R Rajkumar became hit due to performances of Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha.
Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha were awesome in R Rajkumar.
The film R Rajkumar did business of more than 65 crores. The film had been super hit. The business of the film got affected due to release of Dhoom 3 in the last week of December 2014 which did business of more than 230 crores.
It had been directed by Prabhu Deva and produced by Viki Rajani and Sunil Lulla. The music of the film had been composed by Pritam. Shahid Kapoor worked for Drug racket holder Sonu Sood. The racket was controlled internationally by Sridhar who operated it from Malaysia.
Shahid Kapoor fell in love with Sonakshi Sinha, who was the nephew of Ashish Vidyarthi, who was also another drug racket holder. Sonu Sood compromised with Ashish Vidyarthi with the condition that he wanted to marry Sonakshi Sinha. Shahid Kapoor challenged him that he would not allow Sonakshi Sinha to be married on the day of Dussehra, instead he would marry her.
The rest of the film was related to oppression of Ashish Vidyarthi, keeping Sonakshi Sinha within 4 walls. At last there was furious action between Sonu Sood and Shahid Kapoor resulting in Shahid Kapoor killing Sonu Sood. He also killed the international drug dealer.
The music of Pritam was successful. The songs “gandi baat” sung by Mika Singh and Kalpana Patowari, “mat maari” sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Kunal Ganjawala, “saree ke fall sa” sung by Antara Mitra and Nakash Aziz became smash hits. Shahid Kapoor is second best dancer in India after Hrithik Roshan. He rocked the screen with each of his dance performances. Sonakshi Sinha was graceful at every stage of the film. The performances of Sonu Sood, Ashish Vidyarthi, Asrani, Achut Potdar and Mukul Dev were per excellence.
The film became super hit and ended the dry run of Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. Both required a hit. Both should do better job in future.
