Rowdy Rathore is a remake of a South film which was remade three more times before. Prabhu Deva has directed this film after the blockbuster Wanted, and this one promises to be even more explosive than the one before. The lead in the movie is Akshay Kumar and opposite him is Sonakshi Sinha. This is a fresh pairing and a lot is expected from them. This film has been promoted quite well and the songs have become quite popular. Therefore, the film is bound to receive a good opening. Let' s see if the story will be able to hold the audience.

Shiva (Akshay Kumar) is a suave conman. He steals with ease but one thing gets stolen from him, his heart. He falls for Priya (Sonakshi Sinha) who is in Mumbai to attend a wedding. After much crude courtship, she too falls for him and he decides to give up his criminal ways for good. However, there is a twist. A little girl mistakes him for her father and he decides to take care of her. Priya finds out about the girl and leaves for Patna.

Some goons also make the same mistake like the little girl and try to kill Shiva thinking he is Vikram Rathore, but the real Vikram Rathore (Akshay Kumar) comes and saves the day. Now begins his story. He is an honest cop who gets transferred to a lawless village. The goons over there engage him in a fight and manage to kill him. However, he is still alive and is hiding and comes out to save Shiva. What will happen next? Will Vikram and Shiva survive? And will Priya forgive Shiva?

There have been too many south inspired films of late. That just goes to show that there is a huge lacking of good scripts in the industry. While good scripts lay catching dust in archives, silly producers are busty trying to remake films that weren' t great to begin with.

The film is not that great to be honest. However, there is a certain audience that would like this film as it is a masala entertainer. There is a certain mystery factor in the film, but the revelation of the mystery is not done in a great way. Some of the dialogues and the situations are slightly funny but on the whole, the humor quotient in the film is a little dull.

The direction by Prabhu Deva is good when it comes to getting performances and recreating the crazy action all south films are known for. However, as a story teller, he is strictly okay.

Akshay Kumar takes the cake in Rowdy Rathore. This film is right up his alley. He proves he is the master of action comedy combo. There is not much he could have gone wrong with. However, there was his performance as Inspector Rathore which is was a little lackluster. Sonakshi does not really have much to do than give close ups of her delightfully fleshy hips, which she does with ease. The others in the cast are also good.

The music of the film has already become a hit. "Chinta Ta Ta" and "Aa Re Pritam Pyare" are chartbusters. However, the background score is a little loud. The cinematography is okay but moves around too much for the audience to watch comfortably. The editing is fine. The production value of the film is good. The producers have spent some good money on the VFX of the film.

The film actually might become a hit despite it not being a very good product. Rowdy Rathore will pull in crowds based on the music and popularity of Akshay Kumar. Sadly, this film will go down in history as just another hit and nothing more than that.

Rating: **

Verdict: Rowdy Rathore is set to go rowdy on the box-office but the makers should pray that the audience would overlook the obvious flaws.
