Raja Natwarlal is a simple con act that has too many flaws. Emraan Hashmi essays the title tole of an endearing small time conman who falls in love with a bar girl (Humaima Malick).
Life goes on until Raja gets greedy and wants to go for a big catch so that he can marry his lady love. That’s when the trouble starts. Along with his crime partner Raghav (Deepak Tijori), Raja makes a grand plan to swindle Vardha (Kay Kay Menon), a billionaire based in Cape Town who is obsessed with cricket.
In all of this Raghav is killed by Vardha’s men and Raja is out to avenge the loss. He seeks the help of a seasoned crook Yogi (Paresh Rawal). Whether Raja is able to garner help from Yogi and manage to come out of the clutches of Vardha forms the rest of the stoy.
Raja Natwarlal is shot in various locations within India and abroad and looks good but then it ends there as the film lacks content.
Emraan Hashmi as Raja and Paresh Rawal as Yogi are likable and Humaima Malick who has very little to do looks good. A good actor like Kay Kay Menon is saddled with a part which is nothing but laughable. After seeing him in this film you feel he deserved to be conned.
Director Kunal Deshmukh looks lost and it seems he was in a hurry to just complete the film as it lacks clarity.
Non of the songs in Raja Natwarlal are worth listening. The film is just scenes put together that are very predictable and there is nothing new or exciting. Even Emraan Hashmi’s smooching scenes cannot save this film because they are forced and could have been avoided.
Raja Natwarlal can best be avoided.
The film had a lot of expectations as everyone was waiting for this Emraan Hashmi starrer but then Raja Natwarlal falls flat in every department. R...1.5
