Starting from Idiot, heroes of Puri Jagannadh films have same kind of attitude. Likewise, Ishaan too has got regular rogue character. In fact, film’s story revolves around him. After he is cheated by his girlfriend, Ishaan starts hating girls. However, he comes forward to help a police officer’s family which is affected by him. Ishaan does have bad opinion on girls, but he takes utmost care on the police officer’s sister Mannara Chopra who is a singer at a bar. Ali’s track was regular which we had already seen in the film Pokiri, though he provides laughs at places. Then, a psycho makes an entry. He is not a regular psycho. He has good sense of humor and is honest sometimes. Due to thin line story and dead slow narration, nothing much happens on screen. Puri indeed tried to bring laughs with the psycho’s character but it was misfired. Unbearably, the villain was given even a love song. Ishaan utters a dialogue with the villain in the end, “I don’t have any bad opinion on you,” shows hero’s character.
Ishaan made an impressive debut. With tower height and good looks, he played the role aptly. However, he needs to improve his dancing skills. Heroines Mannara Chopra and Angela Krislinzki were limited for glamor show. Both the heroines provided enough of glamor feast in songs. Thakur Anoop Singh is too good as a psycho. His sequences with Ishaan are hilarious. In fact, he is one of the major assets of the film. Ajaz Khan is good as police commissioner and Subbaraju is okay. Ali provides entertainment here and there. Other artists were okay.
Puri Jagannadh has been making numerous films with same story and same hero characterization. Audiences are bored watching films with same content, but the director seems like not in a mood to come up with a unique story. However, like his previous films, Rogue too has some powerful, punch and hilarious dialogues. Sunil Kashayp’s music was big drawback. Except for couple songs, other songs and background score were pretty ordinary. Mukesh G’s cinematography is mediocre. Production values are decent.
Except for Puri mark dialogues, the film caters almost nothing for any section of audiences. Thus, the film may not please any section of audiences.
