Movie Info

Shiva is a small time conman in love with Priya, a pretty girl whom he met at a wedding he wasn't invited to. Into this picture perfect world enters six year old Neha who inexplicably believes Shiva to be her dad! And if this wasn't bad enough, Shiva also becomes the object of a series of life threatening attacks by a gang of deadly criminals who seem to know something he doesn't. While trying desperately to save his life and love, Shiva stumbles upon a deadly secret. A secret that will take him to a small town in Bihar; a town terrorized by a ruthless politician and the mafia he controls; a town whose inhabitants only hope for redemption is...Shiva! -- (C) UTV

Critic Reviews for Rowdy Rathore

All Critics (6) | 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?

Rowdy Rathore beats you to a pulp, cinematically. It's a relentless assault that kicks in as soon as the credit titles roll.

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.
