Vidyut Jammwal has become one of the top action stars of the film industry. The actor, it seems, wants to take it to the next level with his upcoming ventures. The latest attempt towards this was the movie Sanak, which released on Friday. The Commando star is once again doing that he loves the most, packing punches and delivering kicks. 

Though the movie directly hit the web amid the COVID-19 pandemic, reviews started pouring in on Twitter. While one section was impressed with the action and the thriller element, another felt that the movie did not live up to the expectations. Here's looking at what netizens had to say about the action thriller: 

Vidyut Jammwal-starrer Sanak Twitter review

Reviews for Sanak were mixed. Comments ranged from the 'best action thriller' to a 'failed attempt.' 

One netizen called Vidyut the 'greatest action hero of the country' after watching Sanak for 'original & bone-breaking stunt work at a breathless pace.' One suggested that he was Hollywood material and that he deserved a 'power-packed script' to showcase his potential. Words like 'edge of the seat drama', 'power-packed Dussehra gift' were used by some, while some appreciated the lack of 'unwanted heroism & cringe dialogues' 

Neha Dhupia and Chandan Roy Sanyal, who plays the role of the antagonist were acknowledged by the netizens.

On the other hand, the other terms for the movie were 'cliched action thriller' with a lack of originality. One stated that despite the movie not being up to the mark and being 'shoddily written & abysmally directed film', Vidyut had stood out and was the only saving grace. One Twitter user called the movie average.

With Sanak, Vidyut is joining hands once again with the filmmaker Vipul Amrutal Shah, with whom he has worked in the three installments of the Commando franchise. 

Sanak is directed by Kanishka Varma. The movie also stars Bengali actor Rukmini Maitra, among others. The plot of the movie revolves around terrorists taking up hostages at a hospital. Vidyut's character, whose girlfriend is one of the patients, takes up the challlening task. The movie is available for streaming on Disney+Hotstar.
