Strong Points:- Akshay Kumar, Wonderful performance by Nimrat Kaur and Purba Kohli and Kumud Mishra once again act very good.
Week Points:- Poor Songs and Very Dramatic
Critic Rating: 4 out of 5
Business Rating: 3 out of 5
Akshay Kumar once again prove that he is entertainment number one in Bollywood. He shows solid act. Beautiful Nimrat Kaur is the real surprise pack. She prove that ‘The Lunchbox’ was not a fluke. Kumud Mishra and Purba Kohli score big with wonderful performances.
Director Raja Krishna Menon has chosen a noble concept and he should be lauded for that but he falls in terms of execution as film goes into over – dramatic mode plus at times the treatment is too high handed. He should take few notes from Neeraj Pandey school where lead actor does not start dancing with item girls in middle of serious issues surrounding him and tricolor can not be used anytime as per convenience to lift the film.
One Word About the Film: Go for Akshay Kumar with real life thriller stories.
