Director: Prabhu Deva
Producer: Viki Rajani and Sunil Lulla
Star cast: Shahid Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonu Sood, Ashish Vidyarthi and Srihari
“When love takes its route to the heart, a lean looking goon gets stuffed with power laying about hundred baddies hurt on the earth.” This is the central theme of the movie released today, i.e. R…Rajkumar. Director Prabhu Deva, since hails from South India, has apparently entice the entire movie in typical south Indian style, whether its pertaining to costumes, dialogues, style or songs. Perhaps ‘what’s in trend should never be abandoned’ might be the assumption of Prabhu Deva.
Movie R..Rajkumar narrates diverse junctions passed in the life of Rajkumar, the protagonist (Shahid Kapoor) as being an aimless bad-boy who indulges in illicit practice of drug dealing under a drug-magnet Shivraj (Sonu Sood). But as Sonakshi, his lady-love, steps into his life as Chanda (Sonakshi Sinha) transformation begins to trigger in his life. Now, the goon has one motto and that is to win the hand of his lady-charm anyhow. The audience does not take much time to predict the entire plot of the movie since it is habitual of witnessing the likewise story line-up for few months. No sooner the watch-dogs anticipate the entry of a barrier in the way of ringing bells of merriment, the drug cartel Shivraj begins to put barriers in the away of his love-blooming.
However, Prabhu Deva’s ‘R.. Rajkumar’ has a fusion of action, humour, songs and romance but the intelligent viewers would surely spend their money on the movie tickets that satisfy their want of getting amused with something extraordinary. They desire to be left their every bone tickling or to immerse into the pool of emotions but with the amazement factor. To the worst, the movie lacks all those surprising elements. The story has a battle-field enticed for the drug mafias. Shivraj, a drug cartel, under Ajit Taaka (Srihari) does not want to let his ace-card (Rajkumar) take advancement to Chanda (Sonakshi) having caged into the charm of other drug mafia’s niece. Hence, the battle outburst and the movie moves as the South Indian movies of 90s with lots of bang and boom involving mafias and baddies amidst loud scores from the background.
Comedy is appearing out of breathe in the movie as no crack of laughter gets successful in winning the heart of people but for sure, the viewer ,who would be rapturous delighted, would be acclaimed with bravo..
Shahid’s lean and fit body manifests contra to not –at- all in perfect figured Sonakshi which is also very hard for spectators to digest the pair. The punching power of Shahid looks awfully superfluous that can knock and slam down hundred in a go. The only flavor of the film magnetizing the viewers is the performance of Sonu Sood which is beyond par.
The sound and music is average, except one or two as Gandi Baat Gandi Gandi Baat and Sari Ke Fall Sa.
Perhaps, mass would clap like thundering in the hall but want of something extraordinary does not let the theatre be mobbed with unlimited public.
