Everything is LOUD & EXTRA ...
10 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

If anything is to say about this movie .... Everything is Loud & Extra ! Extra Action, Extra Songs, Extra Sound, Extra Dialogues, everything is just loud & extra.

May be that takes this movie to take great ups & great downs, there is no such thing in between.

This is typical Bollywood movie with good songs, great action, some emotions BUT with south Indian touch.

The movies takes following ups & downs of your likes, Don't like: First 30-40 mins story doesn't take even a start. Unnecessary songs, Akshay going behind Sonakshi is not that entertaining (& unnecessary) that makes you feel sad (for tickets)

Like: Once the story gets starting then there is no stopping, at least for some time. Yes, till intermission you actually get involved in movie. There is not sonakshi & any other dramas, just a story.

Don't Like: After intermission, movie still goes to the first part of unnecessary things happening, movie going bit slow & no where near the story things happen.

Like: Yes, the end part or climax, this is again coming back to story & see lots of action & fun.

It's really nice to see Akshay in this role, following Salman. Truly Akshay's best movie in recent times. Akshay has taken the part very seriously & reminds KHILADI !

Sonakshi ... really don't know why she is in movie, but Bollywood film & without actress .. can't imagine, may be that's why she has done her job of looking cute & nice. But sometimes, she looks Rowdier than Akshay (specially in dance steps)

Other South Indian Actors have done a BAD job in showing their BIHARI tones ....Those are laughing moments !

Anyway, if you want to watch a bollywood movie, this may be good movie in recent years....

Overall 6/10 !
