Review: Roy: Non-thrilling & Non-romantic! *½

ROY: 1.5/5
    Roy is a 2015 Indian romantic thriller film, directed by debutant Vikramjit Singh and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Divya Khosla Kumar and Ajay Kapoor under Freeway Pictures. The movie features Arjun Rampal, Ranbir Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez, in the lead roles with Anupam Kher, Rajit Kapur and Shibani Dandekar in supporting roles. The film is based on a mysterious thief and his theft, robbery and love-interest. The movie had its premiere in Dubai on February 12, 2015 and was released worldwide on February 13, 2015.

          I was expecting a lot from Roy because it didn't look like regular movies in which Ranbir kapoor acts. But now after I am done with it, I can say that it isn't into a good category of movie at all. Director has tried enough to make us believe in whatever he is trying to show it to us through two parallel stories but it's just unconvincing. I did like starting as Arjun Rampal's character is too intense to not take it seriously. But after some point of time, you start disliking him as half of the time he seems to be acting like Shahrukh Khan. Also his character becomes weak with a twist when Jacqueline leaves him behind. In the climax, I managed to understand what actually director wanted to convey. But that didn't act like a thriller but something that didn't let me enjoy the whole movie the way I expected it to.

           I liked few dialogues and conversations that were really directed wonderfully but unfortunately, there aren't many scenes that makes you a fan of ROY. Jacqueline Fernandez looks beautiful throughout and also her acting is watchable and interesting. I found only her to be justifying with her role. Ranbir Kapoor. Why the hell has he been taken into the movie to waste a talent like him? How did he sign the movie at first? I want to know. A charmer that he is, he is almost invisible even in the parts that belongs to him. I just cannot believe what has happened with his career graph after YJHD with the movies like Besharam and then this. The biggest put down of ROY. 

            Rest, songs are wonderful but they have nothing to do with this movie or its story. They are just interruptions. Climax is too weak to come out of theater with open mouths shocked with a thrilling revelation. The movie is boring with few interesting dialogues and philosophical scenes. The direction is lazy because of which you cannot expect yourself smiling but yawning most of the times. The two-plot formula is also idiotically screenplay-ed. In short, you can miss this movie in theater to watch it later on TV or DVD. I give it 1.5 stars out of 5.
