Director: Kunal Deshmukh
Story: Parveez Shaikh
Cast: Emraan Hashmi, Humaima Malick, Paresh Rawal, Kay Kay Menon, Deepak Tijori
 
We all know the formula by now. Mr. Hashmi, a few Paki ingredients (this time it is the leading lady), groovy songs, street smart dialogues, some suspense (which we don’t care about) and a few scenes to show of Emraan’s special ‘skills’! But hey, this one has a nice plot too.

Raja Natwarlal is for those who are not going to give a damn to this review and buy the front row tickets and watch their serial kisser on big screen who is back after a long time to what he does best!

Talking about the story, it is about this street-smart conman Raja (Emraan) whose partner in crime, his Big Brother cum philosopher (Deepak Tijori) gets murdered by the orders of Vardha Yadav (Kay Kay). They steal huge amount of cash which belongs to Yadav. Raja seeks revenge and joins hands with a retired conman Yogi (Paresh Rawal), learning from whom he makes a plan to con the cricket-frenzy villain, Vardha Yadav.

Please don’t ask what’s the role for the Pakistani beauty here. Because even we are still wondering about the same. But we got to admit that she looks gorgeous and moves her hot body with a lot of sensuousness!

The plot had promises to become a gripping film. But the director and screenplay-writer decided to make it look like a convenient comic con-man story making it all predicable. Also the cameraman forgot to shot it in an interesting and sleek manner. So much so that he forgot to showcase the beauty of Cape Town (yes, our baddie stays a plush villa there).

Many a times, you may feel like sleeping (you may do so. Nothing that you will miss). But it is the smartly executed climax that brings the film back on track and makes you take a note of happenings on screen.

Emraan is in good form here, but I felt bad for Paresh Rawal and Kay Kay Menon who definitely saw some potential in the script before director decided not to explore much from these seasoned actors. Humaima does her job well and looks smashing. Before passing any comment on her performance, we should give her one more chance to prove herself. It is nice to Deepak Tijori on screen after a long time, though in a plump avatar.

Raja Natwarlal had potential but it is an opportunity wasted. Still, it can be a one-time watch for Hashmi fans.

2 Shor out of 5!
