Akshay Kumar is that one superstar who just doesn't know how to stop being in the news!
Yesterday the Khiladi started shooting for ROBOT 2.0 (Akshay Kumar set to rock in Tamil Nadu with ROBOT 2.0! -) and today we came across his RUSTOM poster, which has the tagline – 3 shots that shocked the nation. Also, to give that kind of an impact, the poster has three bullet shots on the ‘O' of the RUSTOM.
Now, from what we hear, the movie may be based on the Nanavati case of 1959. For those who don't know the case – it was about a naval officer whose wife was involved in an extra-marital affair. Now the person she was dating seemed to be Nanavati's friend, but in certain mysterious circumstances, Nanavati killed the man and the case shook the whole nation, especially because it involved a high-society Parsi naval officer killing a bigshot (who was termed a playboy by the weekly tabloid Blitz). In fact, the case was so popular that Peddlers on the street sold Ahuja Towels and toy Nanavati Revolvers.
Thus we believe the movie might be a mystery murder, which is a new genre Akshay will explore since a long time. From what we see in the poster, it looks like Ileana plays the cheating wife who later realizes her mistake. If based on the case, Ileana looks perfect as a Parsi lady, but Akshay Kumar only convinces in the uniform.
However, what's interesting that it is being heard that the concept has been adapted by many earlier - the 1963 suspense thriller YEH RAASTE HAIN PYAAR KE directed by R.K. Nayyar, starring Sunil Dutt in the lead role being the first and then Gulzar's movie ACHANAK with Vinod Khanna in 1973. After around 3 decades later, Akshay Kumar's RUSTOM seems to again touch upon the concept, and from what we hear, Pooja Bhatt's LOVE AFFAIR is also on the same case.
There definitely would be something interesting to this case, which is why it is being remade so many times. While the poster doesn't highlight something in a great manner, let's look at how RUSTOM fares at the Box Office and if it will help continue his success streak. We're hoping for the best though!
