Raabta: Movie Review
A guy and a girl meet and get attracted towards each other. The girl then meets another stranger and is attracted towards him too. The love triangle moves back in time and we see the trio in a tribal avatar. This is all that Raabta is about.
Raabta is an Urdu word meaning connection and the movie deals with the connection of the three prime characters in the present era as well as the ancient era. What the movie lacks is a connection with the viewers. TRUST ME! You will waste a couple of precious hours of your life watching Raabta on the big screen.
Debutant director Dinesh Vijan thought casting Sushant Singh Rajput would make his movie as big as M.S Dhoni: The Untold Story. Sorry! Mr. Vijan, you need to have a strong script, powerful dialogues, captivating screenplay and a lot more in order to give the audience a watchable film.
Sushant Singh Rajput is charming in the first half and charismatic in the second half. We really don’t expect much from Kriti Sanon but the actress is at no fault. Jim Sarbh would have done justice to his role if he was given the chance.
All in all the film is a complete disaster and it has scarred Rajput’s career very well. The ancient era has been presented with tacky SFX.
Taran Adarsh has aptly tweeted, “One Word Review… Raabta: Terrible Bad writing. Bad direction. Bad acting.”
Rajeev Masand gave the film 1 star out of 5 and said, “This is a movie so singularly pointless, you have to wonder how the writers and the director tricked the financiers into thinking there was a story here worth telling, and why the actors preferred going to shoot every morning instead of sleeping longer hours.”
Anupama Chopra said, “Raabta is a film I file under Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hain category”
Need I say more? 😛
The Raabta song rendition featuring a smoking hot Deepika Padukone is something that you can still watch:
