'Roy' Movie Review: Ranbir Kapoor tries hard to save you from this boredom!

Star cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez


Director: Vikramjit Singh


Producer: Bhushan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar, Krishan Kumar


Claps for: Ranbir Kapoor, Music, Jacqueline Fernandez and exotic locations.


Slaps for: Length of the film, Story


Popcorn Refill: During the interval and songs (if you don't like them)


Story: A romantic thriller by nature, the film is about a mysterious thief named Roy, played by Ranbir Kapoor. Taking inspiration from Roy's robberies, filmmaker Kabir Grewal (Arjun Rampal) makes two movies - 'Guns' and 'Guns 2' and earns huge amount of money. However, he goes through a writer's block while making the third part of his film trilogy 'Guns'. This is when Kabir meets a Bohemian filmmaker Ayesha Amin (Jacqueline Fernandez) who not only changes him as a person, but also helps him complete his script. On the other hand, Roy too meets Tia (Jacqueline Fernandez). How the lives and stories of both Roy and Kabir camouflage, forms the crux of this romantic and suspenseful thriller.


Performances: It is a treat to watch Ranbir Kapoor back on screen after almost a year, his last release being the utterly forgettable 'Besharam'. He plays 'Roy' the thief with elan. Though his screen presence is lesser than the other actor in the film, it can be said that he is the main highlight of the film. He charms you with this mature role. Arjun Rampal on the other hand fails to engage you. He appears repetitive and boring. Jacqueline Fernandez as Ayesha and Tia is cute, beautiful and lovable. Shernaz Patel as Arjun's manager is apt in her role. Anupam Kher's special appearance as the jolly dad is adorable.


Direction: Vikramjit Singh has taken the best of locations, music and actors. But has failed to weave a wonderful script. The story becomes slightly predictable and tends to bore you after a point. In fact, the film is fine up to the interval, however it falls flat in the second half. It appears, the director is trying hard to drag the film and ends up making it messy. Ranbir Kapoor, music & exotic locations are the only saving grace of the film.


Combo on offer: Thriller + Romance + Boredom


Final Verdict: We give the film Slaps for being too lengthy and boring. However, it is a treat for all Ranbir Kapoor fans!
