R... Rajkumar Reviews
To dismiss 'R... Rajkumar' merely as a throwback to those cheerfully low-IQ 80s potboilers would mean letting off the makers too easily, for this is cinema of the most exhausting kind. The climax alone carries on for over 15 minutes, in which Shahid is repeatedly stabbed, and then whacked around with everything from iron rods to wooden planks. He survives, but you almost don't.
I was left asking, why was R.. Rajkumar made? It is nothing but blank putrid noise. R.. for Rubbish. Zero star.
`R...Rajkumar’ is a vague attempt to produce a film with a variety of emotions, but sadly you will find no trace of any kind of emotion, not even humour. The filmmaker has failed to make even a single moment where the movie viewer connects to any of the movie characters.Watch the film only if you don’t love yourself!
...is stretched, dragged and pulled in all sorts of irrelevant directions just so it covers the remainder time.Prabhu Dheva’s films are infantile fantasies that seek to gratify the fragile male ego and libido. Any further analysis of this imbecility would be a waste of time.
The film begins pretty well and Shahid entertains in bits but there's only so much he can do to make this kind of stuff work.
From this critic’s point of view, watching this film is like being trapped, for all of two-and-a-half excruciating hours, in a torture chamber with no escape channel in sight. It is a dreadfully painful and numbingly grotesque drama that could put one off Bollywood action flicks for a while.
While 'R...Rajkumar' entertains at some levels, it suffers from utter plainness and predictability. The raw action is impressive (Ravi Varma), the songs (Pritam) and the choreography are routine attractions. The second half seems like a sari too long and the comedy is often forced.It has some 'Must Haves' of a pot-boiler, but misses the real thing - a SOLID STORY!
Shahid Kapoor gives his heart and soul to the role, though the converse of it is not true.
Why wouldn’t the formula of violence, sex masquerading as romance and low-level humour work, when our audiences have told us that it will? Take that combination and milk it dry without stopping to consider creativity or originality. Rope in an actor who sees a chance to cash in.
Watch it if you are in the mood for a loud no-brainer that relies on formulaic over the top entertainment.
...a below ordinary, at best Prabhudheva’s most modest work till date. Setting up the usual claptraps with parading dialogues, the film bludgeons you to bits. The fun moments are few and though you might find yourself guffawing in parts, in the end the film is neither cohesive nor compelling and that too without an over enthusiastic lead man that you expect from such films. It wasn’t fun and definitely not bang for the buck.
The film does not leave you with a single memorable scene despite its loud effort to impress. Prabhu Dheva clearly loses track of his own film early on. The first half is a jumble and the second seems too long.
...marks the end of pseudo-desi films
Everything is heavily choreographed: from the songs to the action sequences. Kapoor demonstrates that he is the best dancer in Bollywood with fluid moves and energy in "Gandi Baat" and "Sari Ke Fall Saa". But the action soon becomes tiring as there are only that many flying and rolling bodies that you can see. Towards the climax, one feels one is watching a bout of the Ultimate Fighting Championship whose result is long known.
R... RAJKUMAR doesn't work. It is Prabhu Dheva's weakest Hindi film to date!
The biggest reason why R…Rajkumar is a big disappointment is that there is no surprise element in the film. One could easily predict the entire plot of the film.
