Boss Movie Review
Akshay Kumar’s latest movie Boss has hit the theaters. After the debacle of once upon a time in mumbai doobara, a lot is in stake for Akki with this movie. And much to my surprise, Akki has succeeded to some extent.
The movie had a strong opening in the box office and the movie has got decent reviews from the audiences too.
Boss, apart from being a comedy, is a solid father-son melodrama like Agneepath with violence everywhere. There is also a scene with a teenager being attacked viciously. Although, due to Akshay Kumar’s presence there is some comedy to make things light. The comedy is perfectly low-brow that does not have wit in its checklist but belly laughs. For example, there is a human rocking chair and cheerleaders in lehenga. There is also a catchphrase “Apne ko kya hai, apne ko toh sirf paani nikalna hai” which I confess, made me laugh every single time. Except once, which was surprisingly heartfelt and came out of nowhere.
The second-half of this breakneck-speed, blues-chaser of a movie opens with a long chase sequence through the narrow gallis of a dusty small-town in North India where we last saw Akshay Kumar having a ball in ‘Rowdy Rathod’ and ‘Khiladi 786’.
This is a fast paced, mindless masala entertainer which is worth a watch to keep boredom at bay.
