R..Rajkumar promises to deliver but is letdown by wafer-thin 2nd half. Watch it for Shahid.
14 December 2013 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

There is a overdose of masala films in 2013 - Police giri, Chennai Express , Boss, Bullet Raja , Singh Saab The Great and now R..Rajkumar. Good news is that R..Rajkumar is better than above movie ... bad news is that it is yet another typical action-melodrama with nothing new to offer.

R..Rajkumar (played by Shahid Kapoor) is a fearless and daring thug who lands up in the lawless village and joins a drug-dealer's gang, Shivraj( played by Sonu Sood). Enters Chanda and our hero is head-over- heels in love with her. Things becomes ugly when Shivraj also starts liking and war is declared between the two to marry Chanda.

After giving of string of masala films like Wanted , Rowdy Rathore and Ramaiya Vastavaiya , Prabhudeva is back with yet another popcorn entertainment with strong first half but diluted second half. The film begins with a bang by incorporating scenes like Shahid Kapoor saving Sonu Sood's life , the dance number in the song "Gandi Baat", the chemistry and comic humor between Shahid and Sonakshi. However, the film goes down the rabbit hole and is completely lost in the dark in the later part. Screenplay is weak. Cinematography is amazing. Art direction is good. Background score is better. Songs like "Gandi Baat and Saree ke fall se" are catchy. Shahid steals the thunder from the show. He is superb in acting , dancing and even doing action scenes. This film should prove his mettle. Sonakshi Sinha repeats herself. Sonu Sood is good.

Overall, R..Rajkumar promises to deliver but is letdown by wafer-thin 2nd half. Watch it for Shahid. Average 2.5/5
