Once you give a movie a title like Bullett Raja — king of misspelled bullets — there are a limited number of things you can expect from it. Stylized violence and punchy one-liners are some of them. Originality and actual plot are probably not.

In fact, picking out a plot from Bullett Raja's trailer seems downright impossible. The trailer is more a series of scenes strung together of Saif Ali Khan (known as Bollywood's chhote nawab, or little prince, because he inherited one of India's technically defunct princely titles) and trigger-happy sidekick Jimmy Shergill dancing, threatening, romancing and, of course, firing lots of weapons. Often soft-spoken starlet Sonakshi Sinha (herself daughter of a legendary actor and a former Miss India) makes a trailer appearance or two without uttering a single word, so one can assume she's the much more demure female lead, if the role even passes for that.

Bullett Raja, with subtitles, opens today at the AMC Veterans 24 in Tampa.
