Special 26 - Movie Review

Image Source

I know most you must have already seen the movie but I had started writing this post and then just left it mid way because I felt lazy. So thought I should complete it and post it anyways.Better late than never right?

The plot (no spoilers I promise)

Ajay (Akshay Kumar) and Sharma (Anupam Kher) along with their gang pose as CBI officials and raid businessmen and politicians (Based on some real life incidents). In order to prevent such fake raids and arrest them the original CBI (Manoj Bajpai) and Jimmy Shergill and team try to plot a consipracy against them. The whole movie is about this cat and mouse chase between the two teams

The cast

Since, the story is the hero here, all the characters get almost the same footage. Neeraj Pandey (the director) has been aptly able to extract good performances from each every member of his cast. Akshay Kumar in a serious role is like a fresh breath of air. Manoj Bajpai looks and enacts his part to the tee. Anupam Kher is his dependable self. Jimmy Shergill, Divya Dutta and Kaajal Aggarwal ably support them.

The music

Nothing note worthy here infact heard that Akshay Kumar has sung one song. But didn't realise it while watching the movie.

What I thought

There are a certain things that I felt were lacking. For example there is no build up to how Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher build this gang and meet the rest of the characters in this gang. Also, the reason given for Akshay Kumar to start these crimes is a little frivolous. 

But overall the film is good watch with a great story and maintains a racy pace throughout, except for the romance scenes between Akshay and Kajaal (Yes, a lot of people felt that this track was not needed at all, but I feel it was needed to provide a background to Akshay's character, however the 2 songs could easily be cut from the movie). Do watch it for some good acting skills, direction and the fun thrills that the chase between the police and thieves gives.

My Rating

You must must watch this one.
