Review Rowdy -TweetOpinion = After the humungous success of ROBOT in 2010, the makers are back with its sequel 2.O. This time, apart from Superstar Rajinikanth and Director Shankar, even actor Akshay Kumar, Producer – Director Karan Johar and actor Adil Hussain are also associated […]
Plot = The movie is a cinematic representation of a short story written by Rabindranath Tagore, titled ‘Kabuliwala’, with some minor twists. Here, Rehmat Khan (Danny Denzongpa) is a passionate BIOSCOPEWALA who frequently travels between India and Afghanistan for showing movies on his bioscope, to children, by charging them a nominal amount. In the process, he befriends a 5 year old girl Minnie Basu. But, suddenly, he stops visiting Minnie. And, after 20 long years he returns at Minnie’s House (Actress Geetanjali Thapa) who is now grown up. The movie then tracks his journey in flashback, trying to find the reason of his absence.
Opinion = The trailer of the movie was highly impressive, but unfortunately, the movie does not live up to the expectations. I believe there was no need of making a full-fledged feature film, for a linear and predictable storyline. A short film on the subject would have been conveyed the message more effectively. There are deliberate efforts to evoke emotions among the audiences, which have failed miserably. Due to its overtly elongated screenplay and unnecessary sub plots, I had to take a strong effort in sitting through and analyzing the proceedings of the movie. In my view, the movie is just a one – time watch.
Performances = This movie belongs to its protagonist. Watch it for witnessing a mind – boggling performance of actor Danny Denzongpa. He is the only reason for watching this movie. Actress Geetanjali Thapa has also given a very impressive performance. Potent actors like Adil Hussain, Tisca Chopra and Brijendra Kala got nothing productive at their disposal. The remaining cast was just okay in their performance.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Since it’s a debut movie of Director Deb Medhekar, I will be lenient in my approach in reviewing his work. He deserves this leverage. He is aware about the basics of film making, but needs to understand the nuances of a great cinema, in depth. The Production Design was at par with the requirement of the script. The title song was melodious and acted as a catalyst in conveying the intended message of the movie.
Rowdy Rating = 3 / 5
