Boss Movie Review: Movie Boss is perfect for a festive season, where the spirit is much tolerant of mistakes and makes everything palatable.
This week’s movie: Boss starring Akshay kumar, Shiv Pandit , Mithun Chakraborty , Danny Denzongpa , Aditi Rao Hydari and Ronit Roy. Boss is director Anthony D’souza second venture with Akshay Kumar after Blue .
The movie is inspired by the old time hardcore masala entertainers of the 80’s. So it has everything from Love between brothers to Conflict between idealistic father & much misunderstood son. The plot has a Haryanavi background, with high octane action sequences.
Surya (Akshay Kumar) disowned by his idealistic father (Mithun Chakraborty), a school teacher. While Surya is busy searching a new new identity for self; his life takes an unexpected turn. He saves the life of Big Boss ( played by Danny), the transport king and a kindhearted goon . Bog Boss owns Surya and starts mentoring him. He gives Surya a new name, Boss.
Boss has a younger brother, Shiv (played by Shiv Pandit). Shiv, who is in love with Ankita (Aditi Rao Hydari), sister of ACP Ayushman Thakur (Ronit roy), beats Home Minister’s (Govind Namdeo) son. ACP Ayushman, a ruthless and a cruel corrupt cop, who can do anything to come in the good books of Home Minister, becomes spiteful towards Shiv. Here, Boss comes in the picture, thoroughly entangled in between Big Boss and the minister, he makes saving Shiv and his family, his one point agenda.
Boss is a larger than life movie. Every relationship portrayed is dramatic. Be it that of a son craving for his father’s affection, or a brother deeply hurt by the plight of his younger sibling.
The Performances and Behind the Scenes effort
Akshay kumar has mastered such roles. What if there’s no heroine opposite him. He can made you laugh, cry and thrilled by his performance.
Boss, is a comeback movie sort of for Danny. His role could have been more.
Shiv Pandit manages to do a decent jon in movies. He performed well in Shaitaan. Now it’s Boss.
Mithun Chakraborty is good, as always.
Aditi Rao hyderi is doing what a heroine does in a bollywood movie; a lots of crying and a lots of skin show.
Jonny lever as Zorawar Singh and Sanjay Mishra as Trilok maintain a good laughter tempo along with Akshay Kumar.
Special mention must be made of Ronit Roy. He’s quite impressive in this anti-hero
performance . Last time he was seen in a negative role in Udaan, playing the role of a really nasty father. In action sequences as well, he matches Akshay pounds for pounds.
The Director has managed to roll out a pure entertainer, which is actually his style. The film making is technically sound; and it’s high on cinematography while capturing the action sequence by slow motion capturing cameras.
Music is good.
What could have been Better
The Editing could have been better. The viewer many a times gets an impression whether the movie required a particular scene, sequence or character. In addition, it slows down the pace of the movie as well. One such example is the character played by veteran actor Parikshit Sahni. Playing Boss’s uncle, one wonders, was he required at all?
This movie is perfect only for a festive season, where the spirit makes everything palatable. The rating below also takes into account the dialogues which command whistles, cheers and claps.
Movie Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars
