Raftaar Singh (Akshay) spends his days whiling his time away dancing and jumping through fire hula-hoops at fairs in Bassi Pathana in Punjab. While his father (Yograj Singh) is tired of his ways, his mother (Rati Agnihotri) caters to his appetite with home-cooked jalebis, before the former asks Raftaar to choose a path for himself. Either get married to a certain Sweety, or move to Goa and work under his father's friend. Considering the first option unimaginable, Raftaar chooses the second.
Evokes laughter at places due to enjoyable performance and witty dialogues
Director Mr. Prabhu Deva has some unique sense of weird shot taking, which looks fresh and interesting some how. In this film, it is in plenty. Story is very routine. Approach in screenplay is good. Dialogues by Chintan Gandhi is very good. It is one of the major plus point of movie. Especially the dialogues of English to Hindi translation are very good but for laughter, audience must have little bit familiar with English lingo, like moron, kick a*s but surprisingly, how can one imagine that any person in India would not understand the meaning of I love you, which is exaggerated a bit. Even illiterate person understands at least, sorry, thank you, I love you. Scene like, walking in sleep is so old but good performance easily creates humor. Girl triggering the remote control bomb, while standing on that, is comic due to timing and placing. They have tried to insert some emotional angle rather than love, like searching her mother, over caring mother, angry strict father but most of the scenes fall flat. Major drawback of this film is its last half an hour, which is slow and boring. No humor, no intrigue value. Scenes in climax are badly stretched. Performance wise Akshay Kumar is very impressive. He has justified the character very well, with correct expression and emotion. Leading girl Amy Jackson is very good. She never goes overboard and shines in action scenes. Surprise factor is Lara Dutta, her comedy timing and expressions are just fantastic. She succeeds to create laughter in most of her scenes. Actor, #ArfiLamba and #AnilMange, who played lead male friends are very good. They lend apt support. Music is just foot tapping without any melody or meaning.
