After playing an action hero or a goody two shoes in most of his films during his decade old career, Bobby Deol finally got a real nasty character to portray in just released SHAKALAKA BOOM BOOM. No wonder, he has passed the test with flying colors and is gaining appreciation from all over ever since the film hit the marquee.
As a reigning superstar with as many as five consecutive blockbuster albums to his credit, the character of AJ depicted by Bobby is something that could be seen in flesh and blood around you.
Not just Bobby shows the mean side of him so very convincingly; he also is at his scary best as he does backstabbing with a smiling face and a vulnerable persona.
What also makes his portrayal different is the manner he goes about executing his plan, the focal point of which is sabotage the career of RJ [Upen Patel].
Instead of the usual growling and psychotic mannerisms that are usually depicted on screen for revengeful acts, he does so in an utmost humane manner that makes his character even more identifiable and believable.
