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.

Great flick
5 June 2014 | by akkumaralok1988See all my reviews

Holiday delivers thrilling scenes with relish and energy. It is a slick Action thriller that keeps you engrossed, enthralled and captivated all through, thanks to its fascinating premise and a watertight, sharp Screenplay. Holiday' is one film that will be liked by both the masses and the classes equally. It's sheer brilliance. It's fierce and it leaves you clutching to the edge of your seat plenty of times. The absorbing pace of the movie, the intelligent thinking of the proceedings, and Akshay Kumar gratuitous action sequences wins the show. Holiday is mostly a delectable film. This is Akshay Kumar's most engaging entertainer in recent times.
