Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = The movie is an official hindi remake of the 2016 super – hit marathi movie SAIRAT, where Madhukar Bagla (Ishaan Khattar), belongs to a middle class family, who owns a restaurant at a picturesque location of Udaipur. He falls in love […]
Plot = The movie revolves around a double – murder case where Ms. Catherine Sethi, played by actress Kimberley Louisa McBeath, and lawyer Shekhar Sinha, played by actor Shankar Yadav are brutally murdered in their respective apartments and the allegation gets posed on Mr. Vikram Sethi, played by actor Sidharth Malhotra. Catherine is Sidharth’s wife and they were going through a troubled marriage and hence Sidharth becomes a soft target for the investigating team. The investigation is headed by Inspector Dev, played by actor Akshay Khanna, who takes Sidharth in police custody. Sidharth denies all the allegations against him and informs that his wife has died because of heart attack and the lawyer Shekhar Sinha is killed by his wife Maya Sinha, played by actress Sonakshi Sinha. The movie is then based on the police investigation for finding out the real truth behind the murders.
Opinion = I must admit that I have seen a very good suspense – thriller after a very long time. The movie is highly engaging right from the first frame. Throughout the movie the audience remains highly clueless about the murderer and gets taken aback when it finally gets revealed in the climax. I believe people must now show some maturity and must not divulge the suspense on Book My Show, Twitter, Facebook or any other social portal. The movie has immense hype around it as majority of the audience were already impressed with its trailer. Since, the movie is backed by Dharma Productions and Red Chillies Entertainment, they have maintained their trajectory of giving quality cinema. The movie has right dose of comedy also, with very impressive and witty one – liners mouthed by its actors. In short, the movie is a family entertainer.
Performances = The entire movie runs on the shoulders of two people, those are, Akshaye Khanna and Sidharth Malhotra. Akshaye is a highly talented actor and he was fortunate enough to get a meaty role in this flick. In his last movie MOM, the director had literally made a mockery of his talent. But here, he has raised the bar of the entire movie. Sidharth Malhotra looks highly convincing in his role and is in his complete form. His last outing A Gentleman was a crap, but here, he is in the same form as he was in Ek Villain. He can definitely be tagged as the next Angry Young Man of Bollywood. Till now the title is crowned for Mr. Bachchan. Sonakshi Sinha was decent in her performance as majority of the time she had nothing to do apart from looking feisty on screen. Still, Sonakshi has pulled of her character very well. The movie is highly performance – driven and hence all the supporting actors have also done a commendable job.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Director Abhay Chopra is the nephew of producer – director Vidhu Vinod Chopra. His direction has kept the movie slick and highly engaging. We can feel that he had complete control over the script and the proceedings. There is a scene where a police constable changes the defective tubelight of the interrogation room. We can see the dust over the tubelight which proves that it was literally old and also testifies the detailing of the film. Also, thankfully, the police investigation is shown with great detailing and subtlety instead of looking stupid and kiddish (as done in majority of Bollywood Flicks). The background score helps in elevating the impact of the proceedings.
Rowdy Rating = 4 / 5
