  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-3
There's an overdose of masala films. And practically all prominent names have featured in masalathons this year. Take a look: SRK [CHENNAI EXPRESS], Ranbir Kapoor [BESHARAM], Ajay Devgn [HIMMATWALA], Akshay Kumar [BOSS], Sanjay Dutt [ZILA GHAZIABAD, POLICEGIRI],

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-0
Shahid Kapoor plays R...Rajkumar. The R.. was meant to be Rambo. The name was axed because of copyright issues. It is now Romeo. It makes no difference. This is a role that will, and should, haunt Shahid Kapoor: it is empty of all sense and sensibility.

  •  Economic Times -Gaurav Malani Rating-4
When Prabhu Dheva ventured into directing exaggerated action sagas, one wondered on the dancing demigod's diverse choice of genre. Evidently when another dancing sensation Shahid Kapoor chooses to venture into the over-the-top action genre, you have your doubts.

  •  Daily Bhaskar - Rating-4
What if a same dish is served to you every day? You might love it in the beginning, like it for some more days, and finally get bored of it. Every alternate week Bollwood filmmakers are serving audience with the same mundane no-brainer action films, and this week’s

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-2
Prabhu Deva tends to direct a film pretty much like he choreographs a song. He packs both, from end to end, with a frenzied flurry of brisk hand and feet movements and a surfeit of high-decibel musical clatter.The astoundingly lithe dance steps that he conjures up tend to flummox the eyes;

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-4
As we already know the drill, the script has no role to play in such films. It makes no bones about being mindless and I doubt too much effort goes into being that. The story line is silly. Romeo, a petty goon gets hired by the local gangster. It isn’t long before both the protege and

  •  Times of India -Madhureeta Mukherjee Rating-6
He rips, he roars, he rages. He rides roughshod. Like a lovelorn 'Rambo', he rolls his 'R's. He's the riotous R...Rajkumar (R for Romeo!). Once again, a rebellious and raving hero jumps out of Prabhu Dheva's story - loaded with gaon-full of goons, buffoons, 'item' chhoris, less 'silence'

  •  Zee News -Gayatri Sankar Rating-2
The Indian audiences have certainly matured. They are no longer the lot who blow wolf-whistles when the hero single handedly beats up a bunch of goons. ‘R...Rajkumar’ directed by Prabhudheva is what an average movie goer wouldn’t really want to see.Starring Shahid Kapoor,

  •  India Today -Vinayak Chakravorty Rating-4
The petty goon falls for the pretty girl and decides to go straight in life. That's after he has bashed the baddies, busted the underworld, in between found time for naach-gaana and gone bombastic with dialogues.Right... you have seen all of it before, so what's new.

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-3
Romeo Rajkumar (Yes, the big secret to 'R' was that our hero is a big Romeo who believes either in pyaar pyaar pyaar or maar maar maar) lands himself in a lawless village governed by two warring parties Parmar (Aashish Vidhyarthi) and Shivraj (Sonu Sood) who are at loggerheads over

  •  Book My Show -Neha Pinto Rating-5
To put it simply to you, R…Rajkumar is all about Sonakshi Sinha rolling her eyes and pouting every now and then, cute little Shahid Kapoor wooing her and people getting beaten up every fifteen minutes.If we go back to films like Rowdy Rathore, Boss and Phata Poster Nikla Hero,

  •  One India -Nabanita Rating-3
R... Rajkumar, featuring Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha in the leads, is a romantic action flick, that has loads of spoilers to spoil the viewers' mood. Amidst everything, if at all there could be any ray of hope in the movie that could be possibly Shahid and his marvellous performance.


  •  Bollywood Life -Prateek Sur Rating-5
If your dabbawala gave you the same curry everyday of the week, how would you feel? Definitely after a week you would give him a blasting for the mundane monotonousness in your life. Same is the case with most of the Bollywood filmmakers nowadays. Why don’t filmmakers

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-4
What's left to say in a review of a Prabhu Dheva film that hasn't already been said? With Wanted he became the original trendsetter of the new age masala entertainer. By Rowdy Rathore he got a man like Sanjay Leela Bhansali to drop all pretenses and back the circus act that fetched

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
So the very ‘dabangg’ Rajkumar (Shahid) arrives in Bharatpur where two gang-lords compete over “afeem ki kheti” (opium farming). He is immediately recruited by the much-feared Shivraj (Sonu Sood) who likes to bathe in the open as women in low-cut blouses scrub his back.

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-3
Shahid Kapoor's two films clearly show that the actor is trying to reinvent his image. Kapoor wants to rid himself off the tag of that cute romcom guy to take up more action-oriented roles with some comedy, romance and drama thrown in. He rejected Shuddh Desi Romance to do Phata Poster

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-1
Prabhu Dheva's movies are getting as weird as his dance moves. There was a point in time when he was fluid in his dance steps. Now, he is experimenting. In one dance sequence, Shahid Kapoor is fluttering on the floor like a cock whose head has been severed. Prabhu joins him in that sequence.

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-3
Just when you thought that Prabhu Dheva had perfected the art of churning out potboilers with typical southern spicing, ‘R… Rajkumar’ disappoints like nothing else.‘R…Rajkumar’ is the kind of formulaic film that was very popular in the 1970s. When made well, it works because of nostalgic

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-2
Right at the beginning of this film, a mustachioed man says threateningly: ‘Jab convince karna mushkil hai toh confuse kar do’. So we can’t say the film-maker didn’t warn us about the rest of the movie beforehand. Well, since we unfortunately didn’t take the threat seriously and stayed on,

  •  DNA -Tushar Joshi Rating-4
The Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey and the Shahid Kapoor in R…Rajkumar are very two different people. While the former relied on making his character believable, the latter tries very hard to make Rajkumar into this year’s biggest caricature. Desperately wanting to recreate the success

  •  Hindustan Times -Anupama Chopra Rating-3
These days, I'm increasingly getting the feeling that the local multiplex is also doubling up as a time machine. You step in and are straight away transported to the 1980s, otherwise known as the worst decade of Hindi cinema.Two weeks ago, it was Singh Saab the Great.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-1
'R... Rajkumar', directed by Prabhu Deva, is a film so relentlessly ugly, you have to wonder how it qualifies as entertainment of any sort. Like the worst video games, the action scenes here go on and on and on till your brain and your senses are numbed by all the stabbing and punching

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Suparna Sharma Rating-3
To be fair, one can’t really complain about Prabhu Dheva’s 'R... Rajkumar' because he informs and warns us right at the beginning of this ridiculous and rambunctious journey about where he’s taking us — to narak. His almost-dead protagonist, Romeo Rajkumar (Shahid Kapoor), says as much

Err..Grrr... Uff.. Huff.. this is what that come into the viewers mind - what was it all about?.  WTF(where is the film) in this disappointingly cluttered masala circus that cries fouls and demands sorry from Prabhudeva, Eros, Next Generation and all concern who in their generic rush for a
