Rush

Rush, like Ram Gopal Varma's Rann three years ago, rushes into the cut-throat world of TRP-driven competition among news channels where news if not discovered is created in the newsroom. Ram Gopal RushVarma told that in Rann, and now director Shamin Desai takes audiences into the ostensibly murky chat-room politics of news channels where news-baron Roger Khanna (Aditya Pancholi) gets reporters, civilians, politicians and criminals bumped off to make news. Just like that. Far-fetched? Yes. But Rush has its adrenaline-rushing moments in the second-half when the narrative picks up momentum and moves steadily towards a climax that is not entirely edge-of-the-seat. Ambitious crime reporter Sam Grover (Emraan Hashmi) gets sucked into a web of crime created by his over-reaching dangerously-connected channel boss. Rush is not the first film about a young ambitious professional losing moral and ethical equilibrium to attain success. Some of the chase sequences are expertly done and the whole theme of the newsmaker's descent into compromised journalism makes for some riveting moments. Emraan Hashmi as the backbone of plot performs decently and has more speaking lines than what he usually does in films.

RushVERDICT
Rush does have its sluggish chunks in the storytelling. But the narrative gathers strength from the basic plot structure where a television journalist is shown to be on the run.
