Boss Review

Boss is a typical masala flick with clichés and we mostly see what we expected; nothing fresh. There won't be many surprises in the film. The point is most masala entertainers tend to be this way. You may find yourself laughing a little at a few silly one-liners and so on but there is nothing new to lookout in the film.

On the whole, BOSS is a full-on masala entertainer that's very clear of its intent. It is designed to magnetize lovers of desi commercial cinema and woo the BO. If you savor and relish old-school masaledaar entertainers, BOSS is sure to win you over. Watch this one -- it's a paisa vasool entertainer!


Boss is a typical example of 'fast food' flick. The action sequences are tossed in slow-motion while the narrative cooks at breakneck speed.

So once again while on one side it's said that the boss is always right, on the other side not many look up to a boss who is unable to look beyond himself. The choice is yours!

Boss, needless to say, is Akshay Kumar’s film all the way and there are several moments in it when he comes across as perfectly cut out for such antics.

What’s more, the voice of Amitabh Bachchan informs the audience right at the outset that the action is set at the very site of the battle of Kurukshetra. Boss is epic all right – an epic mess.

Boss expects you to laugh in the face of amazing stupidity. The jokes would struggle to make a guy attached to a nitrous oxide cylinder budge a facial muscle.

There’s no judging anyone for putting bread on the table, but it is depressing to watch them wading through a wreck like Boss because of (presumably) the lack of options in India’s film industry.
