Director Sudha Kongara’s Sarfira is one of the most inspiring films of the year.

The story revolves around Vir Mhatre (Akshay Kumar), an ex-airforce pilot who dares to start an airline for common men with a fare  as minimum as Re 1. Rani (Radhikka Madan), a middle-class girl aspiring to start her own bakery business, is the crush of Vir, and through their families, talks are on for their marriage. Despite having no money, Vir dared to start an airline and met many business tycoons and venture capitalists. He himself was aware that he was on a mission impossible and still fought the situation harder. Even unofficially and illegally, he tried to meet the president of India and open up his business idea. Finally, the president of India, Mr. Kalam, took a personal interest in this matter and recommended his name to the legal authority to grant him permission to start the airline. Despite all this, was this business really so easy to start for him? Did he really face the conspiracy and politics of competitors and industry insiders? Could he really become successful enough to start the airline with just one rupee air fare? To know the answers to all these questions, one must watch this film.

Akshay Kumar is the center of attraction in the film. He impressed the audience with his mind-blowing performance. Actress Radhikka Madan also performed well. Her onscreen innocent look was actually quite impressive and enhanced the beauty of her role. Apart from the lead cast, other artists like Paresh Rawal, Seema Biswas, R Sarathkumar, and Sourabh Goyal, etc. have also done justice to their parts.

The direction of Sudha Kongara can be seen here. Every scene—in fact,  every frame—is quite impressive and keeps you engaged throughout. The screenplays of Sudha Kongara and Shalini Ushadevi and the dialogues of Pooja Tolani are good. The charisma of Niketh Bommireddy’s cinematography can be seen here.

Although music doesn’t have much importance in this inspiring drama, the music of G. V. Prakash Kumar, Tanishk Bagchi, and Sujit Abhayankar and the score by GV Prakash Kumar are quite impressive. Manoj Muntashir Shukla’s lyrics enhance the beauty of the music.

Overall, this is one of the most inspiring films, and no one should miss it. The film clearly gives motivation and inspiration for one and all not to give up on their business mission. The film has almost everything that a cinemagoer expects from a film. So, why wait? Go, and watch it in your nearest cinema hall.
