Ajay Devgn’s ‘Runway 34’ transforms a tense and horrifying real-life event into a flat drama

Spoilers ahead…

All of this should have been tense, nail-biting stuff – but it looks generic due to the generic visual effects, the generic dialogues, and the generic characters.

The first half of Runway 34 is dedicated to proving that the airline captain Ajay Devgn plays is an alpha male. No, literally. When we see him for the first time, an ad jingle-like bit in the background goes “He’s an alpha man.” Which makes me wonder: had he been a little less manly, would he be a beta man? Are there more categories of manliness: gamma men, delta men? Ajay proves his alpha man status by smoking non-stop, or by going to a nightclub and picking up a woman with this line. She asks what she’ll get if she goes with him. He says, “My company.” Um… okay! Another quality of the alpha man is apparently that he has a photographic memory. You do not want him near your computer’s history.
