Recently watched the Akshay Kumar’s latest-a suspenseful legal thriller “Rustom”. This film has both its heart and brain in the right places. It thrills makes you think, entertains and leaves you to draw your conclusions in the end.
Based on the once famous Nanavati murder case, Akshay dons the lead role and performs the role of an unapologetic Naval officer with aplomb. His expressions are spot on.
The crux of the film with interesting courtroom drama without revealing the spoilers is that of a murder ostensibly committed by Akshay and even after surrendering, does a U turn in court and pleads innocent.
Ileana ably supports him as the wife who has crossed the line of fidelity with a teary but believable performance. Esha Gupta and Pavan Malhotra come up with worthy performances too.
Music is lilting, especially the song “Tere sang yaara” is very hummable; all credit to composer Arko and singer Atif.
Worth a watch!
My rating : 4/5
