Out Of Bullets. ♦ 41%
2 December 2013 | by (the Entertainment Capital of India) – See all my reviews

With only the climax decorating itself as a savior, Tigmanshu Dhulia disappoints, big time. With accordance to what his movies have been flaunting lately, Bullett Raja lies nowhere near and when even the cast cannot help the film, it can be only best described as "below average."

Starting off with an instant bonhomie between Saif Ali Khan & Jimmy Sheirgill, the plot is about a duo fighting for politicos. Then they outmatch everybody in their line of work and eventually try to salvage their existence when adversaries kick in. What the writers have tried to do here is take up an underworld topic which has been sampled hundreds of times before, and mix it up with glam & emotions and send it out in a twisty plot. The output? Nothing much entertaining, but not boring either.

The performances are good and the casting, thank heavens, apt for an action film, but use of unnecessary songs and dialogs which feel like they were created out of insomnia just won't work anymore. It is high time I ask the question to the makers that how long should I bear this stupidity and not expect something new & fresh?

Yes, this film goes out of bullets even before the intermission and just so to remind who the film is by, we have a wonderful climax worth watching. But, then again, there is nothing new. For crying out loud, Bullett Raja is an utter disappointment by the man who can do much, much better. (What was Vidhyut Jamwwal doing here?)

BOTTOM LINE: A bullet-infested drama with a shallow plot under the disguise of heavy action. Not recommended! Wait for DTH and check out the climax, per se.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
