In September 2019, media reports speculated that Prabhu Deva will direct Salman Khan's next project after completing Dabangg 3 and will be released on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr (22 May 2020; the date which Khan's shelved film Inshallah was speculated to release).[18] An article from Deccan Chronicle mentioned the project as a sequel to Wanted (2009),[19][20] being titled as Wanted 2 but neither was confirmed from the makers.[21] In October 2019, the film was reported to be the remake of the 2017 Korean film The Outlaws.[22] On 18 October 2019, Salman Khan revealed the film's title as Radhe through the motion poster of Dabangg 3; also confirming it as an Eid 2020 release.[23][24]

Filming[edit]

The film's principal photography commenced on 1 November 2019.[25][26] Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff were cast in pivotal roles, the former in her second collaboration with Khan after Bharat.[27] The first schedule of the film took place on 4 November, at Mehboob Studios in Mumbai.[28] In November 2019, Tamil actor Bharath was reported to be part of the film;[29] he did not confirm.[30] Gautam Gulati also confirmed his presence in the film.[31] Khan introduced new guidelines for the cast and crew members to be followed on the sets which was meant to lay emphasis on maintaining discipline on the sets and maintaining a buddy-system for helping newcomers or juniors.[32][33]

The second schedule of the film took place on 21 January 2020 in Goa,[34][35] where few chasing scenes featuring Khan and Hooda were filmed.[36] For the climax shot, the makers spent ₹7.5 crore on the visual effects.[37] The shooting of the film was supposed to wrap up by 21 February 2020,[38] but the makers planned another schedule in Thailand, which was then cancelled by the COVID-19 outbreak.[39] It was reported that Khan was working on the post-production of the film at his farmhouse,[40] however Khan's manager claimed that there was no plans for post-production as all the production works were halted as per the directives of the government.[41][42]

The shooting of the film was resumed on 4 October 2020, where few patchwork scenes and a song featuring Khan and Patani were filmed.[43] The film was wrapped up on 14 October 2020.[44]

Release[edit]

Radhe was originally scheduled to release on 22 May 2020,[11] but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[51] The distribution rights of the film was sold to Yash Raj Films upon the initial release,[52] with T-Series bagging the music rights and Amazon Prime Video acquiring the digital rights, but later in January 2021, it was reported that Khan had signed a new deal with Zee Studios,[2][53] and sold the entire rights of the film (including theatrical, digital, satellite and music rights) to the company for ₹230 crore.[54][55] The deal was later renegotiated citing the pandemic situation, with the revised bid being ₹190 crore in May 2021.[56] On 13 March 2021, Khan revealed the release date to be 13 May 2021 (Eid-al-Fitr).[57]

On 21 April 2021, Khan further announced that Radhe will be released in all operational theatres,[58] and in pay-per-view and digital streaming method through Zee Plex and ZEE5.[59] It became the first Indian film to have a hybrid release,[60] as theatres in Mumbai and Delhi were closed.[61] The move was welcomed by film trade analysts and exhibitors as a possible "turning point" for the Indian cinema's economy during the pandemic.[62][60] Advanced bookings for the film in the Middle East regions (United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain) began on 29 April 2021, two weeks before the release schedule.[63]

Khan, in a video-call interaction, apologised to the theatre owners for the poor collection of the film due to a limited theatrical release.[64] [65] Khan also assured the plans of a theatrical re-release when the pandemic subsides.[66][67]

Zee Plex revealed the starting price of the film as ₹249 per view in late April 2021,[68] allowing the users to watch the film through digital streaming as well as in leading DTH services.[69][70] Furthermore, ZEE5 announced Radhe Combo, a package priced at ₹499 allowing users to watch the film and access contents of the platform for one year.[71] Internationally, the film was made available for renting and streaming on Apple TV.[72]

Khan and Zee Studios announced that the revenues of the film will be donated to COVID-19 relief funds.[73][74]

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

Upon release, Radhe met with highly negative reviews from critics and audiences alike, many of whom praised Hooda's performance, but criticized the screenplay and story.[75] On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a rating of 9% based on 11 reviews and an average rating of 1.6/10.[76] IMDB gave the film 1.8/10 the lowest rated film for Salman khan on the website.

Anna M. M. Vetticad of Firstpost gave Radhe a rating of 0/5 and wrote "This film is so generic that it would be a challenge to write down the plot from A-Z after a single viewing." She also criticized the movie for not giving the lead actress enough screen time by stating, "The movie treats its ‘heroine’ as nothing but a body on display whose sole job is to give the hero someone to fall in love with, dance with and protect".[77] Stutee Ghosh from The Quint gave Radhe a rating of 0.5/5. Calling it a "cringefest" she wrote, "Radhe is a loud, senseless and offensive film that has little regard for women, the police force and the audience's intelligence in general". She further stated, "Radhe is frustratingly tone deaf to how it promotes police brutality and the almost suffocating toxic masculinity that is sprayed on like a cheap deodorant".[78]

Shubhra Gupta from The Indian Express gave Radhe a rating of 0.5/5 and wrote, "Radhe is a mindless, moronic mess of a movie in which Salman does every single thing he's done a zillion times".[79] Soumya Srivastava from The Hindustan Times called Radhe a torture of a film and one of Khan's worst movie. She described Radhe as a "cringeworthy movie" and stated, "The movie is nothing but a collection of action sequences piled upon each other as Disha's tight dresses, some dance numbers, and goons saying 'apun' a lot act as fillers".[80]

Saibal Chatterjee from NDTV gave the film a rating of 2/5 and opined that "The film dumps a whole lot of dross on us, albeit with a certain degree of surface gloss." He concluded by saying "Radhe has enough inducements for diehard Salman Khan fans to keep them interested."[81] Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh gave Radhe a rating of 2/5 and called it "Disappointing". Calling its screenplay and writing "lackluster" he wrote, "Radhe doesn't meet the sky-high expectations, The film has a clichéd plot and a predictable formula remodelled with new packaging".[82]

Anupama Chopra of Film Companion wrote, "The Salman Khan starrer is so free of craft that it hurts; Prabhudeva delivers yet another loud, numbing, pointless paean to the cult of Salman Khan".[83] Namrata Joshi from The National Herald wrote, "Radhe is an empty vessel of a film that tries to sail through by making a lot of loud noise that signifies nothing" Criticizing the framing of Patani's character she further wrote, "Diya itself is acutely offensive. It just shows the acutely conservative mindset of the makers and of the Salman Khan universe itself, where men and women are hardly ever in a relationship of equals, where the man is this self-anointed “protector” of the woman and the woman is seen as some kind of a property or possession".[84] Sushri Sahu of Mashable India criticized Radhe for glorifying police brutality, gun violence and toxic masculinity. She further wrote, "Radhe is repetitive with not just the dialogues but the rogue cop-on-a-cleaning-spree formula. It doesn't even spare the minimum of one rape assault trope. The film, in fact, looks like a brochure to sell Khan's already popular brand. It is out-and-out ‘bhai’ porn".[85]

Box office[edit]

Radhe grossed 4.3 crore in the international markets on its opening day.[86] In its 4-day extended weekend, the film grossed 14.50 crore (US$1.98 million), with approximately 69% of the revenue coming from the GCC territory.[87]

As of 25 June 2021, with a gross of 00.06 crore in India and 18.27 crore overseas, the film has a worldwide gross collection of 18.33 crore.[7] According to Bollywood Hungama, the film received 0.06 crores in India and 18.27 crores overseas.
