Rowdy Rathore - the immensely hyped return of Akshay Kumar as Action BAAP - delivers what it promised - a Mass Action fiesta with a heavy dose of South Indian which now loved in Noth as well Masalas.

The story is about Shiva (Akshay Kumar), a small 'Rowdy' who charms & steals not only wealth but also every ladies heart in a blink. Shiva falls in love with Priya (Sonakshi Sinha), a pretty and smart girl from Patna. Into this enters six year old Neha who believes Shiva to be her father -Vikram Rathore . The further movie deals with what changes and responsibilities does this little girl brings to his life and how he becomes the only hope for people of a small town in Bihar to get rid of a ruthless MLA Nasser and his mafia goons.

Those who have seen the original either Vikramarkudu or Siruthai may find this one less appealing provided you are not an Akshay Fan. But for the majority of its core target audience this will be a perfect entertainment treat post IPL season that everyone was looking for.Its the perfect blend of comedy,over the top action, songs, dance, dialogues etc., everything that we were expecting from such a movie
