Times have changed, but certain film-makers are still stuck up in the era gone by and that reflects in their cinema. That’s what you realise when you watch RUSLAAN.
The film highlights a terrorist act that shook the nation a few years ago and how the life of an innocent goes topsy-turvy when he’s falsely framed as a terrorist [KHUDA KAY LIYE and more recently NEW YORK also depicted this]. But the gravity of the situation doesn’t come across on the screen because the writing is amateurish and the execution, childish.BY BOLLYWOOD HUNGAMA.COM
Ruslaan [Raajveer] lives with his parents and a younger sister. He’s in love with Samaira [Meghaa Chatterjee]. One day, a series of blasts occur at various railway stations of Mumbai and the cops arrest Ruslaan for this act of terror.// <![CDATA[//
Director Mohan C. Sharma looks at a serious issue [train blasts in Mumbai], but there’s nothing in the film that moves you or makes you think. In fact, the love story [between Raajveer and Meghaa] is also under-developed and the terrorist track is poorly written as well.
Why is Ruslaan picked up by cops, is never explained. Also, Ruslaan is thrown in a lock up, but the execution is such, it gives an impression that he’s a petty thief, not a terrorist. Seems like no detailing whatsoever has gone into the scripting [writers: Brahma-Dhruv]. Music [Raees Jamal Khan] is the sole saving grace. ‘Maula Maula’ is the pick of the lot.
