Ram Setu Review

Despite being a popular subject, Ram Setu did not impress the critics and the audience, who gave negative reviews for several aspects of the film. Reviewers said that the makers have constantly focused on hammering the subject and developing Akshay Kumar’s character. Several mentioned that the script seems like a ‘sophisticated version of propaganda’ where the film’s subject comes across as uninteresting, lacking imagination and originality. Comments about forcefully sharing the ideology forcing the audience to become a part of the mythology, along with the political inclination of mocking the left wing, making it pro-Hindutva to its core, is seen throughout.
