Review Summary: Bullett Raja had the scope to bring about some content in the current crop of massy entertainers and could cater to the intelligentsia but Tigmanshu Dhulia's inept attempt ruins all such chances. Quite a downer!

Bullett Raja’ plays shamelessly to the gallery, starting with a raunchy item song even before we begin to establish the lead characters. That kind of sets the tone for the rest of the film; the narrative follows the predictable formula, interspersing a ga

His deliciously twisted characters stew in a mess of their own making. Bullett Raja has flashes of fire but mostly it seems to be hobbled by a misguided sense of machismo. Everyone struts — including Vidyut Jamwal who makes an appearance as a dynamic cop

BULLETT RAJA is Tigmanshu Dhulia's most 'commercial' mass appealing film thus far...

Bullett Raja is a bigger disappointment than any other mediocre films made, simply because it is helmed by a damn good director
The setting is mofussil India -- a small town in Uttar Pradesh.

This film is an utter waste of time, and that’s putting it mildly. It does not know what it wants to do or where it is going. The story makes little sense; there isn’t a big goal or problem in the film, it just goes meandering along. The flawed script is

Bullet Raja is a mediocre actioner thanks to the inconsistency of Saif Ali Khan as the lead actor and Tigmanshu Dhulia as the filmmaker who ensure audience doesnt deserve them in such messed up arrangements.

So take a deep breath, forget the past and you will walk away from the film thinking ‘time-pass’. Otherwise, you will be severely disappointed with there being nothing new at all. Just a bunch of performers, trying to make a kid’s toy gun look real.

Ironic. Tigmanshu Dhulia gets undone in his heartland Uttar Pradesh. Fox Star Studios in association with Brandsmith Motion Pictures and Moving Pictures along with the talented Tigmanshu Dhulia go for a desi Katta (read raw and rustic) of entertainment not new for Dhulia but with bigger canvas and bigger stars in 'Bullet RaJa' and misfires in the excitement. 'Bullet Raja' is an example of how a good talent in the push and pull of commercial success and artistic progress gets stalled for big budget benefits of production houses and stars whose highest motivation point are the weekend collections not the audience reactions.

Tigmanshu Dhulia is on a dream run because not only he is sinking his teeth into worthwhile movies like Paan Singh Tomar, Saheb, Biwi aur Gangster/Returns (as writer and director) and GOW (as actor), he is also finding takers for his kind of cinema.

Planet Bollywood
At its core, almost every Tigmanshu Dhulia film has a common essence: men short on morals, often on money, striving for respect but wielding enough power to lead - a broken runner and his band of dacoits in Paan Singh Tomar; a nawab who kills for contract
Mumbai Mirror
The grapevine has it that many production houses come up with Box Office flops with an intention to show losses on the balance sheets, Bullett Raja looks like an idea born out of such a thought! And for Saif, Langada Tyagi was much better than Bullett Raja aka Raja Misra!

Tigmanshu Dhulia made a mark in the small Indie dominate genre of action-thriller-dramas with films like Paan Singh Tomar, Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster and its sequel. So when he manages to rope in a somewhat reputed star like Saif Ali Khan, you expect Dhulia

Did I laugh a few times? Absolutely. Like when Khan escaped those chasing him by jumping through a glass window and when he landed people around him started clapping. Give Dhulia a Word document and put Khan on the camera for 138 minutes, and you're bound

Bullett Raja is more ego trip than cinema, according to Paloma Sharma. In order to enjoy Bullett Raja, it is important to remember that this is not cinema -- it is simply an ego trip.

Tigmanshu Dhulia, who is known for thought-provoking brooding films like Saheb Biwi aur Gangster and Paan Singh Tomar, goes into the ‘commercial territory’ and ends up making a boring film in the form of  Bullett Raja.

This has remained the backdrop on which Dhulia has based his movies upon.

-Overall, ‘Bullet Raja’ is Saif’s most commercial film till date. While his looks, character and the thrills showcased are the film’s plus points, a regular story and an even predictable story line makes this film just below average.

Overall, the movie is very watchable, with just the caution about lots of violence, gun and bullet shots

Different but entertaining with commercial masala

You would think that when the two of them come together to make an action flick, you will definitely get some intellectual high drama running to packed houses.

On the whole, Bullett Raja is a routine revenge drama which will not find favour with the audience. Its performance in the single-screen cinemas of mass centres may be just about okay but it will fail to cut ice with the multiplex audience.
