Thar Movie Story plot
A young man who appears to have not been recently washed enters a dusty, sun-blasted town. Everyone in the city seems to be staring at him, from the submissive wives of absent husbands to the old-sage sheriff on the prowl for a killer. To his credit, director Raj Singh Chaudhary makes an effort to incorporate all the standard elements of a Hollywood Western into his film Thar, for “Thar Movie” the initial introduction of the plot and characters to the slanted roof houses that look more at home in 1930s Texas than in Rajasthan, from the saloon-style Dhaba (complete with a spittoon) to the dreaded dacoits and their horses and the ensuing police chase through the desolate landscape. Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay, widely regarded as the best Desi Western ever made, is also acknowledged with a brief reference.
Midway through, Thar veers radically away from its Western roots and into the territory of the torture porn genre. After that point, there is not much left to save. However, the traditional Western idea of vengeance remains central. However, towards the end, the treatment of it seems so careless that I can’t give it much credit for sticking to its original premise. One of the more sloppy bits of writing I’ve seen in a while involves a woman being stuffed into a refrigerator right when the audience thinks they’ve seen a unique take on a female character. However, getting to that point of laziness was no picnic either. Prolonged torture and gore scenes fill the middle of Thar, to the point where you could be startled by the appearance of a ventriloquist dummy on a tricycle. The final flashback scene completely changes the film’s tone, making it intolerable to watch. The ‘impact’ of the torture is amplified with the addition of horrifying sound effects, and you’ll be stuck with them, not in an excellent way.
Despite the unfun violence, Thar is watchable thanks to the atmosphere it generates and the talents of its leading players. Harsh Vardhan Kapoor, who plays the film’s enigmatic new character, has never been disappointing, but his KRA this time is 90% brood in the distance and 10% angry reaction shots. On the other hand, he did a great job with very few requirements. Thus, he gets my highest possible rating. Anil Kapoor and Fatima Sana Shaikh, members of the so-called “supporting cast,” received the better-scripted roles. Anil Kapoor convincingly plays the part of the wise but battered inspector eager for promotion and some excitement in his otherwise quiet and beautiful town. You, the viewer of his Netflix show, will respect him just as much as the townspeople do. Anil displays his growth as an artist by demonstrating his mastery of pacing his performance without going too fast or too slow. He is sensitive to the point at which you break down in sobs, staring at the ceiling and the future, helplessly mired in routine life. He is also skilled at persuading others that his favorite dish is the laal maas prepared by his devoted constable. More affection should be shown to Anil than he now receives from us. Fatima Sana Shaikh doesn’t appear like the typical Rajasthani village beauty, but she does an excellent job as the shy wife who seizes her chance when it presents itself. She is given greater leeway than Harsh Vardhan to be herself, whether that is timid, forthright, or afraid.
Some polishing should have been done at the end by Chaudhary and the company; they should have allowed the investigator and the audience to come to the solution on their own. The revenge plot could have been less reminiscent of 1990s Rajiv Rai films. Besides being an extremely tiring diversion, I still don’t see the point of the entire subplot with dacoits and cocaine.
On the other hand, Thar does a great job setting the tone. Most of the film takes either the middle of the day or the middle of the night; the sensation of desolation is hammered home. I wonder if the writer overlooked Thar Movie’s significance beyond that, just a narrative location. For what reason is the entire Thar movie titled? Saw: Improvements are needed in the India section. Should we try Mohra 2? But let’s be honest: Nobody for the next two decades will be able to top the “Naseeruddin Shah isn’t blind” climax reveal.
