Movie Review: R…Rajkumar (2013)
Directed by Prabhu Deva and written by Shiraz Ahmed, R… Rajkumar is a Romantic Action Love story set in dusty and rugged backdrop of the Hindi Heartland. A film that has out and out desi tracks (true dance numbers) with loads of intrigue, thrill and fun – a perfect entertainer by all means. The ravines shall tower high over the Poppy Fields, overlooking a dangerous foundation without law, justice or order.
