quick review:

No sizzling plot, just a simmering one let down even more by how the big reveal is revealed.

A celebrated navy officer shoots his wife's lover. Does he get convicted? The lover's sister wants him convicted, the wife wants to save him. In addition, there is some political undercurrent. Rustom promises to be a complex story.

However, we know that many a promising thrillers have been compromised and ended up being called damp squibs. With the grim plot and the serious undertone, I really hope Rustom isn't one of them.

Akshay Kumar is in his serious, “I mean business” mode which makes Rustom free from his otherwise action/comic gimmickry. That aside, the rest of the cast create intrigue too. Let's hope this intrigue stays and lives up to the build-up.
