The Rush Movie Review

'Rush' is run-of-the-mill
By Nikhil Kumar
Rating: 2/5

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Rush. Emraan Hashmi has always been punctilious about the films he does. His enviable box office record of many hits on the trot speaks for itself, but this time the man with Midas Touch seems to have made a slip. For his film Rush is a lackluster, predictable, hackneyed, run-of-the-mill thriller about a crime reporter sucked in the big bad world of manipulations and deceptions.

Sam (Emraan Hashmi) loses his job with a news channel after an incendiary expose involving an interview with a most-wanted sharp-shooter who’s hunted by the cops. But he gets a lucrative offer from another channel, Crime 24, by the media tycoon Lisa (Neha Dhupia) who seems to be doubling up as a seductress to lure Sam into a game where strings are pulled by the avaricious owner Roger Khanna (Aditya Pancholi).

Ambition and lust for riches prompts Sam to take the path that separates him from his girlfriend (Sagarika Ghatge), but the deeper he wades into this muck of TRP-raking crime stories, the more he sees the unethical means by which the channel not just gathers its news to break a story earlier than the rivals, but how it creates news by bumping off people. In this literally cut-throat mayhem, Sam refuses to become a pawn and does course correction just in time. But is there a way out of this cesspool? Sooner than not, the crime reporter takes to crime.

Just a quick run-through of this synopsis of Rush will have you convinced that the film has on offer all that you’ve seen in previous Hashmi films. There’s the same lure of fame or riches, followed by depravity, followed by redemption and breaking away from turpitude. Rush has it all, rolled and packaged neatly by director Shamin Desai who seems too inspired by the films of the Bhatts. What the film has not is novelty, and that’s not just because the writing is staid and the plot is set to a template we’ve come to associate with Hashmi, but also because Shamin Desai shows a conspicuous lack of imagination in crafting and directing the story. In short, he tries to play it safe and in ironic contrast to the dialogue that his protagonist flamboyantly mouths (Jo risk nahin leta, uska sab kucch risky ho jata hai!) makes things risky for himself.

The first half of Rush plods by at a sleepy pace. The plot thickens post interval, but the twists and turns are so far-fetched and begetting suspension of disbelief that they merely skim off the surface of the screen rather than hitting you in solar plexus.

Emraan Hashmi, as always, throws himself into the role but is let down by trite writing and poor character sketch. Sagarika Ghatge doesn’t deliver anything exceptional; Neha Dhupia is a tad better and Aditya Pancholi is over the top.

In a nutshell, Rush is a film you would happily forget in a hurry. No adrenaline Rush, this.

Rating: **
