R...Rajkumar review

Story :

The plot of 'R...Rajkumar' revolves around R...Rajkumar (Shahid Kapoor) whose mission in life is to kill a rival drug dealer. In the process R...Rajkumar meets Chanda (Sonakshi Sinha) who is the drug dealer's niece. R...Rajkumar falls in love with Chanda and the story complicates with more battering and violence.

Analysis :


The 'R' in the title 'R...Rajkumar' was originall meant to be Rambo. But it was not used due to copyright issues. Now it's Romeo. Actually it would be apt to term Shahid Kapoor as road romeo in the film as the attire and act of R...Rajkumar is no less. He has a head full of streaked hair, stubble, swinging fists and puckered lips. He thrusts his pelvis while mouthing crass dialogues. His idea of romance is to harass his love interest into submission. And revenge for him means to batter the enemy till he's covered in blood. Sonakshi in the role of Chanda looks repitative. She must have herself been confused which film she is shooting, for the set looks similar to all her previous movies.The film's cast also includes Ashish Vidyarthi, Sonu Sood, and Telugu actor Srihari. Sonu Sood as the typical village thakur who kills hapless villagers and has a love-interest in Sonakshi. Ashish Vidyarthi is the drug dealer with whom Shahid has to take revenge. But it's not clear why Vidyarthi appears topless so many times, a sight that is not pleasant. The second half has nothing but mindless violence and battering of the goons. The only thing to look forward in 'R...Rajkumar' is the song 'gandi baat', that too has been shown in trailers.

Performance :

R...Rajkumar review

Shahid Kapoor in the role of R...Rajkumar is unimpressive, he tries hard to emulate the easy charm of Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar but fails miserably. Sonakshi Sinha plays the love interest of R...Rajkumar. She pouts and swings her waist like she has done in all her films in her brief career in bollywood. Sonu Sood as the typical 'thakur' of bollywood has a menacing presence. Ashish Vidyarthi as Sonakshi's uncle and the drug dealer plays the role of a typical villian.

Final Word:Go for it if you love crass dialogues and the song 'gandi baat'.

R...Rajkumar Releases on 6th Dec 2013
