Chandu Champion


Chandu Champion, the recently released biopic directed by Kabir Khan, chronicles the inspiring journey of Murlikant Petkar, the man behind India's first-ever individual Paralympic gold medal.
Kartik Aaryan Delivers Career-Best Performance
The film hinges on Kartik Aaryan's portrayal of Petkar. Aaryan sheds his usual comedic persona to embody the tenacious athlete with remarkable sincerity. He captures Petkar's innocence, determination, and resilience throughout his extraordinary journey. This is undoubtedly Aaryan's strongest performance to date.
An Uplifting Tale of Overcoming Adversity
The core strength of Chandu Champion lies in its narrative. It follows Petkar's life, from his wrestling days in rural Maharashtra to his Paralympic triumph. The film effectively depicts the challenges he faces, including poverty, disability, and the horrors of war. Yet, it never loses sight of Petkar's unwavering spirit and his relentless pursuit of his dreams.
Formulaic Storytelling Holds it Back
While Chandu Champion's heart is in the right place, the storytelling falls into familiar tropes of the underdog sports drama genre. Predictable plotlines and cliched emotional moments occasionally hinder the film's impact.
Verdict: A Worthy Watch with Reservations
Chandu Champion is a well-made and inspirational film. Aaryan's performance is a highlight, and the story is undeniably uplifting. However, the film's predictability might leave some viewers wanting more.  If you're looking for a feel-good biopic that celebrates the human spirit, Chandu Champion is a worthwhile watch. But those seeking a more nuanced exploration of Petkar's life and struggles might find it somewhat formulaic.
