plot a sharp turn. However, the story seems predictable from a certain point.
Vidyut Jammwal, who is famous for his action-oriented movies, appears in a different shade and personality which proves his versatility towards his choice of characters. But in Khuda Haafiz, he manages to give a glimpse of his latent potential. Also about Shivaleeka, she appears in the movie just to play a character around whom the story can be made, apart from that she does not have any major contribution through her skills to leave any impact on the audience. Overall, the movie is worth a watch if you do not plan to go deep inside as there appear many loopholes which can appear too real to exist.
