Bullett Raja - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Delivers what it promises in the trailers. Lots of "dialogue", earthy style and of course bullets. Unfortunately, it also means repetitive, predictable, and tiring.

After Paan Singh Tomar, I doubt there is going to be a time when I'll not look forward to a Tigmanshu Dhulia film. But I must say I am being pushed a little, with lyrics like "main tamancha, tu meri goli" (I'm a gun, you are my bullet) and "don't touch my body, o more saiyya; tera jala doongi gadda aur takya" (I'll set your mattress and pillow on fire!).

That besides, the trailer doesn't look too inspiring. It comes across as your regular Hindi film, smart-alec goon film. In fact, it comes across as a cheaper version. The dialogue seems over-written in the two minute trailer itself. The slick treatment you saw in the director's earlier films is certainly missing.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the film is going to make any demands from the actors in terms of perforamances. They all seem to be required to exactly what they've done earlier. In fact, Mahie Gill comes across as even more redundant in this film and Jimmy Sheirgill too seems to be required to dumb it down. That leaves Saif Ali Khan and Sonakshi Sinha. You'd expect Tigmanshu Dhulia to make better use of their talents, but I have little hope.

Paradoxically, it is the same name that still makes you look forward to what he can do with typical or worse masala.
