It is true that the era of biopic is passing in world cinema. But, in spite of this, films should be made on such people who have done so in one field or the other which changed the future of a large community. One such name in the world of sports has been that of John Paul Vincent Vaccaro, whom people fondly call Sunny. Sunny laid the foundation for players’ participation in the business of sports. This is the man who convinced Michael Jordan, the greatest player in the world of basketball and sports, to become the face of the Nike company by going outside all the rules. The result of this man’s efforts is that Michael Jordan earns about $400 million every year just from his share in the sale of Air Jordan, a series of Nike products bearing his name. Air, which released on Friday on Amazon Prime Video, is an inspiring story of reaching this feat. After a long time, such a film has been seen on OTT, once you start watching it, you will not want to wake up leaving it in the middle.
Story of competition of shoe companies
When the film ‘Air’ begins, it tells that in the year 1984, the market share of the shoe maker Nike is continuously decreasing. There is a lot of ruckus in the company that they do not have such a well-known face that can attract the youth towards their products. As much as the marketing budget of the company is, efforts are on to make three to four emerging players as ambassadors of the company. That’s why Sunny Vaccaro proposes to spend this entire budget in signing Michael Jordan, an emerging player. Nike management is infuriated at his proposal that Sunny go out to visit Michael Jordan’s parents. Whatever happens after this, it must be seen by every person who is trying to achieve something in life on his own. The film tells that success is not achieved by living within limits and if success is water, then one has to take risks.
Affleck and Damon pair up
The stories of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s friendship have been very famous in Hollywood. The two are here together in this film and this is the first time Ben Affleck is directing his friend Damon. Together they won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the film ‘Goodwill Hunting’. Both also worked in this film. The two came together for the film ‘The Last Duel’ two years back. Both co-wrote this film as well. Affleck won his second Oscar for Best Picture for his directorial debut Argo, while Damon has been nominated for an Oscar three more times for his performance. The film ‘Air’ is also the first film of the two friends’ production company Artists Equity.
Very inspiring story
The film ‘Air’ is a biopic of sorts on Sunny Vaccaro, who laid the foundation for sportsmanship in the world of sports by bringing Michael Jordan to Nike. And, Michael Jordan’s mother took up the responsibility of explaining this to the sports industry. The dialogue between Matt Damon as Sunny Vaccaro and Viola Davis as Michael’s mother is one of the most enjoyable moments of the film. These scenes are not only the nurturer of faith in humanity, but these scenes are also indicative of a man’s strong faith as well as his need to stay connected to the land. Sunny Vaccaro is convinced that sharing the future he sees of Michael Jordan with his parents could put his job at risk, but he also knows that the same rules go after a man becomes successful. Goes what he broke while walking on this path. When Oscar winner Viola Davis insists on negotiating a better future for her son, there is no arrogance on her face. She simply comes across as a mother who is proud of what her son is capable of and knows that his son deserves it.
The film will rock the Oscars
The film boasts a stellar ensemble cast including Jason Batesman, Chris Messina, Marlon Wayans, Chris Tucker, Matthew Maher, Gustaf Skarsgård and Julius Tennon, and Ben Affleck himself as Nike CEO Phil Knight. Affleck made an amazing film ‘Air’ with this amazing cast. Though a very mediocre web series ‘Dahaad’ has been released in Hindi this week on Prime Video, but a film like ‘Air’ on this OTT will make your weekend. The film has moved to OTT just a month after its theatrical release and is set to make a splash at the Oscars and its first Golden Globe Awards next year. The film is also technically amazing. Its entire background has been prepared according to its time. The cinematography is panoramic and the songs are very emotional and inspiring!
