“Although the movie doesn't do complete justice to the original Telugu blockbuster, it does have some funny dialogues and action sequences that will make you want to whistle! Rowdy Rathore is a one time watch.”

Salman has Dabangg, Ajay has Singham and now Akshay has RR. The film, already a success in multiple languages hits screens this weekend and has director Prabhudeva at the helm of affairs, following up on the much appreciated Wanted. Does RR pack a winning punch?
Its loud, its 80s, its filmi but the problem is, its just not entertaining enough.

Shiva (Akshay Kumar) is a comical crook who alongwith his right hand 2G pull of petty thefts. He falls in love with Neeraja (Sonakshi) and tells her the truth of his life. While everythings going along swimmingly, he lands up with a baby girl one fine day who calls him Papa.
Is she his daughter? Well, thats for you to find out.
Also, there is a parallel track of Vikram Rathore (Akshay Kumar) who fights in a lawless village and is a fearless cop (read:Dabangg). He tries to keep things in order, but they dont go as per plan.
Where these 2 cross paths and how their lives intertwine is what the film is all about.

The film isnt too long but by the end of it, you feel its a lifetime. The songs by Sajid-Wajid have 2 sureshot winners, Chinta ta & Dhadang.

Akshay Kumar does much better than he has recently. He nails both the parts but doesnt quite deliver a knockout performance.
Sonakshi Sinha moves from 8 dialogues in her first film to 13 in this one. But regardless of the fact that she has an inconsequential role, she is fiery, flaunts her earthy sex appeal & leaves a mark.

Director Prabhudeva is patchy. There are parts of the film which are simply awesome and parts which are terrible. The film tries too hard to mix a Dabangg with a Singham and fails on some level.
Had he stuck more to the Vikram Rathore angle, it would have been way more entertaining.

Alas, this film could have very well been a homerun but turns out to be just another retro masala entertainer. With obnoxious villains, forced humour & really really really loud audio, it will tire you out by the end of it. Watch it only if you like Akshay Kumar. This one could be a cable TV watch.
