Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai Movie Review:
Salman Khan kept his promise to give a new film to his fans on Eid, even though Kovid-19 forced him to release his film Hybrid. For the past several years, Salman Khan has been making films to suit the likes of his fans. Similar scenes are composed in these films, which are followed by applause and whistles in the cinema hall. When Salman goes to do something different, his fans do not like it. And while repeating the plays there, they are criticized. Salman does not understand what to do if he does?
However, his latest film Radhe is produced in the same style for which Salman is known. Stylish action, vigorous one-liner, Villain’s heroic hero, cool romance and Sukhant after the fight. Radhe lacked just a good story. Do not know why the hard work is not done in Salman’s spice films regarding the story. It is a spicy gravy, with very little vegetable or chicken.
Rana (Randeep Hooda) comes to Mumbai and takes the city under the grip of drugs. Youth are getting destroyed due to drug addiction. The police have failed to clear this mess. Demand arises that this is the work of Radhe’s (Salman Khan) bus. In 10 years, Radhe has had 23 transfers and has done 97 encounters. With this introduction comes the entry of Radhe. Radhe makes a pact with two gangsters in Mumbai and then follows Rana. Rana and Radhey’s hide and seek ends in climax.
It is a Hindi remake of 2017 Korean film ‘The Outlaws’ in which changes have been made to suit the preferences of the Indian audience. It is simply a story of good versus evil or a thief-cop who knows from the first frame what will happen in the last frame. The point is, how will it happen?
Radhe’s debut is excellent. Within 15 minutes, Hero, Heroine and Villain are entered. The romance has a bit of comedy and some interesting scenes are seen. Even though the heroine Dia (Disha Patani) does not know the reality of Radhe, while Radhe has discussions in the entire city. But in Salman’s films, so much detailing is not given attention, nor do those who like him pay attention to these things.
Salman also takes off the shirt in the film. You will question what is new in this? This is a new thing. They do not remove the shirt while fighting, but in a light-hearted scene, they take off the shirt and have a vision of the body and the girls do not run away seeing their bodies, but the girls sigh.
Director Prabhudheva also knew that there is no newness in the story, so he has run the film at a fast pace so that the audience does not think much. He has directed the film keeping in mind Salman’s superstar image. A glimpse of Salman is seen in the character of Radhe. Highlighting Salman’s soft side shows that he thinks for the youth, is against drugs, girls become brave, he has the urge to do something for the weaker section of the society. On the other hand, Salman’s fight scenes have been designed keeping in mind the image of the superstar in which he picks up the goons like luggage and suffocates them with lightning speed.
After the opening hour, the film stumbles, it seems that there is nothing left to say now, then catches pace in the climax. Romantic, fighting and comic scenes continue to loop throughout the film. There is also a dose of songs in between. The songs have not been much of a hit without promotion, but their choreography and picturization are pleasing to the eye.
There are many fight scenes in the film, but they do not impress much because Salman is seen doing everything very easily, he does not have any kind of problem. There is a mess in portraying Randeep’s character as Villain. Sometimes they appear to be common hooligans and sometimes of international level, due to which the film seems weak at times.
Salman as Radhe maintains his dominance throughout the film. He is handsome, relax and cool, and presents Radhey’s character in the same fashion as his fans want. He is good in the action scene. Also, his performance in romantic and comic scenes is also good.
Disha Patni leaves her impact as Diya. They have got good scenes in the first hour, but have been forgotten in the second hour. Jackie Shroff’s character is comic touch and could have been given a bit more footage. Randeep Hooda has been effective as the villain. His look, dialogue delivery and acting make him dangerous.
Ayananka Bose has shot the film in an excellent manner. His work is of international level and this is also a big reason that you are attached to the film. The film has an editing sharp and is the shortest film as Radhey Salman’s career span of less than two hours.
For the past one and a half years, we are away from this kind of masala film, so seeing Radhe, this ‘hunger’ can be eradicated and the pain of coronavirus can be forgotten. Although the Radhe OTT platform has also been released, it is not tailored to OTT content but to the audience’s choice of moviegoers.
While watching Radhe, the most important thing is that it has to be seen at home. It is impossible to miss the atmosphere created by watching Salman’s film between his fans on the big screen with seats and applause.
