Pokkiri Raja was funny as heck, maybe because the cast portrayal was ridiculously humorous. On the Bolly-hand, BOSS IS ludicrous where nothing is logical or scientific, but for the sake of entertaining, it DOES deliver content.
Also, the songs are catchy & full of beats. Just because the plot is too shabby for the even grotesque story idea, There is no need to blabber about how bad your expectations were thwarted, is there? We aren't expecting potential cinema from the makers either. Talking about the goodness, Ronit Roy's villainy demeanor is terrific and after his Udaan & Ugly, I am sure he is a busy man. I enjoyed watching him.
Akshay Kumar, for the first time, looked old on-screen. But his stunts were really good, not to mention how gravity-defying they were (Maybe because Cuaron's Gravity was playing in the next screen). Danny Denzongpa is good as well. And well, the women in here are puppets, no doubt.
Cinematography & editing is fine, direction is average. Humor has been worked out, but in an attempt to induce more, the writers lost the road. Some jokes are just too irritating, thereby making dramatic scenes into a mockery.
BOTTOM LINE: Although not much in this makes sense, it was a cool- afternoon watch. Recommended for people who have know what they have in store. 5.5/10. It doesn't bore.
Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
