The only reason this movie is so what good, is because of the average story.

Super funny in a quirky way.

Kumar takes up the superhero cop role, adding a spin of mistaken identity and evil twin fun. Sonakshi Sinha is stunning, Kumar is funny and the choreography is excellent. The effects aren't great in parts, but for $7m it's impressive. "Ridiculous and undeniable, it's a punchy cartoon, rightly confident of its power to entertain. Why resist?" Directed by Benny Lava! Fans of Singham, Dabaang 1 and 2 should love this.

Cheap comedy, cheap action and nothing more.

Rowdy Rathore directed by actor-cum-director Prabhu Deva. Starring Akshay Kumar (one of my top favorite actors from Indian cinema - he has established himself as most sought-after actor who has gained popularity in comedy/action/drama/romance roles). Akshay plays a petty street-thief who commits intelligent theft; he is mistaken for most-feared assistant superintendent of the police (ASP) by crime-syndicate working in a village. From the start film looked promising but at near end it kinda strayed away from the serious-tone of somewhat good plot.

NOTE: Some exaggerating impossibilities of using physics in wrong way, which is simply the criteria of general population in South of India to watch movies where actors perform over-exaggeration of stunts e.g. kicking a jeep so hard that it smashes to ground and passengers flying off it. This is the remake of South film; although Akshay is not mainly into these sort of movies, however he succumbed to requests from the director who himself comes from the South region - Akshay Kumar hails from popular mainstream Bollywood.

Rowdy Rathore ‚" Pfftttt

Remaking a masterpiece is stupidity as people come up with lot of expectations and their own interpretations. But remaking a regional masala film in to Bollywood and not getting it right is idiotic. Funny part is the director hails from South and the film rakes in a decent moola. It either gets to show that everything masala ridden just sells or being idiotic is a rage.

Plot:
Shiva (Akshay Kumar) and 2G (Paresh Ganatra) are a petty thief duo on the streets of Mumbai. A girl from Patna, Paro (Sonakshi Sinha) catches his eye balls and Shiva, in turn, makes her fall for him through his usual gimmicks. A tricky theft attempt tags Shiva to a little girl called Chinki. At the same time a group of mustache bearing muscular men are on the hunt for Shiva and try to attack him in vain. Who is the girl? How is she related to Shiva? What is the other side of the coin? ‚" Answers to these questions take us through the life of Vikram Rathore (Akshay Kumar), Shiva‚(TM)s look alike, commercially culminating in to a comedy based revenge drama. All is well (looks like it).

Analysis:
The movie is a remake of super hit telugu film ‚Vikramarkudu‚?. No huge changes have been made as part of the original story, script, screenplay and feel factor of the film. But still it falls flat in terms of entertainment.

Akshay tries his best hand at comedy but is no match to his southern counterpart ‚" clearly gets to show how southern heroes can steal the show especially with comic relief. The side kick in the original film is a legendary actor and so there is no comparison whatsoever. Only main thing they could have got right and still failed miserably was the heroine. No mention is needed for all the other characters.

Akshay Kumar looked old for the role and his performance in both the characters was downright mediocre. Sonakshi has nothing to offer and she was lot better in Dabaang. Nassar as the main antagonist is nothing less than being slapstick and goofy. There is no absolute need to mention about the music.

Tail piece:
I did not watch the whole movie but was bent upon writing this review just for the heck of it and for the first time in my life I am suffering from ‚writer‚(TM)s block‚?. So the film not only has anything to watch but also offers us nothing to scribble. I am happy for the producers that it‚(TM)s making lot of money.

Just too mindless. The Salman Khan genre movies are fine to a point, but this movie takes it to an extreme with its 1980s like plot.
