- Back in action, full force: though he thinks he is equally adept at all genres including, heh heh, comedy John’s forte is clearly action. He proved it in Force three years ago. He’s back in action Rocky Handsome.
The director in Rocky Handsome is Nishikant Kamat who direted John in Force and thinks John has the personality and passion to be India’s finest action star.
Rocky Handsome is the official remake of the Korean action The Man From Nowhere which is regarded as one of the most stylish action films in recent times.Kamat and John have not copied any of the action scenes from the original.
John teams up with the Thai stunt co-ordinator Kazu Ptarick Tang known for his work in films likeDragonwolf and Raging Phoenix. The stunts in Rocky Handsome are killers.
Nishikant Kamat excels in doing dark desperately urgent thrillers about protagonists for whom time seems to be running out. Remember Sandeep Kulkarni in Dombivali Fast? Ajay Devgan in Drishyam? John Abraham in Force?
Then there is the emotional angle thrown in for good measure. John shares a very special rapport with a little girl Diya Chalwad who is a wayward neighbour’s daughter whom John is saddled with.Sounds familiar? Yes, it is the same tear-drenched kind of rapport that [tooltip id=”88b6af99531f838ed90aed058b7d870a”][tooltip id=”c1b465420d07c688942ed18eadfd9f92″ keyword_color=”#000000″ background_color=”#ffffff”][tooltip id=”4db8f5608d45f5de7881d9bce162f4bf”]Salman Khan[/tooltip][/tooltip][/tooltip] shared with little Harshaali Malhotra in BajrangiBhaijaan.
An emotional rapport between a strong silent macho hero and little lost vulnerable child never fails. Remember Rajnikanth and little Hrithik Roshan in Bhagwan Dada?
Shruti Haasan who plays John’s romantic interest has already proved lucky for John Abraham in Welcome Back. She plays the bumped-off beloved, the woman for whom John’s character grieves.
The name Rocky has always proved lucky at the boxoffice. Shammi Kapoor in Teesri Manzil was named Rocky. And Sanjay Dutt made his debut in a film of that title. And who can forget Rocky Balboa?
Clear Window of a 3-day weekend for Rocky Handsome. It’s Good Friday next week when the film releases. Going to be a good Friday for the film with the only competition being the Hollywood biggie Batman Versus Superman.
