"Rocky Handsome" is a treat for action film lovers. Well executed action sequences and death-defying stunts will keep you engaged.
25 March 2016 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

"How far would you go to save the person closest to you" ?? A remake of a Korean film "Man From Nowhere, "Rocky Handsome" is a taut thriller that is going to keep you on the edge of seat without giving a chance to blink your eyes.

"Rocky Handsome" is a story of an unforgiving man who embarks on a journey to avenge when the only person he cares about is kidnapped and taken away from him.

From the director of "Force" (Hindi) and "Drishyam", Nishikant Kamat does a fabulous job in holding your attention right from the beginning till the end. The first half is pretty straight forward until the main drama unfolds when the kidnapping of little girl takes place. From here onward, the drama-thriller is full of well- executed action choreography with each scene giving you goosebumps. If the first half is a drama story, the second half is actual plot where the suspense begins to unfold with nail-biting moments and jaw-dropping scenes. The background fight scene during the song "Teri Toh Yaad Sataye" is one of the major highlight of the film. Even the climax scene has been well-executed.

On the flip side, the story is pretty average with nothing new to offer along with loose screenplay which could have been crispier. Action scenes is the highlight of the film and deserves brownie points for keeping you engaged. Editing is good. Cinematography capturing the dark underworld sequences appropriately. Art direction is nice. Songs are tuneful. Performance-wise, it is John Abraham all the way. Though his expressions are same throughout the film, he carries the film with his well-defined sculpted body and good performance. Nishant Kamat, first time as a actor, does well as villain. The child actor Divya Chalwad does justice to her role. Shruti Hassan is wasted in a special appearance.

Overall, "Rocky Handsome" is a treat for action film lovers. Well executed action sequences and death-defying stunts will keep you engaged. Good 3/5
