One of the worst gangster films ever. In fact, it isn't even a gangster movie, but an insipid, done-to-death love triangle masquerading as one. What's bewildering is that the Director, producer, writer, editor, and basically the entire crew excluding the cast are all exactly the same. And going by the Director's and writer's track records, the prequel was certainly no fluke. Maybe just one of those films that just didn't work out right from the onset - probably an aberration on their resume.
Finally to Mr. Akshay Kumar, why oh why do you do this time and time again? Follow up one quality film (in this case the spectacular "Special 26") with two to three turkeys (and I'm not even talking about box- office performances over here). I'm already beginning to shudder at what "Boss" is going to turn out like.
Another thing that's finally put to rest with this film is the debate over Mr. Kumar's acting chops. He's proved many a time before that he's a good actor. But with this film he also proves that he's good, but not a great actor - because he simply doesn't seem convincing in the hard- hitting, serious portrayal of a real-life mafiosi (an act that a much junior actor like Emraan Hashmi pulled off with confidence, elan, and oodles of conviction). Guess, he should stick to lighter films like "Special 26" or action roles like the ones in "Khakee" and the "Khiladi" series. Imran Khan's and Sonakshi's Sinha's aren't even worth wasting precious ink over.
