Same movie that comes every Friday with different actors
24 October 2013 | by ajit2106See all my reviews

Akshay Kumar has taken an oath to laugh at his own one-liners, do mindless comedies, do gravity defying action scenes, some songs by Honey Singh and all other cheap techniques. Every Friday there is a movie like this, Actors, Directors and Producers or for that matter all the crew members are taking the ingredients from Masala Movie template and cashing the receipts of money. There is something seriously wrong with our Film Industry because they have many movies on the floors; they are merely interested in good cinema. Akshay Kumar has done a great job but he is gradually diminishing his own image.

'Boss' (Akshay Kumar) who becomes a mobster serving jail in his childhood. His father (Mithun Chakraborty) has parted ways from him and doesn't want to see his face again. Surya's younger brother Shiv (Shiv Pandit) is in police custody due and ACP Ayushman Thakur (Ronit Roy) abhors him, as Shiv loves Ayushman's sister Ankita (Aditi Rao Hydari). No Boss has to save his brother because blood is thicker than water.

It is a remake of Malayalam movie 'Pokkiri Raja 2010', which itself a very bad movie. The writing is absolutely absurd because many things come and go without any significance. Akshay Kumar enters the screen after 30 minutes and gets the he is the only person on the screen. Jokes and punches are lame, forced songs give screenplay a hard time to manage the narrative.

Sanjay Mishra & Johnny Lever have been wasted completely. Mithun and Danny do what is required. Shiv and Aditi love track never impresses as they both look indifferent. Shiv Pandit has done an astounding Job is "Shaitan" and he should probably refrain from such roles.

The show stealer is "Ronit Roy" as a menacing and ruthless ACP; he delivers the dialogs the perfect body language. He is the only thing which sticks in the mind.

There are some of the scenes which make you laugh. Otherwise it is really a headache to hear the overdone dialogs and emotional scenes.

Overall, it the same movie that comes every Friday with different actors and crew.
