Maybe this is the first time that I am reviewing an action movie made at such a grand scale having two of most worshipped action superstars of their respective generations, but still its good as this review will be full of praiseworthy words and I am definitely good at it. There are action fans, then there are hardcore action fans, and finally there are die-hard action fans. Now, with names like Hrithik Roshan & Tiger Shroff in the main leads, it is a great challenge for the director Sidharth Anand ( who has previously given us movies like Bang Bang, Salam Namastey, & Anjaana Anjaani, to name a few) and for the production house to live up to the massive expectations of the masses.

Further, when a vintage old production house like Yash Raj Films is not doing well as per the records of the past few years, it is indeed a humungous task to appease the audiences. But, surprisingly, the makers excel in not only giving us an action –packed entertainer, but also succeed in enthralling the audiences through a well-constructed plot with necessary and effective sub plots that succeeds in keeping the audiences guessing due to the suspense, high-octane drama, and unpredictable twist & turns, that will satisfy the cravings of thriller junkie as well. The action scenes are well crafted and beautifully choreographed by putting the martial arts skills of Tiger Shroff to supreme effect and the Herculian demeanor of Hrithik Roshan is befitting to his dominating, authoritative, and patriotic character of Kabir who has a streak of badass traits in him.

The experience of the light-eyed superstar shimmers in his performance as an actor as he keeps the audience on their toes in guessing who is the ultimate rogue or villain. Now, the action has everything from flying in the air out of plane in a jeep, gun shooting sequences, fist fights, jumping from bridges, cars & tankers blasting, hand combats, and old-school heroism that is trademark of Bollywood action thrillers. So, it’s a kudos to stupendous action choreographers namely Mr Oh from South Korea and Andy R Armstrong from Hollywood who have helped the Indian Cinema in pushing the benchmarks of the stylized action movies of Bollywood.

Last, but not the least, the picturization of songs & locations were also fantastic as the dance moves of Tiger never fail to impress us and obviously Vaaani Kapoor looked hot in the bikini with a toned hot bod in Ghungroo. So, we can finally conclude that despite its long length and some minor glitches, the action genre of Bollywood is also going international which is no small feat, and finally we are churning out global hits in which the love story doesn’t have a happy ending either way.
