'Rocky Handsome' tweet review: John Abraham-starrer delivers nothing more than a few action-packed sequences
John Abraham is the co-producer of the film along with Sunir Khetrapal.

Directed by Nishikant Kamat, 'Rocky Handsome' features John Abraham, Shruti Hassan and Sharad Kelkar in pivotal roles.

As much as the trailer has revealed, the film revolves around a man who sets out to take vengeance against a drug mafia after they forcibly take away an eight-year old girl, with whom the lead shares a special unexplainable bond.

It'll be interesting to see how director Nishikant Kamat, who have given us directorial hits like 'Drishyam', fares in this film as an actor-cum-director.

While the film is an adaptation of the Korean film 'The Man from Nowhere', it marks an important milestone in John Abraham's career considering it's a sort of solo come-back for the actor. Last seen in 'Wazir', will John Abraham able to carry the film on his shoulders? Will the much anticipated action sequences set a new benchmark in Bollywood? Kriti Tulsiani from IBNLive is inside the theater to find out.

9:43 AM: Live tweet review of @TheJohnAbraham-starrer #RockyHandsome to start in a bit. Stay tuned.

9:52 AM: Directed by #NishikantKamat, #RockyHandsome stars @TheJohnAbraham, @shrutihaasan and @SharadK7 in pivotal roles.

10:02 AM: Stay tuned to find out how @TheJohnAbraham-starrer #RockyHandsome, an action-packed remake of Korean film #TheManfromNowhere turns out.

10:07 AM: #RockyHandsome opens with @shreyaghoshal's melodious track #Rehnuma hinting of @TheJohnAbraham's romantic past with @shrutihaasan.

10:16 AM: Hah! If there's Goa in a movie, there has to-has to be a vintage Church in the backdrop. #RockyHandsome

10:21 AM: .@TheJohnAbraham character Kabir Ahlawat's unexplainable bond with his young neighbour Naomi is simply heart-warming. #RockyHandsome

10:26 AM: Set in Goa, issues like child trafficking, prostitution, drugs, organ trade and brutal killings have been highlighted. #RockyHandsome

10:41 AM: It's pretty much amusing to see that all the baddies of #RockyHandsome are evoking chuckles, not threats. None at all.

10:49 AM: There's only so much of #JohnAbraham sporting a black dapper suit, walking in slow-motion that you can take. #RockyHandsome

10:51 AM: Finally! Some power packed action sequences on-screen now. #RockyHandsome

10:57 AM: Slow build-up of @TheJohnAbraham's mysterious past keeps you invested (to an extent). #RockyHandsome

11:08 AM: It's half time. So far, #RockyHandsome is about clichéd-driven story line and frequent display of a straight-face-six-pack-abs for nothing.

11:13 AM: #NishikantKamat as an actor is neither bad nor good. Or maybe, we just had high our hopes too high. #RockyHandsome

11:18 AM: #NishikantKamat is impressive in beginning of the second half. (Yes, finally) #RockyHandsome

11:22 AM: .@SharadK7 is definitely one of the finest actors in #RockyHandsome

11:23 AM: Not only @SharadK7, the entire team of actors playing cops are brilliant. Making us laugh every now and then. #RocmyHandsome

11:25 AM: "Ye aadmi hai kya?", says one of the investigating cops about #JohnAbraham's character. EXACTLY our point. #RockyHandsome

11:29 AM: #RockyHandsome is picking up momentum in the second half. Some pace, at least.

11:40 AM: As long as there are action-packed punches, #JohnAbraham is good; but his dialogue delivery isn't as impressive. #RockyHandsome

11:48 AM: Special word for cinematography. #RockyHandsome has been shot amazingly well. Just the right combination of long and mid shots.

11:57 AM: One-man-army concept doesn't seem to be leaving Bollywood anytime soon. Too unrealistic, but okay. #RockyHandsome

12:05 PM: Even as the film is about to end, there's no strong emotional connect. #RockyHandsome

12:11 PM: While some of the supporting actors are over-the-top, they still add buoyancy to the narration. #RockyHandsome

12:13 PM: From dragged narration to poor execution; #RockyHandsome fails on so many levels.

12:16 PM: Yes, there were some action sequences commendable enough but overall #RockyHandsome fails to create an impact.

12:23 PM: While the songs fit into the storyline well but didn't really add anything much to the film. #RockyHandsome

12:27 PM: It's all about some 'masala' action scenes, a clichéd-driven climax and a slow storyline. #RockyHandsome

12:28 PM: Thank you for staying with us throughout the tweet review of #RockyHandsome. Stay tuned for more updates.
