Ruslaan (Aayush Sharma) is determined to prove that he’s not just the son of a notorious terrorist. His dream is to join RAW, India’s premier spy agency, to redeem his family name. However, his unwavering moral principles often lead him into perilous situations he never anticipated.

His fortunes take a turn for the better when he’s taken in by the honorable Major Sameer (Jagapathi Babu) and his caring wife. With his singular focus on serving his country and restoring his reputation, Ruslaan is willing to pay any price.


Ruslaan emerges as a well-mannered individual despite enduring the harrowing loss of his entire family. He boldly ventures into perilous missions, often defying his superior, RAW agent Mantra (Vidya Malvade), to pursue the most dangerous terrorists alone.

Director Karan L. Butani appears intent on spotlighting Ruslaan’s valor in every scenario, portraying him as an indomitable figure from start to finish. Penned by Yunus Sajawal, Mohit Srivastava, and Kavin Dave, the film’s narrative unfolds with stylized action and unexpected twists, providing ample opportunities for extravagant action sequences and stunt choreography.

However, the climactic revelation fails to fully resonate, despite sustained anticipation throughout the film. Aayush Sharma delivers a commendable performance, but falters in moments requiring heightened emotional depth, hindering the audience’s connection with Ruslaan’s inner struggles.

Newcomer Sushrii Shreya Mishra, portraying Ruslaan’s love interest Vani, also shines in dramatic action sequences. Despite occasional interruptions by superfluous musical numbers, the screenplay maintains a steady pace.

The film brims with thrilling moments, yet Ruslaan and his accomplice’s ability to navigate treacherous situations feels overly simplistic and lacks depth.

Rating: 3/5

In essence, “Ruslaan” prioritizes adrenaline-pumping action over logical coherence, catering primarily to audiences seeking excitement. If you favor action-packed spectacles over intricate plots, this formulaic thriller might provide occasional entertainment.

Jagapathi Babu delivers a compelling portrayal, blending virtuous policing with heartfelt paternal care for the orphaned child of a terrorist. However, the script lacks the necessary depth and conviction, and character development could have been more robust. Overall, we rate this movie three out of five stars.
