PLOT: Rustom Review
The plot of the film is roughly based on the real scandalous incident which took place in 1959 in Mumbai. It’s a story of an honest commander Rustom Pavri (Akshay Kumar) from Indian Navy for whom his nation comes first! Later, the story pans to his beautiful world in which he is happily married to his wife Cynthia Pavri (Ileana D’Cruz) and everything goes well between the duo until he gets to know about the extra-marital affair of his wife.
As events unfold, he realizes that Cynthia is having an affair with his best friend, Vikram Makhija. The story grips audiences’ interests as Pavri shoots his wife’s lover and surrenders himself! In spite of being the real killer, a twist in the tale occurs when things turn in Rustom Pavri’s favour. Now, whether all the events were pre-planned or was he indeed a patriot and shot Makhija in the heat of the moment? You need to rush to the theatres to find out!
PERFORMANCES: Rustom Review
He is a darling in performance wise. Akki should be give a pat for putting his heart and soul into the character. From his behaviour to body language, from the way he talks and stands in the film, every sequence of his is worth clapping! Also, he has made sure to make his character look balanced throughout the film. He has raised his pitch when needed, without making it look overdramatic and giving pure authenticity to his character. Ileana, on the other side, stuck to her character throughout the film and did a good job! Esha Gupta, who shares a very minute screen space in the film, did an average job in her negative character as the lady does not have much to offer!
TECHNICALITIES: Rustom Review
When it comes to making a film based on real-life incidents, Bollywood film-makers are often seen turning the real events into a melodrama. However, director Tinu Suresh Desai has tried his level best to make the film as realistic as possible but some scenes look overdramatic. Music of the film is in favour of the audiences and it is synchronised well.
Especially the romantic track Tere Sang Yaara which features the blooming romance of Akshay & Ileana. The editing of the film lacks the perfection which makes even good sequences a little draggy! The picturization of film is good and an amazing choice of exotic locales and warships will surely be a treat to your eyes. courtesy:filmibeat
