Undercover Stuntman
18 October 2015 | by snaidu422See all my reviews

An IB chief who handovers an important mission concerning national security (or so as he believes) to an ordinary stuntman who is in love with is daughter.

A dumb heroine who does not even get to put 2 and 2 together even though her boyfriend on numerous occasions says things, like shooting, lights, director, stuntmen, bathas and still believes he is a policeman and not a stuntman and at every impromptu occasions wears dresses made of ribbons and breaks into a song with him.

A Villain who organizes a mass killing in a restaurant and blames it on Al-qaida just to silence two people.

A IB officer who goes to Afghanistan on an undercover mission and sets up a barber shop there and still the IB manages to have him in the department.

A hero who has nothing to do with Bruce lee except a tattoo of him on his hand and still prefers people calling him Bruce Lee.

The above is a list of characters of the tollywood flick "BRUCELEE- THE FIGHTER". I guess this would be enough to make a judgment on how the filmmakers take the intelligence of the audience for granted. Coming to the story (if you can call it that) Karthik is an intelligent student as a kid who sacrifices his education so that his elder sister Kavya (Kriti Kharbanda) can get to study and become an IAS officer. His father Ramchander Rao (Rao Ramesh) has enough financial capacity to educate only one of the kids. Karthik becomes a stuntman and for some whacko reason people call him Bruce Lee.

Enters a dumb girl Riya(Rakul Preet Singh) who wants to get married only to a police officer and seeing Karthik in a police costume beating a goon mistakes him for the real one and designs a computer game on him as the lead character (?????).

Karthik and Riya fall in love. Riya on numerous occasions manages to pull Karthik into situations where he has to behave as a police officer and actually fight hardcore criminals.

On one of his escapades, Karthik sends a notorious gang leader Deepak Raj (Arun Vijay) into a coma and his father Jayaraj (Sampath Raj) screams vengeance.

Now Jayaraj is legally wedded to Vasundhara (Nadia) whose son is getting married to Kavya and Deepak is his secret legal wife (???) Malini (Tisca Chopra)'s son.

When Karthik learns about Jayaraj's double life, he decides to play a trick like all Sreenu Vaitla's heroes and lands up in his house and using IB officer Suzuki Subramanyam (Brahmandam) as a scapegoat manages to uncover his evil deeds to Vasundhara.

Phew! That's what the movie has to offer people, if this is one side of it, the other thing which actually makes us laugh out loud is the reason why Chiranjeevi makes an appearance in this flick. Comeon people! You don't rescue a girl and then leave her in the villain's hideout while you go horse-riding with your pal, that's exactly what Ramcharan and Chiranjeevi do.

The one positive factor of the movie are the dances, Ramcharan is a good dancer and it would have worked better if they had named the movie "micheal Jackson" or "Prabhudeva" or "birju Maharaj" instead of Bruce Lee. The guy has a single expression throughout the movie, be it love, anger or ecstasy.

Rakul Preet Singh cannot act to save her life. The less said about her the better.

Kriti Kharbanda has nothing much to do except cry, run and hug her brother in every scene she is in.

Sampath Raj is good as the suave villain who leads a double life, if only his character had been worked on a little more, we would had a real dark villain, but alas!

Music by Thaman is average and not a single song is worth remembering.

Srinu Vaitla's direction is pathetic, he only uses his own movie making template which he has been using for a decade and every movie of his is the same.

His proclamation is loud and clear "no matter what, I will not change. I will continue making the same story with different lead actors".

I would give it 3 on 10, just for the well choreographed dance sequences, would I recommend this to anyone? Please embrace the plague but not this movie
