7 October 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Based on the real life incident of Naval Officer K.M. Nanavati and businessman Prem Ahuja, 'Rustom', sadly, is a disappointing courtroom-drama, that lacks a solid Screenplay. The film had tremendous potential, but it unfortunately, never soars.

'Rustom' Synopsis: In 1959, a decorated naval officer (Akshay Kumar) is accused of murdering his wife's lover.

'Rustom' begins very well, but as soon as the protagonist turns himself in for the murder of his wife's lover, the narrative drops. The first-hour is still fair, but the second-hour lacks the power to keep you hooked. The sequences in the courtroom aren't fiery enough & that's the biggest problem with 'Rustom'. It arrests, but only intermediately!

Vipul K Rawal's Screenplay needed to be stronger & far more fiery. Tinu Suresh Desai's Direction is alright. Cinematography & Editing are decent. Art & Costume Design are average.

Performance-Wise: Akshay Kumar as Rustom is earnest, but he's done better. Illeana D'Cruz as Akshay's unfaithful wife, is in fine form this time. Arjan Bajwa as the villain, is okay. Esha Gupta doesn't work. Of the supporting cast, Pawan Malhotra, Usha Nadkarni & Kumud Mishra leave the strongest impression.

On the whole, 'Rustom' fails to capitalize its potential.
