Review Rowdy -TweetPlot = The movie is a cinematic representation of the Battle Of Saragarhi, fought on September 12, 1897, where, 21 soldiers of the 36th Battalion of Sikh Regiment, namely, Havildar Ishar Singh, Naik Lal Singh, Lance Naik Chanda Singh, Sepoy Sundar Singh, Sepoy […]
Plot = A badass and corrupt cop Sangram Bhalerao a.k.a. SIMMBA (Ranveer Singh), gets posted at Miramar Police Station (Goa) and befriends the local goon Durva Ranade (Sonu Sood).
He acquits Durva from all the criminal charges, posted against him by the local residents, in exchange of Money. Sangram’s life gets tobsy-turvy when he is bound to lock thorns with Durva, for a heinous crime committed by Durva’s siblings.
So, will SIMMBA acquit the culprits, in the same way as he acquits their brother Durva, or will his conscience force him to rectify the error?
Opinion = So finally, Rohit Shetty has avenged the unfortunate death of NIRBHAYA, by making a khichadi of DABANGG & SINGHAM, along with promoting his next project in the pipeline, as well. The movie highlights the issues related to sexual assault and rape of women, which are growing at a phenomenal rate in our country.
Concept Wise, it’s a noble idea, but, Execution Wise, it’s a typical masala movie, rohit shetty shtyle!
The movie is completely PAISA WASOOL, if nothing else.
It will satisfy your urge of watching an entertaining flick and whatever review I publish, it will have minimal impact on Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh fans. They will watch it anyways.
The first half is quirky, slick, entertaining and engaging, all at the same time.
Whereas, the second half is verbose and philosophical.
If the makers would have worked a little hard to maintain the novelty of the second half, as well, it would have impacted my rating on this movie, in a positive way.
Nonetheless, there is something in the movie, for everybody, which makes it a complete family entertainer.
Performances = I cannot imagine any other actor playing the character of Sangram Bhalerao (SIMMBA) better than Ranveer Singh. It’s a role, crafted specially to suit his on screen personality. Ranveer is an adroit in carrying roles, which requires high amount of energy and innate masti. He is corrupt, laundiyabaaz, family man, gunda, everything, in equal proportion. The movie completely relies on and belongs to him.
Sara Ali Khan looks promising and suits the role perfect to the T.
Sonu Sood has done the same thing, which he is been doing since the release of DABANGG.
Off late, Bollywood has started disrespecting the talent and potential of an actor like Ashutosh Rana (Head Constable Mohile), by giving him trivial roles and monotonous character graphs.
The supporting cast was average in their performances.
The cameo of Ajay Devgn & Akshay Kumar is refreshing.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = Director Rohit Shetty is well aware with the nerves and even the blood group of his audience. He gives them, what they exactly want.
You will always find decent comic punches, superhit soundtrack, citi bajaao action and dialoguebaazi, everything, in every film, helmed by Rohit Shetty.
Here also, he has continued the trajectory.
The cinematography and production design are lavish and stylish.
Can’t comment anything on the songs in this movie, because 2 of them, are just the remake of the old classics. And the cameo of all the lead actors of GOLMAAL in AANKH MAARE, was anyways useless.
Rowdy Rating = 3.5 / 5

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 = It’s a compilation of 4 different stories showcasing the length to which, individuals can go, for quenching their sexual – urge.
CHARACTER LINE UP: –
Story 1:- Kalindi (Radhika Apte) & Tejas Bhave (Akash Thosar) – Directed by Anurag Kashyap
Story 2: – Sudha (Bhumi Pednekar) & Ajit (Neil Bhoopalam) – Directed by Zoya Akhtar
Story 3: – Reena (Manisha Koirala); Sudhir (Jaideep Ahlawat) & Salman (Sanjay Kapoor) – Directed by Dibakar Banerjee
Story 4: – Megha (Kiara Advani); Paras (Vicky Kaushal) & Rekha (Neha Dhupia) – Directed by Karan Johar
Opinion = The movie is intriguing throughout. Considering that the stories are helmed by extremely reputed and trusted Directors, you expect to see a decent and refreshing content. However, I still feel that the movie “Lipstick Under My Burkha” (which had a similar premise) was much better and entertaining in its execution. The first story (Directed by Anurag Kashyap & Starring Radhika Apte) was highly disappointing. You take time to get sold to its premise, but again, the climax of the story leaves you in disdain. The second and the third story are the best of the lot. Overall, the movie is like a half-cooked khichadi, which gives you a very good breeze, but when you taste it, you feel the need of adding some more salt!
Performances = The movie clearly belongs to Actress Bhumi Pednekar; Actress Manisha Koirala; Actor Sanjay Kapoor and Actress Kiara Advani. All of them have given an outstanding performance. Especially, actress Bhumi Pednekar definitely deserves an award for her mind – boggling performance. She is establishing herself in the clan of Shabana Azmi, Smita Patil, Sridevi and the likes, with her every new outing. She has expressed a lot of things by remaining silent. It was a treat to watch Manisha Koirala & Sanjay Kapoor, giving a splendid performance, after a very long time. The sharpness of their talent is still intact. Actress Kiara Advani will start getting more offers from the fraternity, after the industry stalwarts see her performance in this movie. The pain of being sexually – unsatisfied, is clearly visible in her expressions, which testifies my above statement. Actor Vicky Kaushal is just repeating the same monotonous performance in every movie. If he does not choose his scripts wisely, we, as an audience, will not get to see him frequently on screen. Unfortunately, talented actors like Jaideep Ahlawat & Radhika Apte are completely wasted here. I don’t understand why Radhika chose this script, as her character was single – dimensional and quite boring to watch. Actress Neha Dhupia was just present for showcasing her blouse – clad breasts. The supporting cast was decent in their performance.
Direction & Other Technical Aspects = As a FAN, I expect a much better content from Director Anurag Kashyap. After NO SMOKING, he has disappointed me again. Director Zoya Akhtar has done a fantabulous job. Her direction doesn’t even allow you to blink your eyes. Her story was the most engaging one. I appreciate her “attention to details” and the way she has scripted the dialogues and the proceedings. Director Dibakar Banerjee also never disappoints. The suspense – factor in his story, will keep you hooked to your mobile – screen. Director Karan Johar’s story was like a comic – relief to the intense proceedings. His Direction will keep you entertained!
Rowdy Rating = 3.5 / 5
