‘Freaky Ali’ first half review: Nawazuddin Siddiqui effortlessly carries the film on his shoulder

Powerhouse performer Nawazuddin Siddiqui makes an entry into the sports ground with a golf stick in this Sohail Khan directorial. It’s the interval now and as expected Nawazuddin has brilliantly carried this film on his shoulders.

The first half traces the journey of orphan Ali from a local goon to a professional golfer. There are many obstacles in between but Ali, with friend Maqsood and his coach, and not to forget the blessings of his mother who had adopted him, works with his strength to never back out.

Nawazuddin is impressive, he can mould himself into any role with ease. Arbaaz khan is superb. Asif Basra is supportive. Amy Jackson and Jas Arora has been given less scope in first half, hope their characters turn more integral in second half.
