The intentions are noble but such subjects need to be much bolder and hard-hitting to leave an impact.
24 November 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

At times, few films rightly and nobly bring forward a burning social issue, pointing towards the questionable faulty structure of our society, giving us some food for thought. But sadly, they are not made with that finesse and are not able to deliver the message that impactfully as required to reach the targeted common man. Evidently RAJJO remains one of those well intentioned films, made on a bold subject of 'giving the forced-in prostitutes' their respectable place back in the society, defying the set rules of a Hindi film. Yet, it is not able to leave any kind of solid impression on the viewers, due to its lazy screenplay and passionless, ineffective portrayal of a relevant issue.

Supported by some extremely talented names such as Mahesh Manjrekar, Prakash Raj, Jaya Prada (a cameo), Vipin Sharma, Uttam Singh, Binod Pradhan & more, the film should have been much better lead by Kangna playing the women-centric role of sex-worker. However, director Vishwas Patil is not able to materialize on his subject and cast as desired, resulting in a pretty below average film quite unfortunately. It begins with the Mumbai 'Kothas' raising the expectation levels, reminding you of films like Mahesh Bhatt's SADAK which had Pooja Bhatt, in somewhat similar role along with Sanjay Dutt. But the un-happening first half completely ruins the initial excitement and then few better scenes post interval are also not able to bring it back till the end.

Music, which ideally should be a highlight of films with such themes, is another big disappointment here and so is the writing or dialogue department of the film too, giving you nothing above than the routine. There is an improved Kangna in action along with the confident Paras Arora enacting with the big names with an ease. Plus the director also tries to express his storyline without taking the help of any objectionable language, abusive or vulgarity. So, no doubt the film had a very commendable and noble thought behind its making looking at the final product, but I only wish they had worked more on its script, music, dialogues and hard-hitting element in particular, which is a must for such socially relevant subjects to leave a lasting impact.
