Ganapath is another addition to Tiger Shroff’s filmography. Apart from his eight-pack abs and acrobatic mixed martial arts, the film really doesn’t have much to offer.
How does “Ganapath: A Hero is Born” relate to Karl Marx’s theory?
Based on a dystopian future, Ganapath is entirely based on Karl Marx’s theory of Immiseration, which states the rich will be richer and the poor will be poorer and they’ll have no choice but to revolt.
We notice, in the film the rich capitalists accumulated a huge wealth and built metallic skyscrapers of the Silver City, leading a promiscuous lifestyle whereas the poor are left behind the impregnable wall. However, this wall was not present in the past (which is our present) but gradually, people wanted to break the wall and merge into a larger society where no class is present.
Ganapath: A Hero is Born is completely focused on proving the fact that class war is an injustice to the poor and rich people are always bad whereas poor people are always good.
The Fight Club:
In a poor and wretched society, Thalapathy (Amitabh Bachchan) emerged with the idea to establish a boxing ring that would help the poor to express their frustration (similar to Fight Club). But the blue-eyed John the Englishman copied the idea and decided to recruit fighters from here to fight in the boxing ring of Silver City which is also known as “Modern Day Roman Collosseum”.
The Entry of Guddu:
John’s right-hand and wrestling curator Guddu (Tiger Shroff) a womanizer and ab-aficionado went against him and from the rich’s world, he became the messiah of the poor. He is the “Ganapath”, the savior of the poor from the grasp of the rich. Like any other normal hero, he is destined to fight against the rich and bring justice to the poor.
Guddu Became Ganapath:
The journey from Guddu to Ganapath was facilitated by Shiva and Jassi (Kriti Sanon) who live in a poor, sanded, and isolated mountaintop beyond the urban area. Jassi is a stoic warrior who uses nunchucks as her weapon and wears navel-gazing clothes.
Tiger Shroff as Ganapath tried his best through his sleek actions and stunts to infuse masala into the movie but it didn’t work. The poor-quality dialogues, VFX, and screenplay made the film lengthy. Twists after twists, and relentless action sequences were very difficult to bother. Yes, there were twists, and they surprised us but when you think about the execution, it looks very silly. When Ganapath met his doppelganger, he was not surprised, how is this possible?
Should you watch the film?
Ganapath is a no-brainer masala film that only can provide you with actions, songs, and the charm of Tiger Shroff. If you are a fan of Tiger Shroff, you should watch the first dystopian movie of Bollywood. If you are only an action-lover, you can check it out too because Tiger Shroff deserves praise for his action sequences. It is a one-time watch film in the holidays. We gave the film 1 out of 5.
