STORY: As Mumbai’s youth fall prey to rampant drug abuse, suspended police officer Radhe (Salman Khan) is recalled for a clean-up mission. But Radhe is towards a mischievous new outlaw Rana (Randeep Hooda), who will hold off nothing to rule the city.
REVIEW: Set entirely in Mumbai, ‘Radhe Your Most Wanted Bhai’ is a Salman Khan campaigner who never tries to be the rest. Radhe is a meeting specialist with 97 encounters and 23 transfers to his credit score within the last 10 years. With the city in the grip of a dreaded drug mafia, it’s time for Radhe to make a comeback and hit it off. But between beating up the dangerous boys and saving lives, Radhe also finds time to flirt with his boss’s sister, Diya (Disha Patani).
For such a typical big ticket Bollywood pot boiler, most of Radhe’s options are on expected tracks. For such films, the struggle is at all times about balancing falling for the clichés and offering something new, while keeping the leisure quotient outrageous. In fact, director Prabhudheva envisions many such temptations that are likely to derail the story, but the relentless movement and a formidable villain keep the film in parts viewable.
While it starts with a high-impact scene, the place where the dangerous man beats up another criminal is a sequence of showdown scenes between Salman and Randeep observing an absolute deal. The motion (by Myeonghaeng and Anbariv) is uncooked, sassy and trendy with various gore.
However, there are too many distractions besides the way. Leading among them is the heroine of the movie Disha Patani. She’s the right eye candy and gives the scenes a lot of glam, but her observation is actually counterproductive to the story. The naiveté of her character leaves her little room for maneuver and likewise weakens the seriousness of the subject. All urgency involves a grinding stop when it’s music and dance time, along with her grooving on some peppy beats in songs that can be positioned very inappropriate. Among them are the titles observation (by Sajid-Wajid) and Dil De Diya, which also includes Jacqueline Fernandez (by Himesh Reshammiya). The background assessment (by Sanchit and Ankit Balhara) is loud, but gives the effect of the desired place.
Prabhudheva relies heavily on Salman’s star power, model and swag to guide the story and it really works when our main man packs a punch. But beyond the motion, we’re left with cinematic dialogues, his lackluster chemistry with Disha Patani and humorless exchanges with Jackie Shroff, who portrays Salman’s superior as a senior cop. Randeep Hooda is slick and ferocious in his act and makes every minute trust the screen. There are a lot of different villains in this pack of bad guys who just find themselves being boisterous and over the top. There’s try-and-infus comedy – through dialogues and conditions – in this hardcore movie, but it certainly doesn’t always work. Due to its scale, ‘Radhe …’ has the weather that benefits an expertise on the big screen, but given the current COVID disaster in India, all Bhai followers should settle for watching this EID launch on a small screen .
We’re not sure that’s essentially the most necessary Bhai movie, but if you happen to be a movement fan there could be plenty of ammo to keep you invested. That aside, ‘Radhe…’ has some seeti maar moments (the showdown between the nice and the bad) and a few strikes and grooves that allow Salman Khan followers to cheer him on, but again.
