Gabbar Singh Rajput (Akshay Kumar) creates his own vigilante military network called the Anti-Corruption Force (ACF) that eliminates the most corrupt individuals, from all walks of life, in a systematic manner. As pressure builds on Police and Government to track down the man who masterminds these killings, Balbir Singh (Sonu Sood) is specially summoned to head the task. He is aided by Suryam (Prakash Raj) who, though being just a constable in the mammoth Police force, is compelled by his instincts to see through the underlying design. Written by Anonymous

A Full-On Masala Entertainer!
1 May 2015 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A remake of the 2002 Tamil film Ramanaa, 'Gabbar is Back' is A Full-On Masala Entertainer! Its not an amazing film, but an engaging watch, nonetheless. Here's a film that's sure to work big time with the masses!

'Gabbar is Back' Synopsis: A grief-stricken man takes the law into his own hands when he begins to kidnap and murder corrupt public servants.

'Gabbar is Back' is high on entertainment & that honestly, does the trick. Sure, there are flaws here. The second-hour does get a bit tedious & the dialogue are unintentionally funny at times, but overall, this commercial pot-boiler hits higher on pluses than on minuses.

The storyline is simple, but the treatment is crisp & interesting. The protagonist's journey to punish the evil within our society, has moments of power. I'd like to single out that terrific sequence at a hospital in the first-hour & also the nicely done climax, which delivers a message with honesty.

Rajat Arora's Adapted Screenplay moves on a very fast-pace & offers some great moments. But, the second-hour isn't as good as the first-hour. Its a bit tedious & acts as a deterrent in the narrative. Even some of the dialogue, are unintentionally funny. Krish's Direction is pretty decent. Cinematography could've been better. Editing is pretty tight. Action-Sequences are excellent. Music by Various Artists, is alright.

Performance-Wise: Akshay Kumar as Gabbar, is in serious from. Its so good to see the superstar donning a part, that we often don't see him in. He enacts the protagonist with admirable conviction. Shruti Haasan is wasted. Sunil Grover is a pleasant surprise here. The TV phenomena essays an important part with great energy. Suman Talwar, as the antagonist, is loud. Jaideep Ahlawat is first-rate. Ishita Vyas is sincere in a brief role. Kareena Kapoor Khan & Chitrangda Singh appear in cameos.

On the whole, 'Gabbar is Back' has the potential to become a winner commercially. Go, have fun!
