Bullet Raja (U/A)
Length: - 2 hrs. 18 min.
Bullet Raja starts well, its first half is incredibly good while second half is unexpectedly slow and boring. Bullet Raja loses its track from the entry of Sonakshi Sinha’s character in the film. Dialogues are crisp and compelling which goes in the favor of the film. One of the unique dialogues from the film is “Rajneeti aur vysyavriti dono bahut hi pracheen visaya hai aur dono ka kaam hai sawdhaani se shanti banaye rakhna”.
Raja Mishra (Saif Ali Khan) & Rudra (Jimmy Shergill) meets by chance in a marriage and they becomes good friend in no time. Raja & Rudra both are being attacked by Lallan (Chunky Pandey) & his gang. Based on the advice of unknown and reliable guy they starts working for a well-known minister Ram Babu (Raj Babbar) and quickly becomes famous gangster of UP. Because of some conflict with Raja & Rudra a big political financer Bajaj (Gulshan Grover) kills Rudra with the help of Yadav (Ravi Kishan). After which Raja tries to take revenge from them and eventually being encountered by a well-known Police Officer played by Vidyut Jamwal. Is Raja able to take his revenge, is the second half of the film?
Tigmanshu Dulia who is the both writer and director of the film after giving us good films like Paan Singh Tomar & Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster is unable to satisfy us with Bullet Raja. In bullet raja he is able to do his job only half way. What’s needed was something more than just a revenge saga in the second half. Also, some more refinement in the execution of the characters of the film.
Bullet Raja is mostly about an interesting character Raja Mishra; probably called as Bullet Raja by the film maker. This character desires so much more to execute rather than just being interesting. Saif Ali Khan gets a unique get up from his usual films. He works well but sometimes seems confused and tensed. Sonakshi Sinha has a good potential for acting but she doesn’t get much chance to proof herself. Jimmy Shergill has done a fine job from his side. Much more tighter and refined script could have made Bullet Raja thoroughly entertaining watch.
