Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = The movie is setup between 1795 to 1806 (the pre – independence era), where the province of Raunakpur is under the command of a British Ruler, named John Clive (Lloyd Owen). To free the natives of Raunakpur from the undeserved ruling […]

Review Rowdy -TweetReview = After ROBOT 2.O, this one was the next highly anticipated movie of 2018. And, like the former, even this trailer is not up to the mark. The movie looks like a routine struggle of independence (of course from British Rulers), with […]
Plot = A 102 years old father Dattatraya Vakharia (Amitabh Bachchan) decides to send his 75 years old son Babulal Vakharia (Rishi Kapoor) to an old-age home, because he feels that Babulal’s sadistic and negative outlook towards life, might act as an hindrance in his mission of making a world record of the ‘longest living human’ on this planet.
Opinion = It is an ‘experience of a lifetime’ to watch two legendary actors like Amitabh Bachchan & Rishi Kapoor perform together on screen, in the same frame. It is a ‘heroineless’ movie and the entire weightage of the movie is on the strong shoulders of both the superstars. The movie is a cinematic adaptation of a gujarati play, which was also very famous with its patrons. The entire movie is an emotional journey between a father and a son, which will make you laugh, will make you cry and will guide you to celebrate the spirit of life. In one scene, Mr. Bachchan tells Mr. Kapoor that ‘Jab tak jee rahe ho, kabhi marna mat’. This one line sums up the entire craft. The movie urges you to find hope even in weirdest of the situations. For majority of the time, the movie is a laughter riot. The jugalbandi between both the actors is the ‘icing on the cake’. And, the plus point is that, the movie never becomes melodramatic and maintains a light breeze throughout. It’s a complete family entertainer!
Performances = I am not in a position and the capacity to comment anything on the acting prowess of Mr. Amitabh Bachchan & Mr. Rishi Kapoor. I can only write that, they have performed at par with the expectations. Their performances have placed the script on a superior pedestal. As an audience, you laugh with them and will cry with them simultaneously. Actor Jimit Trivedi as Mr. Bachchan’s sidekick has also given a very good and hilarious performance.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = After Oh My God!, Director Umesh Shukla has given another masala entertainer which will be appreciated on a massive level. He has handled the subject with finesse. The Background Score ignites the right kind of emotion at the right time. Production wise, it seems that the movie is made on a shoestring budget. The Songs in the movie are forgettable, to say the least.
Rowdy Rating = 4 / 5
Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = The movie is an extension of the ‘Sarkar’ franchise which is one of the most successful franchise of Bollywood. Subhash Nagre a.k.a ‘Sarkar’ is dealing with the current political situation of Mumbai where a builder (Bajrangbali Singh), a politician (Manoj Bajpai) […]
