ROWDY RATHORE is heating up well with immense buzz around it even as just a week remains for its arrival. The promos have done the trick and the songs are popular as well which means half the battle has already been won when it comes to the film getting a bumper opening at the box office. With action ruling the roost and Akshay returning to the mode after quite some time, one looks forward to an out and out 'masala' entertainer here.
"When you would see the film, you would realise that there is a strong emotional connect in the film as well. It isn't one of those mindless action masala entertainers where there is one action sequence coming after another. Here a character does what he is supposed to be doing in a given situation," details director Prabhudheva, "Akshay is doing what a Rathore is supposed to do when he turns Rowdy."
In the middle of this all, there is 'desi girl' in the form of Sonakshi Sinha. While she had a similar persona in her debut film DABANGG as well, one wondered whether in ROWDY RATHORE she would go through any change. However Prabhudheva felt that her 'desi girl' image suited the film perfectly.
"Yes, that aspect has been retained. She is as 'desi' as it gets and if the kind of appreciation which is coming her way is any indication, her on-screen avatar has been accepted by the audience again," smiles Prabhudheva before signing off.
With music by Sajid-Wajid, ROWDY RATHORE releases all over on 1st June.
