Storyline

Virat (Akshay Kumar) is among a battalion of military officers that comes to Mumbai on vacation. Virat is also a secret Defence Intelligence Agent who cannot lie low, much to the irritation of his friend and sub inspector. During a bus ride, an attempt to frisk passengers for a lost wallet leads Virat to something much bigger. Within minutes, the bus is blown into pieces and he helps cops nab the carrier of the bomb, who escapes from the hospital only to be caught by Virat again. Using tact, Virat follows one clue at a time hoping to track down the terrorist on whose orders the sleeper cell terrorists plan to cause mayhem in Mumbai.

Akshay Kumar action as usual with good story
7 June 2014 | by (Karachi Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Another hit by Akshay Kumar. the film is all about some real action and good story. Akshay has played different role in this similar to special 26 rather than his roles like boss. the movie is around a soldier who on holiday but gets on a mission to save Mumbai. A Defence intelligence agent who takes on the gang of sleeper cells without telling about his mission to his family friends as well his love ( who is Sonakshi Sinha).Akshay plays role of soldier who has courage to do anything to save his country. flawless acting with tremendous acting as usual A movie to watch with family. A complete blockbuster and in nutshell PAISAA WASOOL MOVIE
