Plot: The epic action-drama is about the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.

Rush Review - surprisingly not just about brawnSep 20, 2013NewsA typical moto sport film more often than not is all about style and brawn. The most stylised larger than life genre of films, Rush comes from a lineage that has mostly been about flashy men showing off their rough and tough sides, fake positioning and loads of petrol being burnt on the tarmac.    Surprisingly, Rush has all of that, and some solid material to appeal to those inclined towards something with gravitas. It is a pleasant race to the finish that entertains and makes you think.    Chronicling the famous rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, particularly in the Formula one world championship  of 1976, Rush delves deeper into the psyche of these two rivals, stark opposites of each other in their style, thinking and temparament. Hunt is the rockstar party animal whose looks and manner spell super stardom and panache, typically associated with the sport. Lauda on the other hand is the analytical sportaman who does not just believe in pumping up the gas but actually soaking in the bigger picture and strategise with minimal risks. Both Hemsworth and Daniel get under the skins of their respective characters, giving us more than just cardboard good looking sportsmen on screen.    Infact a lot of the movie actually slickly combines a big ticket production house sensiilities with those of an indie film where emotions, psyhces and relationship dynamics are explored in the background of fast cars and races. An attempt, successful one at that, is made to take a look at the underlying tensions and pressures of the sportsmen's lives, both from their perosnal follies and choices, as well as those airisng from the nature of the sport itself and all the associated hullaballu.    Rush takes its time to get in to the act though, with the first half hour or so coming across as incoherent and trying too hard. Yet , it then picks up threads and pace, moulding gradually into a coherent seamless analysis of the two lead characters and their impact on teh sport as well as vice a versa. Take this adrenaline rush without fail, it is a wonderful way to start a good weekend of cinema at the big screen.     Ameet Bhuvan Rush Review - surprisingly not just about brawn Sep 20, 2013
