The trailer of R… Rajkumar is neither novel nor original. Director turned scriptwriter Prabhu Dheva makes his favorite recipe of masala action, comedy, drama and romance, in his usual style that has been proved to work excellently with the audiences. Be it Salman Khan’s Wanted or Akshay Kumar’s Rowdy Rathore – Prabhu Dheva’s knowledge of masala flicks is so impeccable that the director dishes it all up in R… Rajkumar’s trailer with elan!
However, the only hiccup here is whether Shahid Kapoor revels in these roles like Salman Khan or Akshay Kumar! The answer is dubious and wavering. Personally, I found Shahid quite passable in his latest commercial flick Phata Poster Nikhla Hero. There is a great gusto in his dialogue delivery and his heightened energy works! But what doesn’t go down well, is his lack of effortless zeal in portraying characters of such variety!
Sonakshi Sinha slips in well into the role of an arm candy with the same flair she always does! It is offensive that the young actress doesn’t seek any meat in her role, which is exactly why her marvelous performance in Lootera seemed so breathtaking! But now that I look at it, Lootera was potent simply because of Vikramaditya Motwane’s ability to engage with such passion!
I won’t write off the trailer of R… Rajkumar, erstwhile named Rambo Rajkumar because it has all the elements that viewers have appreciated time and again. But I have my apprehensions and reservations against falling back on similar themes fashioned along archetypal contours! It won’t be wrong to say R…Rajkumar with its action and dialogue-baazi is the latest clones of Wanted and Rowdy Rathore! Care to try it?
