Although the movie has its funny moments but let the truth be told its very much inspired by Salman Khan blockbuster "dabangg". If you have seen "dabangg" you will be better off don't bother with Rowdy Rathore.
Akshay has a double role. Akshay # 1 is a pickpocket, thief, a thug but with a very good heart. He meets Sonakshi and instantly fells in love so does Sonakshi. Music is very below average and you wouldn't want to hear the songs second time. It is latter revealed that Akshay # 2 is a very brave police officer in a remote village of India and gives the local thugs and gangsters a very difficult time but latter dies and leaves ground for Akshay # 1 to fight with all the bad guys alone. Fights and action scenes are also average. Akshay Kumar is seen doing unbelievable and impossible all through the movie. In many fight scenes he is shown fighting with 50-100 bad guys all alone.
The first half of the movie is more funny but in the second half specially the last half hour near the climax it gets very boring because you can easily predict what's coming.
Sonakshi Sinha is wearing very revealing and sexy sarees all through the movie and she does look beautiful. I also like some of her dance moves. She is showing off whatever she has and whatever she can so you won't be disappointed in that department.(probably the only highlight of the movie)
In the end such movies are not meant to be logical and only thing matters if you have a good time or not. I didn't have such a fun time because I have seen many many better movies of the similar genre, Dabangg, Ready and Bodyguard to name a few. If you have nothing better to do go for it.
