The film is a remake of the superhit Telugu film Vikramarkudu, which was also remade in Tamil as Siruthai, another superhit. The film will see Akshay Kumar back in his original action avatar, this time under the direction of the maestro of the masala action genre, Prabhudeva. The movie is pegged to be one of the most anticipated movies of 2012.

Let us make a few things clear. Rowdy Rathore is a movie strictly for die-hard fans of Akshay Kumar and for people who like pedestrian masala movies. People who are expecting something like WANTED from Prabhudeva will be sorely disappointed.

Akshay Kumar plays Shiva, a small-time thug in Mumbai. He decides to mend his ways when he falls in love with Priya (Sonakshi Sinha). Then a child comes into the picture and she believes he is her father. Which is when it is revealed that Akshay Kumar has a double role in the film and the other (Rowdy Rathore, actually) is a fearless cop in Devgarh. Both of them have to fulfil each other’s mission. Yashpal Sharma plays a reliable cop and Supreeth Reddy plays the villain while Paresh Ganatra plays Akshay’s sidekick.

Clearly, the story is implausible and illogical. The first half is boring and slow. The second half is fraught with mind-numbing violence. Those who were wondering about the meaning of Chinta tata chita, it means “I will make a chutney of your backside!” Believe it or not and it is used like a great phrase in the movie! The music is forgettable and the item song is cheap. The action scenes where one hero beats up 20-30 people were convincing in Wanted but there have been so many rip-offs of that style (as seen in Dabangg, Ready, Bodyguard, Singham, Buddah Hoga Terra Baap, etc.) that there is no novelty in it anymore. The dialogue is juvenile and wannabe. Lines like “Jo mein bolta who mein karta hu aur jo mein nahi bolta hu woh mein definitely karta hu” don’t make the desired impact.

Sonakshi Sinha disappears for a majority of the movie so her fans will be disappointed. She has two songs and a few scenes in which she is required to only look pretty, let the camera focus on her ample waist, and then do some cheap steps in outdated songs with Akshay Kumar. The girl who poses as Shiva’s daughter is cute and endearing.

Salman Khan popularized vibrant pants (read: pink, yellow, red, etc.) and these days even Aamir Khan pulls them off. Sadly, Akshay Kumar looks quite ridiculous in pink, purple, and orange pants paired with equally bright shirts. Akshay is convincing in the action scenes but his star power or charisma is not enough to pull off this ridiculous movie. It is high time that he altered his selection of movies. We have no idea what the several producers (Shabina Khan, Eros, UTV, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali) were thinking when they financed this movie. Skip this rowdy fest unless you like mindless action and Akshay Kumar
