Boss Movie Review
Cast: Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Ronit Roy
Director: Anthony D’Souza
Producer: Ashwin Varde
Akshay Kumar’s Boss had a lot of expectations riding over it and all we can say is that the movie is just super high on action and comedy but makes less sense (as expected, again).
The movie’s aim is solely focused towards entertainment and only entertainment, which you might have figured out by the dialogue promos itself. Boss is definitely not something that will leave you stunned or amazed but it will tickle you, intrigue you and entertain you.
The Malayalam remake has everything into it from drama to some dishum dishum, from dance to some killer dialogues and that’s how it’s gonna please you. Akshay Kumar fans just couldn’t stop whistling away everytime he delivered a punch line.
Boss is about the shaky relationship between a father (Mithun Chakraborty) and son (Akshay Kumar as Boss). Boss is not very fond of his father and vice versa and is the right hand of a local don named Big Boss. But of course, Boss is the anti-hero, the tweener, the good-gunda who will steal your heart no matter what crime he does.
Boss’s little brother Shiv (Shiv Pandit) is in love with Ankita (Aditi Rao Hydari) and is dragged into a controversy by a cop named Ayushman Thakur (Ronit Roy) who plays the negative role. And the twist is that the cop is also the brother of Ankita. But as you know, Akshay Kumar is always there to resolve issues and that’s why you have to go watch the flick!
Akshay Kumar is like always, the best personality on screen but there is nothing ‘new’ that we get to see of him. His dialogues and punch lines need a bit of freshness and maybe he should go back to his old films’ action style rather than these I-hit-you-and-you-explode kind of bullsh**. Or maybe he just needs to start doing more versatile roles. Sonakshi Sinha apart from looking above average, performs with the same degree. Aditi Rao Hydari looks frigging stunning especially in her bikini scene, the only time when the crowd was alive without Akshay being on-screen. Ronit Roy is brilliant and we know he can give us any sort of a performance you ask of him. Did you watch his Udaan? You should.
Overall, Boss will not surprise you or give you something which you haven’t seen or heard yet. Just like every mass entertainer, it will make you laugh a little and then have you wonder what’s so funny about it. If you’ve shelled out money to watch Shahrukh Khan throwing a stove at a guy in Chennai Express, atleast Akshay Kumar will make you believe he can.
