Bullett Raja Reviews
Up until the halfway mark, Bullett Raja is rollicking entertainment. Our gangster protagonists kill, maim, kidnap, and intimidate their rivals, all the while bickering and joking, in Dhulia's direct nod to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Sadly the film's screenplay comes undone post intermission, its second half disintegrating into a bloody revenge saga.
Tigmanshu Dhulia is best when he opts for content drawn for reality instead of flying off into an absurd land where everyone detests one another with a vengeance. Thodasa control kijiye, brother! Make cinema, not bullets.
For 'Bullett Raja', the extra 't' for emphasis, is a potboiler with little pretensions to realism but much too close a connection with Dhulia to entirely jettison it too.
Bullett Raja has flashes of fire but mostly it seems to be hobbled by a misguided sense of machismo. Everyone struts — including Vidyut Jamwal who makes an appearance as a dynamic cop — but no one goes anywhere. Which is a shame because these UP cowboys could have been fun.
Bullett Raja is rife with predictable scenes, bad editing and a lack of control over the script, which spirals into an unending loop of absurdity. The pseudo-patriotism blends into personal enmity with the corrupt without much warning, leaving the viewers confused.
Guns, girls, grime and glory come together in a layered tale of corruption, politics and kinetic camaraderie.
To sum up, Bullett Raja is Tigmanshu Dhulia's Dabangg.
...is zany and funny, an Uttar Pradesh take on Sholay's Jai and Veeru, 'twice-born' in Lucknow as Raja Mishra (Khan) and Rudra Pratap (Shergill). BR is a racy ride, cynical, yet sweet, dark, yet bright. Go watch - you'll enjoy those bangs in the dark.
with its grave minuses and fewer plusses is an underwhelming film much to my disbelief. The last few films of Dhulia had made me believe that he ranks amongst the top notch filmmakers of this generation. Unfortunately the man goes wrong with his favorite recipe of showcasing the ills of political nexus, as he hands out a story that barely has any moments and remains flat for most part. Saif Ali Khan and Jimmy Shergill chemistry is the only best part from the acting section. But in all its triteness, Bullett Raja is Dhulia’s most uninspired work till date.
...Saif does justice to his role, bringing to it a vital spark and zest that flows so effortlessly. Sonakshi Sinha in a brief role does what is required for the part. Bullet Raja's slogan claims "aayenge toh garmi badyaenge." To the film's credit it delivers what it promises.
...Tigmanshu Dhulia's most 'commercial', mass appealing film thus far. One more superior endeavor after the immeasurably acknowledged PAAN SINGH TOMAR and the vastly admired SAHEB BIWI AUR GANGSTER franchise, all of which belong to completely diverse genres of cinema. Enjoyable, engaging and extremely distinctive, BULLETT RAJA is not to be missed!
The story is unconvincing and at many points you might feel that the movie is going haywire. In fact, uncanny behaviour of the characters might irritate you in the first half. The film has a strong UP connect. From dialogues to accent, Tigmanshu Dhulia has focused on minute details.
There are no surprises at any stage, it is all so very predictable. And its all the more disappointing because with the ordinary story Dhulia doesn’t elevate it much either. There is the odd scene that you let out a chuckle (like the scene where a dacoit wants to surrender) but by and large it is not very engaging.
...not completely unwatchable but we have come to expect a certain class from Tigmanshu Dhulia and it is sad to see him sacrifice that in a bid to make a commercially viable film.
...is full-on TASHAN. High on style with no thought given to scripting. Even the introduction of Sonakshi Sinha's character lacks vision. She just comes in and warms up to the dudes and is willing to stay with them. Even if she was not in the film, it would have made no difference. ...if action is your forte, then bite this Bullett!
The biggest plus point of Bullet Raja is that the audience gets to see a fresh new pair- Saif and Sonakshi and their amazing chemistry. Bullet Raja is a treat to the action lovers, and yes, Saif rocks in his raw avatar.
