The wait is finally over for all the Ranbir Kapoor fans who were eager to watch the Bollywood heartthrob on the big screen again. Roy hit the silver screen on February 13 and we hate to say this, but this Ranbir Kapoor-starrer is a major disappointment!
Roy is the story about Kabir Grewal (Arjun Rampal) who is a renowned filmmaker. Kabir is stuck with the script of his forthcoming venture which is an unusual (love) story of a robber. When he goes to Malaysia, he meets Ayesha Aamir (Jacqueline Fernandez) who turns out to be an inspiration for him to write his film. Though Ayesha and Kabir are poles apart, they eventually fall in love with each other. However, things go wrong and Kabir and Ayesha’s fairytale romance comes to an end. When Ayesha, who is his inspiration, leaves, that is when Kabir stops writing. Roy (played by Ranbir Kapoor) is the main character of Kabir’s film. The story of Roy, the classy robber, thus comes to a standstill.
Post interval, Roy the movie becomes slow and boring, leaving you utterly confused. While most of us thought that Roy would become one of the blockbuster hits of 2015, it has turned out to be a total disaster!
We could see that Jacqueline striving hard on her acting and we have to admit that she has done a much better performance in Roy in comparison to her previous films like Race 2 and Housefull 2. Last seen in Kick, Jacky shares screen space with Arjun and Ranbir for the first time. The Sri Lankan beauty looks ravishing in the film in every outfit she wears!
Arjun Rampal looks effin’ hot every time he dangles the cigarette in his hands. Ranbir Kapoor’s performance was not bad, but we wonder why he chose to star in this film and that too in a supporting role!
Arijit Singh and Ankit Tiwari, both singer-composers, have together scored a classy soundtrack for this Roy, but the film does not do justice to it. READ MORE HERE: Roy Music Review: Ankit Tiwari and Arijit Singh’s classy soundtrack for Ranbir Kapoor’s film
In the start, you may think the movie is intense and extraordinarily exceptional, but you end up being confused! While the trailer of Roy got an overwhelming response, and the audience is going gaga over the songs, let us tell you Roy is strictly meant for Ranbir Kapoor fans although Arjun and Jacqueline look hot in it.
