Story Gaurav dreams of settling down with Kavya, the woman of his dreams, but she prefers a man who's more adventurous and willing to take risks. He soon stands to lose everything when a case of mistaken identity rocks his once-happy life.
Review With Mubarakan, A Gentleman and Judwaa 2, all exploring the concept of identical-looking people (whether its twins or doppelgangers), the popularity of films with the double-role trope has suddenly surged.
The movie has some good points as well as bad points as other movies. The action in the film is good but the story is a little bit dragging towards the end. The makers have done what they have to do to put their interest in making the movie look rich with high production values.
In A Gentleman, SidharthMalhotra plays two roles: Gaurav, who is safe, and Rishi, who is risky. His girlfriend (Jacqueline Fernandez) is on the receiving end of the confusion between the two identical looking characters.
Bullets are being sprayed recklessly in a swish suburban villa in Miami by a gun-toting bunch of undercover agents who are out to kill the leading pair of the film, but you will find yourself wincing at the sight of the swanky sofa and the carefully arranged cushions in the living room being shot to smithereens.That’s when you realise that SidharthMalhotra’s genre-blending action-romance A Gentlemen: Sundar, Susheel, Risky, by directors Raj and DK, isn’t working.
While the plot isn’t particularly riveting, the moments where some witty lines are delivered in a dead-pan manner by the lead hero are enjoyable. While Malhotra and his supreme attractiveness carry the glossy movie forward with some heft, Fernandez is given a glorified ditsy brunette role. She’s a young, entitled woman who over-speeds in Miami and then threatens to sue the cops for racism.It’s supposed to be cute and eccentric, but comes across as brattish behaviour.
There’s no unnecessary melodrama and that’s one of the redeeming qualities of A Gentleman. However, the songs that are inserted in between explosive action sequences serve no particular purpose.While it’s charming to watch Fernandez’ flexibility on a pole, the attempt to mix action and romance isn’t always successful here.
Barring a few well-executed action sequences and witty exchange between Malhotra and his mate at work, the film leaves you unmoved.Watch this film if you are looking for voyeuristic delight featuring two attractive people spar and fight the world for a stupid cause.
