Times have changed, but certain film-makers are still stuck up in the era gone by and that reflects in their cinema. That's what you realise when you watch Ruslaan. The film  highlights a terrorist act that shook the nation a few years ago and how the life of an innocent goes topsy-turvy when he's falsely framed as a terrorist [Khuda Kay Liye and more recently New York also depicted this. But the gravity of the situation doesn't come across on the screen because the writing is amateurish and the execution, childish.

Ruslaan [Raajveer] lives with his parents and a younger sister. He's in love with Samaira [Megha Chatterjee]. One day, a series of blasts occur at various railway stations of Mumbai and the cops arrest Ruslaan for this act of terror.

Director Mohan C. Sharma looks at a serious issue [train blasts in Mumbai], but there's nothing in the film that moves you or makes you think. In fact, the love story [between Raajveer and Meghaa] is also under-developed and the terrorist track is poorly written as well.
