Director: Raja Menon
Actors: Akshay Kumar, Nimrat Kaur
Rating: 3 / 5
Pictorially this movie felt like last year’s film Baby, but it certainly is different in all senses. Less in cinematography, it has no heroic angles at all. One of the most simplistic and genuine movie in recent times. It focuses heavily on story and sticks to it throughout its running time. It has a great scenic creation of Kuwait Iraq war sight.
Akshay Kumar blends himself as a soul of this whole story line. He has perfectly underplayed his character without any starry effects. The way movie wanted its leading actor to be, he has set himself entirely like that. Nimrat Kaur is a decent support and has played her role effectively.
Raja Menon frankly hasn’t done anything to raise movie standards. The good part is that he made sure nothing is out of place. Doing nothing bad and supporting the story line authentically is a good experiment that he has done.
Overall, a genuine and a simple flick, that focuses only on the story line.
