Raj and DK have always had their unique style. Be it the story they pick or the screenplay they execute or the humour they try. They had successes and failures but never succumbed to any formulae. However humour has been a core component of all their projects. Be it Shor in the city or 99 or Happy Ending or Go Goa Gone which was first of its kind. Gentleman is probably their one of the costly films , no wonder when it is starring the richie rich actor Siddhart Malhotra. Do the director duo crack it this time? Well the answer is mostly no.

Gentleman is a story of two characters Gauran and Rishi, both played by Siddhart Malhotra. Gaurav is the sundar and susheel which the title is talking about. He is a simple man looking for basic joys of life with a secured job , dreaming for a happy family and to live happily ever. He is idealistic guy who follows everything sincerely including traffic rules. His love interest is played by Jacqueline Fernandez who doesn’t really agree for his proposal. On the other hand we have Rishi who works for UnitX, a spy group who is supposed to work for national security. However, the team is led by Sunil Shetty who has mixed shades. What connects both the Siddharts is the rest of the story.

As usual, Raj and DK get the humour part right without using any conventioal methods. The conversations of Siddhart with Dalal especially tickle the funny bone. However humour is all the movie could get right. The movie has lot of stunts, a show off of the toned and chiseled bodies. The lead pair score full marks in the body aspect but the roles themselves are not so interesting. Of them Jacqueline gets a role of no substance. Siddharts role is interesting only to an extent. Supporting actors like Darshan and Rajit Kapur do their job well.

Lot of the movie is shot in Miami and cinematography is done stylishly too. This makes the film visually appealing however the style dominated the content which is unfavorable. Moreover a main suspense element is revealed in the interval itself which kills the second half of the film. Its lik the film did its suicide.

Gentleman is a film which tries too hard to tell a story with a half baked content and trying to cash in on Siddharts physical aesthetics, stunts and the directors trademark comedy.

So its only sundar (locales) , but the script is nowhere close to susheel. However, you will find Mr.Sids fans drooling over him in the cinema halls. Now you know whether the watch the film or not.
