Everyone knows there is a big section of makers in Bollywood who have a herd mentality. If something works, then keep on making similar kinds of movies again and again, even if it fails. It’s like their obsession or gambler instinct who hopes to win next bet they play, no matter how many times they lose.
In the early 2000s, it was musical erotic thrillers copied from South Korea or Hollywood with Emraan Hashmi. Now it is macho patriotic jingoism nonsense which is ruling the roost. Most Bollywood films, including Sooryavanshi, Satyemayev 2, Attack, Heropanti 2, etc. revolved around such themes. An action hero who will do anything to save the country.
Rashtra Kavach Om is the same old wine, just in a new bottle.
Are we fools to fall for the same story every time?
Or is this Mithuda’s 90s era?
Rashtra Kavach Om is a story of a commando, Om (played by Aditya Roy Kapoor), who is sent on a mission to bring back an anti-nuclear missile shield (Rashtra Kavach) but gets botched because of a mole within his team. Om gets shot, leading to partial memory loss in this mission. Now Om has many tasks to complete.
Find out who the mole is. Bring back the Rashtra Kavach, which was initially developed by his father, Jackie (who has been labelled as traitor).
The makers seem to have worked upon a half-baked script with no proper story progression. With too many options, the story meanders here and there with unwanted and unrealistic twists. Coupled with terrible and loud dialogues exchanged between the cast without any purpose, it makes the movie go haywire. Despite the presence of powerhouse talents such as Ashutosh Rana, Prakash Raj, and the seasoned Jackie Shroff in the supporting cast, you have to wonder which is worse.
Is it their acting or the dialogues that you can’t stand?
Even such talented actors bomb without proper narrative and direction.
Regarding Aditya and many other actors who think ripped bodies and good looks are enough for an action movie, WAKE UP. First you need a tight-bound script, then a good thrilling screenplay with interesting twists and turns, followed by nice action stunts for any good thriller action movie to work. Remember SRK’s Baazigaar, which had all the above and the movie became one of the biggest hits of the year. SRK was neither attractive (in comparison to other actors at the time) nor had a ripped six-pack body.
Even action sequences in the movie seem to have been done in haste or under budget with poor stunts. It’s been ages, I haven’t seen a movie where, even after 24 hours, I couldn’t think a single good thing to talk about the movie.
Poor script, poor direction, terrible performance. What more can I say?
Had there been no cinema, then this SharmaJiKaLadka would have died long ago. Out of food, sex and cinema this guy would always choose Cinema even if he would die virgin due to starvation.
