Review: Last The Final Truth is very entertaining in the first half and the fight scenes between Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma keep the interest intact. Rating : 3.5 stars
Ultimate – The Final Truth is the story of an enmity between a cop and a gangster. Rahul (Ayush Sharma) lives with his parents and sister in a village near Pune, Maharashtra. His father Datta Pehalwan (Sachin Khedekar) owned a piece of land, but he sold it to Shinde (Uday Tikekar) at an unreasonable price for Seema’s (Siddhi Dalvi) lavish wedding ceremony. Shinde builds a farm house on Dutta’s land and Dutta works there as a security guard. Shinde treats her badly and one day, he fires her from her job on a frivolous excuse. The family then moves to Pune where Dutta Pehalwan works as a porter in the vegetable market. The goons of local councilor Salvi (Vijay Nikam) ask all the porters for a week. A porter, Satya (Mahesh Manjrekar), refuses to pay one day. The goons beat him up. Rahul and his friend Gyan (Rohit Haldikar) attack the goons. Rahul and Gyan are arrested and taken to the nearest police station, led by Rajveer Singh (Salman Khan). Rajveer is a noble officer and Datta refuses to release him despite pleas from Pehalwan and Seema. Rajgir also tells Rahul not to break the law as it may cause trouble to his family. In the prison, Satya and Gyan are attacked by Salvi’s men. The fight is stopped by Nanya Bhai (Upendra Limaye). He sees potential in Rahul and Gyan. Once they come out of jail, Rahul expresses his desire to teach Salvi a lesson. Rahul and Gyan get a chance to do this one day but they accidentally kill him. They are back in jail but this time Nanya Bhai gets bail. Rahul then fights for the rights of the farmers who come to the vegetable market. He decides to give everyone a fair price for their produce. Nanya Bhai sees the potential in Rahul’s business model and becomes a partner. Rahul also starts doing dirty work of Nanya Bhai like forcibly grabbing farm land from poor farmers. Rahul does not find anything wrong in this, but one day Satya tells him that it was Nanya Bhai who had forced Datta Pehalwan to sell his land at a price less than the market price. Nanya had also threatened that he would rape Seema if Dutta Pehelwan turned down the offer. Meanwhile, MLA Ambeer (Sharad Ponkhe), Nanya’s staunch opponent, asks Rahul to eliminate Nanya. What happens next will have to watch the entire film.
Ultimate – The Final Truth 2018 Marathi Movie Mulshi Pattern [प्रवीन तारदे द्वारा लिखित और निर्देशित] It’s an official remake. Praveen Tarde’s story touches upon some important issues like land mafia, migration of rural population and their exploitation in urban areas, etc. Mahesh V Manjrekar, Abhijit Deshpande and Siddharth Salvi’s screenplay is good in the first half but not encouraging in the second half. The characters and the plot are such that the film could have gone to great heights. Instead, the film loses its impact after the writer’s interval. However, some scenes are exceptionally written. The dialogues of Mahesh V Manjrekar, Abhijit Deshpande and Siddharth Salvi are sharp and commercial.
Mahesh V Manjrekar’s direction is fine. Experienced directors try their best to make the film attractive. He also gives the film a very realistic look and realistic setting. Some of the sequences like Rajveer and Rahul’s meeting in the police station and Rahul’s attack on Salvi are quite shocking. The intermission point is dramatic. After the interval, two sequences unfold – one, when Manda (Mahima Makwana) scolds Rahul in front of hundreds in the market, and another, when Rahul asks Dutta to stay with her and the latter refuses. Barring these two sequences and the climax, the second half is unimaginable. Rajveer’s grand plan to start a war between warring gangs is childish and is presented as the biggest plan ever conceived by a character in a film.
Last – The Final Truth introduces the characters and their problems without wasting time. The first half is very engaging and looks like the second half will also be great especially when Rahul and Rajveer fight at the intermission point. But sadly, the film falls apart after the interval. It is only after the chase sequence and the fight sequence that the film comes back on track. The film ends on a very dark and depressing note. Also, the film seems quite local, due to these two factors, the reach of the film may be limited.
Salman Khan is not in the best form but manages to make an impact in few scenes. Thankfully she has a pivotal role and is in the film from start to finish. Aayush Sharma made his acting debut in the film Loveyatri.  Has improved a lot since. Aayush has worked hard and it shows. Apart from the strong performance, his dialogue delivery is also commendable. Mahima Makwana makes a confident start and is memorable in the scene where she yells at Aayush. Sachin Khedekar is dependable. Upendra Limaye makes a big impression in a small role. Uday Tikekar is decent while Vijay Nikam is good in cameos. Mahesh Manjrekar Dabangg  He has played a role similar to that played by him. His dialogues are difficult to understand. Jishu Sengupta (Pity) and Nikitin Dheer (Kindness) don’t seem like much. Prem Dharmadhikari (Sidhu) gives a good performance and has a pivotal role. Rohit Haldikar is in most parts of the film, but he doesn’t have much to do. Sayaji Shinde (Uday) and Bharat Ganeshpure (Lawyer) gave able support. Sharad Ponkashe, Siddhi Dalvi and Chhaya Kadam (Rahul’s mother) don’t get much scope. Waluscha De Sousa is looking very beautiful in item song.
Hitesh Modak’s music is forgettable. The only song that stands out is ‘Koi To Aayega’; It plays in the background and enhances the effect. The rest of the songs – ‘Bhai Ka Birthday’, ‘Hone Laga’, ‘Chingari’ and ‘Vighnaharta’ are disappointing. Ravi Basrur’s background score has a tremendous vibe.
Karan B Rawat’s cinematography is fine, but some of the top angle drone shots on the market are superb. Vikram Dahiya’s action is not bloody and does a good job. The intro action scene of ANL Arasu is the best action piece of the film. Prashant R Rane’s production design is realistic. Ashley Rebello and Alvira Khan Agnihotri’s costumes are genuine and alluring. The editing of Bunty Nagi is neat.
Overall, the final The Final Truth is very entertaining in the first half and the fight scenes between Salman Khan and Aayush Sharma keep the interest intact. But the unexpected second half nullifies the entire impact of the film.
