Roy-ally messed up!

Director- Vikramjit Singh

Rating - **

Beautiful picturisation, strong characters and good music, Roy is the accumulation of all these ingredients. The storyline of the film revolves around a thief, Roy(Ranbir Kapoor) who is involved in many mysterious thefts, especially of paintings and Kabir(Arjun Rampal) who plays a filmmaker is interested in this man's story and incorporates that into his films. On the other hand Jacqueline Fernandez attractively portrays her dual character, Ayesha, a film-maker and Tia, an artist. Jacqueline's twin factor works with both the actors and their sizzling chemistry makes the film worth a watch. How these three character's lives integrate together in one dramatic, romantic and nail-biting thriller is what the story about.

The first half of the story deals with two love stories that goes parallel and is very slow. Till the interval it takes you in extreme confusion, wondering how the second half will shape up.

Vikramjit Singh debuts as a director with this film and succeeds to bring a fresh tale uninspired from any Hollywood flick and delivers it with a strong cast. If you want to see a Hollywood style thriller love story with a desi tadka, you can opt for this one. It was needful to have such a strong cast, as Vikramjit fails to impress us with his direction. The first half of the story demands your patience and commitment, and the second half is also the same until and unless you come to understand some part of the film when it comes close to the climax. Mr Singh made a very hard attempt at being artistic, but was unable to succeed at it. Apart from all this, Himman Dhamija pulls off to capture the scenery settings of Malaysia exceptionally well. Had the director Viramjit and editor Dipika Kalra done a better job on the editing desk, it would've tipped the odds in its favour. 

The star cast of the film plays their part commendably well. The handsome hunk Arjun Rampal gives an impressive performance donning the directors hat. With his drool worthy looks and acting skills, he makes the character strong enough to take away the audience's attraction.

Talking about Jacqueline Fernandez, the actress has given her best performance so far playing two characters simultaneously in the film. Her look as Tia is uber chic and stylishly dressed & accessorized, while she as Ayesha is a simple girl who manages to win our hearts .

A brilliant actor like Ranbir Kapoor is wasted in the film. On his part he plays his character very well and within a short screen time he manages to leave his impact on the audience. This character could have been done by any actor, but according to me his presence was essential to deal with such a dilatory story in the first half.

Some of the best of the music industry including Ankit Tiwari, Amaal Mallik and Meet Bros Anjjan have composed music for its songs, which have already won the hearts of the film goers. The placement of Chittiya Kalaiya was quite odd, otherwise all songs are placed well and decently picturised.


Verdict- Not focusing on the story, watch it for the impressive performances of the main cast and the scenery settings of Malaysia.
