- The film’s proposed name was Jai Ram Ji Ki but on the suggestion of Saif Ali Khan it was named Bullett Raja to gave it a more gangster feel.
- All male characters have grown a moustache to fit the role in the film
- Earlier,actor Irrfan Khan was revealed to be a part of the film but he walked out because of hectic schedule and date clashes for his other projects. Later,he was replaced by martial artist turned actor Vidyut Jamwal.
Tigmanshu Dhulia also managed to present this human emotion quite well in his most of the films.
Tigmanshu’s hasil and Paan singh Tomar are my all-time favorites.
Coming back to bullet raja, it loud and boisterous. Saif ali khan is looking great in promos. I have high expectations from this movie and as I go by my gut feel I am sure that Tigmanshu Dhulia must have done full justice to the screenplay and narration would be progressive. Other star cast is also seems to be apt and over all presentation seems to be impressive.
I would give this movie 3.5 out of 5 stars, five days before the release.
