Vidyut to change action genre with 'Commando'?

New Delhi, Jan 18 (IANS) Actor Vidyut Jammwal's new film "Commando" is high on action, and promises to change the landscape of the genre in films.

"Vidyut's 'Commando' is touted to change the action landscape in India with sequences that showcase never-seen-before action, focused on hand to hand contact-based combat, free runs and depth jumps, mid-air splits and somersaults, flip-punches and impact attacks, all done without any body doubles or cables by our very our hot rod," said an insider.

Interestingly, Hollywood action star Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1985 film was also titled "Commando", where he played a special force agent. That film too changed the way action genre was seen at the time.

"Vidyut's character is that of a special forces agent which was also what was essayed by Arnold in the 1985 Hollywood hit, which showcased action that was extremely hardcore, yet (it was a) natural and true-to-life portrayal," the insider added.
