Does Rustom pronounce Akshay Kumar guilty for disappointing his fans?


Will he be able to pull a hat trick this year? Rustom is Dharmendra Suresh Desai’s second film (the first was 1920 London, which was released a few months back)

Was Akshay able to pull off the show under Desai’s direction? Let’s explore what Rustom has to show to its audience

com/watch?v=L83qMnbJ198 Rustom is based on a real life event that occurred in 1959, which ended the jury system in the state

Rustom Pavri, played by Akshay Kumar, is an honoured naval officer who returns home unexpectedly from his mission

He decides not to tell his beloved wife, Cynthia Pavri (Ileana D’Cruz) in order to surprise her

He gets the shock of his life when he finds out about Cynthia having an affair with Vikram Makhija (Arjan Bajwa)

In a fit of rage, Rustom kills Vikram and then surrenders himself to the police

When Preety Makhija (Esha Gupta) finds out about her brother’s murder, she hires the best lawyer she knows of, Lakshman Khangani, (Sachin Khedekar) to fight the case against Rustom

What happens next, in and out of the courtrooms, is what Rustom is all about

His acting is precise, to the point, and very calculated

He carries the entire movie on his able shoulders

It’s great seeing Sachin Khedekar playing pivotal roles again – what’s more is that he nails his performance in every frame

Pawan Malhotra’s role as a dutiful police officer is another ace performance in Rustom

He is an underrated actor, but extremely dependable

The same goes for Kumud Mishra

I felt they did not do justice to their respective roles

Arjan Bajwa’s acting is mediocre, whereas the child hawker, Naman Jain, deserves special mention for a solid performance

This child actor keeps getting better and better with every movie

There are some great scenes in Rustom

One of my favourties was when Pawan Malhotra plays chess with Akshay in prison

It was brilliantly executed with a whimsical touch

The courtroom scenes are very well written, the director managed to add a realistic touch to them, making sure they were not over the top

Where music is concerned, Rustom’s soundtrack is decent and not packed with unnecessary/dramatic numbers, as most of the movie comprises of background music

At best, Rustom is a decent watch, albeit not the best one
