New Delhi: Die-hard fans of Emraan Hashmi must have been waiting for this moment. A film where Emraan is not chasing witches, neither is he confused because he loses his memory a lot.
'Raja Natwarla', directed by Kunal Deshmukh of 'Jannat' fame, revolves around a small-time crook with a heart of gold, Raja, played by Emraan. With supporting actors like Paresh Rawal and Kay Kay Menon, the film looks like an entertaining Bollywood potboiler.
Is the film based on Amitabh Bachchan's '70s hit 'Mr Natwarlal'? Will Emraan woo his fans with his street-smart antics? Prajakta Hebbar of IBNLive Movies is catching the first day, first show, waiting to find out.

10:06 AM: #RajaNatwarlal's trailers show #EmaraanHashmi as a small-time crook, with a heart of gold :)
10:13 AM: "Kismat choti si bacchi hai, boss. Usee hide-and-seek khelna pasand hai." Hehehehe #EmraanHashmi is the perfect conman. #RajaNatwarlal
10:14 AM: The song #DukkiTikki isn't that catchy, though. We expect more from a #KunalDeshmukh film. #RajaNatwarlal
10:19 AM: #EmraanHashmi portrays the nonchalance of the crook and the vulnerability of a lover very well. He's flawless. #RajaNatwarlal
10:24 AM: #EmraanHashmi and #DeepakTijori are thinking of trying out the 'lambaa haath' instead of the good old 'haath ki safaee'. #RajaNatwarlal
10:29 AM: #DeepakTijori is comvincing as the middle-aged crook and family man. #RajaNatwarlal
10:30 AM: #HumaimaMalik is only average as the sultry bar dancer and #EmraanHashmi's love interest. #RajaNatwarlal
10:34 AM: What is with the songs in #RajaNatwarlal? Very bland, and very forgettable, they kind of kill the buzz.
10:46 AM: #PareshRawal is awesome as the retired con man, Yogi. #RajaNatwarlal
10:52 AM: #PareshRawal declares himself as #EmraanHashmi's guru and decides to teach him the tricks of his trade - the 'lambaa haath'. #RajaNatwarlal
10:55 AM: "Kheenche hue kaan se mila hua gyaan hamesha yaad rehta hai." Hahahaa! #PareshRawal is awesome! #RajaNatwarlal
11:01 AM: Damn. Kay Kay Menon as the psychotic millionaire crook and cricket fan is super scary. #RajaNatwarlal
11:15 AM: Interval. #RajaNatwarlal has been fast-paced and interesting so far. We've got to know the characters and have begun to sympathise with them
11:28 AM: Bhai waah. #EmraanHashmi wears his "tapori" clothes in South Africa. #Swag #RajaNatwarlal
11:36 AM: Sheh. #HumaimaMalik's character is a major downer in the film. She's such a wet blanket. #RajaNatwarlal
11:55 AM: The film is picking up speed after the interval. Too many things are happening, but the con is looking pretty hilarious :) #RajaNatwarlal
12:16 PM: Hahahaa! The climax for #RajaNatwarlal is too funny. Even if it is slightly expected. #RajaNatwarlal
12:24 PM: Why are they explaining the whole story again? We got it, dude. #RajaNatwarlal
12:29 PM: Pretty entertaining, #RajaNatwarlal has no boring moments.
