Saif Ali Khan perfected the rustic act in Omkara and got his stunts right in action movie Race 2. In Bullett Raja, he combines both acts. Does he succeed?

The fiercely arrogant, rustic-yet-stylish Saif dominates the trailer of the Tigmanshu Dhulia movie. Playing a rustic gangster, he is seen firing bullets, riding a bike, dancing with a scantily clad babe, killing mercilessly and even romancing the heroine (Sonakshi Sinha). Basically, he does everything that is required of a box-office 'Khiladi' or 'Dabangg', and yes he's 'Rowdy' too.

The remnants of his character from Omkara Langda Tyagi linger on, and we don't mind it, as the actor has added fresh mannerisms to his character in the movie.

The actor has worked hard to get it right apparently. He would sit in the sun for hours to get that perfectly tanned look required for his role.

Sonakshi Sinha is back in her traditional avatar and yet manages to look different. Ravi Kishan briefly appears in the trailer dressed as a woman. Jimmy Shergill seems to be playing Bullett Raja's aide as he is seen with him all the time and is even his partner in all the killings.

So what's Bullett Raja all about? Set in Uttar Pradesh, the film deals with the underworld in the state.

It also stars Gulshan Grover, Chunky Pandey and Vidyut Jamwal in key roles.
