Much-awaited and talked about T-Series project Roy has finally come out in theaters. All eyes were focused on the release and now it is out. Well, now the question is whether it will live up to the expectations of the viewers or will go flat? Let’s analyze it. Vikramjit Singh’s directed Roy is apparently glossy and this shine is what drags the attention of the viewers. Besides, as the film has been targeted as thriller, it also grabs the eyeballs. But let be straight in mentioning that Roy is not a thriller at all. The first big disappointment about the film is that it does not tread on the path which was told to the viewers before the release.

Roy is the story of Kabir Grewal (Arjun Rampal0 who is a filmmaker but a womanizer as well. He is working on the third installment of his robbery series called Roy, in which Roy (Ranbir Kapoor) plays the title role. For the shooting of the film, he leaves for Malaysia where she happens to be meet with a London based filmmaker Ayesha Aamir (Jacqueline Fernandez) who he starts loving. Soon, his script starts taking inspiration from his life experiences with Ayesha. There is a weird chemistry also oozes out between Roy and Tia (Jacqueline Fernandez). What happens next is what forms the climax of the movie?

Jacqueline Fernandez plays the double role in this film. The plot of the movie is passable. Since the film is not the one, which was targeted such as thriller, the viewers’ interest level instantly drops. The scripting is mundane. There are many flaws in the screenplay. The biggest one as mentioned above that it is not a thriller rather an emotional philosophical drama. The script keeps shifting from real to reel life. The characterization of many actors like Anupam Kher and Nawazuddin Siddiqui is really bad. Direction is simply average. The film goes on a slow pace that also irks the audiences.

Music is fine. Editing is average. Cinematography is brilliant and this is the main highlight of the film – the locales capture the attention.

Arjun Rampal does not appeal at all. Ranbir Kapoor plays an extended cameo in this film and he too disappoints with his performance. Ranbir has been taken on board to grab the audience, since only Arjun Rampal cannot bring up plenty of viewers to theaters. Jacqueline Fernandez looks gorgeous as she is already, but cannot find a meaty role to display her histrionics. Others just fill the bill.

Final Verdict:

On the whole, Roy is a below average movie that does not have any charms to attract the eyes and souls. The big disappointment is that it is not a thriller as it was targeted.
