Rowdy Rathore is a full throttle mass entertainer offering action, emotion, drama, dance, romance in the right dose.
Shiva [Akshay Kumar] is a small-time con man who falls in love with Priya [Sonakshi Sinha]. Into this picture perfect world enters six-year-old Neha, who inexplicably believes Shiva to be her dad. And if this wasn't bad enough, Shiva also becomes the object of a series of life threatening attacks by a gang of deadly criminals who seem to know something he doesn't. While trying desperately to save his life and love, Shiva stumbles upon a deadly secret. A secret that will take him to a small town in Bihar; a town terrorized by a ruthless person [Nassar].
Prabhu Dheva handles the subject with utmost ease. Even though the plot is very predictable, the screenplay is freshly handled, thanks to the many clap-worthy situations interlaced in the narrative. Santosh Thundiyil's cinematography is first-rate. Music composers Sajid-Wajid deliver a super hit album. Dialogues by Shiraz Ahmed are excellent.
Akshay is cast in a double role -- one as a cop and the second one as a petty thief -- and he performs extremely well in both the roles. Akshay's performance in this film is award-worthy. Sonakshi plays a lovable, charming yet impish character very well. Nassar is superb as the antagonist. All the other actors suit the bill perfectly well.
On the whole, ROWDY RATHORE will appeal to the masses as well as the classes. It is a thorough entertainer all the way!
