Goofs

It is clear from the movie that Captain Maya Semwal (Pooja Chopra) is acting as the third-in-command of the covert unit after Major Jai Bakshi (Sidharth Malhotra). But there are two team members Lt. Col. Aubin Mathew (Maan Praveen Sirohi) as well as Lt. Col. Anees (uncredited actor) who are of higher rank. Normally one of them should be and will be the second-in-command after Col. Abhay Singh (Manoj Bajpayee), especially in a military organization. (Please check the award ceremony and shoulder badge of the team members.) See more »

Quotes

Pratap Malik: You are a soldier, who has never let me down. Do whatever you need to do, but these bastards should not win this battle.
Abhay Singh: Sir!
Pratap Malik: Abhay! I will always be proud of you. It is a pity, that no one will ever know what you and your unit has accomplished for this country.
Abhay Singh: Doesn't matter Sir. It's been an absolute honor serving under you, Sir. Jai Hind!
Pratap Malik: Jai Hind!

Aiyaary Review: A decent and entertaining action thriller but definitely not the best one of Neeraj!
16 February 2018 | by Prashast SinghSee all my reviews

Movie: Aiyaary (UA): Action Thriller - Hindi

Positives:

  • The performances of Manoj Bajpayee, Sidharth Malhotra and Naseeruddin Shah are simply the best thing about this film.
  • Some dialogues are crisp and very well written.
  • The action scenes are also good and well executed.
  • The background score is amazing.
  • Some thrills do work big time.
  • Humour has been used very well throughout the film.
  • The visual effects are surprisingly excellent.
  • Cinematography is impressive.
  • The first half starts on a terrific note and the surveillance sequences are gripping.


Negatives:

  • The writing is uneven: The film at times relies a bit too much on subplots.
  • The film doesn't have any major thrills or suspense to keep you glued totally.
  • Rakul Preet's performance is decent but her character is not very well written.
  • Like almost every Bollywood and Neeraj Pandey film, you'll find unwanted romance which slows the pace and affects the film negatively.
  • The climax is good but the ending is dragged a bit.
  • The editing is also disappointing as the film's length could've been easily trimmed.


Repeat value: Only for a few sequences

Overall, AIYAARY, the much-hyped action thriller is a film totally for the class audiences which can even entertain masses but given the fact that above anything else, it lacks the signature thrill quotient of Neeraj Pandey's previously acclaimed films, it might not go down well with everyone. The film clearly misses Neeraj's signature style of writing but as a whole he doesn't disappoint and due to many positives, he renders the film watchable and enjoyable to a certain extent. If for nothing else, just watch the film for Manoj Bajpayee: he just doesn't prove but instead certifies himself as one of the most talented Indian actors ever.
