5 Reasons To Not Miss Rocky Handsome

After the critically successful Madras Cafe in 2013, and a few appearances later, the brawny man, John Abraham, is back with a new action thriller, Rocky Handsome. The film boasts of never-seen-before action sequences, taking action to the next level, which the Indian audience has never witnessed. The makers have been true to their word because the trailer is definitely gripping, with John killing it with his looks and maneuver. While we do go gaga over him in the trailer, here are five facts about the film that you should know, which will make you root for Rocky Handsome all the more.

1. Pure Raw Action: The film is primarily an action film, with a brief romantic segment, which Shruti Hassan gives a special appearance. It has eight specialized action sequences, which John calls as his Eight Item Numbers. The film showcases realistic hand-to-hand combat, novel Knife art forms and Tai Chi, all of which John went to Thailand to train for, for about more than a month. He trained with international fighters to get the technique right. So, yeah, we are waiting to watch the action-packed scenes that John is so flawlessly pulling off. 
 
2. Burliness: John takes his body very seriously, and so do we. He is an atheist; the only religion he follows and the only sacred place he visits is his gym. So for Rocky Handsome, John underwent rigorous training, claiming to work for more than 14 hours a day to shoot for a half an hour sequence. So all you people, who will go to watch the movie for the beef, John won`t let you down (he never has on this front).
 
Reasons to Watch Rocky Handsome
 
3. Director plays actor: Known for ingenious films like Drishyam and Mumbai Meri Jaan, Nishikant Kamat, the director, is also acting in this film. He plays the canny villain here. Since it was an eleventh-hour decision to play the role, he had to shave his head for the role because he found no other alternative to look similar to the guy who would be playing his brother. We are waiting to be wowed by Nishikant!
 
4. High on Action, High on Emotion: The film is centered on the emotional bond between the new little cutie on the block, Diya Chalwad, and John, who he she calls Handsome. Diya is a gymnast in real life and was supposedly very disciplined for her age on her sets, being the only person who knew the script and dialogs verbatim. Girls like guys who are good with kids. Rocky Handsome too has a soft corner for this little girl and their tender and affectionate relationship will be a delight to watch.
Cute fact: Diya lost her tooth before the shoot began, it grew back till the shooting was coming to an end.
 
5. Official Remake of a Korean film: The film has taken official rights from the Korean Film, The Man from Nowhere, which was the highest grossing film in 2010 in Korea. Our Bollywood version is altered a bit for the sensibilities of the Indian audience. A different color palette is used here to enhance visual appeal. The original movie had shades of black, dark blue and blue-black. 
Incipiently, John was very inspired by the movie Taken and was keen to make something on those lines, but he came across The Man from Nowhere and decided to take this further.
 
According to John, his favorite genre is action. He has been idolizing Sylvester Stallone after watching Rocky IV. He was so impressed after the movie that he ate a dozen bananas soon after, to gain weight and a physique like him. So the title of the film is like a silent homage to the actor. So let’s hope that this film rips the box office just as John does to his enemies and gives an action emotion thriller as promised. We. Cannot. Wait.
