Akki the best ever action hero in India
1 June 2012 | by GrandMasterrrrSee all my reviews

Just finished watching Rowdy Rathore and I have to say this was one of the best performance by an actor, and one of best action masala movie in recent time, Akki shows those his contemporaries how to pack a punch with style, how to kick like Bruce Lee and how to look deadly like tough man Arnold Schwarzenegger. What an AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

It has been quite some time since I watched a quality raw action movie in bollywood, with an actor who is technically better than all Bollywood action heroes, just watch the action sequence in the flashback scenes,, it was raw, gory and yet executed with some skills and technique, and wasn't just a one punch like other actors and the goons go flying. It was brilliant performance in both characters, with brilliant cinematography, breathtaking scenes and outstanding acting by Akshay Kumar. Sonakshi Sinha did her part well and looked beautiful.

Finally, go and watch it, because you would regret if you miss such an entertainer in the big screen. 10/10
