Bullett Raja Movie Review
Director: Tigmanshu Dhulia
Producer: Nitin Tej Ahuja, Rahul Mittra, Tigmanshu Dhulia
Cast: Saif Ali Khan, Jimmy Shergill, Sonakshi Sinha
Bollywood plots have taken a series of change over the years and Bullett Raja seems to have followed up on the same lines. Discovering new areas and aspects is the new ‘in’ thing in the film industry and every director wants his film to be distinguished from every other release.
Tigmanshu Dhulia has been one of those directors who has constantly given us something to look forward to. His vision and his talent combined has surely made our Fridays more entertaining. After Paan Singh Tomar and Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster , the director has chosen the mainstream commercial line with Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha – Bullett Raja released today!
Raja Mishra (Saif Ali Khan) is a commoner, turns into a notorious and a carefree man. He’s a faithful friend, a loyal lover and lives his life the way he wants to, fearing nobody on earth. The movie showcases how a common man revolts against a false system. He starts getting more and more stronger in terms of power and people are after him to curb down his authority.
The movie is as expected from Dhulia, very raw, unrefined and same. Yeah, the same. Well, the idea of the character is a little different but I’m sure you can connect it to other characters with a similar tinge. The screenplay is tight with a lot of masala and twists and you often find yourself asking, what’s next! The mind games the characters play in the movie raises your expectations for a swash-buckling climax!
The dialogues are also pretty good. Nothing overdone or under-expressed. They go hand in hand with Saif’s harsh character. The background score is perfect and in-sync with the kind of atmosphere the director desires to set. The action sequences are a bit over the top but certainly not like Ready or Chennai Express. Thank you for this, sincerely.
Saif Ali Khan has done a fabulous job getting into the skin of the character. His performance was polished and his presence is not overseen in any sequence. His hard work is definitely visible and his body language which is very important for a character like his, is simply excellent. Jimmy Shergill also pulls off a really good performance and his bonding with Saif is very good. Sonakshi Sinha doesn’t quite fit in but she does her part pretty good.
Vidyut Jamwal is surely a highlight during his cameo and his muscle just keeps getting better. He’s definitely one big shot in the future. Mark my words. Raj Babbar essays the role of a scheming politician excellently and Gulshan Grover is as always at his best.
Overall, the movie is just another entertaining commercial flick, something which depends personal choice. If you’re a Salman Khan movie fan, RUSH!!!! If not, just pray for better movies.
