Rowdy Rathore personifies everything of above. It is loud, it is noisy, it is rough… and it is also lovable, it is unapologetic and it is fun.
Rowdy Rathore doesn’t have anything new to offer… but the trailers never promised anything new in the first place.
Rowdy Rathore isn’t great cinema and won’t go to the Oscars… but then not all Oscar winning movies are great entertainers.
Rowdy Rathore doesn’t traverse any chapter of moviedom which has not been visited earlier… but then you have always enjoyed your nth visit to Puris and Darjeelings and Kashmirs.
Ramgarh becomes Devgarh and Gabbar becomes Baapji. If Thakur is Rathore, then Jai-Veeru returns as Shiva (the Rowdy). It’s the age-old battle between the evil and the good and the good triumphs after a rowdy ride.
Is the ride bumpy? The ride is fun and the ride is entertaining… spiced with the flavours of comedy, mind-boggling action scenes, sizzling one-liners, a brilliant Khiladi, songs that are no great shakes and yet makes you shake your booty… Rowdy Rathore is a complete masala entertainer.
I loved Rowdy Rathore.
Was the 1st day night show Rs250 ticket worth the price? YES. Will I watch it a 2nd time? YES.
PS: Well done, Prabhudheva and Team! It was long when I cheered for a Hero. It was long when I shouted my heart out and no one around seemed to mind.
