Bullett Raja (2013)

A common man who transforms into a gangster revolts against the very system he once obediently followed by declaring war on the police, the government, and the industrialists.

I love the sentiment. I love the justice this movie seems to call for; how the main character stands up for what's right regardless of what that'll cost him. Regardless of the hierarchy of power and government. The intention's pure, and it sounds simple when you read the above, but the plot's a mess, riddled with politics and notable people dying left and right, and all of a sudden there's a real protagonist involved? It's not the main character?

Feels almost like they were writing the script as they went along. Even if it does have a couple good twists along the way they both come into play after said new protagonist arrives, and then it ends with a bang, and the showdowns are quick but ferocious.

I remembered the construction site climb from last time I saw this, many years back - maybe one of the first Bollywood movies I was introduced to, but not much else. I wonder if it'll leave a longer-lasting impression now. The scenes I feel I should remember the most are the showdowns towards the end, and the first truly merciless execution scene with the bulletproof vest, and of course the burning car that flies high in the air.

Compared to similar movies there's surprisingly little focus on the romance, and not all that many dance scenes (three?) but all in all... it's a solid one. And clearly a Bollywood one.

The fights are relatively realistic too. Or more so: exaggerated in a good way. Not so much it's totally bonkers. More so just hella cool.

I do love Bollywood. They got the fire. They got the color. They got the fight.

The main two actors are Saif Ali Khan and Jimmy Shergill by the way.

Vidyut Jammwal comes later. Loose cannon and end, but great too.

That's all I'll write.
