Rocky Handsome is an action-thriller film directed by Nishikant Kamat. It features John Abraham and Shruti Haasan in the lead roles. It is a loose adaptation of the 2010 Korean film The Man from Nowhere. John is co-producing this film under his home banner John Abraham Entertainment with Sunir Khetrapal’s Azure Entertainment. The film’s story revolves around a man who sets out to take vengeance against drug mafia after they take away an eight-year-old girl, with whom he shares a special bond.

Shruti Haasan has been cast as John Abraham’s wife, while a seven-year-old child actress named Diya plays an important character. Nathalia Kaur, who was seen in the item number Dan dan cheeni in Ram Gopal Varma’s Department, plays the mother of the child. But the of our film is the action. “We are getting action directors from abroad—Eastern Asia—for the stunts,” said Kheterpal. According to Sunir Kheterpal, the shooting in Hyderabad will continue for about 45-50 days. While the second schedule will be filmed in Goa, the third will be in Mumbai.

A drug-mafia infested Goa plus menacing mobsters plus a little girl who goes missing plus a muscled man on a mission is equal to ‘Rocky Handsome’. What all of it basically comes down to is this: a sculpted John Abraham donning a black singlet–pajamas–combat cap, walking slo-mo down corridors, beating the c—p out of sundry bad guys. Or slashing holes into ‘em. Same difference. That is the sole purpose of this film.John Abraham’s Rocky Handsome is a double: the screen splits into two, with both Rocky and Handsome come striding towards us, just in case we were confused. He only appears bad, see, he’s actually a good guy with a terrible past.

All the soundtracks and background music has been composed by Sunny Bawra and Inder Bawra. The music rights have been acquired by T-Series. This film is set to capitalise on the Holi weekend, the logo of which is out now.
