Featuring Saif Ali Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Vidyut Jamwal, Bullet Raja is a hi-octane drama flick, set against the backdrop of Uttar Pradesh-based mafia while dealing with the political and industrial powers of the state. Like most of Dhulia's earlier films, Bullet Raja too is raw, unrefined, rustic and unique in it's own way.
The story of Bullet Raja revolves around Raja Mishra, a
commoner, who gets transformed into Bullett Raja - a notorious,
care a damn attitude gangster.
A faithful friend and a loyal lover, living life on his own
terms, setting his own rules, commanding respect and fearing no
one, Bullett Raja in his true inimitable style takes on the system
that creates people like him in a compelling struggle for power and
Mishra's character commands respect, but at the same time he
makes sure he respects women. Although he is a gangster where he
finds glory with guns, the movie also has for us some instances of
romance between Saif and Sonakshi Sinha, who plays Mishra's love
interest in the flick. This gangster has his lady love to whom he
is very loyal.
Tigmanshu sets things up skillfully in the first hour. Like most
of Dhulia's movie, Bullet Raja too boasts of some fiery and
impactful dialogues, bringing a vital spark in the movie, that
flows so effortlessly.
As for Saif Ali Khan, you'll get to see a bit of Langda Tyagi in
Bullet Raja. Saif's looks, his mannerisms, his body
language, his overall behavioral pattern takes you by complete
surprise in Bullet Raja. From a sophisticated charmer to a
rustic gunda, Saif makes the audience believe him.
Sonakshi Sinha looks beautiful, but she's again repetative.
Sinha doesn't get to do much in the movie, while Vidyua Jamwal on
the other hand, is just 'wow'.
Bullet Raja might not be Dhulia's finest work, but this one is worth one time watch. On the whole, apart from Dulia's midas touch, Bullet Raja works big time due to Saif's power-pack performance.
