Salman Khan’s much awaited action thriller, Radhe, was recently rated U/A by the CBFC with an approved run-time of 114 minutes i.e. 1 hour and 54 minutes. With this, the Prabhudheva directorial has emerged the shortest film of Salman Khan’s career, and according to insiders, one can expect a fast pace narrative of Salman as Radhe taking on the drug lord, Rana played by Randeep Hooda. A source reveals that it was a conscious decision of Salman and his team to keep it short, as the audience are slowly getting used to consuming crisp content in the action space, just like it happens in the west.

Interestingly, the run-time is lesser than the Korean film, Outlaws, which has inspired Radhe. The narrative of Radhe is enlaced with three songs – Seeti Maar, Dil De Diya and Zoom Zoom, with the Radhe title track being used at multiple instances as the background score. The 114-minute narrative also has four major action set pieces, which includes SK’s introduction and the climax. The movie is gearing up for an Eid 2021 opening on multiple platforms ranging from theatrical in key overseas markets like UAE, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and UK, to a pay per view format across India (not withstanding some territories which are open for theatrical exhibition) on Zee Plex, Tata Sky, Dish TV, Airtel and other platforms.

While Radhe is the shortest film of Salman’s career followed by Dabangg 2, Bodyguard, Dabangg and Tubelight, all in the vicinity of 120 to 130 minutes. The three 300 crore grossers featuring the superstar - Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai - were upside of 150 minutes (2 hour 30 minutes).
