plot

Bullett Raja is the story of a common man, Raja Mishra, who transforms into a dreaded gangster of the Hindi heartland. A victim of the system and chained by it, Raja's life changes as he takes on those that rule and shakes the very foundations of the nexus of the police, the government, and the industrialists. As he rises and...more

Verdict

“Bullet Raja is your typical masala entertainer which may disappoint Dhulia's fans. The fast paced film is let down by an elaborate script and bad songs. A one time watch for its humour and decent performances.”

Bullett Raja, which director Tigmanshu Dhulia describes as his homage to the Masala cinema of the 70’s, is a tribute that doesn’t so much acknowledge its distance from the past. What Dhulia offers here isn’t a look in retrospect at the cinema of yore but a reverent reenactment of the same. Even the humour in Bullett Raja arises not out of cheeky references (a la Om Shanti Om) or irreverent aggrandization (a la Tashan) of the essential tropes that formed the cinema of the bygone era, but from old-school punch-lines with which the hero amusingly takes jabs at his nemeses. Much part of Bullett Raja brims with nuttiness, but the problem is that the film doesn’t revel in it. Every setpiece is rendered with a Tarantino-esque twist, but the absurdity is never allowed to create an impact. It’s in too much of a hurry to cut away to the next setpiece, which would turn out to be just as desultory as the previous one. The film, with random clues thrown in, teases at the possibility of the hero Raja Mishra (Missra, since Dhulia is a stickler for dialects) building up to be a mythical outlawed-vigilante legend (“Brahman Bhookha toh Sudama, rootha toh Raavan”), there’s even a striking image of him wearing a shawl made iconic by Leone-Eastwood westerns, but nothing is made out of it. It’s a pity, because the film tries to blend vastly diverse iconic genres to an effect that is more detrimental than cumulative; and most of it sounds as interesting on paper as it’s bland in its current form. And I say “most of…” because there’s Abbas-Mustan too, in there somewhere.
