Critic Reviews for Rowdy Rathore

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Big, dumb and pretty good fun once the flat first hour is over, Bollywood masala Rowdy Rathore makes the grade on the strength of Akshay Kumar's charismatic dual perfs as a supercop killed on duty and a lookalike thief who takes his place.

Forgettable fun.

Ridiculous and undeniable, it's a punchy cartoon, rightly confident of its power to entertain. Why resist?

The very funny and charming Sonakshi Sinha, by the way, plays Shiva's romantic interest. But the love story seems much less important than the mayhem.

Although Deva knows how to handle these two strands well, the emotional scenes do not tug at your heart strings.

Audience Reviews for Rowdy Rathore


A run-of-the-mill action drama that entertains as much as it irritates, if not less. Tolerable stuff, though.

Super Reviewer

Meaningless, vulgar, stupid, impossible, crude, senseless, demeaning and total waste of time. The movie has no redeeming feature. I wonder how anyone can decide to make a movie like this. The only explanation I have for a movie like this being made is that a certain segment of Indian population enjoys these movie like laborers, three wheel drivers and tangewalas. I am glad Americans do not go for Indian movies. It would be pretty awkward answering questions an American is likely to ask after seeing this movie. Do not go for this movie.
