Movie Review

Rating :

Verdict : One-time watch

Roy is a beautiful movie, well at least, location and cast wise. Movie opens with a visual delight, Beautiful exotic foreign locales, and attractive colors paint your imagination, and super hot and sizzling star cast of Arjun Rampal, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ranbir Kapoor.

Unfortunately movie is dead set slow and steady decline in pretense, after initial attraction. Movie got heavy dose of style but lack basic things, like substance and story line.

Fairly a unique concept, unfortunately the execution is slow, it’s not that director Vikramjit Singh doesn’t try or Stars doesn’t try to pull it off, but it just doesn’t come together.  Main plot is serious and intelligent thriller but fails to deliver.

Story:-
Roy (Ranbir Kapoor) is a mysterious thief whom nobody seems to be able to get their hands on. Kabir Grewal (Arjun Rampal), a film maker, seems to be the only one making a profit from all of Roy's roberies. That is, by making multiple films based on Roy's life and robberies, all achieving high success. Ayesha (Jacqueline Fernandez), another filmmaker, is the new girlfriend of Kabir, who is also a playboy. Ayesha gets irritated with Kabir's casanova attitude and leaves him.

She goes to a foreign land and meets Roy, but is unaware of his identity. They fall for each other and then return Kabir with the police. He asks Ayesha (now Tia) to come back with him. However she disagrees and runs away with Roy. The police try to catch them but are unable to. How these three characters' lives merge together in one dramatic, romantic and suspenseful thriller is what is in the story.
 
Positive Points:-
Vikramjit Singh impeccable taste for classy execution on location, visual richness, and ultra hip costume designs. Jacqueline Fernandez looks like a dream girl. Music is fairly good. Background score is sublime. The Concept of movie is fairly unique and original. It is thriller, so there are moments where you find yourself wondering, what’s next?
 
 
Negative points:-
Plot is weak and movie becomes a little too much of drag to watch. Transitions are weak, and there are a lot of unsolved, unnecessary mysteries, which are not mysteries at all. The biggest problem with Roy is the central cast. Fernandez isn’t seasoned actress, she looks good and that is the end of it. So to place her in a dual role only means double disaster. Arjun Rampal could have done so much, but he doesn’t explore his character neither show any range. Ranbir kapoor is in Cameo role, mostly in two main expressions – a bored smile and a bored frown.
 
Technical Points:-
Debutante director Vikramjit Singh try to infuse English movie thriller veneer for Indian Audience, which is done remarkably well and with taste. The cinematography and background score work excellently for this film. Every frame is a delight when it comes to the picturesque elements. The movie Sublime to establish an entire pseudo-intellectual plot, which is gripping and makes you believe that movie, is thriller, which is not. The film has action scene, which are executed with Finesse.The editing is little lose, had it been a notch more tight and poignant, it would have given movie much needed pace.
