Cast: Adithya Menon, Kavita Radheshyam and Shakti Kapoor
At this juncture, when we see big budgeted Bollywood movies getting drowned, here is a movie which is very small in its budget, but very huge in terms of entertainment.
Main Hoon (Part-Time) Killer was previously known as Main Hoon Rajinikanth, while it is the same film for which superstar Rajinikanth went to the court to stop its release. Rajinikanth felt that this one might defame his Fan base, but unfortunately, the film has least, to speak anything offensive against the superstar!
The film tells the story of a Stupid, Funny and Wicked C.B.I Officer-cum-Contract Killer Rajinikanth who goes in for a ‘Killing-Spree’ undercover assignment from another Naive, Funny and Wicked Millionaire – Bachchan to deliver 5 Crores hard cash back to him, which is, however, nabbed by a corrupt cop Hariprasad Venkatesh Naidu.
Things gets awry when Hariprasad Venkatesh Naidu dies out of blue, while making love to his beloved sex-worker Mallika. Mallika who also happens to be a die-hard fan of South Indian superstar Rajinikanth, sees a golden opportunity to grab the Bag full of money and run away. Mallika waits for Train to return to her village Bhanpur at Hanumangarh Railway Station wherein Rajinikanth comes in search for her with an intention to kill her and take back the money to where it belongs.
South Indian actor Adithya Menon is just terrific as Rajinikanth, and so is Shakti Kapoor, who plays a naïve gangster Bachchan. The film actually belongs to the duo and they have performed their respective roles brilliantly. Kavita Radheshyam as sex-worker Mallika is again very good in her portions. Sunil Pal, Reema Lagoo and Ganesh Yadav are good as always.
Faisal Saif has done a commendable job as the writer and director by executing a decent comedy entertainer in a small budget. The cinematography and editing is good. Since the film is mostly based on a Railway platform, hence the production values are very less. The music of the film is also a Plus point that contains 3 foot tapping numbers.
