Raja Natwarlal Critics Review

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. 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.
RAJA NATWARLAL is essentially an Emraan Hashmi film, which attracts its major audiences from the single screen theaters. The film is bound to face some 'elephantine' competition as its release coincides with the Ganesh Chaturti festival weekend. In addition to that, the next week will also see the release of a hard hitting MARY KOM, which could possibly apply the brakes on RAJA NATWARLAL.
'Raja Natwarlal' is just what diehard fans of Emraan Hashmi were waiting for after the “serial kisser” took an offbeat turn in his last two films, running after daayans and losing his memory. But given that Emraan is back as the roadside Romeo hero, and that Bollywood has well trained us to go easy on the logic bit, 'Raja Natwarlal' could just be a watchable fare.
Raja Natwarlal for some would sound a con game following similar tried and tested formulas of Bollywood. While its trailer too had a deja vu feeling, which didn’t click this time, Raja Natwarlal as a whole is different from our expectations. Raja Natwarlal is a good watch for its actors’ performance and its witty dialogues.
The film has some truly thrilling moments, it also disappoints in many ways. The lazy script makes some situations seem too simplistic and convenient. A tad more clever screenplay would have made them more challenging for Raja, making his character awe-inspring and a rung above the rest of us. This film had huge potential but sadly one walks out of the theatre unimpressed by Raja Natwarlal’s antics and this film.
