‘Red Alert-The War Within’ Movie Preview

Some movies come silently into theatres without creating any buzz and fuss but they leave their huge impact on audiences. And it becomes more important, when actor like Suniel Shetty, who was out from screen from the long-time, came into lime-light because of his acting skills. Here, I am talking Anant Narayan Mahadevan’s next flick, Red Alert- The War Within, where Suniel Shetty has been playing a entirely different role which he has been playing in the past. The flick stars Nasseruddin Shah, Vinod Khanna, Ashish Vidyarthi, Gulshan Grover and Sameera Reddy.

Based on the real story, the flick revolves around Narasimha (played by Suniel Shetty), a poor laborer, who is desperate in need for money to educate his children. In a search of money, Narasimha comes in contact with a group of terrorists. Initially, Narasimha was cooking food for the group, later on he get trained for weapons and involves himself in shootouts and kidnapping. Meanwhile his journey toward terrorism, Narasimha realized that his destiny has forced him to become terrorist.

Narasimha’s life becomes even more complex when he lands up in war of words and disagreement with the group leader (Ashish Vidyarthi). This makes his life hell. Now the question arises is- Will Narasimha follow his principles and disagree with the leader’s plans and deeds? Or, will he go against his morals and support the Naxal cause?

While making of the movie, Anant Narayan Mahadevan has not given importance in face value, that’s why he took Suniel Shetty, Bhagyashree, and Sameera Reddy. Anant says,

“Distributors were wary because the film stars Suniel Shetty. In fact Sunil had himself questioned me when I had narrated the script to him. ‘Why are you offering me this film? I don’t sell solo.’ But I was sure Suniel was right for Red Alert. From the way he has worked on his look and body language to his expressions, Sunil becomes the character of the reluctant Naxalite.”
