The R... Rajkumar Movie Review

'R… Rajkumar' is a slambang actioner best avoided
By Naresh Kumar Deoshi
Rating: 2/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of R… Rajkumar. What in God’s name was Prabhudheva thinking when he decided to pull this cruel gag on us? That the Rowdified audience will be rolling in the aisles with laughter at Shahid Kapoor’s smutty oneliners? That Sonakshi Sinha as a girl pushed around, stalked and lusted over by the men in the movie would charm her way to our hearts? That the frontbenchers would shower the screen with their pocket change over Shahid Kapoor’s slambang action when the actor himself looks unconvinced that he could as much as inflict a scratch upon the baddies much taller, bigger, and beefier than him?

Chhote size ki cheez hi bade bade kaam karti hai,” Shahid’s character Romeo Rajkumar justifies. True! But everything Prabhudheva aims for in R…Rajkumar is BIG: larger than life entertainment with foot-savvy songs and action so much and so hard as to leave you with the concussion of a beer bottle smashed upon your head. The result: a film that jars your senses for all the wrong reasons and leaves you addled and disoriented, that is if you manage to sit all the way through its long-winded climax.

The story is set in a village called Dhartipur where a young lad Romeo Rajkumar arrives and joins the gang of an opium grower Shivraj (Sonu Sood) who’s the avowed rival of another druglord Parmar (Ashish Vidyarthi). As Romeo goes about his business of bashing up the baddies black and blue, he claps his eyes on the prettiest girl around, Parmar’s niece Chanda (Sonakshi Sinha). Despite no bhav from her, he stalks her repeatedly and bulldozes her into liking, loving him and the two are grooving to ‘Gandi Baat’ in no time.

But it’s Shivraj (Sonu Sood) who wants to execute the real Gandi Baat with Chanda. In short, he lusts for her like a rutting chimp the throes of his foreplay. That’s when his own lieutenant Rajkumar turns on him and vows to do all the ‘Maar Maar’ (fighting) for his ‘Pyaar Pyaar’, and we catch ourselves wishing to be ‘Far Far’ from this loud and crass slugfest.

None expects fine nuances of storytelling from a Prabhudheva film, but what good is all the potboiler masala when there’s no story to speak of in the first place, when the film is sold solely on the merits of how many jaws are smashed, how many skulls pummeled and how many pelvises are made to do the bump-and-grind routine of the most raunchy kind.

Well, to give credit where it’s due, the songs of R… Rajkumar are perhaps the only silver lining in this heap of dross. ‘Gandi Baat’ and ‘Saree Ke Fall Sa’ make one forget -- momentarily -- the nonsense that precedes them. The action and stunts are not bad, but too repetitive. Worse, Shahid Kapoor doesn’t look convincing as the one-man army; he lacks the strut of a Salman Khan, the brooding intensity of an Ajay Devgn or the impish charm of an Akshay Kumar. In short, Shahid tries too hard to fit the bill of a ‘massy action hero’, but in vain.

Sonakshi Sinha, on the other hand, has got herself into a terrible rut where one can’t tell her one role from another. Ditto for Sonu Sood whose Shivraj might as well be the Chedi Singh from ‘Dabangg’ in a different village.

Crass, overlong, tasteless and sexist, R… Rajkumar is a film one would do better keeping away from.

Best Avoided.

Rating: **
