Code NameTiranga Hindi Movie Review: Over the years, Parineeti has been in a number of films, but none of them have led to a breakthrough. Undeterred, she just released a spy action thriller titled Code Name Tiranga. The trailer did a good job of building anticipation, and the film’s October 14, 2022, release date comes with lofty expectations; with that in mind, let’s dig into a thorough review and see if it’s worth seeing.
After the 2001 parliament attack, Khalid Omar (Sharad Kelkar) went underground. Years later, the Indian government learned that he was hiding in Turkey and launched Operation Code Name Tiranga, with RAW agent Durga (Parineeti) at the helm. While in Gaziantep under the alias Ismat, Durga fell in love with Dr. Mirza Ali (Harrdy Sandhu), but their relationship was complicated by the fact that they were both on the Will she give up everything she holds dear for her country? The story continues to reveal how she was able to apprehend Khalid Omar.

In the years following the success of her debut film, Ishaqzaade, Parineeti has appeared in a plethora of films, none of which have been commercially successful. However, Code Name Tiranga may mark a turning point in her career, despite its seemingly thin plot—the same premise has been used in many Bollywood spy films.
The first half of the film zips by with an intriguing premise and mission for the protagonist, and the intermission block hooks the audience to watch the second half. However, while the second half is good for a while, the pace dips in the third act with love scenes, and the action blocks are merely fireworks.
Although the film’s well-choreographed action sequences provide a visual feast for fans of the genre, its central theme of patriotism falls flat and undermines the film’s effectiveness as a whole.
Parineeti’s performances as the courageous RAW agent Durga and Ismat are commendable, yet she falls short in the dramatic moments. Music superstar Harrdy Sandhu made his acting debut, and while he did alright as Dr. Mirza Ali, he seemed awkward and unnatural in front of the camera the entire time. In contrast, Sharad Kelkar’s performance as Omar Khalid was excellent, and it was refreshing to see him in such a different type of role.
It appears that Ribhu Dasgupta is still in the same terrorism trance since he somewhat managed in engaging the audience with Code Name Tiranga, despite the fact that his previous picture, The Girl on the Train, starring Parineeti, was a flop.
Technically, Code Name Tiranga is only so-so; while the cinematography by Tribhuvan Babu Sadineni is partly good and a few scenes were so horrible to watch on screen, the visual effects by Anuj Deshpande are not up to the mark (helicopters look like cartoons), the songs by Jaidev Kumar and Vipin Patwa didn’t resonate and the background score could have been much stronger.
Code Name Tiranga is a spy action thriller that fans of the genre should check out at least once.
