Film Review | R… Rajkumar

A weak, regressive plot that's neither funny nor entertaining

This Romeo was built in a day

“Be silent or I will get violent", is one of Romeo Rajkumar’s favourite dialogues in this film. Needless to say, nobody listens to him and he is forced to beat up people, break bottles and sundry surrounding things. For Rajkumar, who arrives suddenly into a lawless village and falls in love with the first human being he sees, is not to be messed with.

The Prabhu Dheva school of film-making, which includes flying cars, crowd-pleasing dialogues and some loud acting, has worked commercially for him in the past with Wanted and Rowdy Rathore. This time, with R… Rajkumar, the director may have perhaps pushed his luck too far.

Kapoor, who seems to be on a mission to shed his chocolate hero image with some action and comedy, tries hard but this is not a film that will help him achieve his goals. Sinha plays it like she does, but is charming enough for the role. Both sportingly handle digs taken on respective height and weight. Sood, whose accent keeps changing with every scene, tries repeating his role from Dabangg. There will be far more worthwhile things to do this weekend than watch R… Rajkumar.
