Ridiculous and undeniable, it's a punchy cartoon, rightly confident of its power to entertain. Why resist?

Apart from Akshay, Sonakshi and Yashpal Sharma, the rest are unconvincing, as is the villainous set-up itself. Fans will love Akshay's mooch-twirling masala-act but be ready for hardcore action too - some pretty gruesome.

Riddled with an array of loud, lame and specious contrivances, Rowdy Rathore plays out pretty much like a comic-book fantasy rendered in the form of a live-action film. Go for it if you must, but don’t expect the earth from it.

The film is one more in the line of movies -- many of which are remakes from the south -- that value masala above all else. But Dabangg and even Wanted, the latter of which was also directed by Prabhu Deva, were far more cohesive and compelling. Rowdy Rathore is pure noise. Only the brave should venture in. Is this entertaining? Not for me. There were a few fun moments. To all the directors, producers, actors who are inflicting eighties-style, low-IQ, deafeningly loud, unapologetically crass, mind-numbing movies on us, I just want to say: Don’t angry me! Don’t exhaust me! Don’t bludgeon me!

Rowdy Rathore lives up to its name in creating too much noise for no reason. It also marks the end of a sensibility called Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Prabhu Deva fails to take the film anywhere, uses a tried and tested formula which may have worked down south but sadly is extremely annoying and garish when remade in Hindi. Watch it for Akshay if you must. But don’t expect his usual antics, they are clearly not there.

It can hardly be called a film, but ah well. Watch it if only to remind yourself of old Khiladi flicks and remember a time when we used to think heroines couldn't get any plumper or sillier than Mamta Kulkarni. Ah, naive youth. Watch Rowdy Rathore only to remind yourself of Akshay Kumar's old Khiladi flicks!

Rowdy Rathore is the kind of movie that's made by people with a cash register in place of their brain. Because no legitimate reason, other than financial gain, can justify why this movie was made – it has no story or plot whatsoever, the characters are entirely forgettable, and it's so long and loud and silly that the laughs dry up early on. That the film has such impressive pedigree – it's produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, directed by Prabhudeva, and stars Akshay Kumar – is both baffling and shameful. Aside from a few moments of inspired lunacy from the film's leading man – who can do this part in his sleep (and probably did!) – Rowdy Rathore comes off as nothing more than a cheap attempt to rob moviegoers of their money! I'd have bet Sanjay Leela Bhansali has no idea what he's produced, except that the film's outtakes reveal that he did in fact visit the set, and hence more than likely knew exactly what film he was making!

ROWDY RATHORE is designed to magnetize the masses in hordes. The accurate blend of action, emotions, drama and humor, besides a superlative performance by Akshay Kumar, makes this motion picture an immensely pleasurable and delightful movie watching experience. If you savor typical masaledaar fares, this one should be on your have-to-watch listing for certain. Dhamaal entertainer!
