Written by: A.C. Mughil & Vijay Maurya
Dialogue: Vijay Maurya
How do we know it’s Eid of this year already? Because of Salman’s film coming out, ESPECIALLY to cater to his fans; emphasis being on especially. RADHE – YOUR MOST WANTED BHAI is about Radhe (Salman Khan), a super cop in Mumbai Police Force. He has been transferred several times and has a massive list of encounters to his name. The city is flooded with drugs and more and more kids are falling prey to that. To save the city from falling deeper into the abyss, they get Radhe on board to help clean the city. Besides kicking butts and trying to save the city, he also spends time flirting with his boss’ sister (Disha Patani). What happens and how he saves the city form the rest of the film.
The film is the remake of the hit Korean film THE OUTLAWS with some added Indian tadka, of course. The film is a decent adaptation of the original. This film is meant to cater to a certain audience which it manages to do with aplomb. If people saw the film expecting a Scorsese master class then you will obviously be let down and massively disappointed. Also, the idea of cringing at *certain* things Salman does in the film, should be put out of the head. It is his universe and he is a super cop. The specific audience the film is made for, will
like love that. that being said, the film offers nothing new as such. We see the same Salman in his element, a different universe and a different story. The story is quite predictable and the climax is a little disappointing. This film is exclusively for his fans and single screen audience.
Technically, the film is good. Cinematography by Ayananka Bose is just apt for the mood of the film. Editing by Ritesh Soni is sans complaint. Writing could have been better though, as the film takes a very predictable route and the climax is a letdown too. Action in this film is brilliant. Only two songs stand out… The title song and SEETI MAAR, both of which come in the second half of the film.
Performance wise, the film is good. Salman Khan is at his very best and gives an effortless performance. He makes sure every second of his screen time is filled with grandeur. Disha Patani has a good screen presence but doesn’t have much to do. Salman and Disha have a good chemistry, although it seems a little forced. But their chemistry is much better than in BHARAT. Randeep Hooda is menacing and rivals Salman with his performance in the film. Jackie Shroff adds the funny element in the film, but again feels a bit forced. The rest of the cast offer good support.
Prabhudeva delivers a film he wants and he knows exactly what to do to get the desired result.
