BULLETT RAJA….From director Tigmanshu Dhulia who gave us the mighty “Paan Singh Tomar” & scandalous “Saheb Biwi aur Gangster” has managed to give an mass appealing masala entertainer. He wanted to cast Saif Ali Khan in this role since “Omkara” after seeing his performance as “Langda Tyagi“. This was earlier titled “Jai Ram Ji Ki” but was changed as per Saif’s suggestion to Bullett Raja which gives a gangster ring to it.
The story is set in the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh gangster claiming their territory, in which the lead characters get tangled played by Saif & Jimmy.That leads them to join the evil forces, from there on there is no return for them. Screenplay by Tigmanshu was engaging with powerful one liners and strong dialogues. Characterization was great, as every one fit their role perfectly.
Since “Langda Tyagi” I would say, Raja Mishra was the toughest role played by Saif Ali Khan. His character was portrayed well. It had the dynamism which was required for the role, he looked dangerously perfect. It was well supported by Jimmy Shergill as Rudra,he is one actor who could not make it as a stand alone lead, but he is packed with great potential, which he has proven over past few movies and this one is great. Sonakshi Sinha as Mitali was ravishing this time for a difference, she has become the queen of masala entertainers.Raj Babbar as Ram Babu Shukla was seen on screen after a while and was played well as the god father among the politicians. So was the case with the corporate tycoon played by Gulshan Grover, who is hardly seen these days and have not lost his charm yet. Chunky Pandey has a short stint supported by Sharat Saxena and Ravi Kishan as Sumer Yadav was great.
The character Inspector Arun Singh Munna played by Vidyut Jamwal was top notch, he is seen in the second half for a short span of time, but with his entry the movie builds a great momentum. As usual no can beat him when it comes to his acrobatic action skills. Not only he looks dashing but has great skills as an actor and could actually suit the title Action King. Action scenes in the movie were amazing, which were taken to next level with Vidyut’s sequences.
The music by Sajid-Wajid was average, the only track which can get credit is the title track “Bullett Raja” which was very catchy. Editing by Rahul Shrivastava was tight, with racy cinematography by PS Vinod. If you expect a “Paan Singh Tomar” you will be disappointed, go in with low expectations trust me you will be satisfied in the end. Tigmanshu has delivered a racy mass entertainer which is enjoyable and is truly engaging. The movie does compliments it’s tagline “Jab hum aayenge garmi thodi bad jaayegi,pataa chal hi jaayega” Bullett Raja!!!!
