Yet another Bollywoodification of a real life story – that’s Rustom for you!

A period drama set in 1959, it brings to the silver screen the case of K M Nanavati, who was accused of murdering his wife’s lover!

The much publicised case described as “the 3 shots that shook the nation” translates into 150 minutes of relentless melodrama and over acting! Apart from Akshay, who looks dapper in his white Navy uniform, the loose narrative fails to hold our attention. 2.5 quints out of 5 is all that it deserves .
