Bullett Raja Movie Review
Tighmanshu Dhulia has created different cinema so far. Haasil, Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster and National Award winning Paan Singh Tomar were gems of this great talent but by choosing to step in full commercial cinema he has somehow done harm to his reputation as he fails to deliver in his latest offering Bullett Raja.
Let’s dig a little deeper into Bullett Raja
Story and Direction:
The story and direction are key points for any film to get success but Bullett Raja has a week storyline and surprisingly poor direction that too by Tighmanshu Dhulia which is hard to believe. Only character performances and action sequences are detailed. All the action scenes (including Vidyut Jamval’s self designed action scenes) were electrifying. Rest of the film is full of loads of gun shots and firing bullets.
The story revolves around a Lucknow based Brahmin Raja Mishra (Saif Ali Khan) who befriends Rudra Tripathi (Jimmy Shergil) and soon they become Jai-Veeru type buddies.The circumstances turns them gangsters as they both starts committing crimes under the shelter of a top local politician Ram Shukla (Raj Babbar). Rudra is killed at the intermission point by a contract shooter Sumer Singh (Ravi Kishan) and a businessman Bajaj (Gulshan Grover) which concludes the boring first half.
The second half comprises of revenge saga of Raja Mishra and some ugly politics to kill Raja Mishra. The movie looks engaging towards the last 20 minutes after the entry of Inspector Arun Singh Munna(Vidyut Jamval) but it was too late for the damage has already been done.
Saif Ali Khan has portrayed his character very well and given an excellent performance. Jimmy Shergill was superb as usual. The leading lady Sonakshi Sinha had no scope and her character was also not well sketched while Raj Babbar, Gulshan Grover, Sharat Saxena and Ravi Kishan had played their part very well but a special praise to our Commando Vidyut Jamvaal who appears towards the climax of the film but leaves a powerful impact and shows signs of a future star. He himself designed the action sequences which were marvelous.
The music of the film was also a let down with no song was worth singing for a long time except Tamanche Pe Disco but it was shortened in the movie and so wasted. “Samne Hai Sawera”, “Dont Touch My Body” and “Satak” were ordinary.
What to watch it for ?
Good character performances and excellent action sequences specially of Vidyut Jamvaal.
Why give it a miss ?
Weak storyline, poor direction and on the whole no entertainment
Bullett Raja Movie Review Verdict
The die hard fans of Saif Ali Khan and Tighmanshu Dhulia can only go for this Masala affair without any real bullet of entertainment.. We give it 2 stars on a scale of 5.
