Roy Hindi Movie Review

Ratings:1/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN
Did anyone who was attached to the film actually read the script before showing up on set? The one strength of the film is its terrific soundtrack, even if those infectious dance numbers do pop up in not all the right places. But that’s faint praise for a movie that limps lethargically for close to 2 hours and 30 minutes, all but collapsing in a predictable twist ending that you’ve guessed a long time ago.I’m going with one out of five for Roy. The unintentionally funny dialogues aside, it’s unlikely that you’ll be smiling very much through this misery.

Vikramjeet Singh has penned a story which is far from engaging or interesting. That it moves at a painfully slow pace and thereby tests the audience’s patience is just one of the many problems. On the whole, Roy is a confused film which will confuse the audience more than it would entertain. Despite a hit music score, it will prove to be a flop fare at the box-office.

Debutant director Vikramjit's premise is uncommon; the execution is stylish - with beautifully captured actors and ambience, but it turns into an emotional drama (often too complex) rather than a taut romantic thriller. It's glazed with visual appeal and style (champagne, cigar, et al), and evokes curiosity too, but the soul of the plot fades into thick clouds of smoke.

As far as the film is concerned, debutante Vikramjit Singh steps into Bollywood with a film that is slow paced and long. His sense of storytelling needs to be more polished than this one. Brownie points to Singh for having captured the luscious beauty of Malaysia in its raw essence. On the whole, ROY is a film to be watched if you are a fan of thriller movies with some soul-stirring music.

I don't know yeh film kaise ban gayi,' wonders Arjun Rampal in one of the most honest moments of the baffling, boring Roy.Roy is so tangled in its inflated, erratic ideas of a pseudo mystery around parallel lives and loves that it ceases to make sense even before it takes off. Mostly, though, it's just slow torture.

 The director, who is also the co-writer of the dialogue, knows the primacy of a kahani, if the lines his characters spout are any indication. He does not, however, follow it up with tangible action.One character puts it unambiguously: if a story is not going anywhere it is best to cut it short.But where, pray, is the story in Roy?Recommended only if you want to use the auditorium for a relaxing catnap. Roy will not wake you up.

So here are my questions. Who wrote this? Who is it for? The mystery and the enigma, which are set up lazily and obviously, never really take root. I haven’t seen something as fuzzy and dreary as ‘Roy’ in a long time : just what is Ranbir Kapoor doing in a movie like this?

I'm told releasing a film is not easy. One has to have a good story, get the cast in place, and convince a producer to back it and then get a studio to release it. After all kinds of checkpoints it's appalling that this film has made it to the theatres.

Roy will stun your senses – because there hasn’t been a film this boring, this ridiculous and this pretentious since the time you can remember. Singh stretches his idea so much that after a point, you start wondering if this is a film at all. Roy is boring, exhausting and pretentious – save your money and time by staying away.

Royis at the core of it all a love story which finds a mysterious representation. If you are bored of watching cheesy romantic films and wish to watch a film that apes Hollywood style story telling with a desi plot, this one is for you. Could make up for a Valentines watch minus all the ‘mujhe tumse pyaar hogaya hai’ type drama.

Roy, which showcases Rampal as maverick filmmaker Kabir Grewal, is high on style and resembles a slick music video rather than a taut psychological drama.Watch this if your are in the mood to see a pair of good-looking men act like boys. .

  3. Glad the movie offers something different other than the regular heists we see in movies - its not just about a thief and how he manages to steal the artifact with the clever use of technology and techniques, its a story that forces you to mull over life in general by asking many poignant questions - try it if you are one with patience and depth, not just one for action sequences.

  10. ROY:
    A painful writer’s block!

    Never judge a book by its cover; and a film by its trailer. Looks can be deceiving. Debutante writer-director Vikramjit Singh’s self-indulgent thriller ROY falls for the same. Suggestively projected as a romantic thriller with some nail-biting tension and edge-of-the-seat action, it is actually a slow, dreary and superficial psychological thriller that travels far too many places but reaches nowhere. Though it is not some Herculean task to anticipate the flight of a thriller having a writer in it as its main lead, Vikramjit Singh tries his best to create a perfect setting for a perfect thriller but couldn’t bless it with a taut story to pull it off.

    Writers live their lives through their characters. Characters walk through pathways their creators have crafted for them. And then there are blurred lines in the narration where they both transit into each other’s territory. It may sound easy and simple as lighting a cigarette but it is not when you are a first-timer. Filmmaker Kabir Grewal [the stylishly cool and casual Arjun Rampal] is a perfectionist in almost everything he does and as precise as those three cubes of ice in his favorite drink. His sources of inspiration were categorically been the women in his life. 22 to be exact! And now, he is facing writer’s block. Enters Ayesha Aamir [Jacqueline Fernandez] another filmmaker from London [probably to give Miss J’s distant accent a valid reason]! Kabir starts stealing moments from his relationship with Ayesha to complete his third film about a mysterious serial thief Roy [Ranbir Kapoor in a well-coined dynamic role] but before he could meet the end, Ayesha is gone.

    In ROY, Vikramjit Singh gives us a shiny-glossy world as much high on style and sophistication that even the statutory ‘smoking kills’ caption on the screen is written in some fancy font. The psychosomatic bond between the writer and his creation is, though, well-thought; it often gets confusing with a not-so neat & clever screenplay mixed abruptly with the romantic track. The dried out dialogues forcibly talking heavy just for the sake of sounding profound low down the shades of an engaging thriller. One of the high-points in the film takes more than an hour to show up where Kabir & Roy are seen coming ‘not exactly’ together but in one frame. Smartly written and brilliantly shot! Writer’s block allowing the leading man in the film within film in a long-waiting ‘stay where you are’ situation is another smart piece in the writing. Sadly, these are very few in numbers and placed at a tiring distant interval.

    Cinematography captures it beautifully; be it the picturesque locations in Malaysia or the esthetically rich sets. Arjun Rampal looks more like coming straight from one of his shoots for fashion magazines. So does Jacqueline but then, there is a lot more to comment on her acting skills; an ineffective effort she needs to do better in. Ranbir Kapoor is the only saving grace for the film. He gives screen the much-needed depth and a starry presence that could make your being there an endeavor worth taking. Well-shot songs are also reasonably good part.

    To end, ROY suffers multiple climaxes in the most frustrating screenplay. The comments given to the film within the film like, “Finally, it’s over!”, “pata nahin, yeh film kaise bann gayi?” and “yeh film toh mujhe duba hi degi” help none but to express the exasperation viewers feel and face while seeking out quick exit from the theater. Watch out if you have tons of patience, and love and likings for Ranbir Kapoor! Writer’s block is a painful state for writers; this time it’s for viewers too! [2/5]

    REVIEW OF ROY
    Terrible story..
    I still didn't get the Story I'm still confuse what happened ' this and that's' no story at all. They try to make a classy Hollywood style type of movie and failed badly as HELL. All you can see is smoking smoking and smoking and (drinking some point) to be a classy rich type.. I badly need a F word here to use. Headache as its best. Music ammmm download it some tracks are good to hear two or three times thanks to arjit Singh..
    Nothing in movie which I wait for after the trailer was release but you were fooled.
    Thank you.

  17. Roy is one such tormenting cine experience which can make even a devil beg for his life. Be it story, screenplay or the performances everything pertaining to this cackle cine chronicle of Vikramjit Singh is so shoddy that you start losing your faith in the cine making capability of our Bollywooders. But if we look at the brighter side of "Roy" than it is thoroughly educative for budding cinematicians too because it somewhere down the line educate them about WHAT NOT TO DO? If they really want to avoid the bestrew of the viewers for tormenting them. Therefore keeping view the presence of sinewy performer like, Ranbir I am going ahead with one out five for this codswallop painful trudge which doesn't deserve anything more than a half star.

  18. With films like ‘Barfi’, ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ and ‘Rocket Singh’, Ranbir Kapoor has earned himself a name. But his last film ‘Besharam’ was a major setback to his career. Now all expectations of his fans lie on his new film Roy, whose music is already topping the charts.

    Kabir Grewal (Arjun Rampal) is a film maker popular for his series of thriller films called ‘Guns’, based on a mysterious thief Roy (Ranbir Kapoor). Kabir decides to shoot the third installment of his film in Malaysia where he meets Ayesha Amir (Jacqueline Fernandez), a London based film maker. Kabir, seeking an inspiration for his film, falls for Ayesha in no time. But his past track record with his twenty two ex –girlfriends, make things uncomfortable for Ayesha, who also leaves him soon. In a parallel world, Roy (Ranbir Kapoor) is planning to steal a million dollar painting from Tia (also played by Jacqueline Fernandez), owner of a large estate in Malaysia.
    How these two stories co relate to each other defines the premise of Roy (the film).

    Debutant director Vikramjeet Singh’s Roy more or less tries to be an art film. The slow pace with which the film moves forward is sure to give you a pain in your head. I don’t have any idea what the film makers actually wanted out of their film. I guess they were clueless about it too and that’s why they ended up making such a thing. The only soothing thing about Roy is its music, ‘Sooraj Dooba Hua Hai’ and ‘Tu Hai Ki Nahi’ being my favorite.

    Ranbir Kapoor adds yet another flop to his career. He never impresses you with his acting skills anyways. Arjun Rampal looks so dull and weak which is definitely not his personality. Jacqueline Fernandez is no relief either. Anupam Kher, in a cameo, is decent.

    If you haven’t had a headache in the last few days, go watch Roy. Believe me, Roy is such a bore.

    Rating- 1/5

  19. Ranbir Kapoor has cheated the audience by allowing his face to be used for the promotions of this film and songs. Utter crap from begining to end, this film is being recommened to insomniacs by doctors to help them sleep. How do films like these get green lit by people?? Losing faith in bollywood with every new release. Shameful state of bollywood is forcing me to keep my money safe in my pocket and watch these films on tv or on torrents.

  21. Roy is a well attempt by Debutant Director Vikramjit Singh..Bollywood doesn't offer us these kinds of movies yet,still it could have been made much much better..The main usp of the movie is its unique storyline and the screenplay.All the actors performed quite nicely.The Music of the movie is really good along with the background score.Direction is somehow ok .It s really appreciable the way director thought of making such a movie with an unique storyline but he couldn't succeed in presenting the same..Overall the film is Average...My rating 2.5/5
