The suspense is finally over. The trailer of Parbhudeva-Salman Khan’s anxiously awaited Radhe: India’s Most Wanted Bhai is out. Does Salman get to say the most celebrated line from Wanted in 2008?
Yes! Yes ! Rejoice, all you Salmaniacs. Becase the rogue cop(Mumbai we are told , needs aspecial non-Khaki law enforcer to be crime free) does say the dialogue about Ek baar jocommitment kar liya.
So wipe that bead of sweat off your brow. Salman doesn’t like stress. In the trailer he beats up dozens of scummy goons ,and a not a drop of sweat, not a hair out of place…Bhai doesn’t like to mess things up. He likes to keep it clean.
“I will clean this city,” he proclaims towards the end of the trailer. Bhai’s adversary on this occasion is Randeep Hooda who, we are told, is polluting the city of Mumbai with drugs.
“We need a cop who uses unconventional means of cleaning the city,” senior cop GovindNamdeo declares in the way Moses must have announced the Second Coming.There is a touch of Biblical heroism in Salman’s clean-the-city act. He is empowered by crowd-pleasing stunts antics and dialogues. This cop is not like Chulbul Pandey from Dabangg. But he could be a distant cousin. A cousin who joined the police force so he could show the family that there is more to law enforcement than becoming cockily comic.
This cop we are told, has 97 encounters to his “credit” . Just the other day I was watching AmitSial play an encounter cop in the series Kathmandu Connection. Sial didn’t appear as heroic in his efforts to “clean” the city as our Radhe. Being Salman Khan comes with its benefits.You get to say lines like, “Your name is Dia? If I ever have a sister I will name her Nadia”and everyone laughs.
Oh, and Salman’s Radhe warns the villain that he won’t be served biryani in jail. “Tere hisse kabairyani hum khayenge idd mein…Eid Mubarak.”
Eid Mubarak to you too, Bhai. Can’t wait to see more of the same.
