Review: Raabta: Nothing new to showcase! **½

1595th BLOG POST -->>

I remember reading an article which announced the movie “Raabta” with Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon as lead actors. I was pretty excited for the movie as Kriti is one of the new actresses whom I like for their freshness and also, because the movie was said to be a different love-story. Later on, when the promos came out and people started talking about its similarity with a South blockbuster movie, it arose my excitement again as I knew that it is not going to be similar to it. Now, I wanted to know how different and unique the movie is.

After watching it now, I can say that Raabta is an ambitious movie for its director, Dinesh Vijan, but it has nothing new to give to the Hindi movies’ lovers. There are a few category of audience which likes the same genre of movie irrespective of multiple times the same story is shown in different movies. For them, Raabta is going to be a great movie but in terms of uniqueness, the movie is just trying to be different but does not end up creating something worth exploratory and clap worthy.

The first half is same like Befikre or many movies we have seen featuring Saif Ali Khan, Preity Zinta etc. - the couples falling for each other in a foreign land with great locations and roads in background. It makes the movie look rich but there’s nothing new in the plot. For a person who likes watching modern love stories, the first half is bang-on. Even I liked it to some extent. Talking about the entry of Jim Sarabh, the movie starts looking fake as Saira’s love towards him irrespective of her intense love affair with Shiv is hard to digest.

The second half is more about the past-birth of all the three characters and what happened then is shown descriptively and story returns back in the present day after which it is only about run and chase. The climax is also sort of predictable. Talking about the performances, Kriti Sanon does her part of charming girlfriend incredibly in the movie. Sushant Singh Rajput is great as modern lover but does not leave any impact with the past-birth portion of being a warrior. Jim Sarabh is just okay in his part. His dialogue delivery doesn’t impress you enough which the director is trying to enforce as his X-factor in the movie. The dialogues are fine. The music is very good. Overall, the movie is okay for one-time watch but it has nothing new to deliver. I give it 2.5 stars out of 5.

Thanks.
