‘Bullett Raja’, as the name suggests is a movie which deals with three things. Bullets, bullets and bullets. But, hey the bullets are not unlimited like we see in most movies. They are limited and run out at important segments in the film. 
Unlike Tigmanshu Dhulia’s usual style of film making, the movie is a commercial entertainer that has its share of romance, action, music and of course an item number too. 
The movie pans around two friends, Raja, played by Saif Ali Khan and Rudra played by Jimmy Shergill who turn out to become ruffians following a series of events that happen in their personal life. The rest of the story is about how they tough it out amidst the other thugs around them.
Saif Ali Khan, though portrayed as a mass hero, does not blurt out unnecessary punch dialogues nor does he whack a hundred people around him in a single blow. His friendly connect with Jimmy Shergill pushes the action packed drama over the edge and the gun fights they involve themselves in are worth a definite watch. The movie deals with more guns and bullets rather than muscles and knuckles and the script does not give you much time to lean back and stretch your legs.
Tigmanshu has portrayed a combat for money, pride and power between politicians, policemen and thugs and most of the characters that feature in the movie possess unclean pairs of hands that either carry blood stains or bundles of black money.
Jimmy Shergill’s performance has matched up to the scalawag-ish nature of the script and some of the magnified action sequences, like the bike flying over the railway gate, can be pardoned considering the class Raja and Rudra pull off.
Sajid-Wajid, though not too impressive with the songs, have managed to apply some glue on the seats with the background score. ‘Don’t touch my body’ is a notable song among the lot and Mahie Gill’s steaming moves add spice to the number.
Vidyut Jamwal’s screen presence etches out as an interesting addition to the film and his intro action sequence is a treat to watch although it slightly pans away from the core plot. His bold somersaults and flying kicks suit the talented super cop he plays and you just can’t stop him from walking away with all the credits.
Sonakshi Sinha, unfortunately does not have too much to offer, but she is the pretty lady that she always is. 
The director takes Saif Ali Khan and team on a hideout trip to locations like Mumbai and Kolkata. But the songs that appear in the locations might make you get the feeling that the ‘hideout’ reason is just an excuse. Although the movie is nothing that we have not seen before, the scripting ingeniousness within Tigmanshu Dhulia works as strong oars that push the movie forward.
Verdict: Go for it. You have nothing to lose.
( 2.75 / 5.0 )
