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.
Ridiculous and undeniable, it's a punchy cartoon, rightly confident of its power to entertain. Why resist?
Rowdy Rathore wastes nearly an hour setting up plot points that should have taken no more than fifteen minutes, and the film suffers for it.
Rowdy Rathore beats you to a pulp, cinematically. It's a relentless assault that kicks in as soon as the credit titles roll.
The film's an unabashed, gunpowder-hot, sambar-spiced star-vehicle which runs along energetically most of the time because [of] its star Akshay Kumar.
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.
Predictably, Rowdy goes about setting things straight. But he takes way too long, making the film stretch on like a tasteless wad of chewing gum.
It's two-and-a-half hours of relentless comedy, action and drama. Most of it requires clinical skills of suspension of disbelief. But believe you me, in the end it's well worth the effort.
Although Deva knows how to handle these two strands well, the emotional scenes do not tug at your heart strings.
A run-of-the-mill action drama that entertains as much as it irritates, if not less. Tolerable stuff, though.
