Rush is about the muddle in the news world and how does the life of a crime reports is torn apart in the big bad world of news business. The story revolves around the editor-in-chief of a crime news channel, where writers endorse products and cops abuse reporters for not providing ample information.
Little did Sam Grover, crime reporter of Pulse 365, anticipate that when he interviews a sharpshooter, he will get sacked because the expose sends ripples in the organization? Lisa, who runs crime 24, offers Sam a job with perks and an affluent lifestyle he dreamt of. However, Crime 24, which is owned by Roger Khanna, wants to make his channel number one at any cost. He even arranges an in house system with which the channel can tap the phones of cops.
Rush deals with a story that's been milked dry over the years. The film neither arouses interest nor engages for few minutes. Not one actor bites fully into their role, Hashmi mostly perfunctory, while the ladies shed skin and appeal one and all with glamour.
The characters are clich\xe9d and uninspiring and moreover little do these characters put in any effort to make any difference.
Pritam's music is disappointing, while the camera shots are old-fashioned.
Rush, for most part is disappointing, but does have its share of slick moments of thrills and chills. But, unfortunately you don't want to spend your money and time for few brief moments of entertainment, do you?

Emraan Hashmi is the spine of Rush, playing a journalist who gets sucked into his ambitious boss's ring of crime. He speaks a lot, delivers a decent performance, even kisses and manages to srape through. So does the film itself, with moments that are gripping few and far in between.
A stark look TV jounralism, Rush is a story of how news channels have stopped waiting for news to happen and instead opting to make news themselves. Adtiya Pancholi plays a media barron who kills people as if they were flies all for the sake of breaking news. Emraan Hashmi , his reporter, is sucked into this web of generated crime along with Aditya's right hand person Neha Dhupia who takes a shine to the earnest reporter.
The movie has an interesting plot line, but doesnt manage to make for some engaging cinema. There are interesting chases and action sequences that grip your attention, but the very next scenes get so preachy and verbose that you are put off. Much like the news channels the film is talking about, there is a lot of shoo shaa but very less atcually being revealed either as a comment on the industry or even as a story per se.
Neha Dhupia is glamorous and plays her part decently well. Aditya is hilarious as the boss and one just cannot take his role seriously. Emraan does his best to push his own boundaries, the push though is too subtle to actually register. Passable music, some good action and a yawn worthy time is had by all. Watch it if you have to.
