Khiladi Rathore In Action!!

ROWDY RATHORE (Movie Review)

ONE LINER:

Khiladi Rathore In Action!!

EXPECTATIONS:

Expectations were high initially as Akshay returning to action after a long time, produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Prabhudeva directing His next venture after Wanted..

VIEWS:

Well this has again been a wrong promo policy. When the theatrical came and then songs promo came and then other promos came the film seemed to be over the top and cheap and below standard in my views. But after watching the movie I'll say that its not the case.. AK film KHATTA MEETHA suffered due to bad promo policiy too as it showed it as comedy but it was a nice serious movie. First 30 minutes of the movie are totally below average.. as the comic scenes at that moment does not create any impact nor the love angle is well shown.. but after 30 minutes the Movie goes on a high and high from when the girl came and emotional and serious RR starts.. then it creates a pure masala entertainer movie impact till end.

STORY & SCRIPT:

Story is old but the script is quite good.. Love Angle should have been scripted well.

DIRECTION:

Prabhudeva starts bad but after 30 minutes get the grip and never loose it till the end.. Only the Love scenes could have been directed well than he did..

MUSIC:

Music by SAJID WAJID is totally disappointingly average. TERA ISHQ and CHAMMAK CHALLO are the better tracks. In my view CHINTA CHINTA is totally poor song and its repeatedly use seems useless. Dhadang Dhadang and Aa Re Pritam just OK. Music could have been much better than this so as same for the background music.. it should have been better.

CASTING & ACTING:

AKSHAY KUMAR came back to his favourite genre Action and he has acted very very well in RR .. He is the most Positive thing of RR. He played role of Vikram Rathore with high and role of Shiva great to with his bravo comic timings.. He Makes RR watchable..

SONAKSHI SINHA has acted quite good. But her role is not well developed.

The character played by the girl of the daughter of VIKRAM RATHORE has acted very well .. She is superb.

YASHPAL SHARMA & GURDEEP KOHLI are good..

NASSAR as the antagonist is quite good.. really acted very well. the actor played his brother is ordinary and so his son character.

MUSHTAQ KHAN has good comic moments and dialogues. Other actors are OK.

PARESH as AK friend is just OK.

PLUSSES & MINUSES:

PLUSSES:

1. AKSHAY KUMAR's acting.

2. The emotional scenes.

3. The role of the girl.

4. Strong intermission. And strong post and pre intermission scenes.

MINUSSES:

1. First 30 minutes.

2. Music.

3. Background Music.

CONCLUSION:

Bare first 30 minutes and enjoy the remaining film as a great MASALA ENTERTAINER. AKSHAY KUMAR back in form..Wana Go for a Nice Dhisoom Dhisoom Entertaining Movie go for ROWDY RATHORE..

RATINGS: 3.75/5.
