Only decent Akshay Kumar film after Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi
3 January 2012 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

Angaaray is a copy of State of Grace, the film is directed by veteran director Mahesh Bhatt and he is one reason people should like this movie. The movies main focus is on how a police inspection Amar(Akshay Kumar) is sent to investigate on the underworld of Banglore. The film is sort of similar to Ashaant(1993) another Akshay film where Kumar gets shocked when he find out his friends are in the underworld. But, in Ashaant, Kumar doesn't try to reform his friend. Here, it's different. The film drags with romance and comedy but catches up with more suspense and mystery. The sleazy underworld life is shown well, cinematorgraphy is good. But, the some scenes should have been editied better. Also, Kumar's voice modulation is a bit irritating. The film does end with the reformed friends and Akshay defeating the forces of the villain(Gulshan Grover). The screenplay is good, most decent Kumar film of that period. Direction by Bhatt is good(Mahesh is awesome). Acting is good, but Pooja Bhatt only looks good, she can't act. But, sadly this movie was also a flop. I think it should have at least been a hit. Overall, one of the few decent movies of Akshay I have seen during that period where he was only flopping.
