Rush Movie Review

Rajeev Masand didn’t review Rush this week

Ratings:2/5  Rush Review by Taran Adarsh Site:Bollywood Hungama

RUSH could’ve transformed into an invigorating tale, eye-catching, soul-piercing take on ambition, aspiration and salvation, but it meanders into the predictable zone after a great start, giving you the feeling of déjà vu on several occasions. The writing is markedly foreseeable, with the screenwriter opting for the predictable stuff. However, a few individualistic sequences do stand out, but they are few and far between. There were seeds of a riveting thriller, but the plot hangs loose at various critical and decisive junctures. There’s a glimmer of hope prior to the climax, with those moments getting a grip of things, but the culmination is tame, quite a letdown. On the whole, RUSH looks like a rushed job. It could’ve been an interesting take on ambition and aspiration, but it comes across as a half-baked product.

Ratings:2.5/5  Review by Srijana Mitra Das Site:Times of India

First, the good news – Rush has an interesting plot and great detailing, the latter unusual in Bollywood. But there’s bad news too – no amount of lip gloss, nor shiny suits can hide poor acting, which Rush features plenty of. In the second half, Hashmi does wade into the deeper end, exposing a criminal-media nexus – but after too much waffling with cliches, it’s too little, too late.Still, while not the relentless thriller it could’ve been, Rush offers some slick seconds.But despite all that, Rush lacks zip – plus, Hashmi doesn’t kiss.So much for adrenalin, dude.

Ratings:1/5  Rush Review by Rohit Khilnani Site:Rediff

Quite a few filmmakers seem to be fascinated by the television media business. But whether it was the Amitabh Bachchan starrer Rann or Emraan Hashmi’s latest film Rush, none of them even get their basic facts right.Emraan Hashmi plays his part with honesty but it doesn’t look like his contribution will save this film. After a series of hits and critically acclaimed roles this one will do no good to Hashmis’ rising career. The shooting style in a lot of scenes and even the songs with spot lights on actors gives the feel of the 1980s cinema.We cannot recommend Rush.

Ratings:3/5  Review by IANS Site:NDTV

Far-fetched, yes. But Rush has its adrenaline rushing moments in the second half when the narrative picks up momentum and moves steadily towards a climax that is not entirely edge-of-the-seat. Emraan as the backbone of plot performs decently. He has more speaking lines and less kissing to do here than in all his recent films. Whether the verbosity actually translates into something substantial or not is debatable.Rush has the bone though not enough meat to make for a juicy fare on the excesses of television journalism. It leaves you wondering what director Shamin Desai would have done with his film making career had he lived.

Ratings:—-  Review by Komal Nahta Site:ETC

The entire drama is so slow and long-drawn that it fails to involve the viewer. Viewed differently, the film has almost no romance, meek comedy, lacklustre drama and zero emotions. Even the climax is hurried. On the whole, Rush is too routine a fare to make its mark at the box-office. It is only Emraan Hashmi’s stardom which will prevent it from going completely unnoticed. Flop!

What’s Good: Hashmi’s decent performance, Eye-candy Chak De India star Sagarika Ghatge on screen after a hiatus, JazzyB’s song Fukraa What’s Bad: Botched up Screenplay, Too much Dialogue-baazi, lack of intensity.Loo Breaks: Quite a few.Watch or Not: Watch it ‘only’ if you are an Emraan Hashmi fan.

Ratings:1.5/5  Review by Mayank Shekhar Site:Dainik Bhaskar

This one seems to be set in an alternate universe, where laws and police don’t exist, and television ratings rule the world. The film could seriously work as a bleak view into a disturbingly scary, fictionalised future. Except, it’s set in the present, and in the present, as we know, there are about 800 TV channels in India, of which a majority are news stations, none of which make big bucks, if they make any profits at all.When the film eventually reveals the dangerous practices employed by his TV station, you may wish to laugh. But you don’t. Because this is an Emraan Hashmi flick my brothers. No one walked into the theatre looking for a story. They want s** and Sufi songs. There is no s**. There are lots of Sufi songs. Damn, what’s the point then.
