A Letdown!
25 March 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

An adaptation of the 2010 Korean film The Man from Nowhere, Director Nishikant Kamat's 'Rocky Handsome' is a tiresome experience. Despite some super action & John Abraham's sincerity, this adaptation lacks heart & energy.

'Rocky Handsome' Synopsis: When a drug mafia abducts an eight-year old, her dearest man sets out on a mission with a view of returning the compliment.

'Rocky Handsome' fails to make you feel for its characters, that being the hero himself & the innocent kid, for whom he goes on a rampage in order to save her life. And its the Writing to be blamed. The connect between its principal characters is missing & that acts as a major minus point. Also, the narrative lacks the energy one expects from a slick action flick such as this.

Ritesh Shah's Screenplay is bland. Kamat's Direction is strictly okay. He's not in form this time. Cinematography is well-done. Editing is iffy. Action-Sequences are superbly executed, although they are extremely violent. The faint-hearted should stay away! A Special Mention for the nicely done Background Score.

Performance-Wise: John Abraham gives his all & exceeds to a large extend. He looks like an unbeatable mean machine & also does reasonably well in the dramatic/emotional portions. Its the Script that lets him down. Baby Diya Chalwad is cute. Shruti Hassan appears in a cameo. Kamat, who plays the chief villain here, is just about passable. Sharad Kelkar is terrific as the honest cop. Teddy Maurya as Kamat's evil brother, is unbearable.

On the whole, 'Rocky Handsome' squanders its potential. A Missed Opportunity!
