Feature Name: Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai
Cast: Salman Khan, Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda, and Jackie Shroff
Directed By: Prabhudheva
Salman Khan has finally fulfilled his Eid 2021 promise. The actor released his film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai on May 13 and fans have already termed it a blockbuster. The film released in a digital pay-per-view format in India and witnessed a theatrical release in many countries abroad.
The movie follows the story of how cop Salman aka Radhe gets hired for a special mission in the city. However, the actor has his own way of tackling crime and so to bring justice. He fights it out in his own way to restore peace in society. This is an adaptation of the 2017 Korean film The Outlaws.
Radhe is an encounter specialist with 97 encounters and 23 transfers to his credit, in the last 10 years. Now, as the city is in the grip of a dreaded drug mafia, it’s time for Radhe to make a comeback and kick some butt. But between beating up the bad guys and saving lives, Radhe also finds time to flirt with his boss’ sister Diya (Disha Patani).
Director Prabhudheva gives into many such temptations that potentially derail the narrative, but thanks to the relentless action and a formidable villain, the film remains watchable, in parts.
Prabhudheva relies heavily on Salman’s star-power, style and swag to drive the narrative and it works when our leading man is packing a punch. But beyond the action, we are left with filmy dialogues, his lackluster chemistry with Disha Patani, and humorless exchanges with Jackie Shroff, who plays Salman’s superior as a senior cop.
Randeep Hooda is slick and savage in his act and makes every minute on screen, count. There are many other villains in this pack of baddies, who just end up being loud and over-the-top.
Salman hasn’t left any stone unturned to make it a fest for his fans dearly missing since Tiger Zinda Hai. On the other hand, Disha Patani is the perfect eye-candy and adds plenty of glamour to the scenes, but her track is literally counter-productive to the story. The naivety of her character gives her little scope to perform and also dilutes the gravity of the subject at hand.
Radhe is presented by Salman Khan films in association with ZEE Studios, produced By Salma Khan, Sohail Khan, and Reel Life Production Pvt. limited. The movie released in over 40 countries, including a theatrical release in major overseas markets on May 13, 2021, on the occasion of Eid. ‘Radhe’ is available on ZEE5 with ZEE’s pay-per-view service ZEEPlex on the Zee5 OTT platform and all leading DTH operators.
The action stunts have turned out to be a visual delight for fans. We give the film 3 stars. For more updates stay tuned to UrbanAsian.
