Runway 34, helmed by Ajay Devgn, premiered today in theatres. It was the year’s most eagerly awaited film. With the interesting trailer for the film, the producers generated just the perfect level of hype. Ajay Devgn’s directorial project ‘Runway 34’ is better in terms of VFX and technical strength but legs behind in screenplay. Runway 34 isn’t overly dramatic, but it’s also not quite profound enough.
Sandeep Kewlani and Aamil Keeyan Khan’s tale set off on a gripping note, highly inspired by Tom Hanks’ Sully and Denzel Washington’s Flight. Bollywood has produced striking aerial thrillers in the past, such as Neerja, Bell Bottom, and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl but Runway 34 is among the great movie with respect to cinematography.
Ajay, once again donning the director’s hat, delivers an amazing performance. He offers a genuine experience rather than just acting with Runway 34. Runway 34 remains authentic to the excitement it creates 35000 feet in the air by avoiding any unnecessary romantic overtones or emotional breakdowns.
Twitter users were ready to share their reactions to the film shortly after its premiere. While some considered Ajay Devgn’s latest movie to be completely brilliant and superb, others felt it to be a Ghatiya attempt by the actor.

The narrative focuses on Ajay Devgn’s character, pilot Vikrant Khanna, who is facing a legal dispute following a horrifying incident that occurred thousands of feet in the air. The movie is modeled on the 2015 Jet Airways Doha-Kochi flight, which narrowly escaped disaster after experiencing issues owing to poor visibility.
Runway 34 Review: Script Analysis
In the first half, the plot is concise, logical, and promises edge-of-your-seat drama. On the other hand, the film’s second half slips poorly, with the writing becoming basic and monotonous. The dialogues are certainly one of the movie’s weak areas. The second half contains some of the most boring and overdone dialogues. Particularly some of the dialogues of Ajay Devgn and Amitabh Bachchan’s characters are just plain creepy.
Runway 34 Review: Star Performance
Ajay Devgn and Amitabh Bachchan’s performances are as usual strong and impactful. On the other hand, Rakul Preet Singh’s performance is average. Other names such as Boman Irani, Angira Dhar, and Aakansha Singh have few roles, and their inputs to the narrative are not offered any substantial value. CarryMinati, a popular YouTuber, features in the movie as himself but his contribution to the plot is zero.
Runway 34 Review: Direction and Music
As the director, Ajay Devgn emerges with a fresh premise with fantastic visual effects. In addition, the action varies between Dubai, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, and Mumbai, and the audience must guess that the transitions are due to conversation rather than a dynamic socio-cultural or geographical backdrop.
The screenplay is mediocre but thanks to Aseem Bajaj’s cinematography and Amar Mohile’s background score. Runway 34 is surely a better direction than Shivaay but not a superb job either.
