Serial Kisser is back in town baby! After experimenting with different genre of movies Emraan Hashmi is back to what he does best, a roadside romeo with a passion for kissing. He is pairing up with Pakistani actress Humaima Malik in this movie which is directed by Kunal Deshmukh.
Raja Natwarlal is a typical story
about a con man, a tried and test formula in Bollywood but the only
kahani mein twist would be the fact that this con man is trying to
dupe a bigger con man for a hidden motive. The story starts with
two friends Raja (Emraan Hashmi) and Raghav (Deepak Tijori), petty
crooks in the city of Mumbai who are capable of conning people with
outrageously smart tricks. While this is their life in the day,
during night time Raja goes running to his girl friend slash bar
dancer, Ziya (Humaima Mailk).
The two friends are leading a happy and adventurous life till
they cross paths with don Varda Yadav (Kay Kay
Menon) and unintentionally lock horns with him which results in
the death of Raja's brother from another mother, Raghav. Since the
two were really close, his death shakes up Raja's emotions and he
plans to seek the revenge of his friend's untimely departure. Raja
approaches a veteran ex-con artist, Yogi (Paresh Rawal)
to guide him and help take revenge and con the don. How they con
Varda and do they manage to con him is what forms Raja
Natwarlal movie's predictable story.
The lead hero's character Raja is often heard telling that a con
man has to always be ten steps ahead of his victim; it would have
been so much better had the director and makers of the film
followed the same ideology too. If a lame man can figure out your
plot and story line in the movie, how can you even con the
With the lead protagonist being a shrewd con man, the plot has
to be ten times ahead of the audience making sure that we are at
the edge of our seats trying to figure out his next move. But sadly
that doesn't happen and you get bored out of your mind. The sad
unappealing songs of the movie don't help much either.
Coming to star cast of the movie, Paresh Rawal is an actor whose
performance is worth gloating about. The timing of his dialogues
and his role as the con guru is captivating. Kay Kay Menon too
delivers a brilliant performance but somewhere you expect more out
of this talented actor's role and you are left hanging in the
Humaima Malik is pretty and a damsel in distress sorts in the
movie and while her romantic escapades with the hero is cute and
manages to keep us at our seats, her role feels unwanted and
miss-able. The actress's overacting antics didn't help her role
Coming to the hero, Emraan Hashmi, though the movie is
predictable and tad bit boring, his role is worth the watch. He has
improved a lot in his acting skills and has ensured to leave a big
mark with his fine performance.
Yogi and Raja's mentor-protege relationship which influences the
latter's role. Yogi's dialogues and the philosophies they share of
the con world are quite enthralling.
- Weak screenplay, Parvez Shaikh should have come up with a smarter plot and a tad bit cleverer screenplay would have helped keep the audiences on their toes.
- Songs are usually the high points in both Emraan and Kunal's movie but in this movie the music score has left us disappointed.
A watchable fare if you really have nothing much to do this
weekend, but if you are looking to have a great entertaining time
then you can give it a miss and watch something better.
The trademark aspect of Emraan Hashmi's movies are kissing
scenes and don't worry there are enough in this movie as
The actor is back to basics, playing the role of a con artist
and his fine performance is worth appreciating.
She is hot and you know it. But that's it, there is nothing more
Brillaint and captivating performance by the veteran
Kay Kay Menon
This brilliant actor could have been utilized in a much better
Paresh's dialogues are whistle worthy and the student-teacher
chemistry is worth the watch.
Humaima remains an eye candy through out the movie and this
romantic angle was not needed and would have been better without
Songs are not impressive at all, they sound good to hear the
first time but they are not addictive and are easily
420 ka expert they are, as they have duped us into watching the
movie in which the protagonist fails to dupe people in a believable
The makers should have dreamed big when it came to the plot for
it was as predictable and predictability can be.
