The story is about Vikram Rathore (Akshay Kumar) who is an honest and courageous cop against the village gang-lord (Nasser). First half of the movie revolves around Shiva's lousy love story with Sonakshi Sinha.
Action-lovers audience will get disappointed in the first half of the movie, as this part just contains love scenes. Hope arrives when the other Akshay (Rathore) comes into with strong action scenes.
Rowdy Rathore is remake from Ravi Teja starrer Telugu film Vikramarkudu. The movie has many negative points like the strong Rathore fails to kill villains, but the other Shiva kills all villains, despite he was not shown strong in the movie anywhere.
Akshay Kumar is good, but not so nice in his lover boy role. Original Vikram Rathore grabs attention of the audience in his short role and also pulls off the action convincingly. Sonakshi Sinha has a major role only in the first half, while she appears rarely in the second half. Akshay Kumar's dancing chemistry with Vijay and Prabhu is good and well choreographed. Overall, Rowdy Rathore gets 3- out of 5 from TRP.
