Prabhu Deva shot to fame as a director in Bollywood with Salman Khan, Ayesha Takia starrer Wanted in the year 2009. He followed this up with yet another success Rowdy Rathore in the year 2012. The film starred Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha and was produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Post Rowdy Rathore, things have been on a down slide for this ace choreographer turned actor turned director. Year 2013 started with a disaster: Ramaiya Vastavaiya. This film starred Shruti Haasan along with debutant Girish Kumar, Kumar Taurani’s son and was a Hindi Remake of Telugu hit film Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana.
Coming up this Friday, December 6, 2013 is R… Rajkumar, starring Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. Both, have had a very rough patch at the Box Office. Her recent release Bullett Raja with Saif Ali Khan is not carrying promising Box Office reports, needless to say anything about its reviews.
This team of three: Prabhu Deva, Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha are doing all that it takes to promote their film in all possible ways they can, but the reality is that this trio has flops behind them.
Sonakshi inspite of her leg injury is running from pillar to post to promote this film. Also, Shahid who has had a disaster with Phata Poster Nikhla Hero this year is hoping that R… Rajkumar would turn fortunes for him and he may end up this year with a winner at the Box Office.
Now, if one goes by the promos of the film R… Rajkumar, it really does not promise anything new, story wise. Except, the added charm of Bollywood’s heartthrob Shahid Kapoor.
Prabhu Deva has Action Jackson with Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha, Yami Gautam; Shahid has Haider with Shraddha Kapoor; Sonakshi besides Action Jackson has Holiday and Okkadu Remake coming up in 2014.
Well, let’s hope that R… Rajkumar works for this trio and they say goodbye 2013 with a smile.
