Story

Raabta is the story of Shiv (Sushant Singh Rajput) who moves to Budapest after which he falls for Saira (Kriti Sanon) instantly on the first sight. He finally convinces and by the time Saira falls for Shiv, the third character Zak (Jim Sarbh) who is a liquor baron. He is fond of Saira and is obessed with her after several rejections. It is during this time Saira starts thinking about how her bond with Shiv seems beyond the transcends of time and decades. The rest of Raabta is all about the past and what happens next. Watch the film to know about many interesting facts.

Raabta has some interesting moments and the romantic episodes which will sure impress a set of young audience. But this alone is not enough for a film to end up impressive. Raabta has many poorly written episodes and most of them look fake. Things change within fraction of seconds and the film switches a romantic saga to the deadly Game of Thrones which is something hard to digest. The songs have been decent but the characters have not been linked good. With many flaws, the first half of Raabta tries hard to convince the audience.

At the same time, the second half of Raabta too suffers huge lag because of the poor writing and narration skills. Most of the episodes have been loosely executed and looks outdated. Sushant Singh Rajput seems hyper active in many of the episodes and some of the characters have been utterly wasted. Jim Sarbh has been extremely stupendous on screen but his character has not been written well. With a poor second half, Raabta ends up on a dull note and it completely fails to impress the audience.

Performance :

Sushant Singh Rajput is one of the finest actors undoubtedly however he seems to be over-active in most of the scenes. He performed with ease and Sushant has been exceptional in the romantic episodes. Kriti Sanon delivered out her best and she looked stunning on screen but she needs to improve a lot with her expressions. Jim Sarbh has been deadly in the assigned role and he performed with ease. However his character has not been well written. Rajkumar Rao and Varun Sharma have been wasted completely. All the other actors did justice for their assignments.

The story of Raabta has interesting points though it resembles many old films. The screenplay and the dialogues have not been taken enough care of. They look outdated and many of the episodes miss the logic. The music and the background score have been decent and so is the cinematography. The production values have been lavish but Dinesh Vijan fails completely in churning out Raabta into an impressive action drama.

Final Word

Raabta is a huge misfire and fails badly in impressing the audience. Though the romantic drama impresses, the rest of the film makes Raabta a huge dud.

    Bareilly Ki Barfi Movie Review

    Bareilly Ki Barfi has been inspired from a French novel 'Ingredients of Love'. The movie has been adopted as per the nativity of Uttar Pradesh. The first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi has been entertaining however most of the episodes look dragged and some of them spotted unnecessary. The performances by the lead actors and the songs have been decent which makes the first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi passable. The second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi struggles as the director misses the major plot. Focused much on unwanted issues, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi is an utter disappointment. Once again, the lead actors top the show and it is the entertainment which makes the film sound decent at times. The climax looks simple and on the whole, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi fails to live up the expectations.

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message. Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.

    Jab Harry Met Sejal Movie Review

    Jab Harry Met Sejal has many layers and some of them have been well narrated. The entire first half has been passable but it is the slow plot and some unwanted episodes that kill the film’s flavour completely. The songs look decent and they have been shot well. The quirky comedy and the narration makes the first half of Jab Harry Met Sejal passable. The second half of the movie looks dragged and some of the episodes have been hurried which are quite crucial. Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma have been extremely impressive in their roles. The locations and the cinematography are the major highlights of the second half. The climax has been shot well and impresses the audience. On the whole, the second half of Jab Harry Met Sejal disappoints.

    Mubarakan Movie Review

    Mubarakan is completely based on comedy and is a hilarious laugh riot right from the first frame. The story has been framed well and the songs have been placed and shot well. Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor carried the film well and they are the major highlights of the movie. Their comic timing has been simply superb and the entire first half has been filled with loads of entertainment.The second half of Mubarakan too has been laced with enough entertainment however the film dips down at times. Some of the episodes look dragged and some of them have been hurried. The entire second half looks predictable and the climax has been simple, rushed. On the whole the entire second half has been ok.

    Indu Sarkar Movie Review

    Indu Sarkar has many interesting and realistic episodes and the film showcases the struggle of a woman. Each and every character has been well written and well presented. With an interesting twist, the first half convinces the audience and Madhur Bhandarkar works hard not to miss his mark. The dialouges are the major assets of the film. The second half of Indu Sarkar has been completely focussed on the struggle and Indu Sarkar may not appeal to all the sections of audience. However the gripping narration and the power packed performances lead the film completely. The pre-climax episodes heat up the film and the climax has been well presented. On the whole, Indu Sarkar has been decent but it may not appeal to all the sections of audience.

    Munna Michael Movie Review

    Munna Micheal starts on an interesting note however the film loses the grip. Most of the episodes look fake and the characters have not been written well. The songs and the performances by the lead actors have been impressive and lot of time has been wasted for the major plot to be unveiled. There is no strong purpose, but Munna shifts his base to Delhi suddenly. On the whole the first half of Munna Micheal has been below the average line and makes no impact.The second half of Munna Micheal has been completely half baked and it makes no sense. The performances by the lead actors has been completely impressive but the rest of the movie is a huge misfire. The songs have been shot well and Niddhi has been presented in a glamorous way. The second half looks confused and clumsy. The climax looks like everyone in the film along with the audience have been lost. On the whole, Munna Micheal is a complete misfire in all the available ways.
