Rustom Movie Story/Plot
The king of action is back after the successful launch of “Airlift” and this time he will be seen as a navy officer. Though we are still unfamiliar with the original plot of the movie as the script has not yet been disclosed, however we can guess from the poster of the movie what this film will be about. Akshay Kumar will be appearing as Rustom Pavri with Illeana D’Cruz as his wife, Mrs Pavri. Esha Gupta will most probably appear in a negative role. From the caption “3 shots that shocked the nation” and the naval outlook, it can be inferred that the script will be highlighting a murder case in the late 50s.
The case was about Navy Commander Kavas Maneckshaw Nanavati who killed his wife’s lover with three shots. Nanavati confessed his crime and surrendered himself. He was tried for murder but as the case went on, Kavas Maneckshaw Nanavati gained the reputation of “Honorable killer”. He was eventually pardoned of and was relieved of charges after three years. This is what we can say right now but the mystery will be solved on 12 August. We wish Akshay and co best of luck for “Rustom“. Hope it will perform well overall.
