    Roar can’t boast of big names and perfect acting skills but it can always show you something that you didn’t even know existed in India. Yes, CGI is largely responsible for it but even then somebody had to use it judiciously. Sadanah, also the editor of Roar, has somehow managed to keep the tempo satisfactory till the end. In my opinion, Roar deserves your attention because it’s a smartly executed film.

  • You’d be naive to go into this one looking for top grade acting or direction but if you have liked any adventure film starring Dwayne Johnson, then the Sunderbans are the place for you.

    Those who are not hooked onto Hollywood films won’t mind watching (former actor) Kamal Sadanah’s ambitious directorial debut, which can be applauded for its novelty and decent VFX. Kamal has dared to make an animal-centric thriller, a genre unexplored in Bollywood.

  • I am glad Roar could atleast make me laugh. Because the film is so pointless that it doesn’t serve anything it attempts to or thought of achieving. In the end, you come out with both a headache from all the stupidity you had to witness and a stomach ache from all the laughing. I am going with a zero. I wasted enough time writing about my harrowing experience and stars aren’t needed beyond that.

    At times the film looks like an extension of Save Tiger campaign. Story of the film is weak. Roar may be a good attempt but director Kamal Sadanah shouldn’t expect accolades yet.

    If you enjoy films like Anaconda, then go for it. Roar might just heal your wounds inflicted by Happy New Year.

    Roar makes little sense…A friend summed it up best. “The audience will need tiger balm after seeing Roar.”

  • On the whole, despite its decent VFX work, ROAR: TIGERS OF THE SUNDARBANS is a weak film.

    Their whole approach to hunt the tiger borders on the ridiculous at times. In between all the tiger hunting, there is also a molestation attempt, of one of the women that is. It is hard to understand the characters and their motivations, they are way too superficial. The special effects are a mixed bag, the odd one is impressive while some of it looks fake. The acting also borders on the amateurish. On the whole, these tigers are not burning too bright.

  • Good attempt Kamal Sadanah. It takes the brave to explore the lives of the tigers. At least it was better than BANG BANG and HAPPY NEW YEAR put together!

  • By the time the credit rolls, it’s evident that the intention of the film is to throw light on the depleting number of tigers in the country. But the journey to get the message is too slippery and full of loopholes. However, if you’re looking for a series of inadvertent laughs, then you’ll do just fine.

    An interesting film failed by bad direction and terrible acting…

  • I feel for the ‘Save the Tiger’ campaign. But if a film about a tiger, such as this, was in front of you, I would suggest that you save yourself first.

  • The film claims to have not hurt any animals. But what about the poor audience? There ought to be a parallel SPCA — Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Audience.

    You will groan in certain places, but you will grin when the tiger starts to prowl. In the end, it is a film that has been made with passion and care. It just falls short in certain elements. The movie is good for a weekend watch with friends.

  • In the end, director Kamal Sadanah perhaps intended a well-meaning film but got the grammar of filmmaking all wrong. With a subject such as this, it’s truly an opportunity missed.

  • Visually the film is good and is based on a nice concept, so for those who like logic less Bollywood movies, this movie is worth the try. If not, then i just you opt for another movie.
