The story heads on with the Naval commander Rustom Pavri recalling moments spent with his one true love Sinthiya. But his return is not warmly welcomed. Instead brings the hiding truth to the forefront. Next heard are the 3 gunshots. His surrender completely changes the scene.
It looks a simple open and shut case. But it is only at interval point that Rustom takes a stand and makes the movie more nail-biting and exciting to watch. The whole suspense starts to uncover as he brings together the pieces. It was all pure greed for money that was playing havoc. Rustom and Cynthia still stood strong against the test of times.
Towards the end, Rustom rests his case where jury takes on to decide his fate. But there is more to this story – The revelation by Rustom to Winston Lobo about the reason that led to this murder.
The uniform-clad, dignified naval officer look of the dashing actor Akshay Kumar. The way he carried himself in the courtroom. Attire and accessories of the leading ladies that enhanced their respective characters. The mean, seductive and raunchy appearance of Esha Gupta. Ileana as the meek, cheating wife, Cynthia Pavri, left alone by her husband portrayed the feelings brilliantly.
Arjan Bajwa as Vikram Makhija (owner of Imperial Motor) came across as calculative, greed laid lover and an opportunist friend.
There were certain other characters too that complimented in many scenes. The newspaper publisher, opportunist one who was minting on the case of the Parsi naval commando. The young boy who used distinctive language to sell away the newspapers. The mannerisms and language used by prosecution lawyer Laxman Khangani. The maid Jamna Bai and others!
Rustom has got hummable, soft and lovable music. The song post Rustom’s game of chess -‘Matlab baazi jitne se hai, fir chahe pyada kurban ho ya rani’ is high on energy, its dark and crafty.
The Bombay city of late 50‘s and early 60’s is showed very well.
Akshay Kumar has rightly hit the bulls eye with Rustom. A sure success feather to the actor’s cap. He is already riding high and minted on the grand success of Airlift and Housefull 3.
It seems that Akshay does have a soft corner for uniform and patriotism driven content. Because whenever he dons such character it comes obvious that it will be a blockbuster. And with Rustom the killing suspenseful movie, he is all set to rule the hearts all over again.
It is a thumbs up to the honest, sincere, and decorated naval officer Rustom’s Pavri trial with fate where again he performed outstandingly.
Rustom is a must watch for all fanatical Akshay Kumar fans.
Go grab your tickets to experience this gripping drama, if you truly want to know the truth behind those 3 shots.
