1. This is the first time Akshay Kumar plays a Naval Officer in his career.
2. The Story, Screenplay and Dialogues writer of the movie Vipul K Rawal is an ex-navy man himself. He was responsible for guiding Akshay Kumar in the Naval ways. It is also one of the reasons why all the Naval scenes on Warship look authentic.
3. The warships used in the film are actual Warships from that era.
4. Actor Producer John Abraham had bought the rights to this script from the writer Vipul K Rawal earlier, however he decided not to make the film. Vipul then sold the script to Neeraj Pandey’s company Friday Filmworks
My Gut Feel and comments:
Tinu Suresh Desai debuted as director with a horror film 1920 London which was a below average film and was a flop at box office indeed. However with Rustom he seems to have got his act right this time.
Film promo is impressive and it looks like that creative team has managed to pull out an entertainer. Akshay Kumar is looking dashing and seems doing justice to offered role.
Akshay Kumar is a salable performer who works on moderate budget movies with decent content which increases the chance of box office success. Although Film is releasing along with “Mohenjo Daro” however with extended weekend due to national holiday of 15th August higher a chance that movie sale through reasonably well at box office. In recent time Akshay’s films like Special 26 and Babywere sincere efforts from his side with great entertainment value. As Rustombelongs to same banner chances of going it wrong drastically is negligible.
Going by my gut feeling I am giving Rustom 3.5 stars out of 5, five days before the release.
