Rocky Handsome review
It’s the climax of Rocky Handsome. Our hero has already decimated a dozen men. Bones have snapped. Blood has spilled. Bodies lie everywhere. Now the villain’s bodyguard — Atilla, I think his name is — has got a gun pointed at Rocky. All he has to do is shoot. But no; the man dramatically throws away the gun and opts for a knife fight. The two then embark on this beautifully choreographed, bloody dance in which they slice at each other. I’m sure it’s not a spoiler to tell you that things don’t go as Atilla had planned.
This set-piece action sequence feels like the most imaginatively crafted highlight of Rocky Handsome. The film is an almost frame-by-frame remake of the 2010 Korean blockbuster, The Man from Nowhere. Director Nishikant Kamat faithfully reproduces the story of a neglected seven-year-old girl who unwittingly gets embroiled with dangerous men who deal in drugs and human organs. Luckily, Nayomi has befriended her silent, never-smiling neighbour, also known as Rocky Handsome. Rocky may not be sociable but he’s essentially a oneman killing machine. He’s so fast that you can almost see a trace of admiration on his opponents’ faces before they crumble and die. Even when he is shot or stabbed, Rocky doesn’t flinch. He just does a DIY operation and removes the bullet himself.
