Radhe movie review: A complete Salman show

There's no doubt that Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai was made especially for the big screen. From superstar Salman Khan's 'Seeti Maar' entry to the climax fight sequence, the movie is aimed to drive the Salman Khan fans go into frenzy and celebrate the actor.

While reports had it that Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai is a remake of the Korean action film The Outlaws, the Salman Khan-starrer exudes the aura of the superstar leaving nothing in store other than glorifying Bhai.

The film begins with Rana (Randeep Hooda), the evil boss in the drug mafia. Rana has shifted his base from Delhi and reached Mumbai to set up his empire there. From spreading terror to selling drugs to students and teenagers, Rana grabs the attention of cops.

Realizing that a powerful officer is needed in the case, the police force assigns Radhe and the rest might be easy for one to guess. Radhe is a fearless rebel cop whose resume boasts 97 encounters and 23 punishment transfers.

In the meantime, Radhe meets Diya (Disha Patani) and falls in love with her at the very first sight. Like every other Bollywood masalas, Radhe tries to impress Diya, who is a model and is also the sister of ACP Avinash. What follows is a series of logic less fun sequences.

By half way, Radhe realizes that Rana isn't like usual criminal and that he needs a perfect plan to catch him. And that's where lies the crux of an action-filled flick within hyper masculine men.

If it was Bhai versus Sonu Sood in Dabangg, in Radhe it's Bhai versus Hooda. Apart from the fact that Hooda appears in a black leather jacket with long hair, the scenario almost seems to be the same like those of Salman Khan's earlier flicks including Wanted.

Well, one has to take note of the fact that Radhe marks the third collaboration between Salman Khan and director Prabhudeva and the two worked together in Dabangg 3 and Wanted. Prabhudeva creates the similar style and swag to the narrative.

It was sad to see Jackie Shroff's character written in a comical manner and his dialogues didn't really fit into the action flick. Disha Pathani was just yet another female character to bring some relief from the actions and for romance.

As a through out Salman Khan show, Radhe might be enjoyed by Bhai fans especially during the lockdown and festive time. However, it might not come as Bhai's most wanted film.
