Super 30 Quick Movie Review: Hrithik Roshan's Earnest Act Makes Anand Kumar's Biopic Watchable
"Anand Kumar, a good medallist in Maths in Patna, aims to go to Cambridge University. And he even gets admission for the same. However, he couldn't arrange for finance and ends up selling papads to support his family. Fortune smiles at him when he gets an opportunity to teach at an IIT coaching class, and Anand begins to earn good bucks. But when he realises that only the rich are benefitting from his knowledge, Anand decides to start his own coaching class to teach the poor and the unprivileged but brilliant students. That too for free, even if it puts him at the risk of penury. And thus begins the journey of Super 30. Super 30: Censor Board Objects to Usage of ‘Ramayana’ in Hrithik Roshan’s Film.
The first half of the film is quite decent with some good moments. Even though there is nothing ground-breaking about the narrative, Anand Kumar's life story has a lot of potential and the movie offers enough scope to display that. Hrithik Roshan's performance is equally decent, even though his accent still feels heavy-handed. The interval point arrives at a very interesting turn where we begin to find out how Anand Kumar manages to do the impossible."
